‘Stranger Things’ Drops Trailer for Season 3

Hold your breath and grab your nearest box of eggos. Netflix has dropped the trailer for Season 3 of Stranger Things (finally!) and this season looks even more exciting than the second. Featuring the return of all the actors from the previous season, including Winona Ryder, David Harbour, Finn Wolfhard, Millie Bobby Brown, Gaten Matazarro, Caleb MacLaughlin, Charlie Heaton, Sadie Sink, and Dacre Montgomery. A new addition to the cast is actress Maya Hawke, who made her screen debut in the BBC 2017 adaptation of Little Women. She will be playing a new character who works at the town’s mall, which looks to be a centerpiece for the season.

Highlights from the trailer include the characters dealing with something more horrible than any demogorgon: puberty! Yes, it seems this season will be about growing from kids into teenagers in this season and dealing with the pressures of growing into adulthood. The kids, from Eleven to Mike to Max, all looking to be handling these confusions with appropriate teenage angst and it looks to add even more drama to the circle of friends. Of course, not all threats are grounded in reality, and besides the themes of maturity, the monsters are coming back in full force as well. Glimpses of a terrifying new beast are seen near the end of the trailer, a grisly thing pulsating with tentacles and teeth. Not to mention, the whole thing is set to the chaos of July 4th, with images of fireworks and celebrations littered throughout the trailer.

We look forward to seeing the continued adventures of the Stranger Things crew this summer. The new season drops on July 4th and should prove for a binge-worthy time.

Who Will Star Greta Gerwig’s ‘Little Women,’ Emma Watson or Emma Stone?

Both are amazing actresses, but there’s only one will star in the latest cinematic version of Louisa May Alcott’s class Little Women, directed by Greta Gerwig.

 

 

According to Bollywoodlife, Emma Watson is in talks with director Greta Gerwig and the team to join in the production of Little Women, replacing  Emma Stone who, according to Variety, is unable to commit to Little Women due to her promotional tour for The Favourite.

The new production of Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women has become a hot issue since the news was released. There are three main reasons it is generating so much talk:

 

  1. Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women is an American classic and a work of feminist consciousness. The story revolves around four sisters living in New England during the Civil War and how they embody love, independence, and caring at this troubled time. It has been adapted into films and TV series many times.
  2. Greta Gerwig, the director of the film, made Lady Bird (2017) which received several nominations in 90th Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actress, and Best Supporting Actress.
  3. The cast is amazing! It includes Meryl Streep, Laura Dern, Saoirse Ronan, Timothee Chalamet, Florence Pugh, as well as either Stone or Watson.

Who will star in the movie, do you think?

 

 

Well, no matter who ends up taking the role (I’m a big fan of the two!), I’m excited about the debut. The resource mentioned that the Little Women production is expected to start next month and the roles are still being worked out, according to Bollywoodlife.

Greta Gerwig Possibly Directing Star-Studded ‘Little Women’

Reboots seems to be the thing in the last couple years; everyone wants to take something old and make it new. And, of course, a little better. This time around it’s the classic adaptation, Little Women. Not only are we excited to see a fresh take on this story, but the cast is looking better and better.

Variety confirmed that Greta Gerwig, most recently nominated for an Oscar for her role in Lady Bird, is looking to direct the upcoming film based on Louisa May Alcott’s novel. Columbia Pictures is in charge of this remake and it’s said that stars like Meryl Streep, Timothee Chalamet, Saoirse Ronan, Emma Stone, as well as Florence Pugh are in talks to take on big roles.

 

Adaptations

Although the cast is mostly up in the air, the team will be testing out multiple actresses opposite Emma Stone within the next week. With a team of successful producers and directors, Columbia is hoping to set this film apart from the 1994 film adaptation along with the BBC miniseries that aired just last year.

 

We have a feeling this ensemble may be a sure deal as they’re all on their way to wrapping up their current film shoots and projects. We’d love to see Gerwig, Ronan, and Chalamet come together again since their fantastic performances in Lady Bird.

 

Stay tuned for this one because we have a feeling this adaptation is going to be epic.
