35 Things You Didn't Know About Stranger Things

Dan Cooper Nov 20, 2018

Inspirations, special effects, a nod to Jaws and what could have been a near fatal accident, we go behind the scenes on Stranger Things...

This story originally appeared on Den of Geek UK.

If like me, you’re a Stranger Things aficionado, you’re probably kicking your heels and mourning not making the annual round trip to Hawkins, Indiana this autumn, as the show takes a year off before season three releases. Upsetting, I know. While you could "do a Joyce" and spend that time howling in anguish at the walls, cursing the fickle and cruel gods of television, ultimately, that’s an inadvisable approach, as you’ll probably just get a sore throat and blame it on us.

Fear not though, because a crumb of comfort is on the way. The official Stranger Things behind-the-scenes companion has just released, courtesy of Penguin Random House, and it

Hollywood’s New Leaders 2018: Television
Each year Variety’s New Leaders feature profiles the most prominent up-and-comers in the entertainment business. To determine this year’s worthies, Variety looked across disciplines, from television, digital, music and film, to law and finance, as well as content creators. They were proposed by their bosses and peers who have worked with them and seen their rise. All are age 40 or under, and Variety has measured them by the progress of their career trajectories: do they take calculated risks? How fast have they risen in their companies? Are they innovative and employ solutions to problems that are creative? As part of the salute to the qualities that keep the town humming, filmmaker/producer Travis Knight, who founded Laika Studios and is finishing up the anticipated “Bumblebee” for Paramount, as well as Variety‘s 10 Assistants to Watch along with the New Leaders will be recognized Oct. 17, at the Jeremy Hotel rooftop in West Hollywood.

6 Good Things That Came Out of Bad Movies

Paul Bradshaw Oct 15, 2018

Because every Gigli has a silver lining, we look at how bad movies ultimately made good things happen.

No movie is all bad. Some films seem so misguided that it’s hard to see why anyone didn't stop them being made before they cost so much time, money and talent, yet sometimes those same mistakes have led to something genuinely great further down the line.

Careers have been ruined by stinkers like After Earth and Gigli – but they’ve also been made. A really, truly, unequivocally terrible movie often makes a big impact in the film industry as everyone else scrabbles to try and avoid repeating it – shaping genres, shifting tides and making sure we never have to watch The Last Airbender again.

However bad some movies might be, there’s always a silver lining if you look for it…

Matt Reeves and Shonda Rhimes Are Developing a Film and TV Adaptation of The Sci-Fi Thriller Recursion

Netflix has landed the rights to Blake Crouch’s upcoming sci-fi thriller novel Recursion and there’s a great creative team coming together to develop it as both a film and a series. Filmmaker Matt Reeves has jumped on board the project as has Shonda Rhimes (Scandal, Grey’s Anatomy, Private Practice). Before we go on, here’s a rundown of the fascinating story which comes from the guy who wrote the Wayward Pines trilogy:

Recursion is part save-the-world sci-fi thriller, part epic romance, as well as an intricate police procedural. The book explores what happens when a brilliant female scientist invents a powerful technology that allows people not just to reactivate their most visceral memories but to reinvent them entirely. For some, it offers the chance to rewrite their entire lives. In the wrong hands, it will upend the world as we know it.

A History of Creepy Small Towns on TV, From ‘Twin Peaks’ to ‘Riverdale’ (Photos)

“Quiet town, peaceful, low maintenance. It can stay that way,” says a federal agent to the sheriff of the small town at the center of the new ABC drama “The Crossing,” airing on April 2 at 10 p.m./9 p.m. Ct. Yeah, good luck with that. In TV and movies, crazy, creepy, sci-fi, monster movie junk always goes down in quaint, tiny, Middle American suburbs far more often than it does in a big city. Who has time for aliens in New York? Give me a full on invasion or nothing. Leave the odd-goings on and the mysterious, unsolved disappearances to the town folk. This list charts the history of America’s fictional creepy small towns from kind of weird to David Lynchian-grade bananas.

The Stars of the New 'Charmed' Reveal to Us Why You Should Watch This Reboot

The faces may have changed on Charmed, but the premise is most definitely the same: three sisters, who have lost their mother, discover that they are actually “The Charmed Ones,” a trio of witches whose combined powers are designed to protect humanity from a wide variety of demons. Whereas the sisters in the original 1998-2006 series were played by Shannen Doherty (later replaced by Rose McGowan), Holly Marie Combs, and Alyssa Milano, this version stars Madeleine Mantock as Macy Vaughn, Melonie Diaz as middle sister Melanie “Mel” Vera, and Sarah Jeffery as youngest sister Margarita “Maggie” Vera.
