Stranger Things trailer, poster and new stills promise retro chills

Check out the excellent first trailer for Stranger Things, starring Winona Ryder

The first trailer for Netflix’s upcoming supernatural drama Stranger Things, starring Winona Ryder, has arrived with a gorgeous new poster and some new stills, and we love the look of this one.

“Set in Hawkins Indiana in the 1980’s, Stranger Things chronicles the search for a young boy who vanishes into thin air under highly suspicious circumstances.

His mother (Winona Ryder) opens an investigation into the boy’s disappearance with local authorities that unravels a series of mysteries involving top-secret government experiments, terrifying supernatural forces and one very strange little girl. A love letter to the ubiquitous cult classics of the 80’s, Stranger Things is a coming of age story for three boys that draws this quaint community into a world where mysteries lurk beneath the surface.”


There’s a real Steven Spielberg/Stephen King vibe to the show so far, and we’re very much excited about the prospect of an ’80s-set supernatural drama. And Winona Ryder’s in it, so that’s obviously brilliant.

Stranger Things makes its global debut on Netflix July 15th. Keep up with the latest genre news with the new issue of SciFiNow.
