There is something coming on this 4th of July. And for the wisenheimer out there, no, I don’t mean just the 4th of July. Call it an event. Call it a happening.
But whatever you do, call it what it is:
Strange. Strange things. And then even stranger things as found in the brand new trailer for ‘Stranger Things 3.’
The setting for’Stranger Things 3′ looks like polished 1980s nostalgia gold before seven kinds of chaos is unleashed. Season one felt akin to a Spielberg film with childlike wonder and otherworldly forces whereas season two had a dark, gritty Stephen King touch. Makes sense, considering the elevator pitch for ‘Stranger Things’ was Steven Spielberg meets Stephen King.
And now season three, which will drop on Netflix this 4th of July, seems to be made in the vein of any high school movie or TV show with storylines that take place in the quintessential mall of the ’80s. Now add a terrifying creature like ‘Alien’ and we’re all set.
4th of July TV watching guide:
‘Independence Day’ during the day and a ‘Stranger Things 3’ binge at night with Eggo waffles on the menu.
