Anne Hathaway is one of the many A-list talents who has visited Sesame Street, appearing in Elmo’s Christmas Countdown in 2009 to sing “I Want A Snuffy For Christmas” (seen below) with Big Bird and Snuffleupagus.

Now it looks like she will have a larger Sesame Street role. New reports say the actress is being eyed to star in a film based on the long-running children’s show alongside Big Bird, Oscar the Grouch, and many more. Check out the full report, below.

The Darkest Minds

A couple of years back now we found out that Kung Fu Panda 2 and Kung Fu Panda 3 director Jennifer Yuh Nelson had signed on to direct The Darkest Minds. The movie, which was written by Chad Hodge (Good Behavior, Wayward Pines), is an adaptation of author Alexandra Bracken‘s novel of the same name, which is part of an existing trilogy (with a new book on the way) that will no doubt be used in sequels should this perform well at the box office.

Now 20th Century Fox has released an official trailer for the movie, which stars Amandla Stenberg, Harris Dickinson, Skylan Brooks, Miya Cech, Mandy Moore, and Gwendoline Christie. Producing is Shawn Levy (Stranger Things, Arrival) and Dan Levine (Arrival, Along Came Polly).

Continue below for more info on The Darkest Minds and to check out the trailer and a new poster.

Stranger Things Netflix

This will come as no great surprise to fans, but Netflix has made things official: Stranger Things season three is coming.

Netflix first teased fans of the show with a survey asking whether or not they should do another season. The answer was, obviously, overwhelmingly in favor. Netflix didn’t keep everyone waiting, confirming another season was on the way just two minutes after launching the survey.

You can find the tweets below, along with the press release sent out after.

The popularity of Netflix’s Stranger Things has inspired a phenomenon. The show, which takes cues from many iconic sci-fi films of the ’80s, will be debuting its second season tomorrow.

And what would a hit show be without an aftershow. But how does an aftershow work for a series that releases all its episodes in one day? Well, Netflix has figured that out with Beyond Stranger Things, hosted by Jim Rash (Community). More on the story and a sneak peak video of the show below.

Tom Holland in Spider-Man: Homecoming

Sony has finally found someone to play Nathan Drake in their long-in-development movie based on the Uncharted video game series, and it is not someone you were expecting.

It would appear that the studio is quite high on the star of their latest reboot of the Spider-Man franchise, Tom Holland, as the actor has become the latest actor attached to play Drake. Why they chose such a young actor for the role makes a little more sense when you see the reason, though I’m not very confident that it will make fans of the games feel better about the casting or the direction the movie is now moving in.

Stranger Things Netflix banner

The number of directors for the first season of the Netflix series Stranger Things was limited to three people. The Duffer Brothers helmed six of the eight episodes, while Shawn Levy was behind the lens for two. Since the show caught fire last year, it comes as no surprise that other creative filmmakers would want to direct an episode or two in Season 2. One of those people will be Pixar’s very own Andrew Stanton, the director of Disney’s Finding Nemo, Wall-E, Finding Dory, and the underrated John Carter.

Meanwhile, The Duffer Brothers discussed why they needed to change some of the episodes for Season 2. Because apparently the internet is way too smart and have discovered some connections. Check out more on these stories here below.

Uncharted: Drake's Fortune

A movie based on developer Naughty Dog’s hit Uncharted video game series has been in the works for a long time now. Many have tried, and failed, to bring it to life on the big screen. At this point, most of those interested in seeing the movie roll their eyes when news of another attempt at making the movie arrives.

So, with that said, here’s some new news on the Uncharted movie! It’s being reported that yet another director has been hired in Shawn Levy to try to pull off the adaptation. Levy is best known as the director behind the Night at the Museum movies, and he is an executive producer of the Netflix hit Stranger Things and directed a couple of episodes. He’s also directed titles like Cheaper by the Dozen, The Pink Panther (2006), Date Night, Real Steel, and The Internship.

Stranger Things is the latest binge-worthy effort to hit Netflix, with all 8 episode debuting on July 15th. Check out my review of the first episode here: Chapter 1.

Hitting all the good nostalgia checkmarks, the show lets its audience know who the creators grew up with. Movie posters adorn the kids’ walls showing Jaws, The Thing, Evil Dead, etc. Stranger Things takes place in Hawkins, Indiana in the winter of 1983, where something has escaped from a Department of Energy research facility and a young boy is now missing. At the same time, a strange young girl mysteriously shows up and encounters the boy’s friends who are out desperately searching for him. There are evil government scientists, led by Dr. Brenner (Matthew Modine) hunting the girl and hiding some giant monster in the facility.

Spoilers below.
