Porn Site Offers to Produce ‘Sense8’ Season 3 After Netflix Cancellation

26 minutes ago

“Sense8” fans could have an unlikely savior following Netflix’s plans to cancel the Wachowskis’ drama series after two seasons. Porn site xHamster posted an open letter to series co-creators Lana and Lily Wachowski on Wednesday, offering to produce a third season of the show. Netflix announced in June that it will run a two-hour special in 2018 to serve as the finale for “Sense8,” which has earned praise for its strong Lgbtq characters. “We’re not talking about a parody, or something less than, but an actual revival of the series,” xHamster vice president Alex Hawkins wrote. “We know that a series about polymorphous perversity. »

The Daily Stormer Founder Claims They’re Just ‘Ironic Nazis,’ Not Real Neo-Nazis

1 hour ago

Even though The Daily Stormer website carries tabs for the “Jewish problem” and “race wars” and features stories calling black people “apes,” founder Andrew Anglin insists he shouldn’t be labeled a real neo-Nazi. “We are not neo-Nazis — we are ironic Nazis,” Anglin told TheWrap via email, even as he has continued to espouse extreme views on race and religion and struggled to secure an online host for his site since helping to organize last weekend’s deadly “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Virginia. “ adopted the image of the Third Reich not because we necessarily want to re-create that exact. »

How ‘Lip Sync Battle’ Ep Casey Patterson Gives Viral Sensation a Shelf Life

1 hour ago

Lip Sync Battle” keeps on rocking, recently setting a Spike Network ratings record. Executive producer and co-creator Casey Patterson says it’s the very nature of the audio-dubbed beast that makes it so successful. “It’s a show you want to watch with other people, and there’s something very modern about that,” Patterson told TheWrap of the series, nominated for Best Structured Reality Program. Like all the reality-show categories, structured reality tends to see the same shows year after year: “Shark Tank,” “Antiques Roadshow” and “Diners, Drive-ins and Dives” are three constants in a category that pretty much defines apples and oranges. »

Taylor Swift’s Social-Media Blank-Out Sparks New-Release Hysteria Among Fans

2 hours ago

Taylor Swift is drawing a blank on social media — and depending on which Swiftie you ask, it’s either a cause for concern or a reason to celebrate. Swifties rushed en masse to Twitter on Friday to register their thoughts after finding that the “Shake it Off” singer’s social-media accounts were bereft of posts, and that Swift’s official website offered only a black screen. There was some panic, yes — but also hope that this signaled the impending emergence of new material from the singer.

‘Stranger Things’ Star Millie Bobby Brown on Winning Over Her Biggest Critic

2 hours ago

This story on Millie Bobby Brown of “Stranger Things” first appeared in the Down to the Wire issue of TheWrap’s Emmy magazine. “Stranger Things” arrived on Netflix in July of 2016, at a time when every new show is streamed and binged in a weekend and it’s hard for anything to stick in the pop-culture consciousness. Created by the Duffer brothers, Matt and Ross, the show initially had little media attention and not much star power. But simply out of curiosity, people clicked and discovered a richly imagined, funny, creepy and classical sci-fi TV show. Like the ’80s movies it resembles, »

Do I Really Need Special Glasses to Watch the Eclipse?

2 hours ago

On Monday, a total solar eclipse will be visible in the United States, and if you’re planning on catching a glimpse of one of nature’s wonders you’re going to need some special viewing glasses. A total solar eclipse is when the moon passes between the Earth and the sun and fully blocks the sun — it’s a pretty big deal because the last one that was visible in the contiguous U.S. was 38  years ago and before that it happened in 1918, so it doesn’t really occur very often.

‘Gook’ Review: Indie Drama Offers Korean American Pov of La Riots

4 hours ago

There’s something wondrous about being in a car wash. For a few stolen moments, real life dissolves into a cool, dark shadow world where splashes and bubbles rain down just inches away from your face but can’t touch you. Soft-tipped whirligigs gently rock your vehicle — which, finally, for a couple of seconds at least, ceases to feel like a self-imposed cage. In “Gook,” Eli (Justin Chon, who also writes and directs) and his half-sister Kamilla (Simone Baker, “American Horror Story: Roanoke”) take full advantage of their break from the pressures of everyday existence. They forget that Eli’s junker. »

A version of this story on Tony Hale first appeared in the Down to the Wire issue of TheWrap’s Emmy magazine. This year on “Veep,” we learned several things about Tony Hale‘s character, Gary Walsh, the unreasonably devoted aide to Julia Louis- Dreyfus’ Selina Meyer.
