Season 3 of Stranger Things includes various easter eggs and callbacks. Fans may have missed 10 items on their initial viewing. 

Stranger Things has shown to be a program packed of wonderful details once again. And there are lots of fascinating background tidbits, callbacks, Easter eggs, and movie allusions (many of which are to films from the 1980s) that many viewers may have missed during their first binge of the season. And who knows what could happen? Perhaps this list will persuade viewers to revisit what has been dubbed the darkest season of Stranger Things to date. What greater incentive could there be to re-watch it?! But be cautious. Major spoilers await anybody who hasn’t finished watching this season yet. 

Phoebe Cates is a fictional character created by Phoebe Cates. 

Dustin refers to his girlfriend Suzie as “hotter than Phoebe Cates” many times throughout the program, which anybody who grew up in the 1980s knows is high praise. In the season finale, there’s an easy-to-spot cardboard cut-out of her. Karen Wheeler, Mike’s mother, makes a more subtle allusion to her involvement in Fast Times at Ridgemont High. And it’s a sequence that clearly alludes to Ms. Cates’ pool scene, which is the sole reason everybody remembers Fast Times at Ridgemont High. The same music that accompanied Cates in her classic pool scene, Moving in Stereo, plays when Karen steps out of the water to speak to Billy. Karen’s one-piece suit would still look wonderful in the twenty-first century, even if she didn’t wear a red bikini this time. 

9 Stacey’s Retaliation 

Eleven and Max are having fun in the shoe shop until El falls down in her new high heels, which causes a few females to roll their eyes. El later discovers these girls in the food court and uses her abilities to blow up an Orange Julius held by the girl with the frizzy red hair. 

This girl may have been Stacey, the girl who rudely rejected down Dustin at the Snow Ball in season two (no Neverending Story theme for her). It was well-deserved vengeance, whether it was for making Dustin weep or for her terrible haircut. 

8 Employing Proper English 

The opening scene of Season 3 in Hawkins takes place in Eleven’s bedroom, where a now adolescent Mike and Eleven are making out to Corey Hart’s Never Surrender. The first pan shot actually shows the cassette tape next to Eleven’s stereo, before moving on to the newly hormonal pair and passing by a book titled Using Good English. This is a wonderful touch, and it’s a book that most likely contributed to Eleven’s transition from “evil dudes” to “I dump your ass.” And it’s a nice notion that Hopper helped her learn English by reading this book before supper and watching Miami Vice. 

7 Hairspray Weaponized by Farrah Fawcett 

The group fools Dustin by having Eleven bring his toys to life in one of the first moments of season three. Dustin comes prepared with a bottle of Farrah Fawcett hairspray to protect himself in this Night of the Possible Toy Story Shout-out scenario. After a surprising surprise, hairspray splatters Lucas’ eyes. 

The Farrah Fawcett hairspray is the same substance Steve warned Dustin about in season two, which resulted in Dustin’s head being covered in a bird nest at the Snow Ball. Dustin continues to rock the spray even after the dance, which is great to watch. One can only hope he brought a bottle to camp. 

The Mews Bobblehead is number six. 

It’s great to see Dustin’s mother loved Mews so much that she now has a bobblehead to remember her. This orange tabby cat bobblehead may also be seen on Dustin’s mother’s dashboard when she drives him home from summer camp. 

This bobblehead is a blatant allusion to d’Artagnan’s eating of Henderson’s tabby cat in season two. Even if another cat was brought in to take her place, it’s nice to see that Mews was remembered. 

Poster #5: The Endless Summer 

A poster for The Endless Summer hangs in Max’s room. This film follows two California surfers as they traveled the globe in quest of the best waves for them and their boards. This Easter egg contributes to the development of Max’s character by demonstrating her nostalgic fondness for her native state. It might also be a personal link to her stepbrother Billy, who is shown in later episodes to be a former surfer with a promising future ahead of him if it weren’t for his violent father. 

“Gag me with a spoon,” Max says when she stumbles across Billy’s Penthouse magazines, is another California term that pops out of Max’s lips. This idiom was popularized by valley girls in the 1970s and 1980s as a way of expressing anger or contempt. 

4 The Hospital of Halloween II 

Close study reveals that the local hospital, Hawkins Memorial, has the same emblem as Haddonfield Memorial, the hospital where Laurie is transported following her meeting with Michael Myers in Halloween II. Stranger Things would be a season well worth watching if a character modeled on Michael Myers was introduced. 

3 Tag for Telephone Extensions 

Karen Wheeler answers a phone call in the kitchen in season three, then exclaims that it’s for him. Mike switches to a different phone extension, and Karen, ever the ideal spy mother, does not hang up. As long as she doesn’t cough or sneeze, she can listen to the whole phone conversation while keeping him in the dark. After hearing important gossip, 80s youngsters were experts at the quiet hang-up. Karen clearly needs more experience in this area, as she nearly immediately exposes her cover. But, after hearing Mike’s obvious falsehoods, who can blame her? 

E Pluribus Unum is a Latin phrase that means “all things are one.” 

The sixth episode’s title is a famous Latin phrase. “E Pluribus Unum” literally means “Out of many, one.” It may also be informally translated as “one among many.” The motto of the United States of America used to be E Pluribus Unum, which relates to the birth of a single country from the merger of thirteen lesser colonies. This is the United States’ historic slogan, as well as a reference to the various hosts that combine to produce Season 3’s primary monster. 

The Flayed, the countless hosts under the Mind Flayer’s control, are transported to the Steel Works, where they are melted down and fused to produce the embodiment of the monster that would confront Eleven. 

Daisy Bell No. 1 

Steve Harrington uses the music on a horse machine to find that the Russian transmission that he, Dustin, and Robin captured went out locally at the conclusion of episode two. Daisy Bell (Bicycle Built for Two), a classic 1892 song penned by Harry Dacre and used in several films and television programs over the years, is playing on the machine. 

Bowman deactivates the circuitry controlling HAL’s intellect in 2001: A Space Odyssey, which is perhaps the most well-known example. On his way out, the rogue AI softly sings the tune. This iconic scene was a nod to the first demonstration of computer voice synthesis, which took place in 1961. Daisy Bell was performed by an IBM 704 at Bell Labs in this presentation. Arthur C. Clarke, a science fiction novelist, saw the experiment and mentioned it in his 1968 book and subsequent film.

Sigourney Weaver is coming back for Avatar 2 CRAZY!

In the first Avatar, Weaver’s scientist character died, but now she’s back as the protagonists’ adopted Na’vi daughter.

We were all surprised when we heard about 17 billion years ago that Sigourney Weaver would be back for James Cameron’s Avatar sequels (even more so than with the idea of there being multiple Avatar sequels). But now that we know how Weaver is going to come back, we’re even more confused.

AVATAR

Empire magazine has said that Weaver will play a completely different character in Avatar: The Way of Water. In the first movie, she played Dr. Grace Augustine, the creator of the Human-Na’vi switcheroo Avatar Program, who died at the end. And no, it’s not a human. It’s Jake and Neytiri’s daughter, who is about to turn 16.

Weaver will play Kiri, Jake and Neytiri’s adopted daughter. It looks like we’ll meet a lot of Jake and Neytiri’s family in The Way of Water. Weaver told Empire what it was like to play a digitized blue teenager, “I think we all pretty much remember how we felt when we were that age.” “Oh, yes, I do. When I was 11, I was 5’10” or 5’11” tall. I was sure Kiri would feel uncomfortable a lot of the time. She wants to find out who she is. When Jim gave me that task, I was thrilled.

Now, adults play children all the time, especially in the world of voice acting, and at least one of the photos Empire released of Kiri makes it look like Weaver will also show up as Dr. Augustine again in some way, probably through old footage. But knowing that the Na’vi are mostly brought to life by fancy mocap rigs, it will be strange to see Weaver’s physical performance put on a teenager. Even though he is a blue alien teen with long arms and legs, he is still a teen.

The movie Avatar: The Way of Water will come out in December 2022.

Disney will show new scenes from “Avatar: The Way of Water” 

Disney started its CineEurope presentation in Barcelona today with 12 minutes of footage from July’s Marvel fourquel Thor: Love and Thunder. Throughout the show, Disney showed trailers and looks at its other upcoming movies, including four never-before-seen scenes from James Cameron’s Avatar: The Way of Water.

Before the Thor footage, Disney’s Head of Global Theatrical Distribution Tony Chambers talked about the importance of immersive storytelling and the studio’s “robust, diverse slate.” This was followed by about 60 minutes of footage that was introduced by EMEA Head of Theatrical Distribution Nick Rush and EMEA Head of Studio Marketing Lee Jury.

There were prerecorded messages from people like Marvel boss Kevin Feige, who said, “It feels like we’re just getting started, even after 14 years.” As he introduced the Love And Thunder scenes, Thor star Chris Hemsworth said he wished he was in Barcelona, where the sangria “always tastes better.”

Harrison Ford sent a video for Lucasfilm’s Indiana Jones 5, saying that it had been 13 years since the last movie and that it was “time to put on the fedora and crack the whip.”

We also saw parts of Haunted Mansion, Pixar’s Elemental and Strange World, and the ensemble Amsterdam, which was directed by David O. Russell for New Regency.

Sam Mendes sent a video about Empire Of Light by Searchlight. The director of 1917 said that after making that movie, he wrote this one during lockdown. He said it was a “extremely personal story” about music, movies, and finding love in strange places.

Rebecca Kearey, the international head of Searchlight, showed a trailer for See How They Run, which stars Sam Rockwell and Saoirse Ronan, and a teaser for The Banshees of Inisherin, which stars Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson, directed by Martin McDonagh. Searchlight also showed the first scene of Chevalier, which is about the son of an African slave and a French plantation owner who grows up to be a famous composer in France.

The next movie by Thor director Taika Waititi, Next Goal Wins, got an eight-minute sneak peek. The movie is about the American Samoa soccer team. In 2001, they lost to Australia 31-0, which was the worst loss in World Cup history. Michael Fassbender takes over as their new coach.

Disney’s show ended with a visit from Avatar producer Jon Landau, who flew from New Zealand to Barcelona to talk about the next movie in the series. He said that Avatar: The Way of Water was in the final stages of post-production and that it was important to be in Barcelona “to show our support for the exhibition community.”

Landau said that the strength of James Cameron’s scripts is that they have universal themes. “There is nothing more relatable than family,” he said before showing a message from Cameron.

Cameron from New Zealand said that the people working on Avatar were “pushing the limits even further… Every shot is made for the biggest screen and best resolution that can be achieved… I think this is what people want.” He also said, “Our business is not going away.”

Sigourney Weaver Reveals Her Unconventional Role in ‘Avatar: The Way of Water’

Weaver will portray Jake and Neytiri’s adoptive child.

Many pondered what type of role Sigourney Weaver would have in the sequel to James Cameron’s Avatar after the death of her character, Dr. Grace Augustine, who was the leader of the Avatar Program in the previous film. Finally, in an Empire Magazine exclusive, Weaver shared insights about the role she will portray in Avatar: The Way of Water, as well as a new photograph from the film.

Weaver announced to Empire Magazine that she would play Kiri, the adoptive daughter of Jake Sully (Sam Worthington) and Neytiri (Zoe Saldaa), in the film. “I believe we all remember what we were experiencing as teens,” Weaver told Empire Magazine exclusively. “I most definitely do. When I was 11, I was 5′ 10″ or 5′ 11″. I had a strong feeling Kiri would be uncomfortable a lot of the time. She’s trying to figure out who she is. Jim’s assignment of that task excited me.”

A fresh picture, which adds to the character’s mystery, has also been unveiled, hinting at some type of link that Kiri would have with Grace. Kiri is seen inside a lab, staring at a monitor with a recording of Grace on it. Despite not being biologically connected to Jake and Neytiri, Kiri seems to have human traits that other Na’vi do not have, such as five digits and eyebrows, adding to the character’s mystery.

Empire exclusive

With an obvious link between the two, as well as both characters being performed by the same actor, viewers can only guess on how significant Kiri’s involvement will be in the plot. The character will also appear on a subscriber-exclusive cover of Empire Magazine, which depicts her swimming underwater appreciating Pandora’s aquatic life, as shown in the first teaser.

Weaver and Cameron will work together again for Avatar: The Way of Water, having previously played Ellen Ripley in Aliens and Grace in the first Avatar film. Along with Weaver, Stephen Lang will reprise his role as Colonel Miles Quaritch, the man responsible for Grace’s death, in the sequel. Quaritch, like Weaver’s character, perished in the first film, fueling curiosity regarding his participation in Avatar: The Way of Water. While the roles of both actors remain unknown, fan speculation may continue until the highly anticipated film is released later this year.

On December 16, Avatar: The Way of Water will be released exclusively in cinemas.
