Newswire: Michael Keaton doesn’t want you to get your hopes up about a Beetlejuice sequel

26 minutes ago | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Back in the spring, Michael Keaton was the subject of much “will-he/won’t-he” talk after word began to spread that he was signing on to play one of the villains in Spider-Man: Homecoming. He eventually accepted Marvel’s invitation, presumably so everyone could watch Bruce Wayne crash a high school dance. Of course, the speculation over this project hasn’t been quite on the same level as that of the decades-long discussion of a Beetlejuice sequel. Just last summer, Winona Ryder said she was at liberty to confirm the movie was in the works, figuring that if Tim Burton could do it, there was no reason she couldn’t.

That seemed like a good indication that the sequel would happen, but earlier this year, Burton’s rep had to issue a statement refuting the rumors that Beetlejuice 2 was in production. The disavowal wasn’t exactly the final nail »

Michael Keaton thinks the ship has sailed regarding a Beetlejuice sequel

12 hours ago | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

It's been nearly thirty years (really? holy shit) since Michael Keaton first brought Betelgeuse to life in the Tim Burton film and rumours of a sequel have been circling for almost as long. In the last couple of years that sequel talk has become much more serious with Seth Grahame-Smith working on a screenplay and both Winona Ryder and Tim Burton seemingly confirming that it would...

Beetlejuice 2: Michael Keaton knows "zero" about it

13 hours ago | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Mike Cecchini Simon Brew Jul 28, 2016

It looks like Beetlejuice 2 might not be happening after all...

If Independence Day: Resurgence has taught us anything it's that the idea of a belated sequel isn't as welcome as studio executives might think. That film's box office take is notably down on the original, and opinion has been firmly divided on the new movie.

It's a shame that Tim Burton, Michael Keaton, Winona Ryder, and friends never got Beetlejuice 2 together when it was first mooted (the cool and spooky animated series that followed is worth checking out, though). In the aftermath of Beetlejuice's success, there were plans to put together Beetlejuice Goes Hawaiian after all. It never happened of course, although in recent times, there's finally been concentrated talk of a Beetlejuice sequel. But even that has now been thrown into doubt by the man who played the title role, Michael Keaton. »

Stranger Things Season 2 Will Be a Sequel, But Why Hasn't Netflix Renewed it Yet?

16 hours ago | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Could Stranger Things get even stranger? If Netflix orders a second season, it sure sounds like it. While the creators Matt and Ross Duffer crafted the first season of their Winona Ryder-starring love letter to all things '80s cinema to have have a sense of resolution, they've got plenty on tap to continue the wider story of just what's going on in Hawkins, Indiana. "We wanted to feel like a big movie, so we wanted to solve that main tension of where Will went and what happened to him," Matt explained to reporters during their Summer TCA Press Tour presentation. "But then there's the bigger mythology behind what happened, so there's definitely a lot of dangling threads at the »

Winona Ryder Says ‘Stranger Things’ Reaction Is ‘Overwhelming’

16 hours ago | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Winona Ryder has seen a career renaissance thanks to Netflix’s “Stranger Things.” “The reaction has been completely overwhelming, in the best possible way,” Ryder said of the thriller, which is her first TV series. Ryder has been a household name for most of the past 30 years, thanks to roles in late-’80s hits such as “Beetlejuice,” “Heathers” and “Edward Scissorhands.” Her film debut came at age 14 in 1986’s “Lucas.” Also Read: Johnny Depp's Ex Winona Ryder Calls Abuse Allegations 'Unimaginable' The star, whose career took a tumble after a 2001 shoplifting arrest, has returned this summer with one of her biggest hits. »

‘Stranger Things’ EPs on Season 2: ‘We Could Explore It If Netflix Wanted To’

16 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos may have declined to announce a renewal for the buzzy series “Stranger Things” — “We want to let it breathe a little bit,” he said — but he couldn’t dampen the enthusiasm for the show at the annual Television Critics Association press tour in Beverly Hills.

Series creators Matt and Ross Duffer, along with stars Winona Ryder, Millie Bobby Brown, Gaten Matarazzo, and Caleb McLaughlin were on hand to discuss the breakout hit’s success as well as plans for any future seasons.

The series’ first season does answer most of the questions raised, said Matt. “We want it to feel like a big movie,” he said. “But there’s a bigger mythology, and there’s a lot of dangling threads at the end. We could explore it if Netflix wanted to continue.”

Added Ross, “It’s about giving enough so the audience feels satisfied.”

‘Stranger Things’: Watch a Video of Netflix’s Throwback Series Side by Side With Its Retro Influences

21 hours ago | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

If you’ve watched “Stranger Things,” you’ll surely have noticed by now that Netflix’s latest binge-worthy show is replete with references to ’80s movies. (And if you haven’t watched “Stranger Things,” why haven’t you watched “Stranger Things”?) Courtesy of an intrepid Vimeo user, one Ulysse Thevenon, you can now see excerpts of the Duffer Brothers’ throwback series side by side with the movies that have most visibly influenced it, a few of which are from the ’70s.

Set to the show’s instant-classic theme song — itself a bit of John Carpenter worship — the nearly five-minute video is unsurprisingly heavy in Steven Spielberg clips. “E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial” and “Close Encounters of the Third Kind” abound in the video, which features no diegetic sound from either “Stranger Things” or the rest of its influences, »

'Stranger Things' creators explain it all about season 1

27 July 2016 4:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

I really enjoyed Netflix's Stranger Things, an unapologetic tribute to the works of Steven Spielberg, Stephen King, John Carpenter, and other masters of suspense and horror that creators Matt and Ross Duffer grew up loving. (Here's my initial review, and here are some spoiler-heavy thoughts on the season.) Yesterday, I spoke with the Duffer brothers about how they drew the line between homage and straight-up thievery, why the season was only 8 episodes (a length I think more Netflix dramas should try), why actor Gaten Matarazzo deserves so much credit for making Dustin the show's most entertaining character, what a potential second season would be like, and more. That's all coming up just as soon as you give me this phone, two weeks advance, and a pack of Camels... Where did you draw the line between paying homage to all those great movies and books of the period and trying to tell your own story? »

Five Reasons ‘Stranger Things’ Worked, and One Big Question

26 July 2016 4:43 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Stranger Things” has pulled off an increasingly rare feat. In an age in which TV is saturated with what often feels like too much TV, it’s become a true word-of-mouth hit.

Of course, “hit” might not be the right word: Netflix, of course, does not release viewership figures. But there’s no denying that “Stranger Things,” which had a relatively low profile at its release, has gotten a lot of buzz. Positive reviews probably helped, but anecdotally speaking, people are doing a very old-fashioned thing: They’re telling their friends that this spooky drama is something special. It’s been fun to watch the show’s fanbase grow, quietly but relentlessly.

So I’d like to revise my review a little. When I first wrote about “Stranger Things,” I’d only seen four episodes, and now that I’ve seen all eight, my assessment is even more positive. There’s a decent chance it could end »

Evolution of Winona Ryder, From ‘Beetlejuice’ to ‘Stranger Things’ (Photos)

26 July 2016 3:43 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Over the last 30 years, Winona Ryder has played everything from a disillusioned high schooler to a stressed-out mom. Check out how she’s evolved onscreen. “Lucas” (1986) Ryder was just 14 when she made her screen debut in this coming-of-age story, playing the best friend to a lonely high-school nerd. “Beetlejuice” (1988) Ryder’s big breakthrough came in Tim Burton‘s comic horror fantasy, playing goth teenager Lydia, whose parents are haunted by an irritating spirit played by Michael Keaton. “Heathers” (1989) One of the biggest cult films of the ’80s, with Ryder playing an intelligent high schooler battling conformity and shallowness among her peers. »

26 July 2016 2:10 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Winona Ryder gets candid in a new featurette for her Netflix series “Stranger Things.”

The actress discusses jumping into her first major TV role in the video, released on Tuesday by the streaming giant. Ryder plays Joyce Byers, a single mother trying to find her son after his mysterious disappearance, in the supernatural thriller.

“I know a lot of women like that, who are good people but they struggle,” Ryder said of her character.

After experiencing supernatural occurrences in her home, like glowing Christmas lights, and her unwavering conviction that her son is alive, everyone starts to think “she’s out of her mind, but she’s actually kind of onto something,” Ryder said.

“I like that there are sort of different story lines. You really don’t know what is around the corner or what is going to happen,” added Ryder. “It’s like putting the pieces of a puzzle together and it’s fun to »

Netflix’s new original series sci-fi horror series “Stranger Things,” about the disappearance of a young boy and the arrival of a telekinetic girl in a small town in 1980’s Indiana, has garnered critical acclaim for its performances and the numerous homages to 1980’s cinema.

How ‘BoJack Horseman’ Achieved Perfection Without a Word

26 July 2016 9:46 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

[Editor’s Note: “BoJack Horseman” Season 3 is a feat of storytelling on both a serialized and episodic level. To honor the impressive accomplishment, IndieWire will be reviewing all 12 episodes over the next few weeks. Below, we delve into Episode 4.]

“You’ll find me in a sea of dreams where no one cares about my words.”

That Raphael Bob-Waksberg would make a largely silent episode of “BoJack Horseman” is as surprising as it is fitting, but the diegetic reason the episode features little dialogue (and none underwater) takes a well-executed punchline and turns it into transcendent TV. Revealed in the final seconds of “A Fish Out of Water,” we learn BoJack could have been speaking the entire time had he not been ignorant of how to use his underwater oxygen bubble. When he finally pushes his communication button and realizes the gaffe, BoJack lets out a frustrated “Oh, you have got to be kidd–” that’s cut off by the credits. While funny as a kicker to an episode building to a crescendo of mistakes, the choice also speaks to our antihero’s larger mental state and why he so »

Doc Corner: 'Women He's Undressed' Reveals Hollywood Couture

26 July 2016 8:30 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Glenn here. Each Tuesday we bring you reviews and features on documentaries from theatres, festivals, and on demand.

Gillian Armstrong is nearly as prolific as a documentarian as she is a dramatic filmmaker. While the likes of her “Seven Years On” series (an Australian 7 Up), her Bob Dylan concert doc Hard to Handle, or the true crime murder mystery of an interior design queen in Unfolding Florence aren’t as well-known as her collaborations with Judy Davis, Cate Blanchett, Mel Gibson, and Winona Ryder, they are eclectic and passionate works nonetheless. As she said in her interview with Jose last year at Toronto, “there’s a different art to making documentaries” and unlike many other directors who split their time between mediums, her documentaries do feel distinctly unique from her other work and yet equally essential.

Her latest non-fiction work is Women He’s Undressed, a peek behind the velvet curtain at Orry-Kelly, »

’Stranger Things’ Season 2: 9 Questions We’re Dying To Have Answered

25 July 2016 12:15 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

One of the joys of Netflix’s original series “Stranger Things” is the season’s sense of finality. The Duffer brothers excelled at crescendoing the season with action, emotion and heft, yet they left what they’ve referred to as “dangling threads” around the conclusions of Will Byers and Eleven, and we wanted to get in on speculating what Season 2 may answer and where the show could venture to. If you’ve finished the season, read on to find out what we’re asking about Season 2. If you haven’t checked out Season 1 yet, Do That and stop reading here!
