'Stranger Things' Season 2: Here's a guide to 1984 in pop culture

1 September 2016 3:33 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Just in case you've been living in the Upside Down, let me get you up to speed: Stranger Things Season 2 is officially happening. And as revealed by the show's unreasonably-attractive creators the Duffer Brothers, the new episodes will be set a year after the events of the first season, which would place the characters squarely in the latter days of 1984 (Season 1 took place between November and December of 1983). While that's not a whole lot later, it's still enough time for a massive number of pop-culture and consumer products to have been introduced in the interim, from film to TV to music to technology. So what, pray tell, will Mike, Dustin, Lucas, Nancy, Jonathan and Steve (but not Barb, obvs) be using, watching, wearing, reading and listening to in the new season that wouldn't have been available to them in the prior timeline because they didn't exist yet? For those curious »

What happened to 1990's 10 most promising movie executives?

31 August 2016 2:31 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew Sep 2, 2016

Premiere magazine highlighted 10 movie executives to watch in 1990. So what happened to them?

In its May 1990 issue, the sadly-missed Us version of Premiere magazine published an article, highlighting ten young movie executives, and suggesting that these were people with very big futures ahead of them in the industry.

Given that much is written about movie executives, without actually digging much deeper to find out who they actually are, I thought it was worth tracing what happened to these ten, and – 26 years later – whether Premiere was correct in saluting them as the future of the industry. So, er, I did...

Lance Young

Senior production VP, Paramount Pictures

Pictured in the article on an office swivel chair with some snazzy purple socks, Lance Young, Premiere wrote, had been “groomed for big things since joining Paramount at the age of 23”. He was 30 at the time the article was published, and »

John Krasinski Admits It's 'Super Intimidating' to Step into Alec Baldwin and Harrison Ford's Shoes as New Jack Ryan

26 August 2016 12:55 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

John Krasinski is officially adding his name to the illustrious list of stars who've portrayed Tom Clancy's iconic character Jack Ryan - and, yea, he's "a little nervous." Krasinski's turn as the CIA agent will headline a new, 10-episode Amazon series. Ryan has previously been brought to the big screen by Harrison Ford in Patriot Games and Clear and Present Danger, Alec Baldwin in The Hunt for Red October, Ben Affleck in The Sum of All Fears and, most recently, Chris Pine in Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit.

So in honour of Sean Connery's birthday, we've put together a list of some of our favourite of his roles! 1. The Hunt for Red October This 1990 spy thriller is about the Red October, a nuclear soviet submarine whose captain (played by Connery) breaks rank and decides on his own command to take the submarine to Us waters!

Amazon’s Jack Ryan Series Will Tackle Isis, TV Spinoff Likened To “Ten-Part Movie”

24 August 2016 1:00 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Not a week has passed since Amazon issued the greenlight for the John Krasinski-fronted Jack Ryan series and already, the lead star is beginning to stir excitement about this new and seemingly prescient spin on the Tom Clancy character.

Krasinski, who found success flexing his comedic chops on The Office, muscled his way into the breathless world of action cinema via Michael Bay thriller 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi last year – a baptism of fire if there ever was one. For Jack Ryan, though, he’ll assume leading man duties for the ten-episode series, which has been likened to a “ten-part movie” by Krasinski himself.

Not only that, Amazon’s series – one executive produced by Carlton Cuse (Bates Motel, The Strain) – is primed to tackle major issues currently occupying world headlines, including the Islamic State. Per Collider:

John Krasinski Will Play Jack Ryan in Amazon Series

16 August 2016 11:05 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

John Krasinski has been missing from the small screen after wrapping up The Office in 2013, but that's about to change. The 36-year-old actor has signed on to play author Tom Clancy's iconic CIA character Jack Ryan in a new 10-episode series for Amazon. While no premiere date has been set, Jack Ryan comes from executive producer Michael Bay and the Lost duo of co-showrunner Cartlon Cuse and writer Graham Roland - who will also executive produce. Krasinski first teased the news back in May, captioning a Twitter shot of a stack of Clancy's books "summer reading." Summer reading pic. »

Alan Ladd Jr. Documentary Proves There’s Life Beyond the Original ‘Star Wars’

12 August 2016 7:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

When Alan Ladd Jr. was president of 20th Century Fox Pictures in the 1970s, he greenlit “Star Wars” and “Alien.”

That alone ensures him a place in Hollywood history. But his career also includes a third sci-fi classic — “Blade Runner” — as well as “The Omen,” “Young Frankenstein,” “Braveheart,” “Chariots of Fire,” and other cinema biggies through 2007’s “Gone Baby Gone.”

The executive is now the subject of a documentary, “It’s Always About the Story: Conversations With Alan Ladd Jr.,” which screens Aug. 13 at the Marina del Rey Festival before it continues on the festival circuit. The doc is one of four films (so far) in the Film History Preservation Project. It’s the brainchild of director-producer Stanley Isaacs, who is planning more such docs, to bring wider recognition to Hollywood’s unsung heroes: film producers.

Film buffs know stars and directors, but rarely know producers or executives like Ladd, »

McTiernan Slams "Mad Max," Superhero Films

12 July 2016 9:07 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

In the late 1980s to early 1990s, filmmaker John McTiernan unleashed a trio of films in a row that are still considered formative films of the Hollywood action genre - primal but smart blockbusters which changed how those kind of movies were made.

Those films were "Predator," "Die Hard" and "The Hunt For Red October". McTiernan has had a few success stories since then, most notably "Die Hard with a Vengeance" and his "The Thomas Crown Affair" remake, but otherwise has yet to be able to recapture that elusive spark - making headlines more for legal woes than anything in recent years.

Even so, McTiernan remains an Academy member with strong opinions and has unleashed those opinions in a new interview with Premiere (via The Playlist) where he offers both the superhero genre and George Miller's "Mad Max: Fury Road" some harsh words. Though he says he likes the first "Mad Max, »

John McTiernan Dismisses ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ As A “Corporate Product,” Says Comic Book Movies Are Made By “Fascists”

John McTiernan was once the king of the Hollywood action blockbuster. The director earned a reputation for making some of the best big screen spectacles of his day, with “Predator,” “Die Hard,” “The Hunt For Red October,” and “Die Hard With A Vengeance” all to his name. However, he hit a major bump in the […]

"Predator" Restoration Gets A Trailer

4 July 2016 11:02 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

One of the quintessential films of the 1980s is without a doubt "Predator".

The first of John McTiernan's hat trick of action masterpieces, the subsequent two being "Die Hard" and "The Hunt for Red October," the more sci-fi bent "Predator" remains a brilliant macho men vs. monster tale that many have tried to imitate - but all have lacked its knack for suspense, its cleverly yet simple premise, its utterly believable sweaty jungle setting (just outside Puerto Vallarta in Mexico), and that wonderful score.

Unfortunately the home video releases for the film leave a lot to be desired. In particular it has been released on Blu-ray in two versions - the first came in 2008 and was encoded at a low enough bit rate and without any real work on the aged print which offers little better than the DVD. The second was issued n 2010 and is still the current version. »

Generally speaking, fancypants restorations tend to be the domain of arthouse faves or works by revered auteurs, not pictures from the guy who directed “Die Hard” and “The Hunt For Red October.” However, there’s always a few exceptions to the rule, and John McTiernan‘s “Predator” starring Arnold Schwarzenegger is one of them.
