It sequel release date

Andy Muschietti‘s creepy film adaptation of Stephen King’s It has become a box office phenomenon, earning the highest opening weekend ever for a horror film while also earning the biggest advance night opening for any R-rated movie and the biggest opening gross for any Stephen King adaptation. To put it simple, It‘s big. And it was only a matter of time until the proposed sequel, It: Chapter 2, received an official release date. And now it has one, set for 2019. Find out the It sequel release date below.

Thelma Review

Joachim Trier‘s Thelma begins with one of the most haunting opening scenes in recent memory. A young girl and her father trek out into the wilderness surrounding their home, crossing over a frozen lake and entering the woods. The father is armed with a rifle. When his young daughter isn’t looking, he takes aim at the back of her head. He hesitates. He doesn’t pull the trigger.

And then we leap forward a number of years and Thelma (Eili Harboe) is heading to university in Oslo and learns that something is wrong with her. Or right with her. Because Thelma has supernatural abilities. And like any kid heading off to college for the first time, she’s got some serious stuff to figure out.

anna and the apocalypse review

As a Scottish zombie Christmas musical comedy, Anna and the Apocalypse sounds like a joke. And for a little while, it feels like one.

Conceived as a High School Musical riff where the shambling undead arrive to wreak havoc on a more trivial teen movie, director John McPhail‘s film leans hard into comedy and irony in its first act. But like the 21st century’s greatest horror comedy (Edgar Wright’s Shaun of the Dead), the film finds its voice and its soul when it drops the wink and becomes a fully realized musical horror movie with actual stakes…and the nerve to literally tear its lovable cast to pieces.

Pennywise Featurette

For one generation, Tim Curry’s performance as Pennywise the Dancing Clown in the made-for-TV adaptation of Stephen King’s It will always be the first thing that comes to mind when they think about the character. But I’d venture to say with the popularity of director Andy Muschietti’s new film version of the classic horror novel, actor Bill Skarsgard‘s take on the shapeshifting entity is going to burrow its way into peoples’ minds and give Curry a run for his money in the long-term.

As It continues to dominate at the box office during its third week, Warner Bros. has released a new Pennywise featurette devoted to Skarsgard’s chilling performance. The video features interviews with the actor himself and the Losers’ Club kids talking about the first time they saw him in character, and you can check it out below.

darren aronofsky on mother f cinemescore

The “F” rating on CinemaScore is a dubious badge of honor that has been bestowed on few other films — which range from misunderstood, to mismarketed, to just plain terrible.

Few filmmakers would rejoice in an audience hating their movie, but Darren Aronofsky isn’t like many other filmmakers. The mother! director knows all about his film’s F CinemaScore — the lowest rating a film can get in a poll of audience reactions — and he embraces it. Encourages it, even.

Hello, /Film readers. It is I, Chris Evangelista. You may (or may not!) be familiar with my writing here, as I’ve been contributing to /Film since April. But now I’m part of the staff, and I’m very excited about that. I’m also very excited to tell you my 15 favorite movies. Some of these movies are downright masterpieces, others are like comforting junk food. I try not to limit myself in terms of “quality.” If a movie gets a reaction out of me, I consider it a success.  

I see a lot of movies. Too many, in fact. And what I’m always looking for is that spark. That feeling that I’m seeing something unique; something special; something to make me sit up and take notice.

This was a bit harder than I thought it would be, simply because there are so many movies I could include on this list, but these are the ones that I think are the most important. For now, at least. This list could easily change in a week.
