‘Stranger Things 3’ Trailer: Turns Out Eleven Closing the Gate to the Upside Down Was a Bust (Video)

Oh, and the Starcourt Mall doesn’t look safe at all

Remember when Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) closed the gate to the Upside Down once and for all at the end of “Stranger Things 2” and everything was fine again in the fictional town of Hawkins, Indiana? Yeah, turns out that was apparently a bust, as the trailer for “Stranger Things 3” proves *something* bad got locked out when Eleven locked everything else bad in.

“You let us in and now you are going to have to let us stay,” some ominous voice says in the 2-minute, 51-second video, released Thursday. Huh? Who is “us”?!?

We then see Eleven, Mike (Finn Wolfhard), Dustin (Gaten Matarazzo), Lucas (Caleb McLaughlin), Max (Sadie Sink), Will (Noah Schnapp) trying to get to the bottom of that question, with Will saying, “What if he never left? What if we locked him out here with us? He’d want to attach himself to someone again. A new host.”

Then the video immediately cuts to a shot of Max’s older Billy looking creepy AF — and, uh, we don’t know what to make of that.

The rest of the preview is a swirl of carnival shots, scenes in the new Starcourt Mall (which is apparently a not-so-safe place to hang), Jonathan (Charlie Heaton) and Nancy (Natalia Dyer) on some summer adventure, and Joyce (Winona Ryder) and Hopper (David Harbour) trying to protect the kids from whatever threat is looming here. The summer of 1985 looks dangerous!

Plus, we get another quick intro to Steve’s Scoops Ahoy co-worker Robin (Maya Hawke).

The trailer ends with that ominous voice proclaiming, “We’re going to end you. We’re going to end your friends. And we’re going to end everyone.”

“Stranger Things 3” launches July 4 on Netflix.
