We have an interview with Finn Wolfhard star of the Netflix original show Stranger Things. Finn talks with Andrew about the show and his role on the latest Netflix original project. Here’s a little about the show – A love letter to the ’80s supernatural classics that captivated a generation, Stranger Things is set in 1983 Indiana, where a young boy vanishes into thin air. As friends, family and local police search for answers, they are drawn into an extraordinary mystery involving top secret government experiments, terrifying supernatural forces and one very strange little girl.
Our review of Star Trek Beyond starring Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Karl Urban . Synopsis: A surprise attack in outer space forces the Enterprise to crash-land on a mysterious world. The assault came from Krall (Idris Elba), a lizard-like dictator who derives his energy by sucking the life out of his victims. Krall needs an ancient and valuable artifact that’s aboard the badly damaged starship. Left stranded in a rugged wilderness, Kirk (Chris Pine), Spock (Zachary Quinto) and the rest of the crew must now battle a deadly alien race while trying to find a way off their hostile planet.
We also talk with indie comic creator Scott Sawyer about his Kickstarter project NORTH. A new comic about a team of Canadian superheroes, was funded in 8 days. There’s still many days left in the campaign, so now instead of just 1 issue of the comic being published, the goal is to print 2 issues! Scott tells us more about this new band of heroes and what amazing stories await you if you support the kickstarter.
It was a great show!
