The Duffer brothers premiered a new Stranger Things trailer at Comic-Con, to the delight of fans and cast members alike. The new footage from the second season of the hit Netflix series was so fresh that it was the first time any of the cast had seen it, and they and the audience gave it a standing ovation, Mashable reported.
The trailer begins with Will Byers and friends doing what kids their age did in the 80s: playing video games in an arcade. But something is amiss, and Will Byers knows it. As he turns from his friends to look outside, a premonition flashes. He sees the Upside Down covering everything and a giant spider-legged creature much larger than the Demogorgon looming over Hawkins, Idaho. Yup, things are still strange in this small town. Meanwhile, Eleven appears to be stuck in the Upside Down.
"Nothing's gonna go back to the way it was," Sheriff Hopper warns ominously. "Not really."
The trailer brilliantly uses Michael Jackson's Thriller and Vincent Price's spooky voiceover to set the mood, and it worked. Time to start counting the days until the premiere of season two on October 27.
