Netflix Announces Cast For Supernatural Series ‘Stranger Things’

20 August 2015 2:08 PM, PDT | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

Netflix continues to up its ambitions in the original programming world. The streaming video platform has announced the title and cast for Stranger Things, a supernatural series set to premiere in 2016.

Stranger Things, which comes from creators Matt and Ross Duffer, was first announced in April, but not under same title; instead, it was known as Montauk. Winona Ryder joined the project in June, when it was still untitled, and now, as it has received its new name, the rest of its cast has been revealed. Young actor Finn Wolfhard will co-star as the friend of a missing boy, and Millie Brown will portray a mysterious girl with supernatural abilities. The show’s plot description, which teases “top secret experiments, terrifying supernatural forces, and one very strange little girl,” has a definite Twin Peaks vibe to it, though a press release bills the show as “a love letter to the »

Why Beetlejuice 2 has much to live up to

18 August 2015 1:17 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Plans are afoot for a sequel to Tim Burton's Beetlejuice. But what made the original so special, and where might the sequel go?

Last week, an extremely cautious Winona Ryder confirmed on Late Night With Seth Myers that a sequel to Tim Burton's beloved 1988 haunted house comedy Beetlejuice was finally in the works. Ryder will be reprising her role as Lydia Deetz, with Burton back behind the megaphone and Michael Keaton, fresh from a career-resurrecting turn in Birdman (2014), again starring as 'the ghost with the most'.

Ryder's announcement was met with the inevitable woops and cheers from Myers' studio audience, but fans of Burton's breakthrough feature will be seeking reassurances that the forthcoming follow-up will remain true to the spirit of its predecessor.

For those who've never seen it, Beetlejuice tells the story of Adam and Barbara Maitland (Alec Baldwin and Geena Davis), a happily married couple living »

The Week in Movies discusses the last seven days in cinema – mainly the continuing failiure of Fantastic Four, a bunch of Star Wars Universe news, the plot of Toy Story 4 and the latest casting in the Baywatch movie…

The below is excerpt from the weekly Flickering Myth Super Newsletter. Subscribe here to get it delivered to your inbox every Sunday (a whole day ahead of everyone else!), along with a digest of the week’s best trailers, articles, exclusive competitions and online streaming picks.

The quality of Fantastic Four 2015 and Uggie’s death were in no way related.

TooFab or TooDrab?! See This Week's Best and Worst Dressed Stars

14 August 2015 4:30 PM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

The good, the bad and Christina Milian's sinful Sin City style! The "Dip It Low" singer put all of her curves on display this week during a pool party at the Flamingo in Las Vegas, sporting tiny denim shorts, blue heels and a pleather crop top with fringed sleeves.  While everyone would agree that the pop star's body is smokin' hot, this over-the-top outfit definitely missed the mark. Fellow celeb mom Kim Kardashian finally nailed her maternity style on Monday in a gray Wolford dress and a classic Isabel Marant trench coat. She elegantly paired her figure-hugging look with braided Jimmy Choo heels, loose waves, and, of course, her growing baby bump. This outfit was a major improvement from the uncomfortably tight ensembles she sported during her first pregnancy! Ciara got some mixed reviews from our style squad when she stepped out in a striped Givenchy midi dress with ruffles along the torso. »

Before he ever gets there, though, Wasicsko has to get through to the grocery shoppers who don't seem to want to give him the time of day, let alone read through the informational pamphlets about his campaign. He puts in a good effort. The adaptation of Lisa Belkin's 1999 non-fiction book of the same name also stars Catherine Keener, Alfred Molina and Winona Ryder, and is set to explore issues of race and community through the lives of bureaucrats, activists and citizens of Yonkers, »

Review: Oscar Isaac shines in David Simon's 'Show Me a Hero'

13 August 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

David Simon is the resident civics professor of American cable drama, with projects like "The Wire," "The Corner," "Generation Kill," and "Tremé" offering thoughtful takes on the drug war, the Iraq invasion, New Orleans post-Katrina, and the generally rotten state of urban America. He is a TV producer by trade, consciousness-raiser by passion, and journalist at his core, and the showmanship side of the job has always come across as a necessary evil for him. He's glad that "Wire" fans came to love Omar and Bubbles and Wallace, but if they didn't grasp the larger lesson he was trying to teach, then what was the point? But he's also understood that his work needs a spoonful of Stringer to make the medicine go down. "The Wire" may be a powerful commentary on policing, politics, and so much more, but it's also a cracking piece of entertainment, as are all of »

12 August 2015 2:17 AM, PDT | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

Winona Ryder is to star in 'Beetlejuice 2'. The 43-year-old actress has revealed she's been cast alongside Michael Keaton and Tim Burton in the much-discussed sequel to 1988 original, which also starred Alec Baldwin. Asked whether there was any truth to the 'Beetjuice' speculation, Winona said: ''Um, I think I can confirm it, because Tim Burton did this interview - like, it was very hush hush, top secret ... and then he was doing some press for 'Big Eyes' and he did an on-camera interview and he said, 'Oh yeah we're doing it and Winona's going to be in it,' and I was like [shocked face].'' Last year, Tim Burton admitted a 'Beetlejuice' sequel was possible, but only if Michael Keaton could be tempted back to play the starring role. He said: ''There's only one Beetlejuice, and that's Michael. There is a script, and I would »

Winona Ryder is set to rejoin Michael Keaton for Tim Burton's Beetlejuice 2...

Just because we've not heard anything on the project for a little while, it doesn't mean there hasn't been progress. Plans remain afoot for Beetlejuice 2, which Tim Burton may well be getting to after he's finished directing his current project, Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children.

Michael Keaton is set to reprise the title role for the new movie, which is being penned by Seth Grahame-Smith and David Katzenberg. And now Winona Ryder too has confirmed she's set to return for the movie.
