Stranger Things: 10 Things You Didn't Notice About The Scoop Troop

Stranger Things, created by Ross and Matt Duffer, premiered in 2016. It quickly became one of Netflix’s biggest hit shows. It follows the story of Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) as she and her friends grapple with her supernatural abilities and the terror it unleashes. Season three of Stranger Things was one of their best seasons so far, and a lot of that can be attributed to the addition of the Scoop Troop.

While it is comprised of main characters, the fact that it was a solid, separate group, allowed the show to bring the different storylines together. Featuring Steve (Joe Keery), Dustin (Gaten Matarazzo), Erica (Priah Ferguson), and new character Robin (Maya Hawke), the group is important in uncovering the plot to reopen the interdimensional rift leading to the Upside Down. Given their centrality to this season,

Toronto Film Review: ‘Human Capital’

  • Variety
Toronto Film Review: ‘Human Capital’
“Human Capital” has returned home in a sense, in that American novelist Stephen Amidon’s 2004 book was made into a very well-received Italian film by Paolo Virzi in 2013, and now Marc Meyers’ U.S. feature is based on both prior incarnations. There’s no reason it shouldn’t work again in what is, after all, its original setting. Yet as with the recent stateside do-overs of “After the Wedding” and “Gloria,” this is another remake probably best enjoyed by those unfamiliar with its predecessor, which remains more incisive and memorable. This “Capital” succeeds as a well-acted crisscrosser of a melodrama between two awkwardly entangled families in upstate New York. Where it falls well short is in attaining the level of biting social commentary Virzi drew from the same material.

The first thing we see here is a restaurant worker bicycling home from work, only to be sideswiped by an SUV

Boots Riley Calls Out Tarantino’s ‘Hollywood’ for Not Depicting Manson Family as White Supremacists

[Editor’s note: Boots Riley’s exclusive follow-up statement to IndieWire has been added to the bottom of the post]

“Sorry to Bother You” writer-director Boots Riley returned to Twitter after a nearly three-month hiatus to share a criticism he has with Quentin Tarantino’s depiction of the Manson Family cult members in “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.” Actors such as Dakota Fanning, Austin Butler, Maya Hawke, and Lena Dunham star in the film as Manson followers, many of which are based on real people. Riley took issue with Tarantino’s script for depicting the cult members as hippies with liberal beliefs and not at all dealing with their racism and right-wing views.

The Manson Family were overt white supremacists who tried to start a race war with the goal of killing black folks,” Riley wrote to his followers. “They weren’t ‘hippies’ spouting left critiques of media. They were rightwingers. This fact flips Tarantino’s allegory on its head.

Bruce Lee’s daughter tells Quentin Tarantino to “shut up” about her father’s portrayal in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood

Shannon Lee, the daughter of Bruce Lee, has told Quentin Tarantino to “shut up” or apologise for her father’s portrayal in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.

Quentin Tarantino films are often controversial but not many would have guessed the major talk about Once Upon a Time in Hollywood would be its depiction of icon Bruce Lee. In the film, Lee is portrayed as rather arrogant and unlikeable and this has rubbed some people the wrong way, including Lee’s daughter Shannon.

Tarantino has declined to apologise, saying that he felt the portrayal of Lee was accurate. Now, Variety has spoken to Shannon Lee about how Tarantino could fix the issue and she has had some strong words for the legendary director in response:

“He could shut up about it. That would be really nice. Or he could apologize or he could say, ‘I don’t really know what Bruce Lee was like.

Let's All "Ooh" and "Aah" Over the Amazing Cast of the Little Women Remake Together

  • Popsugar
The latest film adaptation of Louisa May Alcott's Little Women hails from Oscar-nominated director Greta Gerwig, and she's amassed one hell of a cast. Like in Alcott's 1868 classic, the new film follows four sisters - Amy, Jo, Beth, and Meg - who live with their mother in Massachusetts during the Civil War era. Since their funds have dwindled and their father is away at war, the girls come of age together while experiencing life's highs and lows.

The novel has been adapted for film six times, as well as having inspired TV musicals, plays, and even operas. Most recently it was turned into a PBS miniseries starring Stranger Things actress Maya Hawke as Jo, as well as Kathryn Newton, Dylan Baker, and Willa Fitzgerald. Gerwig's film, however, is by far the most A-list cast assembled in a while, so check out who's on board the project, ahead!

Saoirse Ronan and Timothée Chalamet Come of Age in the Little Women Trailer
Fresh off of her Oscar-nominated directorial debut, Lady Bird, Greta Gerwig has dusted off a true favorite: a new adaptation of Louisa May Alcott's Little Women. Judging from the first trailer for the film, due out on Christmas Day, we're in for an instant classic.

Just as in the seminal 1868 novel, the film follows four sisters - Amy, Jo, Beth, and Meg - who live with their mother, Marmee March (Laura Dern), in Massachusetts during the Civil War era, played by Florence Pugh, Saoirse Ronan, Eliza Scanlen, and Emma Watson, respectively. Since their funds have dwindled and their father is away at war, the girls come of age together while experiencing life's highs and lows - love and loss, success and failure, birth and death.

Quentin Tarantino defends his depiction of Bruce Lee in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood

Quentin Tarantino has defended his portrayal of Bruce Lee in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, after Shannon Lee, Lee’s daughter, criticised the depiction of her father calling it “disheartening” and “uncomfortable” as the martial arts icon “comes across as an arrogant asshole.”

In a recent report from The Wrap, a new video shows the director speaking to reporters in Moscow, where he claims his portrayal of Lee is fair.

“Bruce Lee was kind of an arrogant guy,” Tarantino said. “The way he was talking, I didn’t just make a lot of that up. I heard him say things like that to that effect.”

During the film, Brad Pitt’s stuntman character, Cliff Booth, trades insults with Bruce Lee, played by Mike Moh. However, at one point, Lee states he could beat Muhammad Ali. This exchange ends up in a two-out-of-three rounds fight which concludes in a stalemate.

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood actor Mike Moh weighs in on Bruce Lee controversy

Earlier this month, Bruce Lee’s daughter Shannon Lee spoke of her unhappiness over her father’s portrayal in Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, stating that the martial arts icon “comes across as an arrogant asshole” during his scenes in the film, which include a fight scene with Brad Pitt’s character Cliff Booth that ultimately ends up in a stalemate.

It’s previously been revealed that Tarantino originally wanted Cliff to come out on top in the fight, only for several people – including Pitt – to voice their concerns and convince Tarantino to change things up. Nevertheless, these changes weren’t enough to quell the controversy completely, and now actor Mike Moh, who portrays Lee in the movie, has offered his thoughts on the situation during an interview with Birth Movies Death.

Quentin Tarantino says his tenth film will feel “epilogue-y”

At a recent press conference for Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, Quentin Tarantino has stated his 10th and possibly final film is going to feel “epilogue-y.”

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Tarantino says his final movie, whatever it may be, will feel like an ending.

“If you think about the idea of all the movies telling one story and each film is like a train boxcar connected to each other, this one would sort of be the big show-stopping climax of it all,” said Tarantino. “And I could imagine that the 10th one would be a little more epilogue-y.”

Tarantino has previously confirmed that he plans to make only 10 movies and has one more to make as Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is the ninth film he has directed. However, the director is working on an R-Rated Star Trek that will feel like a “Pulp Fiction in space

Whoa: Robin and Steve Started Dating in the Original Script For Stranger Things Season 3

  • Popsugar
While the most thrilling moments in Stranger Things are usually the big showdowns between Eleven and the latest, murderous creepy-crawly to ooze out of the Upside Down, the core of the series is unquestionably the bonds that form between the large cast of characters. While the friendship between the four boys is a fan favorite, as well as Eleven and Max's new Bff status, season three introduces a new pair to root for: Steve and Robin.

Warning: Spoilers for Stranger Things season three ahead!

Initially, it seemed like the Scoops Ahoy coworkers were destined for romance. Robin (played by Maya Hawke) is the ridiculously smart, wisecracking foil to Steve's (Joe Keery) goofy "cool guy" facade and has no problem putting him in his place. But when Dustin returns home from science camp and reunites with his babysitter older pal, Robin quickly gets pulled into the danger that is ever present

Stranger Things Season 3 Originally Had Robin Fall In Love With Steve

There were a lot of emotional twists and turns jam-packed into the third season of Stranger Things, but arguably none more delightful than Maya Hawke’s Robin coming out as a lesbian. It’s a shocking reveal that few saw coming, especially Steve Harrington (Joe Keery), who thanks to a misunderstanding thought she had a crush on him. Well, turns out the Duffer Brothers actually did intend for the two characters to develop a romantic interest with each other, but this slowly changed as production ensued.

According to a new report in the Wall Street Journal, Robin’s sexual orientation was a late addition to the series that was actually suggested by Hawke herself. Though the Duffers always intended for Steve to fall for his Russian-translating Scoops Ahoy co-worker, it became clear she was headed in a different direction once filming began:

Cole Sprouse, Joey King, H.E.R. and More Young Stars Sound Off on Social Media
Social media has transformed showbiz, making it easier for young performers to express themselves, connect with fans and even get their big break.

A strong social media presence can even be used as leverage during the casting process.

But what do performers think about it? Variety surveyed those highlighted in this year’s Young Hollywood issue and got a wide array of responses: While some are pro-social media, others expressed deep ambivalence about its impact on society at large and the industry in particular. Cover star Cole Sprouse, who got his start on the Disney Channel with his brother Dylan and now stars in “Riverdale,” was especially passionate about the dangers of social media for younger actors, for instance, while “The Act” star Joey King was far more upbeat about it.

Here are some of the reactions:

‘Stranger Things’ Star Maya Hawke Reveals Original Romantic Fate of Robin and Steve

‘Stranger Things’ Star Maya Hawke Reveals Original Romantic Fate of Robin and Steve
Editor’s note: This story contains spoilers for Season 3 of “Stranger Things.”

Throughout Season Three, fans of Netflix’s “Stranger Things” surely speculated that dream team Robin and Steve (a.k.a. “The Hair”) were going to become an item. But the fact that this turned out to be false says something deeper about how we look at relationships in film and TV. The slow-burning, will-they-or-won’t-they onscreen coupling of Robin and Steve in “Stranger Things” has helped to redefine standards for heteronormative pairings on television.

According to Maya Hawke, who stars as Robin, her character’s coming-out story was not originally part of the script. “Throughout filming, we started to feel like she and [Steve] shouldn’t get together, and that she’s gay. Even when I go back and watch earlier episodes, it just seems like the most obvious decision ever,” she said. Viewers expecting to see that just
