Some Stranger Things season 2 material being held back for season 3

17 May 2017 4:28 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With Stranger Things set to return to Netflix for its second season this October, executive producer and director Shawn Levy has been chatting to Collider about the acclaimed supernatural drama series, revealing that creators The Duffer Brothers have had so many ideas for the story that some material is being held back for season three.

“As the episodes were written by the Duffers, they realised that there was too much story for nine episodes,” said Levy. “So it forced us to be judicious in which stories we tell this season. So one of the surprises was, not all of our grand ideas are going to be serviced in one season… If we had 40 ideas going into the season, 30 [we] are going to pick, and the rest go in the back of our head for, hopefully, future chapters.”

Contra: Konami's arcade classic is getting a film adaptation in China

10 May 2017 1:03 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ryan Lambie May 10, 2017

Classic run-and-gun arcade game Contra is to become a film courtesy of China's Beijing Starlit Movie company...

Released in 1987, Contra was an arcade game for an age of pumped-up, Reagan-era action films. About a pair of muscle-bound heroes, Lance and Bill, and their fight against enemy forces on a tropical archipelago, the run-and-gunner launched a series that, to date, contains 11 sequels and spin-offs.

Thirty years after its initial release, Konami's classic is set to stage a come-back from an unexpected angle: a Chinese production company has announced that it's making a movie adaptation. Aside from a slight change in location, the plot sounds broadly the same as the original game's back-story. Here's the official synopsis:

"In 1988, a huge meteorite lands on an uninhabited island in the South China Sea. Chen Qiang and Li Zhiyong investigate but come up empty handed. 29 years later, Chen sends commandos Bill and »

Will Chase Trades Nashville For Hawkins To Join Stranger Things

4 May 2017 7:55 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

When Stranger Things landed on Netflix on July 15th, 2016, it took viewers by surprise. Arriving with very little fanfare, its odd combination of pop culture homage, retro aesthetic, and era-specific detail quickly captivated fans, and delivered an extraordinary experience in fantasy-horror storytelling. With just eight episodes, series creators Matt and Ross Duffer built a community within the town of Hawkins, Indiana, and layered it with terrifying darkness. This is the situation that will meet actor Will Chase (Nashville), who has now joined the cast for the second season.

Chase will play new Hawkins resident Neil Mayfield, who has moved to the stricken town with his two children, played by Sadie Sink (American Odyssey) and Dacre Montgomery (Power Rangers). Little is known of their story, beyond the fact that the younger Mayfields will be students at the local school, alongside the children from the first season – played by Finn Wolfhard, Millie Bobby Brown, »

Season 2 of Stranger Things will be “more horror oriented”, says series stars

3 May 2017 11:42 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Stranger Things was a breakout hit for Netflix last summer, proving that the streaming service is the go-to place for experimental television. The show already has a huge cult-following, and a second season was green-lit before the first season even premiered. So, what will a second season of Stranger Things be like? According series stars Galen Matarazzo (Dustin), and Finn Wolfhard (Mike) the second season is going to top the first, and will be much scarier:

“The great thing about this season is you get to see insights into each character on their own,” said Matarazzo. “You’re going to see a lot more into the lives of how the characters are coping with what’s been going on… I think they’re all very emotionally scarred. They feel alone because their best friend [Will] is back and he’s not acting like their best friend anymore. He’s changed.”

2 May 2017 6:25 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Scott Davis

In amongst all of the amazing shows coming in 2017, both on network/terrestrial channels and on subscription services, nothing has got us here at HeyUGuys HQ as excited as the return of our favourite show: Stranger Things. As lovers of all things 80s, we immediately fell in love with the series and cannot wait until Halloween when the show returns for its hugely anticipated sophomore series.

We have only seen small glimpses of what is to come, in pictures and in the show’s teaser trailer, but some new info on the show has been revealed in the last few days with the cast speaking to People about what can be expected from the show. While we won’t spoil anything here about the first season, there are many unanswered questions that we hope to get answered and the young members of the cast – Millie Bobby Brown »

How ‘There’s… Johnny’ Series’ Cast and Creators Treated Johnny Carson’s Legacy With Reverence

28 April 2017 10:08 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Tribeca audiences were transported back to the 1970s on Thursday night when Seeso’s “There’s… Johnny!” had its premiere screening.

Audiences got to see episodes one and four of the series about Andy, a young man from Nebraska, and Joy, a talent coordinator on the show, as

they work behind the scenes on “The Tonight Show With Johnny Carson.”

After the screening, stars Tony Danza, Ian Nelson and Jane Levy, creators Paul Reiser and David Steven Simon, and executive producer David Gordon Green spoke about bringing the seven episode series to life 17 years after it was conjured up by Reiser and Simon. The show, which is set in Los Angeles in 1972 and 1973, will premiere later this year.

Here are nine things we learned from the conversation about the series that, according to Simon, is not “That ’70s Show” with wacky Johnny

Alison Brie, Aubrey Plaza, Kate Micucci in First 'The Little Hours' Trailer

18 April 2017 4:03 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"The girls can be tough. I'm not going to lie, they can be very tough." Gunpowder & Sky has revealed the first red band trailer for a wacky comedy titled The Little Hours, which first premiered at the Sundance Film Festival this year. Alison Brie, Aubrey Plaza and Kate Micucci star as three dirty, horny nuns in this comedy. Everything seems fine at their convent until Father Tommasso brings on new hired hand, a virile young servant forced into hiding by his angry lord. John C. Reilly and Dave Franco also star, along with Nick Offerman, Fred Armisen, Molly Shannon, Jemima Kirke, Paul Reiser, Adam Pally. This looks totally nuts. And I love that quote from Catholic League in the trailer: "It is trash. Pure trash." Here's the first red band trailer (+ teaser poster) for Jeff Baena's The Little Hours, direct from YouTube: Medieval nuns Alessandra (Alison Brie), Fernanda (Aubrey Plaza »

Little Hours Red Band Trailer Has Nuns Behaving Very Badly

18 April 2017 2:40 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

New distribution company Gunpowder & Sky has released the first trailer for their outrageous comedy The Little Hours, which was acquired shortly after the R-rated comedy's premiere at the Sundance Film Festival in January. Aubrey Plaza, Alison Brie and Kate Micucci lead a cast chocked full of comedy all-stars, starring as a group of nuns who aren't exactly pleased with their life in the convent. This indie comedy could very well be one of this summer's sleeper hits when it debuts in theaters this coming June.

Medieval nuns Alessandra (Alison Brie), Fernanda (Aubrey Plaza), and Ginevra (Kate Micucci) lead a simple life in their convent. Their days are spent chafing at monastic routine, spying on one another, and berating the estate's day laborer. After a particularly vicious insult session drives the peasant away, Father Tommasso (John C. Reilly) brings on new hired hand Massetto (Dave Franco), a virile young servant forced »

Film Review: Adam Sandler’s ‘Sandy Wexler’

15 April 2017 12:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Depending on whether you love or hate Adam Sandler movies, you can hold old-school talent manager Sandy Wernick at least partly accountable for having encouraged his career. Wernick signed Sandler at age 22, three years before “Saturday Night Live” snatched up the young comedian and made him a star, and Sandler has remained loyal ever since — so much so that he’s built his latest sketch-stretched-far-past-the-breaking-point, “Sandy Wexler,” as an in-joke homage to his longtime manager.

Sandler repays those years of service not with a big sloppy kiss of a movie, but rather a feature-length roast (though the word “sloppy” still applies) — one that amplifies the man’s nasal voice and off-putting fake laugh into an elaborate caricature of a hopelessly pathetic bottom-feeder. The roast approach isn’t a bad way to go per se, except that somewhere along the way, this project’s too-many-cooks left out the most important ingredient: »
