A Group of Teenagers in The 80s Take on a Serial Killer in The Trailer For Summer Of '84

"There's a serial killer on the loose! What else could possibly be this exciting!"

Summer of '84 is one of the films that I'm really excited about seeing at the Sundance Film Festival later this month. I was already sold on the premise, but today we have an awesome trailer to share with you and if you're a fan of the 80s and this radcore movement that Hollywood has found itself in, this is a film project that will definitely perk your interest.

The movie comes from the same filmmaking team that brought us the radical cult film Turbo Kid. As you'll see, Summer of '84 has a very similar vibe as Stranger Things, but instead of taking on a monster from another dimension, a group of geeky teenagers get excited about taking on a real-life monster... a serial killer that is terrorizing their suburban community. If The Goonies were

Teaser Trailer for Funky Sundance Midnight Thriller 'Summer of '84'

"There's a serial killer on the loose... What else could possibly be this exciting?!" Gunpowder & Sky has put out the first teaser trailer for filmmaking collective Rkss' new film Summer of '84, which is premiering at the Sundance Film Festival this month. This film comes with quite a similar pitch to many other projects these days: it "delivers the camaraderie, adventure, joy and nostalgia of The Goonies and Stand By Me while four boys chase to uncover a mystery (ala 'Stranger Things')." The main cast is lead by a group of four young kids, and the film stars Graham Verchere, Judah Lewis, Caleb Emery, Cory Gruter-Andrew, Tiera Skovbye, Rich Sommer, Jason Gray-Stanford, and Shauna Johannesen. This really does look like Stand By Me meets "Stranger Things", but hopefully it has something to unique offer on its own. Have fun. Here's the first teaser trailer (+ teaser poster) for Rkss'

Corey Feldman Made a ''Promise'' to Corey Haim to Expose Alleged Sexual Abuse
Corey Feldman says he won't rest until his "promise" to Corey Haim is fulfilled. E! News' Melanie Bromley sat down with the 46-year-old Goonies star for a revealing interview about his ongoing crusade to expose alleged sexual abuse in Hollywood. Before Haim's death in 2010, Feldman claims his close friend asked him to shed light on the abuse he says they endured while working as child actors. In Feldman's words, "Corey asked me to make sure that if he died before me that his story was told. I am doing exactly that… The only thing left is he wants people to know who the assailant was, and I hope to God that one day that story can be told,...

Watch Stranger Things Season 2… in Lego!

Continuing the trend of morphing the biggest film and television shows into Danish bricks, Stranger Things season 2 is the latest to receive the Lego treatment.

Brought to you by the cutely named Netbrix, the video, made by bookshelfproductions, condenses the second season of the smash hit retro horror into key sequences from the show; Hopper dancing in the hideout, Steve’s Farah Fawcett spray life-lessons, and even manages to improve on the seventh episode by making it last just a few seconds.

It’s 1984 and the citizens of Hawkins, Indiana are still reeling from the horrors of the demogorgon and the secrets of Hawkins Lab. Will Byers has been rescued from the Upside Down but a bigger, sinister entity still threatens those who survived.

The second season of Stranger Things sees the return of cast members Winona Ryder, David Harbour, Millie Bobby Brown, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, Finn Wolfhard, Noah Schnapp,

David Harbour is hard at work on his “dad bod” for Stranger Things Season 3

If any of you became worried when David Harbour was cast as Hellboy that he would get too buff for Stranger Things, prepare to be relieved. Speaking to Variety, the actor confirms that, since Hellboy has wrapped production, that he is actively working on his “dad bod” for the eventual third season of Stranger Things:

“I’ve already started the donut training. Six donuts a day! We’ll get there, folks…”

The actor also reflected on what it’s been like to suddenly become a sex-symbol this late in his career thanks to his portrayal as Sheriff Jim Hopper on Stranger Things:

“The fact that I got famous and become a sex symbol around my normal frumpy love-handled self is so gratifying. And dare I say culturally gratifying as well. What makes someone sexy in my mind is who they are. It’s not necessarily how they look.

David Harbour wants a Stranger Things season 3 team-up between Hopper and Steve

Stranger Things star David Harbour wants a team-up in season 3 between his character Hopper and Steve.

Harbour has recently been nominated for a Golden Globe for his performance as the local police chief, Hopper, in season two of the hit Netflix show. Now Harbour has been speaking to Variety about what he wants from the third season.

One request of Harbour’s is that his character gets to team-up with Joe Keery’s Steve, as well as spend time with Gaten Matarazzo’s Dustin, and to explore more of Harbour’s backstory.

“…I do think the internet knows my love for Joe Keery. I would love to see a Hopper and Steve get-together, but I seriously doubt that’s going to happen. I’d love to work with Gaten. I want to get into the backstory of Hopper more. When Eleven goes into the basement, she sees a bunch of boxes,

Stranger Thing star Joe Keery will shave his head if David Harbour wins a Golden Globe

Joe Keery, one of the stars of Stranger Things, has said that he will shave his head if co-star David Harbour wins a Golden Globe.

Stranger Things is of course a huge hit for Netflix, and Keery, whose character Steve started out as a quasi-antagonist, has quickly become a fan favourite, thanks to his charm, humour, and impressive 80s hair.

One of his co-stars on the show, David Harbour, has recently received a Golden Globe nomination for the role of Jim Hopper. Apparently finding this quite unbelievable, Keery commented on one of Harbour’s Instagram posts about the nomination, saying, “If you win David the Duffer’s get to shave my head.”

This would of course be a big deal for the fan base and one audience member commented on the same post in response to Keery, saying: “If you let them do this you will break the hearts of so many fans.

The Library of Congress has announced the 25 movies being added to the National Film Registry for 2017. The list this year is all over the place, which includes movies dating back to the early 1900s and modern classics. Movies like Die Hard, The Goonies, Titanic and Superman have all been selected this year and are considered worthy of preserving under the National Film Preservation Act. Yes, John McClane taking out terrorists at Nakatomi Plaza is worthy of being preserved by the government now.

Under the National Film Preservation Act, the Librarian of Congress names 25 movies to the National Film Registry every year. These movies are said to be "culturally, historically or aesthetically" significant. Beyond that, the only other requirement is that the movies must be at least 10 years old.

Superman: The Movie Added To National Film Registry

Even though we receive at least a half dozen superhero films on a yearly basis these days, the fact of the matter is that we owe a great debt to director Richard Donner and all involved in the production of Superman: The Movie back in the late 1970s. Before then, a blockbuster of that scale centered on a comic book character was simply unheard of, so to think that a genre was handily legitimized with such an effort is indeed commendable.

Taking that and other factors into consideration, the Library of Congress has chosen the movie that made us believe a man could fly to be among the 25 selected this year to be a part of the National Film Registry. And when you consider how many movies the American entertainment industry has produced over the years, that really puts it in perspective as to how much of an honor this is.

Kali may return for Stranger Things Season 3, says co-creator Matt Duffer

Stranger Things season 2 was very well-received all around, but there was one particular episode of the season that was not so adored. Reviled, one could say. Entire articles were dedicated to it, with words like “embarrassing” not uncommon to read. That episode was “The Lost Sister”, and it’s been trashed so heavily by viewers that The Duffer Brothers actually had to go on record to defend it.

Now, was it that bad? Depends on who you ask. But one thing is for certain: that plot-line isn’t going anywhere. At the Vulture Film Festival, Matt Duffer talked a little about Kali, Jane’s — a.k.a. Eleven’s — “sister”. Will she show up in Season 3? Here’s what he said (via Deadline):

“It feels weird to me that we wouldn’t solve [Kali’s] storyline. I would say chances are very high she comes back… We are [in] very early days
