Stranger Things Season 2 Comic-Con Trailer Welcomes You Back To Hawkins

22 July 2017 4:14 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Some doors can’t be closed, it seems.

During their appearance at San Diego Comic-Con this weekend, Netflix went ahead and rolled out the official trailer for Stranger Things season 2, which will be with us on October 27th.

Comprised of nine episodes in total – up one from the original run of eight – series creators Matt and Ross Duffer, along with producer Shawn Levy, have consistently promised a darker, more intense thrill ride for the folks of Hawkins, Indiana, and it all stems from that otherworldly realm known to you, I, and poor old Will Byers as the Upside Down.

Noah Schnapp’s haunted, soft-spoken character is said to be the focal point of Stranger Things‘ sophomore run, and after coughing up a slug at the tail-end of season 1, fans have stipulated that Will Byers will become a walking, talking conduit of the Upside Down. And that can only portend all »

The cast and creators of “Stranger Things” arrived in Hall H, the biggest Comic-Con venue of all, on Saturday, and cracked up the assembled crowd for most of the hourlong panel. They also unveiled a new trailer. 

Executive producers Shawn Levy, Matt Duffer, and Ross Duffer, as well as cast members Millie Bobby Brown, Gaten Matarazzo, Finn Wolfhard, Caleb McLaughlin, David Harbour, Joe Keery, Charlie Heaton, Natalia Dyer, Sadie Sink, Sean Astin, Paul Reiser, and Dacre Montgomery were all on hand.

The new trailer is scored to Michael Jackson’s “Thriller,” using the creepy narration of Vincent Price. It starts out with the kids at a video arcade, playing Dragon’s Lair. Will sees a vision of the Upside Down outside the arcade, complete with a red, stormy, supernatural sky. Later, he says, “I saw something. I felt it everywhere.”

Oxygen To Promote New True Crime Series By Letting Reddit Users Question Famous Jurors

21 July 2017 2:21 PM, PDT | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

NBCUniversal's Oxygen recently rebranded to focus on true crime content, and one of its new shows in that genre is The Jury Speaks, which features perspectives from people who served on the juries of famous court cases. To promote that show, Oxygen is running a clever promotion online: It will bring some of its featured jurors to Reddit, where they will field questions posed by the website's Iama community.

The people Oxygen will bring to Reddit include jurors from the Robert Durst, George Zimmerman, and Michael Jackson cases. Christopher Darden (pictured above), who famously served as a member of the prosecution during O.J. Simpson's murder trial, will show up for a question-and-answer session as well.

‘People v Oj Simpson’ Writers Explain 5 Things They Made Up

19 July 2017 12:49 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

“The People v Oj Simpson” masterminds Larry Karaszewski and Scott Alexander did a remarkable job of telling an accurate story. But they had to take a few dramatic liberites, and talked to TheWrap about what they were. For example: That joke from Johnnie Cochran (Courtney B. Vance) about Michael Jackson being afraid of lime green. “I think we made it up because we thought it was funny,” Karaszewski told TheWrap. “We needed a shorthand to say even before the Oj trial, Johnnie had his hands full.” Also Read: What 'The People v Oj Simpson' Got Wrong (Photos) Added Alexander: “Larry, »

19 July 2017 10:25 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The author who predicted in Dec. 2008 that Michael Jackson had six months to live (the singer died in June 2009) is now taking aim at Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters.

Ian Halperin, whose book credits include “Unmasked: The Final Years of Michael Jackson” (2009), “Whitney and Bobbi Kristina” (2015) and “The Governator: From Muscle Beach to His Quest For the White House, the Improbable Rise of Arnold Schwarzenegger” (2010), has written and directed a documentary titled “Wish You Weren’t Here,” which probes Waters’ call for a boycott of Israel and controversial statements he has made, including a comparison of the country’s policies to “Nazi Germany.”
