The Shadow Monster Looms Over the “Stranger Things” Poster

The new poster for Netflix’s “Stranger Things” Season 2 has it all from an enormous Shadow Monster to what look to be infected pumpkins.

Last week they gifted us with a spooky new trailer from the second season that’s just five days away from hitting the streaming service. It’s time to stock up on Eggos.

“It’s 1984 and the citizens of Hawkins, Indiana are still reeling from the horrors of the Demogorgon and the secrets of Hawkins Lab. Will Byers has been rescued from the Upside Down but a bigger, sinister entity still threatens those who survived.”

The cast includes Paul Reiser, Brett Gelman, Linnea Berthelsen, Dacre Montgomery, Will Chase, Rob Morgan, and Sadie Sink. They join the returning Finn Wolfhard, Millie Bobby Brown, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, Natalia Dyer, and Charlie Heaton.

    I don’t like it. It gives away too much, the monster, and the drawings are pretty off. They haven’t done a good job with all the posters/visuals for the marketing campaign for season 2, but they did great with the video-footage on Instagram. The only good/great poster for season 2 is the one with Will opening the door of his house – THAT should be the official poster for s2. It’s spooky, special and differs from the one of s1.
    Hope they learn for the marketing of s3, cause Stranger Things is pure awesomeness and just deserves better

      i agree that artist renderings of the cast is REALLY off/bad (especially Will!).

      • Lars

        That’s what I mean. Almost everyone looks totally silly. Eleven doesn’t even look like Eleven. The artist tried hard, but for me it looks like one of these unnecessary variant covers of the first issue of a new comic-book series.

        In my first post I forgot about the poster with the boys on their bikes on the road. That was cool too

      Let’s see why do movies and shows come out with literally 100’s of different posters? Go on EBay or Mondo and see how popular the movie poster business is.

    “I Don’t like it”…seriously? This poster is pure awesomeness. Best one yet

  • dukeblues

    All these Stranger Things posters etc. are a little heavy handed. I think we all get it now, it is all about 80’s nostalgia. Don’t get me wrong, I am a child of the 80’s and loved the 80’s, but still…..

  • J Jett

    i like this poster although Will looks bizarre (i assume unintentionally).

  • Dennis Giles

    I don’t know how this show never got cancelled it’s terrible.
    Relies too heavily on other shows/music.
    Cover art will not save this garbage !!

    • Jeff

      You don’t know why the show isn’t cancelled? Do you think because it’s one of the highest watched show on Netflix. There is nothing wrong with a good troll post especially if you can get people to take the bait but your comment is just stupid. I mean that’s like me asking why is Orange is the New Black or whatever that show is not cancelled. I know it’s the most popular show and all so I think they need to cancel it.

      • Dennis Giles

        What are you waffling on about ?
        “Trollpost” ..I have my opinion the same as you have yours !
        “Orange is the new black ” ??? You fucking drunk ?
        Get a grip and reply with a bit more common sense dipshit.
        Remove the whole 80’s theme and references this show is barely so-so.
        As for trying to revive M.Modine and Winona Ryder’s careers ..forget it !
        Seen more passion and acting in Bob’s Burgers !
        Busy watching “Mindhunter” and “Mr Mercedes at the minute.
        Hope that’s okay with you ???

        • Jeff

          Your not stating opinions. I think your response says it all on your stupidity. Orange is the New Black is the highest rated show on NetFlix followed by Stranger Things. Also by being on the second highest show on NetFlix most would say her is career is back. Do you know how big Netflix of course not because mom pays for the internet. You know I’m right because your comebacks will be offensive and not pertain to the comments at hand.

          • Dennis Giles

            Wow 2nd “mom” reference.
            Stick to your Goonies/Stand By Me clones..
            Awaiting next numb-cunt “mom”reference.
            Perhaps all used up eh ?
            Dip-Shit !

          • Jeff

            Why you so upset? Next time don’t make your comments look like they were wrote by a troll.

        • Jeff

          Also fact there is no acting in Bobs Burgers. See what I mean you don’t state opinions just idiotic comments that don’t make sense. You said how Stranger Things isn’t cancelled which again is a very stupid statement. I don’t like Orange/Black But it’s obvious why the show isn’t cancelled. Stay off mommy’s internet.

        • Jeff

          Also Netflix is bigger than cable and if your on the second most popular show I’d say your career is smoking. Fact dumbshit not opinion you B movie hack.

    • Jeff

      Your probably one that thinks Force Awakens was a good movie. Yeah you have some real good taste.

    • Jeff

      No you shouldn’t have an a opinion as you bought a Hellraiser box set with movies 2 being mediocre and 3 being complete shit. You waste money like that yeah your opinions are B movie shit.
