Breaking Down Harrison Ford Actually Laughing

Headline: Grumpy Old Man Caught on Tape Laughing! Not that big of a story you say? It is when that grumpy old man is world famous curmudgeon Harrison Ford. That’s why on today’s Nerdist News Talks Back we tried to make sense of his unprecedented display of joy, along with discussing the latest on Stranger Things and Thor: Ragnarok.

Host Jessica Chobot was joined today by managing editor Alicia Lutes, producer Jason Nguyen, and Director of Development Brendon Shulze, to help make sense of this strange new world where Harrison Ford laughs and smiles like a normal person. They broke down the hilarious interview where the unthinkable happened (not just the laughing, but the part where Harrison Ford was actually engaged in a conversation), and asked Brendon how we can get interviewer Alison Hammond her own show her at Nerdist and Alpha. (Miss Hammond! Call us!)

From there things got Upside Down, as they went over the latest clip from Stranger Things season 2, featuring our first real look at new character Max. What do we think of the clips’ tone? And do we see anything wrong with Netflix raising its prices right before the new season drops this year, especially when we might also get a chance to spend some money on Stranger Things on Blu-ray?

Finally, there’s more new footage from Thor: Ragnarok, which includes a different look at that already famous “hammer scene.” What does it mean? Is this a case of misdirection? And are we actually getting a little overwhelmed from all of the promotional material?
