Rumor: Stranger Things Showrunners Leaving After Season 3 [Updated]

Rumor has it Stranger Things creators and showrunners Matt and Ross Duffer are leaving the Netflix TV series after season 3, in order to focus their efforts on other projects.

The Duffer Brothers shot to fame after the surprise smash hit of Stranger Things season 1 on Netflix in 2016. As one of the first universally acclaimed Netflix TV shows, Stranger Things rocketed its cast and creators to universal stardom.

Burnout Paradise Remastered Is Real: Trailer & Release Date

Burnout Paradise Remastered Artwork

Racing game fans have a reason to celebrate, as the beloved Burnout Paradise is getting the remaster treatment. The title, which was originally released back in 2008, wowed racers with the open streets of Paradise City, bringing some of the best racing of the generation to speed freaks alongside the Burnout franchise’s trademark crash mechanics.

It proved to be the last of the mainline Burnout games to see release, with Electronic Arts turning its attention (and the attention of developer Criterion Games) onto the Need For Speed series instead. Once Criterion was moved off the franchise, fans of the Burnout games were hopeful that another game in the property would be incoming, but things remained quiet – aside from the plentiful rumors of a Burnout Paradise Remastered that was in the works.

15 Movies Canceled During Production For Mind-Blowing Reasons

When you think of it, it’s a miracle that any movie ever gets made. So much thought, preparation, and planning goes into every single movie. From scripting to casting to production to editing, there is so much room for error every step of the way. Obviously, there are tons of features that never get to make it to the big screen because of issues along the way.

There are a million different reasons why a movie could be canceled. A lead actor they were banking on might die, natural disasters could ravage shooting locations, or the script may have called for something that pushed the envelope a bit too far. Heck, sometimes the movie is …

Black Panther: Was Killmonger The Rightful King of Wakanda?

Warning: SPOILERS for Black Panther!

In Black Panther‘s game of thrones between T’Challa and Erik Killmonger, was Killmonger the rightful king of Wakanda? Killmonger threw the hidden African nation into temporary chaos when he arrived in the country of his heritage and laid claim to the crown. Also known as N’Jadaka, Erik’s father was Prince N’Jobu, the younger brother of the late King T’Chaka, the father of T’Challa. So even though Killmonger is American by birth, as a royal blood relative, he had the right to challenge T’Challa to ritual combat according to Wakandan law.
