First trailer for Netflix's Stranger Things

Like old school Spielberg made a TV show

When J.J. Abrams delivered Super 8 to us I reveled in its unabashed homage of classic Spielberg adventure films. I kind of wondered why it hadn't kicked off a bit of a renaissance of the 1980s supernatural film, but alas it was not to be. Thankfully, Netflix is in the business of making my dreams come true so we have Stranger Things.

Starring Winona Rider and a cast of intrepid, adventuring kids the show comes from the creators of Wayward Pines so you know it's going to be at least a little weird. From this first look it definitely looks like the wonder-filled 80s Spielberg movies we all loved with maybe a dash more of horror. The only hiccup I'm seeing is that the series is run by Sean Levy, who doesn't have the best track record aside from the original Night at the Museum. Hopefully he can bring some of the childhood wonder that he brought to that movie to this new series.
