New ‘Stranger Things’ Monster May Have An Unbelieva-Billy Dark Twist

The new “Stranger Things” Season 3 trailer gave us a look at what life is like for the residents of Hawkins, Indiana, after their adventures in the Upside Down; a glimpse at the new characters coming to the show, such as those played by Maya Hawke and Cary Elwes; and there’s even a Dad-Steve (Joe Keery) and Dustin (Gaten Matarazzo) moment. That’s all great, but here’s the thing … Besides fun shots of life in the ’80s, the trailer also includes a glimpse at a new monster, which seems to be going for this whole demon-crab-meets-aggressive-Silly-Putty aesthetic.

From that scene, as well as other hints in the new promo, fans started speculating that Season 3 has a dark twist with an already-dark character: The theory: Billy is the ...

Comedian Amy Schumer gets personal in her new comedy special, sharing that her husband, Chris Fischer, has autism spectrum disorder. “I knew from the beginning that my husband’s brain was a little different than mine,” Schumer said in “Amy Schumer Growing,” which began streaming on Netflix Tuesday. “I have to start this over because I really want to get this right because I love him very much.” “My husband was diagnosed with what used to be called Asperger’s. He has autism spectrum disorder. He’s on the spectrum,” Schumer said, per Entertainment Tonight. “And there were some signs early on.” ASD is usually diagnosed in young children, but adults can be diagnosed as well.

Fans Mourn As Netflix Announces It Won’t Renew ‘One Day At A Time’

Time to say goodbye to the Alvarez family. Netflix shared a heartfelt announcement on Twitter Thursday that it will not renew the sitcom “One Day at a Time” for a fourth season.  We’ve made the very difficult decision not to renew One Day At A Time for a fourth season. The choice did not come easily — we spent several weeks trying to find a way to make another season work but in the end simply not enough people watched to justify another season. — Netflix US (@netflix) March 14, 2019 Thank you Norman Lear for bringing this series back to television. Thank you Gloria Calderon Kellett & Mike Royce for always making us laugh and never shying away from bravely and beautifully tackling tough subject matter in a meaningful way — Netflix US (@netflix) March 14, 2019 To Justina Machado, Todd G...

Idris Elba Talks His Teenage Start As A DJ Ahead Of His New Netflix Series

Idris Elba discussed his love of being a DJ and of music generally ahead of the Friday debut of his new Netflix series, “Turn Up Charlie.” In an Associated Press interview published Thursday, Elba said his DJing experience extends back to his early teen years. “I love DJing so much,” the 46-year-old said. “I got into it because my uncle was a DJ ― he did weddings and whatnot. So when I was 14, I would travel with him wherever he went, lift the record boxes,” the former “Wire” actor recalled. “When he decided he was a bit tired, I would take over ― that was how I got in.”  If you like reggae, check this tune I produced for Yardie Featuring Tanika and Kranium 😎😎🔥🔥 Listen here: https://t.co/y8Vqs7HWbY https://t.co/Sx69ozq6Cl — Idris Elba (@idriselba) March 11, 2019 Elba noted that he continue...

Ava DuVernay Releases Teaser For Central Park Five Netflix Series ‘When They See Us’

Ava DuVernay on Friday shared a first look at her new project for Netflix, “When They See Us,” a dramatized series centered on the infamous Central Park Five case. The “13th” director tweeted a teaser for the upcoming series, set for release on the streaming giant on May 31. The four-part limited series will focus on the story of five black and Latino teenagers from Harlem who were wrongly convicted of brutally raping Trisha Meili, a white woman, in New York City’s Central Park in 1989.  Antron McCray, Korey Wise, Kevin Richardson, Yusef Salaam and Raymond Santana were exonerated in 2002 after DNA evidence and a confession linked Matias Reyes, a convicted murderer and rapist, to the crime.  Not thugs. Not wilding. Not criminals. Not even the Central Park Five. They are Korey, Antron, Raymo...

Hasan Minhaj: ‘I’m Not Built For This Beef’ With Saudi Arabia

Nearly two months after Netflix pulled an episode of his show from airing in Saudi Arabia, comedian Hasan Minhaj said he’s not prepared to battle the county’s oppressive regime. “I’m not built for this beef,” the “Patriot Act” star joked to CNN’s Van Jones during an interview Saturday. “I’m not ready to go head-to-head with dictators or autocrats, so I’m sorry in advance. Like, I want to live to see the retweets.” In early January, reports emerged that the streaming service had decided to yank the episode in which Minhaj condemned the alleged role of Saudi Arabia’s leaders in the murder of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi. The Saudi’s claimed Minhaj’s show broke its cybercrime laws. However, the episode remained available on YouTube and on Netflix’s U.S. platform. Minhaj told Jon...

With ‘High Flying Bird,’ Steven Soderbergh Remains Hollywood’s Iconoclast

Trace a director’s work for enough years, and eventually a theme emerges. Steven Soderbergh’s is power. More specifically, upending the structures that give authority figures disproportionate advantages ― a fitting snapshot of his own career, in which Soderbergh has exacted a one-two punch: becoming one of America’s most famous filmmakers and defying the Hollywood ecosystem that won him such an honor. Soderbergh’s newest movie, “High Flying Bird,” is a distillation of that legacy; it is, in an unassuming way, everything he’s been working toward since his 1989 breakthrough “Sex, Lies, and Videotape.”  “I’m clearly interested in characters who think, by force of will, that they can alter the universe that they’re operating in,” the 56-year-old Soderbergh recently told me during a wide-rangin...
