A new trailer and poster have arrived for Netflix’s supernatural drama Stranger Things, and the Spielberg influence is all over it.
Created by the Duffer brothers and starring Winona Ryder, David Harbour, Matthew Modine, Millie Bobby Brown and Finn Wolfhard, Stranger Things draws on Spielberg, King and Carpenter to make something that is looking pretty excellent.
“An innocent night playing Dungeons & Dragons takes a tragic turn for a group of friends in Hawkins Indiana when Will Byers disappears…seemingly into thin air. The year is 1983 and this small town is abuzz with conspiracy theories behind the missing boy’s circumstances. As friends, family and local police search for answers behind his disappearance they are drawn into an extraordinary mystery involving top-secret government experiments, terrifying supernatural forces and the discovery of one very strange little girl. Her appearance and powers appear super human and the boys begin to understand that she might have a sinister connection to their missing friend.”
Stranger Things makes its global debut on Netflix on 15 July. Keep up with the latest genre news with the new issue of SciFiNow.
