The Stranger Things monster gets a cameo.

One highlight from Sunday's Super Bowl was the Stranger Things commercial, which not only debuted footage from season 2, but announced a premiere date: Halloween 2017. The 37-second teaser trailer features a nod to 1980s pop culture (Ghostbusters), Eleven opening a door to a fiery hellscape featuring the monster from some drawings we see just seconds before. (This monster bears a little resemblance to the aliens from Arrival) We are then told: "The world is turning upside down."
