What up Geeks!
I’m not going to lie, I absolutely love Steven Spielberg! He’s my favorite director of all time! There’s something about his early work that makes me feel like a child again, so anytime a new project comes along that channels that look and feel of the early 80’s Spielberg magic….I’m all in! Well….the new Netflix series ‘Stranger Things’ by Matt and Ross Duffer channels a whole lot of Spielberg!
Starring Winona Ryder and a handful of talented kids, the show tells the story of a lost kid and his group of friends who are searching for him. The trailer looks like it was ripped straight out of my childhood…..bmx bikes and all! I’ll be devouring this show the minute it debuts on Netflix!
Premieres: July 15th, 2016
99 out of a hundred times, the missing kid is with a parent or relative. What about the other time?
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.”
Until next time,
