Shannen Doherty (and That Red Scrunchie) Return in the Heathers Reboot Trailer

I hope you have some scrunchies and a plaid skirt suit handy, because a new look at the Heathers reboot is finally here. After a 30-second teaser aired during the VMAs in August, Paramount has just shared a full-length trailer. It's clear that the 1988 cult classic has gotten a modern makeover. Replacing Winona Ryder and Christian Slater as Veronica and J.D. are Under the Dome actress Grace Victoria Cox and Quantico's James Scully, who have to face off against a pink fur coat-wearing, pixie cut-sporting, body positive Heather, played by newcomer Melanie Field. Rounding out the infamous clique is Brendan Scannell, whose Heather is genderqueer, and Jasmine Mathews's Heather, a black lesbian. Shannen Doherty will also be reprising her role as Heather Duke in the reboot, which we get a very short glimpse of in the latest trailer (she's got the infamous scrunchie And a gun). The pilot

Trailer Watch: Meet the New Class of Acid-Tongued Teens in “Heathers” TV Reboot


Heathers” is back and nastier than ever. A red-band trailer has dropped for Paramount Network’s reboot of the beloved 1988 dark comedy, and the mean clique at the center of the story looks decidedly different than the original Heathers, all of whom were cis-gender, thin white girls. “Fat kids can be popular,” and Asians too, we’re told in the spot. “Gays and Jews are over,” but genderqueer is in. Not everything has changed: lunch-time polls are still a thing, and Veronica’s diary remains a vital part of the story.

“I wish Heather Chandler (Melanie Field) would just die so that I can finally be free,” says Veronica (Grace Victoria Cox). As is the case in the film, the show sees Veronica plotting the murder of her frenemy alongside her new boyfriend, J.D. (James Scully), who is described as a “domestic terrorist” and “teenage Charles Manson.”

SAG Awards predictions head-scratcher: Can ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ win drama without having the biggest cast?

SAG Awards predictions head-scratcher: Can ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ win drama without having the biggest cast?
When it comes to the SAG Awards, size often matters. The most massive casts often run off with the ensemble prizes, which explains how “Lost” found victory at the 2005 ceremony, and how “Downton Abbey” (2012) was able to take down two-time champ “Boardwalk Empire” (2010-2011). This year, however, Gold Derby’s SAG TV predictions favor Hulu’s “The Handmaid’s Tale” to prevail despite having the second-smallest cast. Are we crazy for going against bigger ensembles?

“The Handmaid’s Tale” boasts 10 cast members on the voting ballot, ahead of only Netflix’s “The Crown” at five. Comparatively, the other nominated dramas each feature more than a dozen actors: HBO’s “Game of Thrones” at 30, Netflix’s “Stranger Things” at 17 and NBC’s “This Is Us” at 13. In recent years “Game of Thrones” and “Downton Abbey” always had the biggest casts, with “Downton” beating the HBO fantasy series in 2014 and 2015.

Red-Band Trailer For The Wild-Looking Series Reboot of Heathers Features First Look at Shannen Doherty

Paramount has released the first full red-band trailer for their upcoming series reboot of the classic 1988 film Heathers. This is said to be a "pitch-black comedy anthology set in the present day." It's definitely not the version of the film that you remember. This is a complete reimagining but it deals with the same issues, and it looks pretty wild.

The original film focused on Veronica (Winona Ryder) and her rebel boyfriend J.D. (Christian Slater), dealing with the social order in high school. The update features a new set of popular-yet-evil Heathers. Only this time around the outcasts have become the high school royalty. This definitely makes for an interesting twist. 

Heather McNamara (originally played by Lisanne Falk) will be portrayed by Jasmine Mathews; Heather Duke (Shannen Doherty in the film) is a male who identifies as gender-queer whose real name is Heath (Brendan Scannell); and Heather Chandler (originally

‘Heathers’ TV Show Trailer: Teenage Angst Still Has a Body Count
These aren’t the Heathers you remember. In the 1988 cult classic, the original Heathers, played with icy conviction by Kim Walker, Shannon Doherty, and Lisanne Falk, were willowy, beautiful mean girls who terrorized their fellow high school students — until Winona Ryder and Christian Slater’s rebellious outsiders took fatal action against them. Heathers was a heightened, sadistic satire of the […]

Will the youth of today that are the target audience for “Heathers” be acquainted with the original cult teen movie that’s three decades old, that inspired it all? Unlikely. Does it matter? Nope.

‘Heathers’ Series Creator Promises ‘Major’ Changes to Cult Classic, Teases Shannen Doherty Cameo

‘Heathers’ Series Creator Promises ‘Major’ Changes to Cult Classic, Teases Shannen Doherty Cameo
Paramount Network’s “Heathers” is technically an adaptation of the 1988 cult comedy starring Winona Ryder and Christian Slater, but series creator Jason Micallef said the show will still find ways to put a new spin on the story. “It’s 2018, it’s not 1988,” Micallef told reporters at the Television Critics Association press tour on Monday. “No one’s going to want to watch a girl for 10 episodes follow a guy around, murder people and then whine about it.” So Micallef said he created some “very, very major character changes” for the lead character Veronica Sawyer, played by Ryder in the original movie...

David Harbour on ‘Stranger Things 2’, ‘Hellboy’, and Rebooting Indiana Jones

There are so many reasons to love Stranger Things, from the storytelling to the cast to the wonderful nostalgia of it all. It’s introduced us all to a fabulous young cast, made us wish we had a friend like Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown), gave us the opportunity to fall in love with Winona Ryder again, and turned David Harbour (who plays Chief Jim Hopper) into a leading man. With all of its critical acclaim and award recognition, it’s a fun show to talk about and write about, so when Collider recently got the opportunity to hop onto the …

Q&A: Peyton Wich on Playing Troy in Stranger Things & Working with Brendan Gleeson on Mr. Mercedes

  • DailyDead
Before Billy came to Hawkins, Troy was perhaps the most feared school bully on Stranger Things. Brought to life by actor Peyton Wich, Troy took part in two of the most memorable scenes from the first season of the Netflix series, including the now-iconic quarry showdown with Eleven. Daily Dead recently had the pleasure of catching up with Wich for our latest Q&A feature, in which he discusses his audition process for Stranger Things, memorable moments acting alongside David Harbour and the young actors in the first season, and working with Brendan Gleeson on the Stephen King adaptation Mr. Mercedes.

Thanks for taking the time to answer some questions for us, Peyton. How did you originally become interested in acting?

Peyton Wich: I participated in a variety of activities when I was younger, but I always quit. Nothing ever interested me. I would watch a lot of movies in

Winona Ryder on L'Oréal Ads: I First Used L'Oréal's Blue-Black At-Home Hair Color When I Was 12
You may have caught Winona Ryder’s new ad for L’Oréal Paris’s Elvive collection during the Golden Globe Awards Sunday night. Her cinematic spot for “The Comeback” campaign, which introduces a line of products designed for women with damaged hair, garnered a ton of buzz. Ryder doesn’t often lend her face to campaigns like this (she was previously the face of Marc Jacobs Beauty) but the Stranger Things star says her long relationship with L’Oréal made the partnership a no-brainer.

Golden Globes 2018: Meyers, #MeToo and How Oprah Saved the World

The Golden Globes get woke? Most years the Hollywood Foreign Press Association's ceremony barely looks semi-conscious. That's the whole point of this tipsiest and dippiest of award shows, where a herd of wobbly celebrities squeeze themselves into the Beverly Hilton for a night of free booze and camera time. But the 2018 Golden Globe Awards tried to get serious, with stars wearing black on the red carpet, host Seth Meyers cracking jokes about Hollywood sexual predators and a triumphant speech from Oprah Winfrey. The results might have been spectacularly awkward

Seth Meyers takes aim at Spacey and Weinstein in fiery monologue

That marks the end of the beginning of this year’s awards season. It’s been a fascinating night if, like me, you end up watching a lot of these things and get a bit fatigued by the repetitious nature of it all.

The decision to bring the elephant in the room (sexual abuse in Hollywood) front and center made for an often compelling ceremony and an entirely, radically different red carpet. Who would have guessed a year ago that tonight would have played out with such fire?

Golden Globes 2018: Best, Worst and Weirdest Moments

The Globes are going to Globe.

Still, this year's Golden Globes was one of its better telecasts, wasn't it? There were some lows (like the fact that Get Out went home completely empty-handed) but certainly many more highs, from all of the powerful speeches delivered by women to some truly deserving wins (hoorah for Mrs. Maisel and Lady Bird and Big Little Lies, even though it was nominated in the wrong category!) to Oprah. Grab a bottle of champagne, take a swig and let's relive the best, worst and weirdest moments from tonight's show.

The Best

The Focus on Time's Up: From the all-black dress code in protest of sexual harassment -- which nearly everyone in attendance followed -- to the widespread exaltation of the Time's Up initiative to each of the actresses who walked the red carpet with an activist as their date, this year's Globes was about so much more than handing out trophies.

Golden Globes: Best and Worst Moments of the 2018 Ceremony (Photos)
Best: Seth Meyers’ opening monologue. While Meyers could have been expected to address the sexual-misconduct scandal and subsequent backlash during the opener to this year’s ceremony, Meyers was especially cutting with his zingers, welcoming the audience with, “Good evening, ladies and remaining gentlemen” and declaring, “Time to address the elephant not in the room: Harvey Weinstein isn’t in the room … he’ll be back in 20 years when he’s the first person booed in the in memoriam.” Worst: Winona Ryder’s head-scratching L’Oreal commercial. While not officially part of the ceremony, Ryder’s ad — which started out as empowering before morphing.
