Dragons, robots, queens and teens faced off in this category this year, with new series “The Crown,” “Stranger Things,” and “Westworld” nominated alongside veterans “Downton Abbey” and “Game of Thrones.” This was notably “Downton Abbey’s” last year of eligibility for the SAGs, which had previously won this category three times.

‘Stranger Things’ Renewed at Netflix, Season 2 to Premiere in 2017
In a not-so-strange turn of events, Netflix has renewed breakout hit “Stranger Things” for a second season, Variety has learned.

Season 2 will debut in 2017 and will consist of 9 episodes, in comparison to the first season that spanned 8 episodes.

The news comes hardly as a surprise, as the supernatural drama has become arguably the buzziest series of the summer. Insiders tell Variety that work on the second season has already been underway for quite some time.

The Duffer Brothers will return as writers for the second season and will executive produce with Shawn Levy and Dan Cohen once again. 21 Laps Entertainment produces “Stranger Things.”

The other mother might be the most fascinating character in 'Stranger Things'

  • Hitfix
Stranger Things has been the surprise hit of the summer. While movie studios mostly failed to draw audiences to their blockbuster tentpoles, an off-beat original love story to all things Amblin Entertainment took over the conversation. Stranger Things may focus on the coming-of-age of four suburban boys, but they are surrounded by some seriously fascinating women. Yet while everyone is waxing poetic about Barb (Shannon Purser), celebrating Winona Ryder’s fantastic performance, and writing praise about Nancy (Natalia Dyer) and Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown), someone is getting lost in the shuffle. We need to talk about Karen Wheeler. Played by the amazing Cara Buono, Karen Wheeler fascinates me. Feeling instantly familiar to anyone who grew up in the suburban sprawl of the 1980s, Mrs. Wheeler is viewed through the lens of her children. A foil for Ryder’s frazzled Joyce Byers, Karen represents the matriarch of a picture-perfect family. She

Watch: Tim Matheson as Reagan in Nat Geo's 'Killing Reagan' Trailer

"Last time I checked, I am in control here." We don't usually cover TV trailers, but this one seems like it's worth making an exception for. Killing Reagan is a feature film for the National Geographic Channel made by filmmaker Rod Lurie. It's an adaptation of the book of the same name retelling the events of the assassination attempt on President Ronald Reagan in March of 1981. Actor Tim Matheson plays Reagan, Cynthia Nixon plays his wife Nancy, and the cast includes Joe Chrest, Joel Murray, Gary Weeks, and Kyle S. More as John Hinckley Jr, who tried to shoot Reagan while at the Washington Hilton Hotel in Washington, D.C. in an attempt to impress actress Jodie Foster. Even though this is technically a TV movie, it looks like it has some strong performances in it, and it might be worth catching when it airs. Take a look. Here's the

Matthew McConaughey goes the period piece route in “Free State of Jones”

It’s been interesting watching Matthew McConaughey make project decisions after winning his Academy Award. He has gone big with epics like Interstellar and gone small with the still unreleased Sea of Trees, but this week he’s trying something new. Basically, he’s attempting to bring back the Civil War film with Free State of Jones. This type of movie is rarely done right and usually is super dry, so it’s a tall order, but starring one of our most exciting actors right now, there’s a chance, right? Well, this turns out to be a total bore, plodding and sometimes strangely tone deaf to the racial dynamics on display. The saving grace is McConaughey though, even if you can’t quite see what he saw in this material. There’s moments of entertainment and righteous indignation, but too often it’s just a poorly thought out history lesson.

Steven Soderbergh Month: ‘King of the Hill’ resounds with historical empathy

  • SoundOnSight
When a filmmaker creates a period piece, the audience will expect certain details to be highlighted as an effort of world-building and cinematic magic. They are commonly referred to as costume dramas, a display of a large amount of money pumped into costume and set design to amaze modern audiences in their plight for historicity. With The Great Gatsby, Baz Luhrmann was able to milk our infatuation to the point that several men’s fashion designers crafted clothing lines around the film. There are anywhere from one to three big pictures like this each year that will flaunt their stars in period-perfect garb, take home their Best Picture Oscar, and fall into obscurity. What may rescue many of these films is their ability to not simply match the look of the past, but its feeling, the atmosphere of the times that helps audiences relate to characters long dead and presented in unimaginable circumstances.
