Stranger Things fans who have long wanted to experience the Upside Down for themselves will soon have their chance. On August 16, Atlanta Movie Tours, which regularly hosts tours of The Walking Dead shooting locations and the house where Gone With the Wind was written, is adding a new event to its roster: the Atlanta Upside Down Tour.

The three-and-a-half-hour bus tour will provide Stranger Things fans with up-close looks at places like the Upside Down, Hopper’s Cabin (which was recently turned into an escape room), the Hawkins Police Station, and the Palace Arcade.

Fans will also be able to visit filming sites that were integral to the survival of our favorite characters, including Benny’s Burgers, where Eleven hid out when she escaped from Hawkins Lab in season 1. Here, guests will get the chance to refuel with plates of waffles and bacon.

The tour also stops by the farm used for Merrill’s pumpkin patch, where rotting pumpkins led to the discovery of the Upside Down. These are just a few of the many stops made, with fans also getting to enjoy trivia and behind-the-scenes stories about the making of Stranger Things.

Tickets can be purchased now at the Atlanta Movie Tours website.

The Office Star Angela Kinsey Would Love to Do a Reunion Special

Whenever a classic TV show is brought back for a revival, it usually splits the fanbase in half. While some people are happy to see their favorite characters return, others are worried about the series coming back in lackluster fashion. And when it comes to the idea of a potential reboot of The Office, the series' cast is just as split.

Steve Carell has been very public about not wanting NBC to bring the show back, but Angela Kinsey is siding with co-stars John Krasinski, Jenna Fischer, and Ellie Kemper about welcoming a potential return to Scranton. The 48-year-old actress, who portrayed Angela Martin on the series, recently spoke with PopCulture.com, confirming she’d love to revisit the show.

"I would definitely be up for a reunion," Kinsey said. "I know a few cast members have talked about a special reunion episode to see where everyone is at. I would love that!"

Although many are torn on the idea of bringing The Office back, most fans would certainly be curious enoug to tune in and see what's going on with the Dunder Mifflin crew. Kinsey is no exception, saying, “I would love to know where these people are! I loved the show, I still love the show. I think it really holds up. I'm so thrilled that new audiences are finding it, so I would love that!"

Will it ever happen? It's hard to say. But while we wait to see if any official announcement is made, you can at least still binge The Office on Netflix and try to imagine what creepy thing Cousin Mose is doing these days.

Harry Potter Fans Don’t Want to See the Movies Rebooted, Surprising No One

Although the Harry Potter franchise has one of the most dedicated fan bases in the world, that doesn’t mean fans are ready to see the series rebooted just yet. Yes, that would mean more movies to feed one’s obsession, but the general consensus is that it would be entirely too soon. Don’t believe us? A new poll might just prove it.

ComingSoon.net asked more than 2000 Potterheads if Warner Bros. should reboot the Harry Potter movie series, and a whopping 72 percent said they’re against it. The website also asked fans if reboots were made, how they should be done. Of those polled, 41 percent voted for it to be a direct sequel about Harry’s son, 35 percent voted for a spinoff TV series, 13 percent wanted another Fantastic Beasts spinoff, and a measly 11 percent showed support for a remake of all eight original films.

While it doesn’t look like a reboot will be in the works anytime soon (J.K. Rowling’s representatives just debunked a report about a TV series), that doesn’t mean it’s impossible for the future. Even star Daniel Radcliffe has entertained the idea, saying he believes he won’t be the last Potter portrayal he’ll see in his lifetime. But as long as Rowling and fans are against it, we probably won’t have to worry about it for a while.
