Stranger Things, which debuted on Netflix in 2016, has quickly become one of the most popular and binge-worthy shows on the site. The show’s concentration on extraterrestrial creatures and faultless tribute to 80s cultural vibes helped it gain a loyal following over time. The series follows citizens of Hawkins, Indiana, as they discover government conspiracies and hidden labs while battling otherworldly creatures that want to wipe out the town’s population.

This captivating sci-fi thriller, created by the Duffer Brothers, got a great deal of praise after its impactful first season, with reviewers and fans alike complimenting its characterisation, soundtrack, directing, pace, tone, and innovation. The series’ captivating narrative has made it a fan favorite among millions of fans all around the globe.

On May 27, the award-winning series will release Volume One of its fourth season. We’re looking back at the several stand-out episodes that helped define the show’s appeal ahead of its release. Here are our recommendations for the finest Stranger Things episodes thus far.

Season 2, Episode 2: “Trick or Treat, Freak”

Stranger Things’ science fiction appeal is greatly emphasized, with frightening aspects thrown in for good measure. As a result, the Stranger Things Halloween episode serves as a reminder to viewers of why the program is such a smash sensation. This holiday episode also represents a key turning point for Will Byers in season two, with rotting pumpkins and the main gang dressed up as Ghostbusters characters. It also gives viewers a peek of Eleven’s present location and Nancy’s grieving process after Barb’s death.

Season 2, Episode 6 of “The Spy”

Despite the absence of Eleven in this episode, the rest of the ensemble does an excellent job of bringing “The Spy” to life. Steve Harrington’s character journey reaches a climax in this episode, as he valiantly defends the youngsters from threatening Demodogs. Will, whose mind has been taken over by the Mind Flayer, is also played by Noah Schnapp, who gives an outstanding performance. “The Spy” brilliantly shows the perils that surround Hawkins’ people while also delving into Will’s unjustified suffering.

Season 3, Episode 4: “The Sauna Test”

Season three of Stranger Things sees the horrific creature symbolically dig its fangs into Max’s older step-brother Billy, similar to how the Head Flayer invaded Will’s mind. As a consequence, Dacre Montgomery offers a spectacular performance as a possessed Billy, shining brightly in the aftermath of Eleven and the group’s attempts to lock him up in the communal pool’s sauna. In “The Sauna Test,” Hopper and Joyce work together to uncover Mayor Kline’s covert objectives. The whole third season is fantastic, but this episode exemplifies how great the show’s ensemble is.

Season 1, Episode 3: “Holly, Jolly”

“Holly, Jolly,” perhaps Stranger Things’ most important episode, was the first to expose the world to Joyce’s characteristic Christmas-inspired lights, which she uses to communicate with Will while he’s trapped in the Upside Down. Hopper also starts looking into the bizarre reality of Hawkins Lab, gradually discovering evidence that the government carried out unlawful experiments and devastated a woman’s life. Although “Holly Jolly” is just the third episode of the series, it helps to set the tone for the turmoil and unexpected developments to follow.

6. “The Monster” – Episode 6 of Season 1

Stranger Things’ first season largely lay the basis for the rest of the series. Mike, Dustin, and Eleven had a famous moment in “The Monster,” in which Eleven successfully defends the duo from their relentless bullies. The legendary scene demonstrated Eleven’s willingness to go to great lengths to defend her closest companions. In this episode, Joyce and Hopper search down Eleven’s biological mother, which leads to the discovery of Eleven’s telekinetic abilities.

Season 2, Episode 8: “The Mind Flayer”

Season two’s penultimate episode is still considered one of the greatest in the series. When Mike, Joyce, Hopper, Will, and Bob are trapped in Hawkins Lab and are being pursued by a pack of voracious Demodogs, tensions are at an all-time high. In this episode, Joyce’s lover Bob unwittingly sacrifices himself for the rest of the gang, resulting in a devastating character death. Mike, Jonathan, and Joyce struggle frantically to release Will from the Mind Flayer in “The Mind Flayer,” which also sets up a romantic reunion between Mike and Eleven for the first time in season two.

4. Season 1, Episode 1 of “The Vanishing of Will Byers”

The interesting sci-fi series’ debut episode lay the basis for the remainder of the series. During a relentless game of Dungeons & Dragons in Mike’s basement, the first episode introduces the fan-favorite gang of friends— Will, Mike, Dustin, and Lucas. Will Byers vanishes minutes into the episode, causing alarm across the community. This episode gave fans their first look of Eleven, before knowing anything about her past or even her name. “The Vanishing of Will Byers” brilliantly captures the thrill of the show’s narrative while also showcasing the show’s cherished characters. This superb formula contributed to the show’s success in attracting a large audience.

3. Season 1, Episode 8 of “The Upside Down”

Season one’s final episode brought all of the season’s secret hypotheses and painful occurrences to a head. Joyce and Hopper, despite all obstacles, journey into the Upside Down on a quest to save Will from the Demogorgon in “The Upside Down.” Nancy and Jonathan, on the other hand, are busy devising their own set of traps to catch the Demogorgon. When Steve comes to rescue the day, he gets his first big heroic moment, enabling the episode to give a bittersweet conclusion while also laying the groundwork for the next season.

Season 3, Episode 8: “The Battle of Starcourt”

Season three’s climax is so engrossing and dramatic that it nearly doesn’t seem real. The 90-minute episode is gripping from beginning to end, with plenty of heart-stopping moments that fans are still talking about. The main protagonists, who spent most of the season separated into various factions, ultimately regroup in “The Battle of Starcourt” to take down the Mind Flayer. The episode has a number of notable scenes, the most remembered of which being Billy’s terrible death. And that Neverending Story scenario will be remembered for a long time.

Season 2, Episode 9 of “The Gate”

“The Gate” evokes an inexplicable sense of nostalgia for a bygone era, as well as the pleasant sensation of reunion with old acquaintances. After spending the whole season apart, Eleven reunites with Mike and the rest of the group in “The Gate.” While Joyce, Jonathan, and Nancy labor feverishly to liberate Will’s mind and body from the Mind Flayer, Hopper and Eleven devise a method to block the Upside Down door in Hawkins Lab. This episode is a great combination of real emotive moments and adrenaline-pumping action situations. It’s still a must-see for fans of Stranger Things.

Ms. Marvel will tell the story of comic heroine Kamala Khan’s heroic origins later this year, and a since-deleted Twitter message found in the Wayback Machine archive has hinted to a second season.

On Friday, user Patrick Favo shared two photographs of a glass with the six-episode show’s logo, anchored by the words “wrap” and “present.” “Season 1” is written under the emblem on the glass, but no news regarding future episodes airing on Disney Plus has been verified as of the time this report was posted. Instead, Khan actor Iman Vellani has announced that she will appear in Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel sequel The Marvels, and will be dressed in a new version of her outfit.

Favo has yet to respond to the material that was removed. Khan will be the first Muslim superhero in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In the comics, she is a fan of Brie Larson’s New Jersey hero, and in her escapades, she often acts as a neighborhood vigilante comparable to Peter Parker’s Spider-Man. Though, after her 2022 adventure, she will undoubtedly gain the attention of her idol in 2023, and the show may end up connecting to Spider-adventure Man’s in which he battled Jake Gyllenhaal’s Mysterio, as drones resembling those used throughout the film, most notably at its climax, have been spotted on the set.


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.


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.
