IKEA Recreates The Living Rooms From The Simpsons, Stranger Things & Friends

You definitely know the rooms, but how well do you know the furnishings?

A new ad campaign from IKEA in the United Arab Emirates has some fun with three of television’s most iconic living rooms by recreating each one solely with IKEA furniture and decorations—plus some help from 3-D design software.

Created by Publicis Spain, the “IKEA Real Life” campaign took two months to track down all the right pieces that are currently on sale from Ikea. They were then compiled and designed via 3-D software to look as close as possible to the memorable living rooms from The Simpsons, Friends and Stranger Things.

On a microsite for the campaign, you can see each room and learn more about the furnishings featured in the ads.

Watch The Star Trek: Picard Teaser Trailer

CBS All Access has released a new Star Trek: Picard teaser, featuring a retired Jean-Luc Picard (Patrick Stewart) as a voiceover questions why the admiral left Starfleet in the first place.

Showrunner Hanelle Culpepper will direct the first two episodes of Star Trek: Picard, the first woman to launch a Star Trek series.

The series also stars Alison Pill (The Newsroom), Harry Treadaway (Mr. Mercedes, Penny Dreadful), and Isa Briones (American Crime Story: Versace), Santiago Cabrera (Salvation), Evan Evagora and Michelle Hurd (Blindspot).

Alex Kurtzman, Star Trek: Discovery showrunner and executive producer for Picard, recently said that the new series is “an extremely different rhythm than Discovery. Discovery is a bullet. Picard is a very contemplative show. It will find a balance between the speed of Discovery and the nature of what Next Gen was, but I believe it will have its own rhythm.

Without revealing too much about it, people have so many questions about Picard and what happened to him, and the idea we get to take time to answer those questions in the wake of the many, many things he’s had to deal with in Next Gen is really exciting. ‘More grounded’ is not the right way to put it, because season 2 of Discovery is also grounded. It will feel more… real-world? If that’s the right way to put it.”

CBS Television Studios will produce the series in association with Secret Hideout and Roddenberry Entertainment. Alex Kurtzman, Michael Chabon, Akiva Goldsman, James Duff, Patrick Stewart, Heather Kadin, Rod Roddenberry, and Trevor Roth will serve as executive producers.

New Coke & Netflix Take Viewers Back To 1985 For Stranger Things Season 3 In First-of-its-Kind Partnership

Fans of the Netflix series Stranger Things will travel back to “the summer that changed everything” – 1985 – when season 3 of the show hits the streaming platform on July 4.

Coincidentally, the summer of 1985 changed everything for Coca-Cola when the company infamously changed the formula of its beloved flagship beverage with the short-lived launch of New Coke.

In a first-of-its-kind partnership for Netflix, the Stranger Things team collaborated with Coca-Cola to immerse viewers in 1980s nostalgia. Executives from Netflix visited the Coca-Cola archives in Atlanta last year to study New Coke packaging, memorabilia, advertising and more to ensure the script accurately reflected historical events and that all props and visuals stayed true to the time period. New Coke will appear in several episodes.

And (spoiler alert!) New Coke will be available this summer via a (very) limited promotional run to bring to life one of 1985’s biggest cultural moments – both on and off screen.

Stranger Things creators and showrunners Matt and Ross Duffer (“the Duffer Brothers”) – longtime Coke fans – have gone to great lengths to weave the brand into the show’s storyline since its first season. To date, Coca-Cola products, ads and logos have appeared more than a dozen times in the series.

Moviegoers will see another “first” from the Coke-Netflix partnership this summer – the first-ever advertisement directed by the Duffer Brothers. The ad, which will run online and in select cinemas nationwide starting May 24, features Stranger Things characters enjoying New Coke at a movie theatre. The spot brings Season 3 into the real world by placing the show’s cast in the plotline of a 1980s Coca-Cola TV ad set to the original music.

New Coke cans roll off a production line near Atlanta earlier this month. On Thursday May 23, Coca-Cola will release a limited number of New Coke cans online as part of a partnership with the hit Netflix show Stranger Things. 

The New Coke comeback will extend beyond cameos on the show, however. Coca-Cola is bringing back a very limited promotional supply of the ill-fated product – which was pulled after only 79 days on the market following public outcry – this summer.

Beginning May 23 at 5 p.m. ET, Coca-Cola will release a limited number of 12-oz. cans of New Coke – yes, the same recipe from 1985 – as part of a bundle that includes two New Coke cans along with a limited-edition and numbered Stranger Things/Coca-Cola and Coke Zero Sugar 8-oz. glass bottle at CokeStore.com/1985.

Fans can also get their hands on New Coke via an “upside-down” Stranger Things-inspired vending machine that will pop up in select cities, starting May 23 in New York, to dispense free cans of New Coke for a limited time. And fans who buy a ticket to the World of Coca-Cola in Atlanta or make a purchase of $19.85 or more at Coca-Cola Store Las Vegas on select days during the week of June 3 will have a chance to get New Coke cans as a gift, while supplies last.

Because the limited supply of New Coke is only expected to last a few weeks, Coca-Cola also is unveiling limited-edition Stranger Things packages to engage more fans in the partnership, including a 16-oz. can of Coke featuring the original (pre-New Coke) 1985 design with “Enjoy Coke” and the Stranger Things logo, and a 16-oz. Coke Zero Sugar can with a limited-edition Stranger Things design. The “sip & scan” icons on the cans unlock chances to win a variety of Stranger Things experiences as part of the “Enjoy Coca-Cola” summer campaign.

Feature film director Louis Leterrier (Now You See Me, The Incredible Hulk) will executive produce the series as well as direct. The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance will be a Netflix original series produced by The Jim Henson Company and executive produced by Letterier, Lisa Henson and Halle Stanford. Longtime Henson collaborator Rita Peruggi will serve as producer and Henson’s Blanca Lista will serve as a co-executive producer. Leading the writing are co-executive producers Jeffrey Addiss and Will Matthews (Life in a Year), and Javier Grillo-Marxuach (Lost, The 100).

Game of Thrones Co-Creators David Benioff & D.B. Weiss Making Next Star Wars Film

Today Disney CEO Bob Iger confirmed that the Star Wars movie after The Rise of Skywalker will be penned by Game of Thrones creators, David Benioff and D.B. Weiss.

One week ago The Walt Disney Company put out their film slate through 2027, including three mystery Star Wars films dated for December 16, 2022, December 20, 2024 and December 18, 2026.

Regarding the break between the next Star Wars film and the planned 2022 movie, Iger said: “We’re hard at work already, but we felt three years was the proper amount of time to not only take a breather and reset, but to gear up for the next film’s release.”

It was revealed last year that the pair would write and produce a new series of Star Wars films, separate from both the episodic Skywalker saga and the previously announced trilogy that is in development from Star Wars: The Last Jedi‘s Rian Johnson.

“David and Dan are some of the best storytellers working today,” Kathleen Kennedy, president of Lucasfilm, previously said. “Their command of complex characters, depth of story and richness of mythology will break new ground and boldly push Star Wars in ways I find incredibly exciting.”

“In the summer of 1977 we traveled to a galaxy far, far away, and we’ve been dreaming of it ever since,” Benioff and Weiss said. “We are honored by the opportunity, a little terrified by the responsibility, and so excited to get started as soon as the final season of Game of Thrones is complete.”

No word has been revealed about when Rian Johnson’s trilogy will arrive, but Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker will be released on December 20 of this year.

Watch The NOS4A2 Season Premiere Teaser: Vic McQueen vs. Charlie Manx

A new teaser for AMC‘s upcoming supernatural series adaptation NOS4A2 has been released, giving us a tease of the incoming face-off between Vic McQueen and Charlie Manx.

NOS4A2, based on Joe Hill’s bestselling novel of the same name, tells the story of Charlie Manx (Zachary Quinto), a seductive immortal who feeds off the souls of children, then deposits what remains of them into Christmasland – an icy, twisted Christmas village of Manx’s imagination where every day is Christmas Day and unhappiness is against the law. Manx finds his whole world threatened when a young woman in New England discovers she has a dangerous gift.

The Goldfinch‘s Ashleigh Cummings will play Vic McQueen, a young, working-class artist whose creativity awakens a supernatural ability to track Manx (Quinto). What Vic lacks in social confidence, she makes up for in courage, humor, and tough-as-nails grit. She strives to defeat Manx and rescue his victims without losing her mind or falling victim to him herself.

NOS4A2 is produced by AMC Studios in association with Tornante Television. The series is executive produced by Joe Hill, Jami O’Brien (Fear The Walking Dead, Hell On Wheels), who created the show for television and will serve as showrunner, and Lauren Corrao, Co-President of Tornante Television. The cast also includes the previously announced Olafur Darri Olafsson (Lady Dynamite) as Bing Partridge, Virginia Kull (The Looming Tower) as Linda McQueen, Ebon Moss-Bachrach (The Punisher) as Chris McQueen and Jahkara Smith (aka Sailor J) as Maggie Leigh.

The first season is slated to premiere Sunday, June 2 at 9pm/8c.
