What we understand so far about the new series.
Some new plot details have been announced for 'Stranger Things' season two, which comes as a relief to those who nearly died when they found out that it won't be hitting Netflix until October 2017. Everything from new characters to new monsters are hinted at ahead of the show.
What can we expect from 'Stranger Things' season 2?
As you've probably already gathered, season 2 kicks off one year after events in the first season - that is, one year after Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) disappeared into the Upside Down and Will finally returned home, albeit vomiting baby demogorgons (probably).

Millie Bobby Brown and Winona Ryder return.
Finally, it has been confirmed that we can expect another season of the much-loved Netflix original series 'Stranger Things' to arrive in the coming months, which means more incredible action from the likes of Millie Bobby Brown, Noah Schnapp and Winona Ryder. Bring on 2017!
Stranger Things returns for season 2
For those who haven't yet seen the 8-part first season of sci-fi horror 'Stranger Things', it follows the mysterious disappearance of a young boy named Will (Schnapp) and the arrival of an unusual shaven-headed girl with poweres of telekinesis, who is initially only known as Eleven (Brown). With the help of Eleven, Will's friends find out what's going on behind Will's absence, and eventually he is reunited with his relieved mother Joyce (Ryder).
We were left with one hell of a cliffhanger, however, when Eleven became trapped in the same alternate dimension that Will was in, and it seems that the horror is not over for Will himself as we see him coughing up that weird slug in his bathroom.

Is 'Heathers: The Musical' as good as the movie original?
With Idina Menzel's 'If/Then' scoring strong reviews following its opening on Broadway this week, the pressure was on Laurence O'Keefe and Kevin Murphy's Heathers to follow suit.

Jessica Chastain and Jennifer Lawrence battle over Best Actress, Denzel Washington and Daniel Day-Lewis meet over Best Actor And Anne Hathaway favorite for Best Supporting Actress. While Iceman (James Franco, Winona Ryder) and Mud (Matthew McConnaughey and Reese Witherspoon) Trailers Hit The Web.
It's awards season for the film industry, so it's no coincidence that most stories this week centre on actors and filmmakers who are up for a variety of statuettes. Last Sunday's Golden Globes are increasingly seen as a little more than a promotional opportunity for hopeful Oscar nominees, and since they have winners in both drama and musical/comedy categories, they can spread the love around more than other groups. Unlike most years, there is no movie poised to sweep the Oscars this year.
Although Jessica Chastain for Zero Dark Thirty is gaining on her, Jennifer Lawrence for Silver Linings Playbook is the front-runner for Best Actress. Facing a huge crowd of fans, she stopped to sign autographs and pose for photos on her way to David Letterman's show this week.

On discovering that his dog has died, he is devastated and will do anything to bring him back. His mother tries to offer comfort, telling Victor that Sparky will always be in his heart, but nothing she says makes him feel any better; that is, until, she says, 'If we could bring him back, we would' which triggers an idea in Victor's head - even more so after a science class at school shows how you can use electricity to stimulate muscle movement in deceased animals. He takes a trip to the cemetery and sets up a makeshift laboratory in which he attempts to rouse Sparky using various pieces of scientific equipment. When there is no movement from the dog, Victor is disappointed but, suddenly, Sparky starts moving and leaps off the table to his owner's utter delight. Victor has to hide him away in the attic of his house to avoid suspicion from his parents.

And not "fake," like some butt-kissing movie actress, but really fake. Simone (or S1m0ne, as Niccol sharply titles the film) is the perfect pixilated creation of a Microsoft-age mad scientist, who's created his flawless CGI actress specifically for floundering moviemaker Viktor Taransky (a truly entertaining Al Pacino). Viktor needs a hit badly and the lead actress on his new feature -- played by Winona Ryder, in a painfully ironic appearance -- has just stormed off his new movie due to "creative differences." Nine months later (human gestation period, if I'm not mistaken) Simone is born to take her place. And since our obsessive inventor has quickly died from an eye tumor, contracted from too much computer use(!), only Viktor knows the true secret of his new lead actress.

In the middle of a suburbs stylized to the nines, the Boggs have made a modest, any-day home for them and their two children. Peg Boggs (Dianne Weist) makes her living as an Avon lady, going door-to-door with second rate beauty products, trying to make the outside meet the (supposed) inside. She is the gentlest woman in her neighborhood by a long shot. So, when she stumbles upon poor Edward Scissorhands (Johnny Depp), a Frankenstein-like creature who has scissors instead of fingers, she feels the motherly instinct to take care of the assembled fellow.
Continue reading: Edward Scissorhands Review
Beneath the uncanny, inevitable and seemingly shrewd facade of the movie-biz farce "Simone" -- about a computer-generated actress taking Hollywood by storm because nobody knows she's not real -- lies a plot cobbled together from largely flat and uncreative moments.
The brainchild of inventive and otherworldly writer-director Andrew Niccol ("Gattaca," "The Truman Show" screenplay), who plucked the picture's concept out of the film industry's paranoid collective subconscious, "Simone" stars Al Pacino as Viktor Taransky, a washed-up and somewhat neurotic director whose last chance at making a big studio film has just walked off the set along with his petulant leading lady (Winona Ryder in a cameo).
But just as he envisions his career going off a cliff, a dying wacko computer genius and Taransky fan (Elias Koteas) brings the director a computer hard drive containing the culmination of his life's work: a program that creates a near-perfect, completely malleable, realistic simulation of beautiful girl. Called Simone (a contraction of Simulation One), in the confines of a computer she can walk, talk, flirt and cry with a single keystroke. She has a database of famous actresses' best performances to draw from for mannerisms and moods. She's utterly at Taransky's control and, of course, her fabricated "performances" can be digitally inserted into any scene of his movie, any way he chooses.
