Ethan Hawke, Maya Hawke's father, also celebrated the release on Instagram, writing, "These two gorgeous new songs released yesterday by @maya_hawke. Album to follow." Check them out on Spotify and iTunes.
21. Earlier in the week, Hawke released a snippet of one of the songs on Instagram and announced an upcoming performance at the Sultan Room in Williamsburg on Aug.
Hawke skyrocketed into fame earlier this summer with her scene-stealing role as Robin Buckley, a sarcastic ice-cream scooper who came out as a lesbian on the show. Soon after, Hawke appeared in Quentin Tarantino's latest film effort "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood" as a Manson cult follower who gets cold feet en route to the family's infamous murders.” />
"To Love a Boy” also features muted synth sounds in the background, reminiscent of her "Stranger Things" role. Both singles feature Hawke's soothing vocals accompanied by some soft guitar strumming and a number of pared down instruments.
The "Stranger Things" star released two new singles Friday, "To Love a Boy” and “Stay Open,” both of which will appear on her yet-to-be-titled upcoming album. Hawke wrote the lyrics and singer-songwriter Jesse Harris wrote the music.

Fresh off her Manson cult role in Quentin Tarantino's "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood," Maya Hawke is turning to music.

Netflix may be slowly changing their stance on this, with recent news that “13 Reasons Why” will have a fourth and final season.” /> With the recent trend of Netflix originals not being renewed after a third season, the streaming service may be wise to show more patience with series that could take quite some time to gather their full strength.
For what is still a relatively new programming source, it should be encouraging for Netflix to see for the first time that is not only capable of keeping an original series on the air this long but for "OITNB" to make it to the finish line riding a high. This obviously isn't a case of a series being left on the air past its expiration date.
Demand remained an average of 17% above season-six levels over the first week of release for the title, with the upward movement in interest suggestive of an upward viewership tick. The appetite for the final season was not a one-day flash in the pan either.
market for the week following season 7’s launch. Among these, the only one to have a stronger conveyed market desire was runaway pop-culture hit “Stranger Things.” The comparative strength of “OITNB” is illustrated when comparing average demand expressions for all Netflix originals within the U.S.
This was 26% higher than the second-strongest market, the U.K. The results of the analysis showed that, among Netflix’s global audience, interest over the first 7 days post-release for “OITNB” was strongest in the U.S.
Litchfield Penitentiary may have closed its doors for good, but the last visit with its inmates saw a series-high level of interest for “Orange Is the New Black.”
The premier for the final season of Netflix's longest-running original registered 24% higher in the U.S. the day after its July 26 premiere than during the same period for the season-six premiere, according to demand measurement firm Parrot Analytics, which conducted exclusive analysis for Variety using its “demand expression” calculation.
But it is highly unlikely earlier seasons had levels approaching that of the current demand, with Netflix’s last reported domestic paid subscriber count 46% higher than the same time period in 2015. It should be noted that the analysis was only able to go back to the third season.
The resulting single weighted score provides a useful proxy for the viewer data Netflix doesn't publicly disclose. By analyzing online expressions of interest in a series from multiple sources, Parrot is able to determine its total demand level.
is a huge 73% higher than levels seen for season 3, released in 2015. Going further back, the final-season demand level in the U.S.

I thought I was going to have this Samuel L Jackson story," the "Orange Is the New Black" star told Variety's TV Take podcast. "I thought this ain’t going to happen until I’m 40, 45. Success right out of college came as a shock to Danielle Brooks.
On set she formed a tight-knit community. She recalled an experience coming to set and expressing disappointment to an "Orange is the New Black" script supervisor in a music video she had just shot for her song "Black Woman." Immediately, the script supervisor rallied crew members to help Brooks out with a reshoot. She said, "They [lent] me their services for free to shoot my first music video. I’ll forever be appreciative of that moment." That’s just a testament of community.
Second of all, I want to break barriers. I want people to relate to me, to say Danielle Brooks did that in the same way I look at Queen Latifah’s career or Octavia Spencer’s career or Viola Davis. I’m like these women broke barriers and that’s what I want to do."  "I pray for longevity, number one, past 30, 40, 50. And what of the future for Brooks?
She didn't want to play a "stereotype." When first reading the script she saw a character she described as a "black woman in prison and she's sassy." Brooks landed the role Tasha "Taystee" Jefferson in "Orange is the New Black" in 2013, two years after graduating from Julliard. Initially, the actress had her reservations about the role.
But my baby just reminded me it's not that deep. You’re going up steps. I can’t breathe. I think really truly the beginning stages of motherhood got me through being the lead of this production." Brooks began her career in theater and often returns to the stage. I'm tired. My feet are swelling. She discussed starring in a Shakespeare in the Park production of "Much Ado About Nothing" while several months pregnant: "Carrying a child, especially when you’re doing Shakespeare in the Park, when you’re out in the elements in the rain, you have to do a show come rain or shine. You got bugs in your face. Enjoy it, have fun, breathe, take care of yourself. It's cold one day its hot [another].
She concluded, "I want to stay true to the fact that there are millions of millions of black women out there that have millions and millions different stories and I want to be a vessel for them."” />
"You’re reading  and what they’re asking of this character and bringing out of this woman were things I’ve never seen before," she said. But as she read more, she saw the depth in the character. She didn't want to be that "one person of color" or "just that sassy black woman." 
"Literally when that show dropped, 13 hours later I had become famous," she said. She quipped, "I feel for those 'Stranger Things' kids."  Brooks had to adjust to overnight fame.

Other findings from the MoffettNathanson/HarrisX survey:
Password sharing: 14% of Netflix users tap into an account paid for by someone outside of their household, compared with 11% of Hulu users and 6% of Amazon Prime Video users.
Among Hulu customers, 72% are on the $5.99-per-month basic package with ads and 28% are on the $11.99 monthly no-ads plan (in line with Hulu's claim that 70% of its overall viewers are on the ad-supported tier). Subscription tiers: Of Netflix subscribers, 32% have the Basic plan ($8.99 per month), 43% have the Standard package ($12.99) and 26% have the Premium ($15.99).
1 and "Stranger Things" at No. 2, topping licensed shows like "The Office" and "Friends," according to a new study. Asked to pick their favorite shows on Netflix, users surveyed put "Orange Is the New Black" at No.
1 show on Netflix in 2018 in the U.S. in terms of minutes streamed was "The Office," followed by "Friends," "Grey's Anatomy," "NCIS," "Criminal Minds" and "Shameless." The most-viewed Netflix original in 2018, at the No. What's important to note, however, is that the survey asked which shows were viewers' favorites — that's different than actual time spent viewing. On this front, licensed shows have dominated, in part due to the fact that there are far more episodes of, say, "Friends" (236) than, for example, "Stranger Things" (25 through the first three seasons). 7 spot, was "Orange Is the New Black," per Nielsen.

But of the top 99, only 19 were original titles, 44 were licensed and 36 that respondents cited (like "Game of Thrones") weren't even available on the service, something the analyst firm attributed to consumers confusing Prime Video with the rentals and purchases available through Amazon Video. For Amazon Prime Video, the top five shows were each originals — "The Marvelous Mrs.
1 cited favorite show — unsurprisingly — was the breakout hit and award-winning "The Handmaid's Tale." Of the service's top 99 shows, 74 are shows acquired from cable and broadcast TV networks and only 17 are originals; meanwhile, eight of the shows cited by participants are are not currently on Hulu. Of the 99 most-cited TV shows for Netflix on the MoffettNathanson/HarrisX survey, 51 were Netflix originals, 42 were licensed TV shows and six actually are not on Netflix, reflecting consumer confusion about where they've watched their favorites.The MoffettNathanson/HarrisX survey also found that Hulu's No.

In its place, Netflix will continue to spend more on original programming and marketing to promote other choices." The analyst added that he continues to believe Netflix's shares are overvalued (he rates the stock "neutral"), and that new competitive threats in the U.S. Also in the top 10 were “Friends” (rolling off Netflix for WarnerMedia’s HBO Max next year) and “The Office” (leaving for NBCUniversal’s service in 2021). For that kind of "comfort-food content," according to MoffettNathanson principal analyst Michael Nathanson, the risk to Netflix "is a loss of easy-to-find and satisfying content that drives down time spent looking. are "hardly reflected in their stock price."
Usage: 77% of Netflix users 76% of Hulu customers watch either daily or a few times a week, while 60% of Amazon Prime Video users said the same. About 39% of both Netflix and Hulu subs say they stream something on the services every day, compared with 22% of Amazon Prime Video users.
Rounding out the top 10 on the survey, the fourth most popular show streaming on Netflix was "Ozark," followed by "Grace and Frankie"; "Black Mirror"; "Lucifer" (whose first three seasons aired on Fox before Netflix picked it up for a fourth season released this past May); "The Crown"; "The Office"; and "Friends."
Netflix still relies heavily on licensed content. (The No. 3 entry on the survey was a catch-all category of "movies.") subscription-video service users in May-June 2019. That said, 15 of the top 20 shows Netflix subscribers cited as their "favorite" shows were Netflix originals, according to a MoffettNathanson-commissioned poll conducted by HarrisX of 11,135 U.S.
But it will mean Netflix is going to have to continue to spend more to produce and market original content as media conglomerates claw back their libraries. That suggests that for Netflix, the coming departure of some popular old TV shows — not to mention a steady drop-off of Disney titles — isn't going to derail the streaming leader.

In our storyline, it's a pretty light atmosphere." "It's just really fun to watch someone do something really well and then it's so funny that it catches you off guard," Keery tells Variety. "Those are the moments when it's hard to keep it together.
Last chance to avoid spoilers.
government have been a key part of the first two seasons of "Stranger Things," but Season 3 of the Netflix series takes things in a very different direction. Agents of the U.S.
"I had just finished binge-watching the show with my wife," he says. I am a bit of a film aficionado, but they are real film enthusiasts. They have a wide knowledge of film, much wider than me, but at least we bonded on that when we met. "That’s fairly rare for us, but when it does happen, it’s a wonderful thing. So, I was a fan and it turns out I could see all their references. Like me, when they like a film, they watch it over and over again."
The Russian scientist told them the combination was Planck's constant, but none of them know what it is. Who comes to the rescue? Joyce, Hopper and Murray infiltrate the underground base, but are stymied when they are unable to open a safe containing two vital keys. Dustin's very real girlfriend, Susie.
"I was so happy because we had so much together," Ryder says. There is this thing that they have that they are both really scared of." "I love the kids — I love Charlie and Natalia — but we got to do so much, and it was really great.
"There were a couple where I said, ‘Happy July Fourth, motherf—er’ or ‘you commie piece of s—!’ There was something about this Independence Day thing, fighting the commies, it was so '80s — this ‘Red Dawn’ communist presence that good red-blooded Americans had to fight against." "We had some improvs when I’m beating him up at the end and I grab him and say, ‘I’ll see you in hell’ before I throw him in the thing," Harbour says.
"It’s very much like ‘Star Wars’ in a way," Matarazzo says. "Now that I think about it, it’s a lot like ‘A New Hope!’"
But a monstrous Russian that has been pursuing them all season attacks, leading he and Hopper to a no-holds barred brawl while Joyce tries desperately to turn the keys and destroy the machine. After Susie rattles off Planck's constant, Hopper and Joyce rush to destroy the machine being used to reopen the gateway.
Joyce is devastated, but the Russians and the Mind Flayer have been vanquished. She and Hopper share one final look before the machine explodes. Hopper does defeat the Russian, but he cannot get back to safety before Joyce destroys the machine.
Robin gets into the mix when she reveals she is great with languages and is able to translate the Russian message. Their story begins with Dustin and Steve trying to decipher a Russian message Dustin picks up on his homemade radio tower that he built to contact his girlfriend from summer camp, Susie (who no one believes exists).
The group's adventure throughout the season plays more like an '80s spy comedy than your typical "Stranger Things" plot, with more comedic moments in this one storyline than perhaps in the entire rest of the series.
SPOILER ALERT: Do not read if you have not watched Season 3 of "Stranger Things," streaming now on Netflix.
Matarazzo adds: "I look at her like the Cruella to our Jasper and Horace."
The group gets its name from the fact that both Steve and Robin work at the mall's ice cream shop, Scoops Ahoy. While most of the show's younger stars are busy dealing with the return of the Mind Flayer, a new team of heroes assembles known as the Scoop Troop: Dustin (Gaten Matarazzo), Steve (Joe Keery), newcomer Robin (Maya Hawke), and Lucas' little sister Erica (Priah Ferguson).
"That movie actually scared the crap out of me," Matarazzo says of the classic '80s fantasy film. I was so young and I thought stepping into a mud puddle and being sad would kill me. "I love horses to this day because of that movie. The horse sinks into the Swamps of Sadness!"
"It’s even more tragic because of the history that they share and because of how well they know each other," Harbour says. "If they were to actually get together and then it didn’t work, that would be even worse."
According to Keery, he "would be Leia" in this scenario.
Murray speaks Russian and translates the scientist's description of the Russian plan to reopen the gate that Eleven closed at the end of Season 2. After learning the location of the Russian-owned properties, Hopper and Joyce end up inadvertently kidnapping a Russian scientist, taking him to conspiracy theorist Murray Bauman (Brett Gelman). They then rush back to Hawkins, where they meet up with the rest of the gang.
While all of this is going on, Hopper (David Harbour) and Joyce (Winona Ryder) are working on the Russian problem independently. Joyce suspects something is amiss in Hawkins when magnets keep falling off her fridge. This leads her to consult with local science teacher Mr. Clarke (Randy Havens), inadvertently standing Hopper up for a dinner date.
Dustin contacts Susie via his radio tower. She knows what Planck's constant is but refuses to share the information until Dustin does something for her. He resists at first, before finally giving in and signing the theme song from "The NeverEnding Story" over the radio.
"She is so shy, so sweet, so polite," Hawke says. She is a really grounded, special kid." She is so thoughtful and respectful. "Priah’s intelligence is much softer and kinder. Her mom is so wonderful.
 ” />
The foursome eventually finds themselves trapped underground with the Russians, with Steve and Robin undergoing torture and being injected with a truth serum. Meanwhile, Erica and Dustin work to bust them out.
"I think throughout the season, Robin really opens up and as the stakes get higher she gets more and more vulnerable. Each one of us plays a vital role." "In the beginning I’m kind of a counterweight, taking the piss out of them a little bit," Hawke says. Then when we’re on drugs, we’re totally the children. The dynamics of the Scoop Troop shift a lot throughout the story. Then the relationships get deeper and deeper and by the end, [Steve and Robin] are like dad and mom.
Hopper's story may not end there, however. Harbour stayed mum about his true fate, but a tag at the end of the season at a secret Russian base shows a row of cells, with the guards bypassing the one containing "the American." They instead grab a Russian man, throwing him into a cage with a fully-grown Demogorgon.
Ferguson commands serious attention in her time onscreen this season, with the diminutive Erica being enlisted by the troop as her small stature allows her to fit into an air vent that has access to a storeroom that serves as the entrance. But while Erica is a take-charge, no-nonsense type, Ferguson's cast mates insist she is little like her character.
"It's a genius plot device to introduce this thing you're not sure is real and then at the very end, when all hope is lost, that's the person who supplies the information that you need," Keery says. "It's really smart writing."
So they decide to attempt to reopen the gateway that was previously opened in Hawkins, covering up their efforts by building the Starcourt shopping mall over their underground base. From the opening moments of the season, fans learn that classic '80s movie bad guys — the Russians — have been attempting to open their own gateway into the Upside Down with little luck.
Elwes, one of several '80s stars to pop up throughout the series, says the Duffers approached him to do the series at a fortuitous time. Hopper and Joyce eventually figure out that Hawkins mayor Larry Kline (Cary Elwes) is in bed with the Russians, helping them buy up properties around the town in exchange for kickbacks.
Their romantic feelings aside, Hopper and Joyce begin investigating and soon discover that the Russians have infiltrated Hawkins. Harbour and Ryder consider their dynamic this season more of a buddy cop vibe, referencing films like "Midnight Run" or "Bird on a Wire," with the pair pretty much spending the entire season together.

Which isn't to say that every "Office" fan, or even many of them, would necessarily drop Netflix in favor of the planned NBCUniversal service. Time spent watching "The Office" on an NBC service is time not spent within Netflix's ecosystem, potentially discovering new favorite Netflix originals after a few hours spent with the gang at Dunder Mifflin. But while household streaming budgets may have room for multiple subscriptions, viewers can only watch one thing at a time.
Losing "The Office" doesn't mean that Netflix is losing a property that has been a huge part of its appeal to many; it signals the need for Netflix to get working on a show that doesn't just attract viewer attention once users are logged in but has "Office"-level reach in attracting subscribers. The only ways for Netflix to continue to grow are to begin running ads, to continue raising prices or to attract more subscribers; if we assume those first two are not attractive, then the need to find shows with the power to convert non-subscribers becomes all the more pressing. If anyone could do it, it's them, but the distance between there and here suggests that the streaming wars are far from settled.” /> Netflix can spend the time between now and the end of 2020 relishing the hours fans of Jim and Pam spend reliving their office romance; surely, too, they'll be spending time working to find a show that has "The Office's" elemental mass appeal.
And it's hard to tailor a big, broad hit on par with an NBC smash from a decade ago; indeed, Netflix has so far not really had to. What Netflix wants — to be a must-have service for every consumer in the way a cable subscription was a decade ago — requires tentpoles. But not every potential customer will find something for them in the collection of niche shows, or cares to spend the time figuring out which less-heralded Netflix original is for them. When it has, as with "Stranger Things," an elaborate and time-consuming production that, when its new season drops in July, will have released 25 episodes in three years, it's required more muscle than simply putting forward a familiar and complete property, as well as more tolerance for risk. There was no reason "Stranger Things" would have hit big other than that it did, and there are plenty of shows on its scale that flailed on Netflix; we already know "The Office" is a beloved smash.
and might eventually end up on the planned WarnerMedia streamer.) The general viewing public is not necessarily acquainted with the reasons why these shows are shifting platforms, and those reasons don't really matter; if you've subscribed to Netflix primarily because it is the thing that delivers you "The Office" after you get home from work, that show's disappearance is something of a betrayal, and a loss that might make it worthwhile to switch streaming loyalties. (That show, which has had a similar renaissance among young fans at Netflix, is owned by Warner Bros. That's bad news for a streaming service that's also likely to lose "Friends," that other NBC sitcom that makes for soothingly easy and familiar binge-viewing.
The most important television show of this unusual moment may just be one whose last new episode aired in 2013.
In the years ahead, as contracts expire and as companies like NBCUniversal and WarnerMedia try their hands at streaming, Netflix will be forced to rely more on its suite of original programs, one about which no reliable or standardized viewership information is known but that necessarily lacks many programs with the penetrating brand recognition of "The Office." Netflix original series, ideally, appeal deeply to some portion of the audience, so much so that their presence on the service makes a subscription necessary. Such passionately followed shows are often quite niche.
Its absence will provide hardcore fans, those whose casual viewing has given "The Office" a new burst of zeitgeist relevance, one fewer reason to subscribe. In its protracted afterlife, though, it was known to many as a beloved workplace comedy whose every episode is available all at once on Netflix. NBCUniversal's announcement this week that it will to reclaim the rights to the series for exclusive streaming on a future NBC-owned service starting in 2021 upset the general sense among the viewing public that "The Office" was, as much as "Sex Education" or "The Crown," a Netflix show. "The Office" was, in its first life in the U.S., a beloved workplace comedy (based on a British series) that ran for nine seasons on NBC.

There's no firm release date for the tabletop game just yet, but expect "Dungeons & Dragons vs Rick and Morty" to release sometime this fall.
The adventure can accommodate up to five players, according to a press release. "Dungeons & Dragons vs Rick and Morty: Tabletop Roleplaying Game Adventure" will include everything those looking to dive into D&D will need to get started. D&D partnered up with Adult Swim to bring the dysfunctional family of the popular animated show to the tabletop game in a boxed set.
Earlier this month, a D&D starter kit based on the "Stranger Things" universe was released, in which players can team up against the Demogorgon. "Rick and Morty" certainly isn't the first tv show to get D&D crossover treatment.
The event also revealed that the "Rick and Morty" D&D comics are returning this fall in a new miniseries, called "Rick and Morty vs Dungeons & Dragons II: Painscape." The first issue is coming out September 18.
Ahead of that, "Trover Saves the Universe," from "Rick and Morty" co-creator Justin Roiland, is coming out later this month, May 31 for PlayStation 4 and PSVR (and later to PC).” />
The announcements for the new game kit and the return of the comic come during D&D Live 2019: The Descent, an event which gives a sneak peek at the new D&D storyline.
"Rick and Morty" is getting the Dungeons & Dragons treatment later this year in a new tabletop adventure, Wizards of the Coast announced Friday.

And we know that he was in Vietnam, so I'm curious as to how his tours in Vietnam might have shaped him to be who he is and if some of that stuff doesn't still linger or haunt him in various ways," Harbour shared. "We know that he was a cop in New York in probably the '70s, so I wonder if he knew Frank Serpico and if there are a lot of things we could go into in terms of that and his police training in New York.
"From the very beginning, I thought that these are two tortured, messed up, beautiful people who are like puzzle pieces that can't stand each other but actually need each other." "There may be other people in the mix in this situation, but I think they're built for each other and I would love to see them get together," Harbour confessed.
That's a horrifying thing for him — maybe even more so than fighting inter-dimensional monsters." "Their relationship is going to get far more complex, because, you know, things happen to girls and boys when they're 13 and 14," he said. "A lot of changes go on in the body and in your social life, and I don't think he's going to handle watching her become a woman in front of his eyes very well. But Season 3 will not be all fun and games for the folks of Hawkins, especially as Hopper takes on the role of legitimate adoptive father to Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown).
And while there are indeed other adults looking for love in Hawkins, Harbour wouldn't rule out a potential romance with longtime friend and kindred spirit Joyce Byers (Winona Ryder) — especially with Bob (Sean Astin) out of the picture (R.I.P.).
And along with new imports Cary Elwes as the self-serving Mayor Kline and Maya Hawke as Harrington's fellow ice cream scooper, a character likely to channel Chase's signature wiles is Jake Busey's Bruce, a "journalist for The Hawkins Post, with questionable morals and a sick sense of humor." In the cult flick, Chase plays a go-getter newspaper reporter who changes his identity at the drop of a hat in order to snag the juiciest story.
"I think it'd be interesting to see if Hopper has it in him to be vulnerable with a woman and to actually be able to show up in that capacity, like what kind of a man he would be in a relationship if that comes to fruition." Harbour did suggest a "summer of love" is on the horizon when "Stranger Things" returns prospectively in summer 2019.
And 'Fletch' is one movie we get to play around and have some fun with this season, which you wouldn't expect from 'Stranger Things' and you wouldn't expect from the Spielberg universe and you certainly wouldn't expect from a darker season.'" "The Duffers are so specific each year with the movies.
While Harbour notes that executive producer Shawn Levy has described the upcoming season as darker, scarier, bigger, and broader — perhaps due to Hopper's doom and gloom amidst the mall's arrival — the two-time Emmy nominee exclusively told Variety that Chevy Chase's 1985 comedy "Fletch" will serve as a source of inspiration for Season 3.
During the select Netflix event at the famed Cinespia spot, guests celebrated Halloween early by perusing a pumpkin patch, a hallmark to the rotted pumpkins Hopper finds in Season 2, in addition to posing for photos in front of the makeshift junkyard sans Demodogs while songs like Michael Jackson's "Thriller" blared in the background.
"Clearly, he's a dude who's stuck in the late '70s and he's an old school guy, so I don't think he likes to see the world change. Harbour characterized the curmudgeonly cop with a heart of gold's outlook towards the town's new development as a little more than complicated. But there are certain things you need to get in Hawkins that you can't get at Melvald's General Store."
"I don't know if Hopper would be caught dead at Scoops Ahoy," David Harbour joked ahead of a spooky "Stranger Things" screening at Hollywood Forever Cemetery in Los Angeles on Friday night. When Season 3 of "Stranger Things" eventually returns, don't expect Chief Jim Hopper to be jumping for joy at the sight of Starcourt Mall — or rushing to buy a sundae from Joe Keery's Steve Harrington, for that matter.
When asked during a Q&A moderated by Variety's deputy awards & features editor Jenelle Riley on whether or not Hollywood Forever was the strangest place he's ever done a screening, Harbour said: "Yes, it's kind of amazing to be surrounded by a couple of corpses."” />
As Harbour also teased that Season 3 feels like "so much of a departure and so much of a risk" from previous seasons of the sci-fi series, viewers should expect secrets that have been kept well-hidden to emerge. But some secrets Harbour specifically wants to uncover are the mysteries hidden within the boxes marked "Dad," "New York," and "Vietnam" in Hopper's basement.

"There are times when, if I could, I would delete my Instagram and my Twitter," Murray said. "But it’s so engrained in our industry, and I’m in the wave of people coming up that kind of need to have it. But I commend anybody who needs to take their space and decides to let it go."
In the wake of Twitter exits by celebrities like Brown and Kelly Marie Tran, who faced harassment online as the first female lead of color in the "Star Wars" franchise, Schnapp and more of Saturday's MTV Awards attendees discussed the potential harm of toxic fandom culture on social media.
Lighter social media trends, like the "tired of Wakanda" memes picturing a blank-faced Chadwick Boseman throwing up the Wakanda symbol, were also a topic of red carpet discussion. "Black Panther" actor and best fight nominee Winston Duke laughed at the mention of the infamous photo.
"13 Reasons Why" actress Alisha Boe also called for social media users to exercise empathy and recognize the humanity of those they target on the web.
"But you have to sympathize with that person, and you have to put your own self in their shoes and think, you wouldn’t want those messages." "People get so comfortable and confident behind a screen because it takes the human interaction out of it," Boe said.

Meanwhile, "Schitt's Creek" star and comedic performance nominee Dan Levy advocated for legislation protecting victims of social media harassment, as he said there is "no difference" between in-person and online abuse.

"I feel like the only reason people can get affected by cyberbullying is they invest all of themselves into social media," Jackson said. "If you give everybody everything that you are, they have the ability, but if you’re smart about what you post, and you’re smart about how much of yourself you give, you don’t ever have to worry about that."
Some, like "Riverdale" actress Ashleigh Murray, feel a pressure to weather the social media storm in order to stay relevant in an industry that is increasingly dependent on web presence. "Stranger Things" actor and scene stealer nominee Dacre Montgomery described social media as "the workplace" for those with entertainment careers.
That’s something that we labored over, and that’s something that’s our art, so I don’t think anyone’s really tired of it, but we do do it a lot. "I don’t think any of us are really tired of it. We do it a lot." "I think those were just taken out of context," Duke said.
People are just insensitive." "I think it was a smart move by her. "I feel really bad for her," the most frightened performance nominee told Variety on the MTV Movie & TV awards red carpet.
"Grown-ish" star Yara Shahidi said she likes to use social media to connect with fans, who she recognized as "the reason that we're here." But while she appreciates the benefits of online interaction, she also understands its negative capacities.
"It's a whole other component of really putrid dialogue that’s not considering the fact that we’re all humans. I feel like really just bringing back the humanity to social media is so essential because it’s a necessary tool." "You can say 'ignore it'; you can say, ‘this is what you signed up for,’ but I don’t think anyone signs up for hate," Shahidi said.
See the full list of nominees here. Tiffany Haddish hosted the MTV Movie & TV Awards, which air on Monday, June 18 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on MTV.
"Stranger Things" star Noah Schnapp is supportive of Millie Bobby Brown's recent decision to leave Twitter in response to homophobic memes made about her on social media.
"If someone writes you a letter that makes you feel unsafe, you would call the police. "There should be laws put in place is what I think," Levy said. If someone sends you a tweet, that should be taken with the same sort of weight as someone writing you a really abusive letter."

Shahidi's "Grown-ish" co-star Trevor Jackson echoed sentiments denouncing cyberbullying; however, he also believes those on the receiving end have a responsibility to guard themselves.

For example, according to the analysts, Netflix's "Stranger Things" season 2 captured higher search interest than every season of HBO's "Game of Thrones" in the U.S. UBS analysts also cited proprietary analysis of Google search trends, which indicate Netflix content is achieving the same or higher level of interest and recognition as traditional media incumbents.

Among the factors helping to drive up the stock, UBS on Monday raised its 12-month price target on Netflix from $290 to $345 per share, based on projections that the company is increasing its distance from competitors with investments in content and customer growth.
Also Monday, Macquarie Capital’s Tom Nollen published a research note, specifically calling out Netflix’s opportunity with 4K Ultra HD, as consumers replace older TVs with UHD models. “Netflix seems to have every secular trend in its favor,” the analyst wrote. That suggests Netflix is poised to migrate a growing number of subscribers currently on the standard $10-per-month HD plan, to the $14 monthly “family” plan, which allows up to four concurrent streams and access to Ultra HD content.
Netflix has been on a stock-market tear recently, and the new high comes after the shares hit a record high last Friday. At Monday's closing price of $315.00 per share, Netflix now has a market capitalization of more than $136 billion.
Netflix’s stock powered to another record close Monday, with shares ending the day up 4.6%, with investors rallying around upbeat Wall Street analyst reports and the company’s Oscar win on Sunday.
Meanwhile, Netflix on Sunday night notched its first documentary feature film Academy Award for “Icarus,” about Russia’s Olympic athlete doping scandal. It’s not clear how much the Academy Award win affected the stock price, but the prestige factor couldn’t have hurt enthusiasm for the company’s growing Hollywood clout. Netflix’s only other Oscar win came in 2014 for documentary short “The Lady in Number 6: Music Saved My Life.”
original content travels well — 'Stranger Things' and '13 Reasons Why' already have vast global appeal across regions," the UBS team wrote. "Analyzing Google search trends across regions for key Netflix originals, we find that premium U.S.
"Netflix has emerged as a content power house that is actively building a global moat," wrote the analysts, led by UBS's Eric Sheridan. "With a strong foothold in North American markets, the company is increasingly looking to international markets for the next leg of subscriber growth."

"Bright" is set in an alternate present-day Los Angeles, where Smith plays a cop partnered with the LAPD's first orc officer (Joel Edgerton). The film's conceit is that orcs are the lowest social caste, while elves are the highest-ranking class and fairies are hornet-like pests. "Bright" tries to explore the discrimination against orcs as commentary on the U.S.'s history of racial discord, an attempt some have criticized as falling flat.” /> The movie has generated controversy over its racial allegories.
viewers 18-49 on connected TVs from Dec. The hybrid cop-buddy/fantasy movie, said to have a $100 million budget, also drew an audience of about 7 million U.S. 22-24.
In addition, the Nielsen data currently covers only the U.S. First, Nielsen uses audio-based content recognition methodology for TV households to track SVOD viewing, which excludes mobile devices and computers. And Netflix has a point: The way Nielsen is measuring subscription VOD is not a complete picture.
So is "Bright" a hit? That's hard to say, given that Nielsen has only released select data since launching its subscription VOD measurement service this fall and Netflix doesn't reveal such metrics.
streaming subscribers as of the end of the third quarter of 2017. But as a comparative metric, the Nielsen tabulations for "Bright" — which Netflix has marketed heavily as a big-budget, blockbuster-worthy picture — shows that it attracted a healthy but not astonishing level of interest. For what it's worth, Nielsen also said 56% of overall viewership for "Bright" was male and 44% was female over the first three days. Netflix reported 52.8 million total U.S.
According to Nielsen, "Bright" was less popular than supernatural-thriller series "Stranger Things" season 2 — but drew a bigger crowd than the second season of Queen Elizabeth II drama "The Crown."
Netflix original movie "Bright" starring Will Smith — which has been widely panned by critics — pulled in a total audience of more than 11 million in the first three days of release, according to Nielsen estimates.

Meanwhile, "The Crown" season 2's first episode on Netflix averaged nearly 3 million U.S. 27-29), the premiere episode averaged an impressive 15.8 million viewers overall (and 11 million in the 18-49 demo) over that period, per Nielsen. viewers, including nearly 1.3 million people 18-49, within the first three days of its availability (Dec. In the first three days of "Stranger Things" season 2's release (Oct.
viewership estimate by average movie-ticket price ($8.93 for Q3), that might look like a $100 million opening weekend for "Bright." But that's not a valid apples-to-apples comparison, because Netflix subscribers already pay for the service — they didn't go out and buy theater tickets for the movie. Netflix's standard two-stream HD plan, now at $10.99 per month, also is less than the cost of two movie tickets. If you simply multiplied the 11 million three-day U.S.
Netflix has disputed Nielsen’s figures (and other third-party attempts to measure viewing on its service). The streamer specifically said the estimates for "Stranger Things" were off by a wide margin.
Variety's Peter Debruge offered one of the few raves for the film. "Bright," directed by David Ayer ("Suicide Squad"), currently has a dismal 26% critics' rating on Rotten Tomatoes — but a strong 89% audience-approval score.

Millie Bobby Brown, who also stars in "Stranger Things" as the telekinetic Eleven, recently appeared on "The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon" where she demonstrated her own musical skills by performing a rap recap of Season 1 of "Stranger Things."
Finn Wolfhard, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, and Noah Schnapp appeared on "The Late Late Show With James Corden" in a mockumentary which revealed that prior to being television stars, the boys were part of a Motown cover band with Corden called "The Upside Downs." The sketch concluded with a medley performance by the quintet who sang "I Want You Back" by the Jackson Five, "My Girl" from the Temptations, and "I’ll Be There” from the Four Tops.
The catchy synth soundtrack and nostalgic '80s tunes helped make Netflix's "Stranger Things" a hit among viewers, but who knew its young stars could nail a Motown medley?
All the boys landed their roles, with the exception of Corden who ended up "wearing a suit and sitting behind a desk wasting [his] life," although McLaughlin called the band "the most creatively fulfilling thing I've ever been a part of." "You know, he was held back a couple of years, but we were in the same grade." The band eventually caught the attention of a Netflix executive who invited them to audition for the show. In the skit, the group details the band's history and how "some people thought it was weird that James hung out with us because he’s an adult, but we actually went to school with him," Wolfhard said.

"Even with the reduction in 2018 subscriber growth, our 2020 global subscribers forecast is barely impacted with over 176 million subscribers," he added, down from his previous estimate of 178 million. With the price increases, Greenfield expects Netflix's global subscriber growth to slow "modestly" in 2018 (with 20.2 million net new subs vs.

Netflix's "content prowess" gave it the pricing power to raise prices, according BTIG Research's Rich Greenfield, sooner than the analyst expected. "We believe the timing of the subscription price increases is directly tied to the power of content available on Netflix this quarter," he wrote in a blog post.
Netflix said it was raising prices "as we add more exclusive TV shows and movies, introduce new product features and improve the overall Netflix experience." Earlier in the day, the company confirmed that it is raising the two-stream HD tier price to $10.99 per month, up $1 per month from the previous $9.99 monthly fee, and hiking its four-stream Ultra HD "premium" plan from $11.99 to $13.99 per month.
