Newest “It” Trailer will Scare the Deadlights Out of You

The newest trailer for Andrés Muschietti’s version of Stephen King’s It hit the interwebs today and it looks like we’re in for a scary trip through Derry, Maine with the Losers Club. The first trailer for It was streamed 197 million times globally in 24 hours and I will not be surprised if this new trailer breaks that record.

Starring Bill Skarsgård (Hemlock Grove) as Pennywise the Dancing Clown and Finn Wolfhard (Stranger Things) as Richie Tozier, It will be the second Stephen King movie released this year following the eagerly awaited The Dark Tower next week. read more

New Trailer for Season Two of “Stranger Things”

Stranger Things, the biggest surprise hit of last year, just dropped their trailer for the eagerly-awaited second season at San Diego Comic Con and it contains so much awesome! It’s 1984 and the citizens of Hawkins, Indiana are still reeling from the horrors of the demogorgon and the secrets of Hawkins Lab. Will Byers has been rescued from the Upside Down but a bigger, sinister entity still threatens those who survived.

The nerdfest is strong with this trailer. From the hardest video game of all-time (Dragon’s Lair) to Ghostbusters costumes to Sean Astin to Michael Jackson’s Thriller, this trailer screams 80’s as much as it screams, “oh crap, Hawkins is in trouble”. By the looks of that Stephen King’s The Mist-type monster lurking in Hawkins, it seems like the town is in for a rough ride. read more

David Harbour on ‘Stranger Things’: “Justice for Barb is a Big Thing in Season 2”

Something strange happened following the overwhelming success of last summer’s debut of Stranger Things on Netflix. While many fans were fascinated by the series’ addictive nostalgia, or its sharp blend of sci-fi and horror, or its ensemble cast of characters, a vocal group of viewers became obsessed with Shannon Purser’s Barb. The character appeared in a handful of scenes across four episodes, but some internet crusaders couldn’t get over the secondary character’s death and the lack of impact it had on the main story and its main characters. “Justice for Barb” memes could soon be found all over the internets, along with wild speculation that the character wasn’t dead, or that the second season would surely right the wrongs of its predecessor. read more

Netflix Infinite Runner Features Stranger Things Characters

Netflix has just released a browser based game featuring characters from their orginal series including Stranger Things.
