First Trailer For Netflix's STRANGER THINGS, a Throwback To Classic Amblin '80s Films

Here's the first trailer and poster for Stranger Things, a new Netflix TV series that looks like an exciting throwback to classic '80s films like the ones made by Steven Spielberg and Amblin Entertainment. It has all the hallmarks of one of those films: something supernatural going on in a small town, mysterious government entities, child protagonists, and a strong family component. I like the look of the show from what I'm seeing here, and it should be interesting to see if writer/director/co-showrunners Matt and Ross Duffer can sustain that Amblin tone over the course of multiple hours of a television show.

Every episode of the first season will be available to stream on July 15, 2016.

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.

Stranger Things stars Winona Ryder, David Harbour, Finn Wolfhard, Millie Brown, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, Noah Schnapp, Natalia Dyer, Cara Buono, Charlie Heaton, and Matthew Modine.

Matt Duffer and Ross Duffer (Wayward Pines, Hidden) serve as writer, directors and co-showrunners of the series, and are executive producers along with Shawn Levy and Dan Cohen via their 21 Laps entertainment banner (The Spectacular Now, Night At The Museum, Real Steel, Date Night). Shawn Levy also serves as director. Stranger Things is a Netflix original series.
