Now Streaming: “Stranger Things” on Netflix (10/27/2017)

The show “Stranger Things” has become quite the hit across the interests of fans of Horror, Science Fiction and comic book stuff and beginning immediately on this date, the second season will be available for streaming on the Netflix service. Here’s the official season two poster which I’ve followed by the premise and some casting. Are you excited?

The Premise: Stranger Things is set in the fictional rural town of Hawkins, Indiana, during the early 1980s. The nearby Hawkins National Laboratory ostensibly performs scientific research for the United States Department of Energy, but secretly does experiments into the paranormal and supernatural, including those that involve human test subjects. These start to affect the unknowing residents of Hawkins in calamitous ways.

The Cast/Characters:
Winona Ryder as Joyce Byers
David Harbour as Jim Hopper
Finn Wolfhard as Mike Wheeler
Millie Bobby Brown as Eleven (“El”)
Gaten Matarazzo as Dustin Henderson

20th Century Fox’s “The New Mutants” Official Trailer

Though a lot of us fans out there wish that the X-Men family of characters were back in the hands of Marvel Studios, one has to agree that the people at 20th Century Fox have succeeded without a doubt with the films “Deadpool” and “Logan”. Each of those were rated “R” and pulled out all the stops that one would expect in such a film and heck, even “X-Men: Age Of Apocalypse” was not too bad. The next film in the franchise comes with “The New Mutants” and the first trailer was released a few days ago. Check it out.

The Premise: Five young mutants, just discovering their abilities while held in a secret facility against their will, fight to escape their past sins and save themselves. (thanks Wiki)

The Cast/Characters:
Anya Taylor-Joy as Illyana Rasputin/Magik
Maisie Williams as Rahne Sinclair/Wolfsbane
Charlie Heaton as Sam Guthrie/Cannonball
Henry Zaga as Roberto da Costa/Sunspot
Blu Hunt as Danielle Moonstar/Mirage
Alice Braga as Cecilia Reyes

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Though I’m not sure about how much I like the idea of “The New Mutants” being a bit of a Horror film, I am surprisingly intrigued about their taking this route. I enjoyed the original cast of characters in the comic book that I purchased so very long ago and think that it will be cool to see them fleshed out on the big screen. Fox did a pretty great job with “Logan” and if you have not seen that one yet I say get to purchasing the DVD release, or the Blu-ray since that is what we did. This film comes out in April of 2018 so I am thinking that a longer and more in-depth trailer will be coming eventually. When that happens you can count on my sharing it here. Until then you can let me know what you think about this one down below.

Netflix Spotlights “Stranger Things” Season 2 “Homage” Posters

I guess it was about a month ago that I showcased some character posters for the second season of the Netflix Original Series “Stranger Things”. They were cool and showcased some new additions to the cast and here we are once again with a new batch of visuals. This time around, Netflix has given us posters that are done in honor of some classic Horror and Science Fiction movies of the past. I really liked these and think that you will as well. They follow the show premise and I’ll close up with some additional editorial thoughts.

Check Out Netflix’s “Stranger Things” Season 2 Character Posters

Back in July, I shared the “Thriller” trailer for the second season of the Netflix Original Series “Stranger Things”. It premiered during the Comic Con International: San Diego event and if you missed it just catch up courtesy of THIS LINK. When I shared the trailer, I admitted that I was asleep when the buzz began about this show and despite my desire to binge watch it I just haven’t managed to find the time. Anyway, so the other day a whole bunch of character posters were unveiled and since this is something that I love to share with the readership, I have included them right after the show premise. Take a gander. I’ll close up with some additional editorial thoughts.
