Here are the biggest stories you may have missed in entertainment during the week and others that unraveled while you slept – and are still buzzing today.
Paramount Pictures release teaser trailer for ‘Terminator: Dark Fate’
Look, the teaser trailer for Terminator: Dark Fate may have some questionable CGI but Linda Hamilton as Sarah Connor is back! Also, Dark Fate reunites producer James Cameron, Connor, and Arnold Schwarzenegger since the original was released in 1984. This latest iteration in the franchise features Mackenzie Davies as a half-cyborg going against Gabriel Luna as the Terminator. Well, finger crossed as the movie hits theaters November 1, 2019.

Rema releases video for ‘Dumebi’
Mavin Records’ latest signee Rema dropped the video for Dumebi on Wednesday, off his Iron Man EP released back in March. The video has a slouchy, teenage vibe to it, and really appropriate for Gen Zs.

Netflix release latest teaser for Stranger Things 3
Another look at Stranger Things 3 was released this week and it’s all about Billy (Dacre Montgomery) and his summer job of being a lifeguard at the pool. I really don’t like Billy as a character but in the teaser, there’s something unpalatable about him being objectified by older women as he walks past shirtless. Montgomery’s character is barely 18. Yuck.
Anyway, the new season arrives Netflix July 4, 2019.
