Stranger Things behind the scene companion book released + new details about S3 emerge

• Tuesday saw the release of an official behind the scenes companion for the show, Stranger Things: The World Turned Upside Down.

• Includes interviews with the cast and crew, plenty of amazing behind the scenes photos and concept art, and new details about season 3.

• The character profiles are getting a mixed reaction from fans. They appear to have retconned the ages and grades of some of the teens, and they've gotten the D&D classes for the four boys wrong.

• The book closes on a look at season 3 of the show.

• The Duffers cite John Carpenter's The Thing as an inspiration for this season, and also note that they were influenced by David Cronenberg and George Romero. (we all knew that Dawn of the Dead homage was coming lol)

• The summer setting will give the show a "fun and joy[ful]" aesthetic, though it will be tinged with dread and promise that season 3 will be scarier than the first two seasons.

• They talk a lot about the new mall setting, placing a lot of emphasis on how they took over and retrofitted two floors of an already existing mall to get that perfect '80s mall' look.

• The Duffers and producer Shawn Levy all talk about how they're trying to acknowledge that their young stars, "are getting older and crafting story lines that reflect that new maturity." They refer to it as the "Harry Potter model."

Hugh Jackman has been busy promoting his new film The Front Runner in which he plays Colorado Senator Gary Hart. Hart was the Democratic presidential nominee in 1988 and was the favorite to win-- until a sex scandal derailed his campaign. Ironically, he is friends with Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner. The irconic part needn't be explained. When asked about the 15 year friendship, Jackman stated that they didn't talk about politics.


So ONTD, do you and your friends talk about politics? Would you unfriend someone with different political opinions? Has Hugh Jackman become a problematic fave?

Trailer for Romantic Drama Where Cole Sprouse and Haley Lu Richardson Have Cystic Fibrosis

Stella Grant is every bit a seventeen-year-old: she’s attached to her laptop and loves her best friends. But unlike most teenagers, she spends much of her time living in a hospital as a cystic fibrosis patient. Her life is full of routines, boundaries and self-control -- all of which is put to the test when she meets an impossibly charming fellow CF patient named Will Newman.

There’s an instant flirtation, though restrictions dictate that they must maintain a safe distance between them. As their connection intensifies, so does the temptation to throw the rules out the window and embrace that attraction. Further complicating matters is Will’s potentially dangerous rebellion against his ongoing medical treatment. Stella gradually inspires Will to live life to the fullest, but can she ultimately save the person she loves when even a single touch is off limits?

Massive Attack will be going on tour early next year to celebrate the 20th anniversary (21st technically) of the their landmark "Mezzanine" album.
They will be playing the entire album in FULL, and be joined Cocteau Twins' Liz Fraser (she lent her voice to 3 of the albums tracks: Teardrop, Black Milk, and Group Four), as well as other collaborators to be announced (it's a given Horace Andy will be there, voice of Angel, Man Next Door, and Exchange).

ONTD, what's your fav Massive Attack album? Mezzanine is flawless and warm, but I love the cold and bleakness of 100th Window. Two of my fav albums ever!

A Discovery of Witches Finale Thread & Season 2 + 3 Renewal Announcement

Start with the big news: A Discovery of Witches has been renewed for its next two seasons.

The press announcement surrounding it has been slightly unclear, but it sounds like they plan to do one season per book -- which means that it'll all be wrapped up by Season 3.

Originally there was some suggestion the show might go for 5 seasons in total, but given the uneven narrative of the last two books, I'm more than happy to have the producers and screenwriters clean up that storyline and give us something a little more fast-paced and coherent.

Now on to the finale!

People Called Rebel Wilson Out on Twitter After She Claimed She's the First Plus-Size Rom-Com Lead

Rebel Wilson is promoting her Valentine's Day 2019 movie 'Isn't It Romantic', with Liam Hemsworth as her love interest. 
She made the proclamation, "I’m proud to be the first-ever plus-sized girl to be the star of a romantic comedy."
Well she isn't the first plus-size woman to be the star of a romantic comedy.
Just because fat women are underrepresented doesn't mean they don't exist at all. 
Queen Latifah has indeed starred in numerous rom-coms, from the charming 2006 hit 'Last Holiday' alongside LL Cool J to 2010's 'Just Wright' with Common. 
Rebel Wilson's comment follows a harmful pattern of white people erasing black people.
It's important to recognize the plus-size trailblazers who helped create the more open, inclusive atmosphere we have now.

Madeleine Mantock gets real about Charmed

-She was partially drawn to the show because she would finally be able to take part in the action instead of playing the mother figure or be the regular character.

-Charmed (2018) is a mirror of what life is like in 2018 just as OG Charmed reflected what life was like in the 90s. They are a different show with a new take on the history from the OG. Many skeptical fans have since messaged her about how much they are enjoying the reboot.

-They have started to explore different cultures in the show and she wants to explore even more! She is excited that the sisters are from so many different cultures but she is not a fan of the term "Women of Color"

-The show only has 1 straight white male writer and they do in fact have a latin writer who is a witch (she is not sure if he refers to himself as wiccan). It is very exciting and refreshing to have such a big female presence bts,

-Not sure where the whole "Latina sisters" came from as the show was not casting for latina specific actresses. The character breakdowns infact did not have a race attached to them and she is not into taking roles from actresses. She has never claimed to be latina though people have looked at her and assumed that she was. She does believe that they probably could have done a better job of clearing up that misconception once it was brought to their attention.

-Charmed airs Sundays on TheCW at 9pm.

SVU Promo for 20x08: Hell's Kitchen (No, Seriously)

Next week on SVU, a chef sexually assaults several of his employees, and he throws stuff at people, and then he loudly exclaims he's innocent. What else is new?


ONTD, did you watch last nights SVU? Were you, unlike Benson, totally unsurprised by the concept of family annihilators, because you have actually watched SVU before? Was this episode a lot better when Dylan Walsh was involved 13 years ago? But was Sasha Alexander also pretty awesome tbh? Wait, I can answer that, because, for once, I actually watched the episode in time for the post! Just in time for the Benson/Rollins hug no one asked for! Feminist icons tbh! Barba who?
