All the elements are seemingly in alignment: Set in 1983 Indiana, total Spielberg homage, casting Winona Ryder as the mom, and created/written by the Duffer Brothers (Matt and Ross, who were also partially responsible for last summer's mega-twisty-hit Wayward Pines).
Oh, and you've seen the poster, right?
Can we just talk about that title design for a minute?
So many allusions are evident if you watch the two trailers Netflix has released, and it's understandable to miss one or two. But we couldn't help seeing a shout-out to John Carpenter's underrated 1983 (coincidence?) Stephen King adaptation, Christine.
We know, we know; it's obviously WAY more about Spielberg than Carpenter, if the trailers are any indication. Still, it wouldn't be a bad thing!
Watch Trailer 1 here:
And Trailer 2:
All eight hourlong episodes drop on July 15th, only on Netflix. We hear you can order Ecto Cooler on Amazon again, so you still have time to get your period-appropriate snack situation under control.
