Legendary television writer Norman Lear recently renewed the overall deal he has with Sony. The deal is set to take Lear into his 100th year on this planet of ours.
Variety published a feature about the 97-year-old Lear, but it was just a small part of that feature that set the ol’ internet on fire today. In it there is a quote from Sony Pictures Entertainment chairman and CEO Tony Vinciquerra, who says that some “very famous people” have approached Sony with hopes of remaking the 1987 fairy tale classic The Princess Bride, which was executive produced by Lear. You can see what he had to say below.
When it comes to the teaser trailers for Stranger Things, you can expect to see… nothing. But that is purely by design. The teaser trailers do reveal something, though: episode titles. And these titles will leave us speculating on what we will see and how they serve as a device to move the show forward. Now, Netflix is giving us our first look at those titles for Season 3, a lot of which has to do with what we have seen and heard in the past, which includes more references to the ’80s. Check out the titles and the trailer here below.
Netflix has announced the casting of a pair of new faces for Stranger Things season three.
The streaming service has announced that Cary Elwes, best known for his roles in films like The Princess Bride, Glory, Saw, and Robin Hood: Men in Tights, and Jake Busey, who starred in Starship Troopers, The Frighteners, Identity, and the upcoming Predator movie being directed by Shane Black, have joined the cast of the hit series.

The iconic photo of President Richard Nixon shaking hands with Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Elvis Presley is often described as strange and bizarre. But if it wasn’t for that historic meeting, Liza Johnson’s new comedy, Elvis & Nixon, starring Michael Shannon and Kevin Spacey, as the respective icons, would not be happening.
Johnson’s new film documents the two real-life figures meeting for the first time at the White House’s Oval Office, but there is more to this event than a photo-op. The story behind this meeting is that Elvis really wanted a badge from the Federal Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs, and would go as far as offering his services to the President to be an agent to get one.
Now we have our first look from the film, hit the jump to check it out.
