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. Here's what Librarian of Congress Carla Hayden had to say about 2017's additions to the National Film Registry.

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

Crypt of Curiosities: The Cat People Films

  • DailyDead
Next to Universal, few studios have had such a big impact on horror than Rko Radio Pictures. Started in 1927, Rko was the first studio founded to make exclusively sound films, a then-brand-new invention that served as a major draw for the studio. Rko’s life was relatively short (it was killed just 30 years after forming), but during their time, they put out a seriously impressive number of classics, including Top Hat, It’s a Wonderful Life, The Informer, and most notably, Citizen Kane.

Of course, Rko didn’t shy away from horror. While their output wasn’t nearly as prolific as, say, Universal’s, it was still quite impressive, boasting some of the most formative and important horror films of old Hollywood. Rko saw the release of a few all-time classics, including I Walked With a Zombie, The Thing From Another World, King Kong, and the topic of today’s Crypt,

Stranger Things’ David Harbour on Hopper and Joyce Byers getting together: “We’ll have to see where that goes”

Ever since Stranger Things Season 2 released last month, the internet has been busy “shipping” series mainstays Sheriff Jim Hopper (David Harbour), and Joyce Byers (Winona Ryder). The potential for a relationship has been present since season 1, but the introduction of alpha-male Bob Newby as Joyce’s love interest put that romance to rest. For now. What does actor David Harbour think about Hopper, and Joyce getting together in future seasons? Chatting with Variety, the actor shared his thoughts:

“These are two lost, broken people who need each other but are so prideful and messed up that they’ll never admit it. It’s great to allow that to play out over several seasons…I don’t know that ultimately they’re quite right for each other. Talk about problems! If Eleven is difficult, imagine him and Joyce. There would be nightmare fights! Him being prideful and emotionally shut down and unavailable.

The Duffer Brothers on whether we will see Dr. Brenner return in future seasons of Stranger Things

There’s an old rule in television stating that if you don’t see someone die on screen, then they aren’t dead. Now, there are always examples to the contrary, but still, this is a pretty safe bet when it comes to TV. Take Matthew Modine’s Dr. Brenner from Season 1 of Stranger Things, for example. We can assume that he’s dead, but we did not explicitly see it. In fact, if you have finished Season 2 of the hit Netflix series, you will know that his fate is very much up in the air.

So what do Stranger Things creators Matt, and Ross Duffer have to say on the matter? While attending a master-class event at Chapman University, The Duffer Brothers were asked about the fate of the Season 1 antagonist, to which they replied (via Cinemablend):

“I think we’ll leave Brenner’s fate, you know…We wanted to hint at that,

Sean Astin originally auditioned for a different part in Stranger Things season 2

Sean Astin read for a part other than Bob when he auditioned for Stranger Things season 2.

Bob, a character played by Astin in season 2 of the hit sci-fi Netflix series, has quickly become a fan favourite thanks to his heroic antics, polite sensibility, lame jokes, and overall likeability.

But Astin actually auditioned for another role, only to be given the part of Bob because of how suited he was for the character.

Astin read for the part of Murray Bauman, the conspiracy theorist who helps the kids get the word out about the experiments and cover ups happening in their town.

“I got a call right away saying they thought it was fantastic, but they actually think you’re more right for another character, Bob,” he told Variety. “I went back the next day and auditioned again for 10 minutes, and then I got a call saying they loved me for it.
