Stranger Things' Finn Wolfhard is out here clowning on your dad on Twitter

Once upon a time, Finn Wolfhard was just that nice, moppet-headed boy who played polite, excitable Mike Wheeler on Stranger Things. But then he picked up that blasted guitar and started palling around with dirty punks like Mac DeMarco and PUP and now he’s out here dunking on the olds. Richie Tozier would be proud.

It’s been four years since Eminem released his last album, 2013's The Marshall Mathers LP 2.

Paul F. Tompkins has penned a much more lively Mindhunter theme tune

We’ve been enjoying David Fincher and Joe Penhall’s Mindhunter a lot lately—give or take some arguments about Carrie Coon and Fringe favorite Anna Torv—but we have to admit that the show’s theme song leaves a little bit to be desired. There’s nothing fundamentally wrong with it; it’s just the kind of dull, vaguely…

Kristen Bell says a Veronica Mars miniseries will happen eventually

Hansen was promoting his new…

Vincent D'Onofrio and a new showrunner will try to get Daredevil back on track for season 3

Despite being the inaugural show in the small-screen wing of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Daredevil has been overshadowed by the far more compelling Jessica Jones and Luke Cage.

This Lady Gaga wax statue takes the “Monster” thing too literally

Tributes are hard, especially those that attempt to capture someone’s physicality rather than their aesthetic. A song-and-dance number inspired by your favorite silver-screen star tends to go over slightly better than graven images of a celebrity, lovingly crafted as they may be. We can’t fault folks for trying, but…
