David Harbour says he had "grown very cynical" by the time he filmed 'Stranger Things', and so didn't think the Netflix original series would be a success.
'Stranger Things' is without a doubt one of the most successful, critically-acclaimed and beloved original shows to come from Netflix. The streaming service first introduced the world to the fictional town of Hawkins, Indiana in 2016, and ever since millions of viewers across the globe have been obsessed with catching up with the residents of the area, and the goings on in the mysterious 'Upside Down'.
David Harbour thought 'Stranger Things' was being "buried"
Returning last year for its spectacular second season, fans now have to wait until 2019 before they get their next dose of narrative from creators Matt and Ross Duffer. What has been revealed however, is that there will be a 'Stranger Things' prequel novel written by Gwenda Bond, set to be published in the spring of 2019. It will serve as the first in a series of books based on the series. The story in this one will focus on Eleven's mother Terry, and her relationship and ties to the MKUltra program.

The actor is extremely passionate about his work.
Chief Hopper is without a doubt one of the most beloved characters from the 'Stranger Things' universe. Actor David Harbour is the man responsible for taking on the role in the Netflix original series, and through the character's adoration for Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) and the rest of the kids he's now become partly responsible for, he's found a lot of love with the wide viewing audience.

Hopper's story is something that was explored a little more in-depth recently, in that we all found out he once had a daughter called Sara, who unfortunately passed away and led to Hopper breaking up with his now-ex-wife.

The 'Stranger Things' actor is stepping into the titular role.
Mike Mignola's comic book creation 'Hellboy' is without a doubt one of the most popular cult classics on the planet today. In the past, Ron Perlman has helped bring the character to life in live-action, but now with a planned reboot movie in the works, it's 'Stranger Things' actor David Harbour who'll be stepping into the titular role.

The actor says that the pair are "lost, broken people who need each other".
Whilst 'Stranger Things' is a show very much about the strange world in which its fan-favourite characters live in, the Netflix original series also allows an underlying commentary on what friendship is all about, as well as relationships shared between those who love one another and the potential for those relationships to develop into something more in the future. That was never more apparent than in the second season's final episode, where a number of couplings looked to lay the foundations for the future.

Jim Hopper (David Harbour) and Joyce Byers (Winona Ryder) are one of those couplings, and though the two didn't make any official romantic connection in the season's last moments, there has been a chemistry between the pair for some time now. They rely on each other in their darkest moments and, following the traumatic and life-changing events of season 1, they realise that they'll have each other in one another's lives forever.

The actor plays the titular hero in the forthcoming adaptation.
Following the news of the 'Hellboy' re-casting this week, we also get to glimpse our first look at David Harbour as the titular hero - and he looks every bit as epic as we'd hoped. We've got a good fifteen months to go before the movie arrives, but we're definitely looking forward to the first trailer now.

The 'Suicide Squad' star takes over the role of this Dark Horse character, and the comic book creator Mike Mignola shared the first look from the movie reboot. It's not a massive departure from Ron Perlman's incarnation in the 2004 adaptation, but he's definitely bigger, redder, hairier and his 'Right Hand of Doom' is more powerful looking than ever.

The show makes its return to Netflix this October.
As one of Netflix's most successful original properties, 'Stranger Things' made an impression on viewers like other series could only dream of. Returning this October for a second season that promises to throw a whole lot more at fans than they've ever seen before, there are some lofty expectations riding on what will come from the creators, the Duffer Brothers.
David Harbour returns as Jim Hopper in 'Stranger Things' season 2
Throughout the first season, we were introduced to the alternate universe that was known as the Upside Down, where a demonic Demogorgon was revealed, taking the lives of Hawkins residents (RIP Barb) before eventually being destroyed for good by Eleven in the season 1 finale. It would seem that the Demogorgon was just the start of the trouble for those who live in Hawkins however, as a season 2 trailer has revealed even more evil to come.

The actor says fans may be confused during the first five minutes of the S2 premiere.
Over this past weekend, fans got a closer glimpse at the second season of Netflix original series 'Stranger Things' during San Diego Comic Con, when a brand new trailer was unveiled. Showing off the darkness and a huge monster that threatened the fictional town of Hawkins, Indiana via Will Byer's visions, it would seem we're going to delve right back into the horror of the Upside Down when the show makes its return.
David Harbour makes his return as Chief Hopper
The first season became such a success with viewers not only because of its slick storytelling and the brilliant cast of both veteran actors and young newbies, but because of the blend of genres and the throwbacks to the 80s, with various Easter Eggs for those eagle-eyed enough to catch them. That's something else that'll be expected to come back bigger and better than before, but if words from David Harbour - who plays Chief Hopper - are anything to go by, we could be in for a very unique season opener come October.

David Harbour teases a little of what to expect from the show's second season, hitting Netflix in October.
The incredible response 'Stranger Things' saw following its first season debut on Netflix last year was something most other shows could only dream of having. Telling the story of a missing young boy named Will in the fictional town of Hawkins, Indiana, the series quickly turned from the 'usual' case of missing person to something much more sinister, with sci-fi influences around every corner.

It didn't take long for the creators of the show - the Duffer Brothers - to get the call from Netflix, with the streaming service ordering a second season which is now set to debut a little later this year. But what should we expect when the new episodes hit the platform?

The critically-acclaimed series returns on Halloween.
There's no denying the incredible success 'Stranger Things' saw when the new Netflix original series hit the streaming platform towards the end of 2016. Bringing the fictional town of Hawkins to viewers, a brand new sci-fi world was opened up to fans, with the 'Upside Down' revealed as the place that had snatched up missing youngster, Will.

Bringing an incredible cast of talented youngsters and Hollywood veterans to the small screen, such as Winona Ryder and Millie Bobby Brown, the first season of the series was a beautiful example of exactly how well television could deliver a story to everybody at home with just a limited amount of episodes.

In remaking the 2011 French thriller Sleepless Night, the filmmakers have dumbed down both the title and the plot, leaving everything feeling rather over-familiar. Nothing remotely surprising happens, and there's absolutely no subtext beneath the relentless verbal and physical violence. But a first-rate cast makes it watchable, and the action sequences are shot with a gritty energy that's rarely seen in these kinds of mindless thrillers.
It's now set in Las Vegas, where Detective Vincent (Jamie Foxx) and his shifty partner Sean (Tip "T.I." Harris) have stolen a stash of drugs during a deal between psychotic criminal Novak (Scoot McNairy) and vicious casino boss Rubio (Dermot Mulroney). Also on their trail is the Internal Affairs investigator Bryant (Michelle Monaghan), who is looking into police corruption with her partner Dennison (David Harbour). And after Novak kidnaps Vincent's teen son (Octavius J. Johnson), he only has one long night to sort out the mess, catch the bad guys and clear his name.
The main problem here is that Vincent is a good guy from the start, an undercover straight-arrow who has absolutely no internal conflict. This doesn't give Foxx much to play with, aside from worrying about his son and juggling questions from his ex-wife (Gabrielle Union). He just charges through each scene as the only heroic figure on-screen, Die Hard style, while Mulroney and McNairy merrily chew their way through the scenery. Both are clearly unhinged, and the actors have a great time striking each macho pose. Monaghan gets a slightly more complex role, although Bryant is little more than an irritant in the film, doing all the wrong things for all the right reasons. At least she's a forceful woman in a sea of brutally violent tough guys.
