Stranger Things Season 2 Got a Retro, VHS-Style Home Video Release


While we anxiously wait for more details about the third season of Stranger Things to trickle out, it seems we're about to have another way to re-watch Season 2—and it's much more fun—and on-brand—than your typical Netflix binge.

Just as Target released exclusive VHS-style Blu-ray and DVD editions of Stranger Things's first season, they are doing the same for Season 2. It's now available for both Blu-ray and 4K Ultra HD DVD, and looks like an old-school videotape, complete with random stickers and a perfectly faded cover design.

Both versions include six discs and some collectible behind the scenes photos from the series, along with some great special features.

Stranger Things Season 2 arrived just in time for Stranger Things Day, which happened on November 6. While many fans were hoping that the Netflix-created "holiday" meant we might get a trailer or some other sort of sneak peek into the next season, it didn't amount to much in the way of new information. Hopefully this retro home video release will make up for it.

Netflix and the Stranger Things showrunners have been ​getting our hopes up that Season 3 will be the best one yet, so we're counting down the months until next summer, when the new season is expected to debut.

Time and space will likely not matter to Marvel fans who have been anxiously awaiting Avengers: Endgame's arrival in theaters. But for fans who care how long the epic finale of Phase 3 will be, let’s just say you might want to invest in the extra-large popcorn and soda to get you through it. And somehow be able to hold your bladder. The movie is now reported to run a full 182 minutes long, according to Entertainment Weekly.

In early February, directors Joe and Anthony Russo said that the runtime for the final film in the Avengers series could rival movies like Titanic and The Lord of the Rings series. Though they couldn't yet give an official runtime, they estimated a possible three hours of jam-packed action and adventure. Now, as EW reports, AMC Theaters has apparently confirmed that prediction, which Fandango then co-signed.

Ahead of Avengers: Endgame's April 26th release, AMC Theaters set up a movie page for the film, which accidentally revealed its runtime. Neither Disney nor Marvel has confirmed the information, and the page has since been deleted, but it seems to be a clear confirmation that the Russo brothers weren't kidding when they said that Endgame would set the record for longest-ever MCU movie.

Fans of Netflix’s Marvel shows are still reeling from the news that the comic book company's slate of television series, including fan-favorites Daredevil and Jessica Jones, have been axed from the streaming service.

While the initial reaction was shock, many fans then anticipated that this seemingly abrupt breakup between Netflix and Marvel was due to the rollout of Disney+, the exclusive streaming service being created for Marvel’s parent company. Since Disney will be pulling all of its content from Netflix and releasing it on Disney+, many fans were hoping that the shows would simply carry over from one platform to the other.

But with the recent news that the Prop Store will be auctioning off important props from Daredevil, Luke Cage, and Iron Fistto the public this August, it feels safe to say that these series may be canceled for good after all.

However, the definitive end to the shows comes with some good news: fans have a chance at owning original pieces from the series, including Matt Murdock’s billy club from Daredevil, Pop’s swear jar from Luke Cage, and Danny Rand’s stunt yellow Iron Fist Mask from Iron Fist. Check out the official Prop Store site for more details.
