More Stranger Things To Come..

    They say there are two things inevitable in life, Death and Taxes. Now obviously this phrase is old and dated, as there are many more inevitable things in our day to day non-colonial lifestyles. Something that was obviously inevitable but somehow still need the fanfare to go with it was just announced today by the powers that be at streaming service company Netflix. Stranger Things has been renewed for a 3rd season.

     Stranger Things has become a transcending show on Netflix. Appealing to the different masses on a level we haven’t seen in pop culture since Game of Thrones and Walking Dead. While no official numbers have ever been released (why they hide these things I don’t know) it was estimated that over 15 million viewers tuned in to the season 2 premiere within its first three days of release on October 27th. Boosting a score of 94% on rotten tomatoes it seems most everybody has agreed that Stranger Things is doing something right. “The Duffer Brothers have again managed to wield their particular alchemy and create a follow-up worthy of the hype created by its predecessor.” Allison Keene of Collider.com said of season 2.

        Minor spoiler warning ahead: Season 2 ends on a minorish cliff-hanger and with no season 3 announcement made prior to its release fans were left up in arms. Netflix has made it a habit of only renewing shows on a season by season basis, with some exceptions Vis-à-vis House of Cards. Using this model has fans salivating at any news that may come from the officials and it is one of the most asked questions of both production staff and the actors. Now I want to put something out on front street with this announcement: Yes we will be getting a season 3….eventually. Yep, no release date was attached to this press release.

   In an interview with indiewire.com, before the announcement of season 3, the Duffer Brother have stated “Season 3 is still so early in it’s stages of development that it hasn’t even gotten the official greenlight. It’s really just Matt and me working with some writers and figuring out where it’s going to go,” said Ross Duffer. So while we know a season 3 will happen it looks like everyone involved s finding the best way to bring us that story.

If you haven’t checked out Stranger Things yet, both seasons 1 and 2 are available for streaming anytime through Netflix. For those of you who are not on the streaming train, a season 1 box set has been released and can found at all major retailers.

A New Trailer For MARVEL’s Web Slinger..

(Joshua Gilmore-Staff Writer)

This week brought us the newest trailer for the upcoming DC “Justice League” movie and MARVEL couldn’t let their sleeping dogs or web slingers lie, because we have been treated to another taste of “Spiderman:Homecoming” in the form of a new action packed trailer.

This is the second trailer for this new era of Spiderman and the anticipation continues to rise. The first trailer gave us the John Hughes meets comic books world of Peter Parker and this new preview wipes away the angst to give us more of an adult threat with The Vulture, played with brilliant menace by Michael Keaton. Also, we received a clearer look at the possible mentor relationship between Parker and Tony Stark. It would be too easy to label it a father and son relationship, but we all know the downsides of heroes and their parental issues.

 “Spiderman:Homecoming” is a movie this character has deserved for a long time and MARVEL is treating it with the respect other studios seem to have struggled to accomplish. This is a great year to be a movie fan and it’s great to see this web slinger finally come home.

“Spiderman:Homecoming” will swing into theater July 7th

The League Of DC Comes Together..

 The Justice League have assembled.. sorry they have united in the newest trailer for the upcoming blockbuster for the DC cinematic universe. Since last year’s San Diego Comic Con, we have been treated to full blown trailers and other clips, but this is our chance to see this team in full tilt boogie level action.

This preview does the job of every good trailer and makes you want more, but with the speed bumps that the DC Universe has seen, the doubts are in the water and I will not add to it. This trailer is an excellent piece that gives you the right taste of everyone and reveals more of the Justice League team that you might have been wondering about. I know that I am not alone with the thought of Aquaman stealing this movie and owning every scene he is in.

 As the DC promotion train picks up stream, the hopes for Justice League can only grow and November can’t get here quick enough. There is the possible question out there of DC ability to finally reach MARVEL’s cinematic levels in the theaters, but those question should finally be ignored and DC can focus on their own film legacy.

Just in case you need the reminder, JUSTICE LEAGUE will be in theaters November 17th

Inside The Artist’s Mind..

 In the past our convention coverage, our focus would stay on the art of the comic book pages and the creative minds that put pen to page. In this installment of our adventures at the 2017 Long Beach Comic Expo, we are leaving the pages and moving to the wall, so we can talk with artist Michael Matsumoto.

 Michael is an illustrator and a conceptual artist that delves deep into pop culture for inspiration. During his continuing elevation in the art world, Michael has developed a following and has picked up freelance work in the form of commissioned pieces. Also, during this time, he has found a place in the convention circuit and this is where we crossed paths.

I Am GROOT! (Translation: NEW GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL.2 TRAILER!)

The world has been waiting for more of the Guardians, in October we were delivered a teaser shot of MARVEL’s space warriors and we wanted a longer drink. Today, the team from “Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol.2” helped relieve any lingering Thanksgiving hangovers and gave the masses a larger dose of Groot.

I think I could stay away from the death button, but I could not avoid the reply button on this trailer. MARVEL seems to have a knack to build a smaller franchise into a monstrous movie event, can you think of your love for Iron Man before the first movie? Anyways, the MARVEL machine has made the right moves when it comes to the guardians’ world and this next volume has the makings to become another box office force to be reckoned with.

In case you need the reminder, Vol.2 of the Guardians is unleashed in theaters May 5,2017!

Two Paths Cross At Last..

This installment of Nowhere California’s coverage of the 2016 Stan Lee Los Angeles Comic Convention has a short back story and that will lead us into the conversation with the multi-talented, Joe Ochman.

In the early days of Nowhere, the team would never have imagined that we would conduct interviews with people from the entertainment world and gain actual connections with this talented world, but that changed with the chance meeting with Satu and Steve J. Palmer from “Queen Gorya”. After that meeting, Steve J. Palmer started to line up interviews for the guys from Nowhere and one of those interviews was going to be with Joe Ochman.

Ochman is a multi-talented performer that has delved into many aspects of the entertainment world, he has taken his talented from the stage to the screen and behind the scenes. The chance to talk with Joe was an opportunity that the Nowhere California team couldn’t wait to talk with him, but a few speed bumps appeared in the way (so goes the life of the independent podcaster) It took a little time, but good things come to those who wait and we jumped to the chance to talk with Joe at the 2016 Stan Lee Comic Con.

The entire Nowhere California team would like to thank Joe for taking the time to talk with us at the convention. We hope it won’t be too long before we get the opportunity to delve deeper into your career and talk again.
