Netflix's Stranger Things: Season 1 — New Trailer


added: Thu, Jun 30th '16

Netflix has unveiled a new trailer for the mystery thriller series "Stranger Things," which revolves around the sudden disappearance of a boy named Will, and the sudden arrival of a mysterious girl who appears to possess telekinetic powers.

Unabashedly influenced by Steven Spielberg's films of the early '80s, creators/showrunners/brothers Matt and Ross Duffer -- whose credits include writing several episodes of FOX's "Wayward Pines: Season 1" and writing and directing last year's indie thriller "Hidden" -- fully embrace the nostalgia of such movies as "The Goonies" and "E.T." as they bring a sense of childhood wonderment to what is essentially a Spielbergian mystery-horror series.

In her first small-screen starring role, Winona Ryder plays the mother of the missing boy, Will, who looks to her small town's sheriff (David Harbour) for answers, but realizes he's just as baffled and confused by the whole thing. Meanwhile, the neighborhood children have organized their own search party to find Will, only to later discover a strange girl in the woods, who may have just escaped from a secret government facility.

Is there a connection between the two children and all the strange things that are happening just outside of town? Oh, yeah, you better believe it.

"Stranger Things" co-stars Cara Buono and Matthew Modine, and will be premiering on Friday, July 15th, only on Netflix.

A love letter to the supernatural classics of the 80's, Stranger Things is the story of a young boy who vanishes into thin air. As friends, family and local police search for answers, they are drawn into an extraordinary mystery involving top-secret government experiments, terrifying supernatural forces and one very strange little girl.
