Stephen King’s IT hits the big screen in September and the trailer is giving me the creeps.

 

Loved the book! The 1990 TV mini-series was awful, except for Tim Curry’s terrific performance of Pennywise. Not getting my hopes up for this film but with any luck they learned lessons from the TV adaption. At the end of the day, a two and a half hour movie cannot capture the detail of an 1,100 page novel so we’ll see how it shakes out.

I read my share of King books in my earlier days but never that one. Looks like the kids have been directed well. 


Hey there goes Alex. He's loaded with money. Wow he's really set himself up great.

I'm hearing rumors that this only covers the portion of the book where they are kids. And that there will be It 2, that picks up from when they are adults. Can anyone confirm?

The Stand was my favorite...this runs a close second.

I thought the miniseries was okay. A little schmaltzy in areas but the worst was the ending. This looks interesting but unless they fix the end, pass.


They said I could be anything, so I became a disappointment.

Totally agree. They changed the ending from the book and it was terrible.

Not much out there, but I see no signs of the adult "Losers Club"

I kind of feel like reading "It" now but I'm too busy posting to Counterparts.

Stephen King’s It is horror at its most unconventional. The new film’s trailer is the exact opposite.
Is the film leaning into modern horror clichés, or is the trailer just badly edited?

In a way, seeing through It’s trailer is a trick like seeing through It itself. You’ll need to look carefully at the onscreen images and dialogue, ignoring the way they’re being enhanced through editing and audio, to see how well the movie is recapturing your childhood terrors — and how faithful it’s being to King’s original vision.

 

 

 

  Im going to check it out for sure just because im a FAN of S.K.
