It Cruises Past $700 Million At The Box Office

If nothing else, It has certainly proven the point about the vastness of the spectrum of Stephen King adaptations. After all, the popularity of the author is by no means a guarantee of quality, as for every Misery or The Shining, there are several Dreamcatchers.

2017 has seen something of a Stephen King flurry across screens both big and small, though, with Gerald’s Game arriving on Netflix, and The Dark Tower and It both creeping into cinemas. While the former landed with a dull thud, It has planted its feet firmly in the realm of success – both critically and commercially.

Muschietti’s ambitious adaptation had been in development for some time before the director climbed aboard, but once he took the reins, he cast Bill Skarsgard as Pennywise – alongside child actors Jaeden Lieberher, Jeremy Ray Taylor, Sophia Lillis, Finn Wolfhard, Chosen Jacobs, Jack Dylan Grazer and Wyatt Oleff.

It’s surely this combination of performers,

Blu-ray Review – It (2017)

It, 2017.

Directed by Andy Muschietti.

Starring Jaeden Lieberher, Jeremy Ray Taylor, Sophia Lillis, Finn Wolfhard, Chosen Jacobs, Jack Dylan Grazer, Wyatt Oleff, Nicholas Hamilton, and Bill Skarsgard.

Synopsis:

A group of bullied kids band together when a monster, taking the appearance of a clown, begins hunting children.

I saw the original miniseries of It when I was 9 years old. I couldn’t sleep for a month and have never seen the film in full again since that viewing. After seeing various clips from the miniseries since then, I recognize the cheesiness of the acting, effects and some of the writing, but it was still too terrifying for me to ever want to fully revisit.

I never caught the new It in theatres, though I was curious to see it despite the fact director Andy Muschietti’s remake looked 10X scarier than the miniseries. After some hesitation, I finally sat down

Stephen King thinks the It reboot was so successful due to impeccable timing

Andy Muschietti’s It punched us all in the gut this past September. Honestly, when reading for the first time that Stephen King’s It was being remade into a feature film, who actually thought that it would be good?

For one, horror remakes tend to be fairly awful (we’re looking at you A Nightmare on Elm Street). Secondly, Stephen King adaptations have always been hit, or miss; see this years The Dark Tower for a great example of a Stephen King adaptation gone disappointingly wrong. Of course, then we started getting more information about It through promo’s, interviews, and word-of-mouth seemed good, and well… we know the rest.

It absolutely ‘killed’ it at the box-office this year, and Stephen King has a few ideas for what made the film so successful. Chatting with EW, the writer shared his thoughts:

“I think one of the things that really happened was that 1990 miniseries.

Pennywise Plays Peekaboo in Walmart's Exclusive It DVD Cover Art

Last month, it was revealed that the R-rated blockbuster It will be available on Digital HD December 19, with the 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray, Blu-ray and DVD slated for release on January 8, 2018. As is typically the case with many hit movies, there are several retailer-exclusives for It, and today we have a glimpse at the Wal-Mart exclusive artwork. Surprisingly enough, the Wal-Mart exclusive is DVD only, and not Blu-ray, but as you can see below, this artwork gives fans a new glimpse at the main villain, Pennywise.

The Target exclusive It cover was already revealed last month, although that retailer exclusive is both Blu-ray and DVD, and it isn't clear why Wal-Mart only has a DVD exclusive version. There will also be a Best Buy exclusive steelbook release, although die-hard fans may want to prepare themselves to pick up yet another version later on in 2018. Director Andy Muschietti confirmed that an

It: Chapter Two Will Likely Use Flashbacks To Incorporate The Young Losers Club

Part of what makes Stephen King’s It so unique – and so engrossing – is that the legendary auteur allows his Pennywise saga to unfold across two decidedly different eras: 1958 and 1985.

And though New Line toyed around with that timeline during the transition from book to screen – Andy Muschietti’s horror hit actually kicks off in 1988 – the 27-year time gap still applies, meaning It: Chapter Two will likely begin in the year 2015, by which point the Losers Club will be fully-grown adults.

It’s a flash forward that has raised a lot of questions in the casting department, and horror fans have been quietly rooting for Jessica Chastain to land the role of adult Bev. But what about those breakout stars that anchored Muschietti’s modern gem? Indeed, will they have a role in the upcoming sequel?

'It' Kids Cast Chris Pratt, Jessica Chastain and More in Dream Sequel (Exclusive)

The kids from It have some pretty genius ideas about which actors should be cast in the sequel.

Et caught up with some of the stars of director Andy Muschietti’s remake of the 1990 miniseries at a press junket for the movie's home entertainment release in Los Angeles on Thursday, where they revealed which celebrities they'd love to see portray their adult counterparts in It: Chapter 2.

Jeremy Ray Taylor, who plays the beloved Ben, says it would be awesome to see a certain Avengers star in the sequel, which will focus on the Losers' Club reuniting 30 years after their first encounter with Pennywise (Bill Skarsgård). Needless to say, we think it's perfect!

"Probably Chris Pratt," he exclaimed.

Seeing as his costar, Wyatt Oleff, worked alongside Pratt as young Peter Quill in the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise, this dream casting isn't too far fetched.

Jessica Chastain wants to play Beverly in It: Chapter 2

Jessica Chastain is on many people’s It: Chapter 2 grown-up Losers Club wish-list, and it appears that the actress is equally keen to play the grown-up Beverly Marsh in the blockbuster horror sequel.

Speaking to Screenrant, Chastain said “Well, I love Andy and Barbara. I worked with them on Andy’s directorial debut, you know, his film, Mama. His first film. And you know, Barbara is one of my best friends so… Listen, of course, I want to work… they’re my friends. They’re like my family. Anything that they’re doing I want to be a part of, so I hope we can make it happen.”

A sequel to Andy Muschietti’s It was a no-brainer after it became the biggest grossing horror film of all time, and casting Chastain appears to be a similarly easy decision for Warner Bros. to make.
