David Harbor has high hopes for Hopper. The “Stranger Things” actor has shared a sense of an ending for his character Hopper in the upcoming series-ender “Stranger Things 5.” While Harbour told Total Film that Hopper “deserves peace,” he doesn’t have any specifics yet as to what the final season has in store. “I have some idea of shape and structure, and what the overall thing is, but I don’t have a lot of specifics yet,” Harbour said. “I’m very trusting of the way [the Duffer Brothers] go about it. I have my ideas each season about what I would like to see him go through – I send them an email – and often they’re very responsive to that. But I haven’t got a full script yet for Episode 1.” Harbour continued, “It’s funny. I believe in...
The first trailer for “Crime Scene: The Texas Killing Fields,” a new true crime docuseries coming to Netflix this month, has been released. The miniseries is the third in a series of “Crime Scene” documentaries for the streamer, which explore murder cases in different parts of the United States. Last year saw the series debut with two installments: “The Vanishing at the Cecil Hotel,” which focused on the 2013 death of Elisa Lam at the titular Los Angeles hotel, and “The Times Square Killer,” which profiled serial killer Richard Cottingham. “The Texas Killing Fields” turns its attention to a patch of land along the interstate between Houston and Galveston that gained its gruesome nickname for the number of dead bodies that have been...
A sequel to the 2017 Taylor Sheridan thriller “Wind River” is in the works, and “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier” director Kari Skogland is set to direct the film that will see Martin Sensmeier (“1883,” “Westworld”) reprising his role from the original film. The film is titled “Wind River: The Next Chapter” and hails from Rob Reiner’s newly relaunched label Castle Rock Entertainment. Additional cast will be announced soon, but it’s unclear if the film’s original stars Jeremy Renner and Elizabeth Olsen will return in any capacity. Sheridan, who directed and wrote the original “Wind River,” is not involved in the sequel. 2017’s “Wind River” followed a hunter (Renner) who aids an FBI agent (Olsen) in the investigation of the murder of...
Over two years after Netflix’s “Tiger King” took streaming by storm — and just a few months after Peacock’s own fictional series about Carole Baskin and Joe Exotic premiered — Peacock is bringing a new story of cats and crime to the docuseries space. The first trailer for “Dangerous Breed: Crime. Cons. Cats,” a new true docuseries about wrestler Teddy Hart, was released by the streamer on Wednesday. Canadian nonfiction filmmaker Frederick Kroetsch, whose previous works include series like “Queen of the Oil Patch” and films like “Last of the Fur Traders,” directs the series, which focuses on the 10 years he spent filming Edward Ellsworth Annis, a wrestler on the independent circuit known by the ring name Teddy Hart. A controversial...
Britney Spears isn’t ready for the biopic treatment just yet. Shortly after “Stranger Things” star Millie Bobby Brown shared her aspiration of starring as Spears in a movie about the “Toxic” singer’s tumultuous life, the pop icon took to Instagram. “I hear about people wanting to do movies about my life…dude I’m not dead !!!” Spears captioned a photo of wooden doors on Instagram, in part. Spears continued, “I guess my family is going to lock their doors now!!! Either way…I just want to say hi and share these fabulous doors!!! I did kinda post too much this week…I’m embarrassed!!! I get it…oh well !!! Have a good day!!!” Brown previously said during “The Drew Barrymore Show” that Spears’ life story “resonates” with her. “I want to...
Ryan Reynolds experienced the exercise regimen of a lifetime: singing and dancing in a Christmas musical movie. The “Spirited” star revealed he became “terribly sore” during production for the modern twist on “A Christmas Carol” opposite Will Ferrell. “I felt like I was whittled down to next to nothing halfway through the movie,” Reynolds told People magazine of his weight loss. “I mean, we would wear those Fitbits and you’d see you get like 28,000 steps in a day. It was crazy.” “Spirited” centers on an updated Scrooge (Reynolds) who flips the script on the Ghost of Christmas Present (Ferrell) by forcing him to look at his own past, present, and future. The film premieres November 11 in theaters and November 18 on Apple TV+...
Anne Hathaway and Salma Hayek are boarding a bullet train for Netflix. The two actors are set to star in and produce a feature adaptation of the novel “Seesaw Monster,” by Kōtarō Isaka, who wrote the novel on which “Bullet Train” was based. Plot details of the film are under wraps, but Netflix describes the film as an action-comedy that will see Hathaway and Hayek play rivals forced to work together. The “Seesaw Monster” book was published in Japan in 2019 and has not yet been released in English, so little information about its plot exists online. News of the project follows the end of the theatrical run for “Bullet Train,” a Sony Pictures adaptation of Isaka’s thriller “Maria Beetle.” The book, the second in the mystery author’s...
The last thing that we see Chadwick Boseman’s King T’Challa do in 2018’s “Black Panther” is appear before the United Nations, where he reveals to the world that his African nation of Wakanda has secretly been a superpower for several thousand years. While the character would go on to appear in some other Marvel Cinematic Universe movies before the actor who played him succumbed to colon cancer in August 2020 — an illness that Boseman had endured with almost Wakandan privacy — T’Challa’s mid-credits declaration has since assumed the haunted urgency of a man’s dying wish. T’Challa’s defining act as the king of his country was to puncture the bubble that had protected Wakanda since that fateful day when a meteorite full of vibranium...
Is Ryan Murphy ready to return to “Glee”? The Emmy winner and showrunner behind Netflix’s “The Watcher” and controversial serial killer anthology series “Monster” revealed that he is tempted to revisit the beloved musical series. “I’m at the phase now with that show, you know, where it’s like, well, there’s been enough time. Like, maybe we should really re-examine it as a brand,” Murphy said on the “And That’s What You Really Missed” podcast (via ScreenRant). “You know, should we do a reboot of it in some way? Should we do a Broadway musical of it in some way?” Murphy continued, “Like, it’s sort of like an interesting legacy that I’m interested in doing in a positive way after sort of pausing for a while. But I don’t know. I just...
Ryan Reynolds is returning to a “traumatic” experience showing off his singing chops. While Reynolds and co-star Will Ferrell underwent a seven-week-long “theater camp” experience to lead film “Spirited,” a modern musical twist on “A Christmas Carol,” Reynolds recalled a not-as-successful turn singing in a Korean reality competition series. “I’ve been doing this job a long time, and you go on these international tours, and you start saying, ‘What’s the weirdest show we can go on?'” Reynolds said on “Today” of a 2018 stint on “King of Masked Singer,” the Korean version of “The Masked Singer.” “This was before ‘The Masked Singer’ was in the U.S. So they said, ‘They have this show called “The Masked Singer,” which is huge in South...
Elon Musk has only owned Twitter for a little over a week, but the billionaire is already making new enemies on the social media site. On Sunday, comedian Kathy Griffin was banned from Twitter after she changed her display name and profile picture to match Musk’s, and wrote several satirical tweets mocking the Tesla and Space X CEO. The “impersonation” was paper-thin — her handle remained @kathygriffin and could be seen on all her tweets — but the suspension was accompanied by a tweet from Musk stating that “any Twitter handles engaging in impersonation without clearly specifying ‘parody’ will be permanently suspended.” While the general policy against impersonation has already been a part of Twitter’s rules and policies for users...
After two years of virtual festivals, Sundance is overdue for a comeback. The Park City event is set to return to Park City on January 19 and continue through January 29. While films will still be available to online ticket holders starting January 24, the main emphasis will be the in-person experience that put Sundance on the map in the first place. While the pandemic disrupted the film industry in 2020, Sundance managed to take place that year just before the shutdowns, launching future Best Picture winner “CODA” into an unpredictable landscape. Now, the market and culture of moviegoing remains in flux, and Sundance is poised to return to the scene just in time to launch a wide array of movies into that ever-changing climate. And...
