Special Events

Part 1 of 3

Welcome!

You've discovered our stash of "Stranger Things" special events photos from season 1. Professional photographer Eric Charbonneau snapped many of these fantastic photos. I have about 112 pictures spread over three pages. This is the first page, and there's so much to see.

Here's what you can expect inside.

In this first part, we take you back to 2016. It is the red carpet world premiere of "Stranger Things". These great photos from the first season come courtesy of Netflix. Download and enjoy!. At the bottom of this page you'll notice a button that will take you to the next part. If you are having trouble downloading individual photos, scroll to the bottom for instructions.

Don't forget, you can also rotate your device to landscape mode and expand the images!

Wow! How things have changed.

So much has changed since 2016. First thing you probably noticed is how different everyone looks. I'm not talking only about their physical looks. Their fashion-sense has matured as well.

How to tell the Duffer brothers apart.

Having never met the brothers Duffer, I had to figure this one out myself. Matt Duffer is the one with the streak of silver hair in his bangs. And he usually parts his hair to his right. But what happens when they both have a head full of silver hair? Check back with me in a few years.

And what about the stage.

Earlier in 2019, David Harbour commented that 'hardly anyone' showed up for the 2016 premiere of "Stranger Things". You can certainly see that in these photos. But also notice the setting. Compared to season 3's World Premiere (which you can see here), this is a very basic set-up. Is it obvious that even Netflix wasn't too sure about how well "Stranger Things" would go over with its audience? I think so.

Who is that guy?

The gentleman you see on the far right of the picture above is Ted Sarandos. You'll see him in a lot of pictures and at many other Netflix events. Ted is the company's 'Chief Content Officer'. He's mainly responsible for spending Netflix's massive ($6B USD annually) budget for content.

There he is again.

Remember Ted Sarandos? If you're looking for someone at Netflix to thank for making "Stranger Things" possible, Ted's your guy. Likewise, if you need someone to blame for cancelling your favorite show, Ted's your guy!

Dr. Brenner.

That's Matthew Modine next to Hopper (David Harbour, actually). If you're under 25 you probably don't know that Matthew is known for more than just his work as Dr. Brenner on "Stranger Things". In fact, Matthew has more than 100 credits to his name in both TV and movies! Check out his IMDb page.

Shawn Levy.

Certainly, "Stranger Things" is a large part of Shawn's life, but did you also know that he produced an Academy Award winning movie? In 2017, 'Arrival', starring Amy Adams and Jeremy Renner, was nominated for 8 Oscars including Best Picture. It won for Best Achievement in Sound Editing.

Just one more thing...

We source series' screengrabs ourselves. And our on-set production stills come directly from the distributor. The result, then, is high-quality photos for you. If you're going to use them on your website, please give credit where credit is due.

Did you know...

Clicking a photo loads it in a gallery so you don't have to scroll. But doing that means you'll miss out on my witty and (sometimes) factual commentary. Oh, and if you're on a mobile device, you can swipe-up through the pictures without tapping. And if you want a closer look, tap the photo and zoom in. Easy peasy.

How to download...

If you're on a desktop or laptop, right-click on the image or picture you want to save. Then click 'Open image in new tab'. Then, go to that tab. Right-click on the image, and save it to your computer. If you're on a mobile device, lightly press down on the image and wait. In 1 or 2 seconds your device will give you several options from which to choose. Tap 'Save Image' and follow the instructions given by your device.

Before I forget...

This is a small, but dedicated site which explores binge-worthy TV and movies. I don't stream, but I do offer loads of information, reviews, pictures and scripts. Best of all, it's free! I try to add more and more each week. Thanks for being a part of our community of binge-watchers.
