When last we caught up with Stranger Things’ heroes of Hawkins, they’d successfully managed to fend off yet another inter dimensional threat seeking to breach the divide and enter our world, and for about a few seconds it seemed as if Eleven and her friends were going to be able to enjoy their childhoods in peace.
Much like a demogorgon breaching the barrier between dimensions, apropos of nothing, the first trailer for Stranger Things’ third season unexpectedly appeared today and while it easily could have been something slight and teaser-y, it’s actually quite dense with details about what to expect. Shocker: things are gonna get weird and gross.
One of the more interesting parts of Netflix becoming one of the most disruptive studios in Hollywood is that, from the outside, there’s no real way to measure just how successful any of its movies or series are, because the company doesn’t release comprehensive data about what subscribers watch.
From Netflix’s perspective, though, more transparency doesn’t seem to be all that much of a concern. And frankly, all things considered, the company is right not to care.
In an about face, Netflix has decided to pull footage of the tragic Lac-Mégantic rail accident from its original film Bird Box — almost two months after a spokesperson said the clip will stay in the movie.
Longtime readers may have noticed our love for animated Argentinian web series La Frecuencia Kirlian, or Ghost Radio. All five episodes are now on Netflix, which is cause for excitement—as well as an excellent reason to chat up creators Cristian Ponce and Hernán Bengoa.
The specter of David Tennant’s Jessica Jones villain — Kilgrave, the mind-dominating Purple Man — has lingered across both seasons of the show so far. The character has become almost as inextricable from the series as Jess herself. But according to Tennant, that won’t be the case in its now-final season.
Audiences will lineup this weekend to check out the ‘90s nostalgia trip of Captain Marvel. Younger viewers will look at the Blockbuster Video Store featured in the film and have little understanding of what kind of business they’re looking at.
That’s because, at the same time, the staff of the last Blockbuster in Australia will be winding down the business and shuttering the store — leaving just one final location of the venerable franchise left on Earth.
Steven Spielberg has made many truly incredible movies in the past. He is, rightfully, one of the most lauded filmmakers ever. But as someone who had the distinct hell of watching Ready Player One on a flight recently, maybe we should consider that times have changed, and not everything he has to say is important.
Listen, I’m not here to argue about whether the 2004 film adaptation of Nicholas Sparks’ novel The Notebook starring Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling is or is not a good film. But to trim the last minute of the movie and swap in a comparatively dispassionate prelude to credits starring a flock of birds seems like, you know, kind of a bummer.
Brit Marling and Zal Batmanglij created something bold and bizarre for Netflix wth The OA. The series was divisive but certainly created a buzz. And while fans may have been wondering where they’d go after that shocker of a finale, the first season two trailer just revealed how they’d carry on. And it’s a pretty great idea.
We recently brought you a list of all the shows and movies leaving Netflix in February. At the time, we cautioned that additional titles might be removed on the last day of the month. Instead of "some", we should have said "a metric-butt-tonne".
Over the next two days, Netflix Australia is chopping over 60 more movies and TV shows. Casualties we're going to miss include Jaws, Gladiator, Mean Girls, Nanny McPhee and - nooo! - What We Do In The Shadows. Here's the full list: watch them while you still can.
Netflix’s live-action adaptation of Gerard Way and Gabriel Bá’s The Umbrella Academy is a curious blend. It mixes the original comic’s genuine oddness, which felt refreshing back in 2007 when Dark Horse first began publishing the series, and the kind of formulaic TV storytelling that’s come to define most of the streaming platform’s superhero-focused content.
