New details about Sean Astin’s character in season 2 of Stranger Things have been revealed. Aside from being a breakaway horror hit for Netflix, Stranger Things was also a bit of a flashback for fans of a certain age.

Fionn Whitehead is front and center in the latest poster for writer and director Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk. In an era of the entertainment industry right now, when brand names, sequels, and franchises are what dominate the market and box office every year, there are few filmmakers working today who are able to drum up large amounts of attention for their own original films. But Nolan is one of those few names, thanks in most part, to his critically acclaimed work on The Dark Knight trilogy and other blockbuster films like Inception and Interstellar. And with Dunkirk, it looks like Nolan is taking his technical prowess behind the camera to entirely new heights.
