Castle Rock Trailer

“You have no idea what’s happening here, do you?”

At the tail end of New York Comic-Con this weekend, Hulu has unveiled the first Castle Rock trailer that actually features footage from the series executive produced by J.J. Abrams and set in the fictional location that has been the setting of many Stephen King stories over the decades. It doesn’t really tell us what the series will be about just yet, but it does tease plenty of Stephen King characters and Easter eggs that will be present. Read More »

It director interview

Bill Skarsgard‘s small roles in movies like Allegiant and Atomic Blonde didn’t leave much of an impact on me, but after seeing his terrifying take on Pennywise the Dancing Clown in the new adaptation of Stephen King‘s It, he certainly has my attention. Director Andy Muschietti saw something in the young actor’s audition that no one else did, and together they crafted a new version of Pennywise that’s frightening, otherworldly, and truly feels as if you’re watching evil incarnated.

At the film’s press junket last week, I participated in a roundtable interview with Muschietti and Skarsgard and spoke with them about this updated Pennywise, casting the Losers’ Club kids, and one of Skarsgard’s acting choices as Pennywise that particularly fascinated me.

Stephen King's It

Audiences heading to see Annabelle: Creation this weekend (which is surprisingly good) will be treated to a sneak peek of the upcoming adaptation of Stephen King’s It. The preview consists of an entire scene, one of the most iconic moments of the book, and it sets the stage for what promises to be an unsettling adaptation of the classic horror novel.

For those of you who may not be into the scares of The Conjuring universe spin-off prequel (that’s a mouthful), we’ve already seen the scene in question, and provide a reaction to it below. Plus, if you’re looking for a new glimpse at Pennywise the Dancing Clown and the kids known as The Losers Club, you can see two new images from It down there as well. If you come with us, you’ll float too! Read More »

Now a new image of Bill Skarsgård as Pennywise the Dancing Clown has surfaced, and it’s our best look yet at the preferred form of the frightening entity.

Hear Pennywise Speak in New ‘It’ TV Spot

'It' TV Spot Shows Off Bill Skarsgard's Pennywise Voice

The titular It in It has been somewhat absent from the teasers and trailers leading up to the movie’s September release — or at least his voice has.

While the creepy clown is a striking figure in the background of the Losers’ Club’s misadventures, (until he suddenly becomes a horrifying menace that attacks them), he has remained fairly silent. But the newest TV spot for Stephen King’s It has Pennywise the Dancing Clown speaking his longest line of dialogue yet. And it’s as eerie as you’d expect.

Stephen King's It Trailer - Pennywise - It Footage Reaction

Pennywise the Dancing Clown is an unlikely horror movie icon, mainly because he has yet to appear in a horror movie. Many people know him from Stephen King‘s classic horror tome It. Many more know him from the 1990 TV miniseries adaptation, where he was played so memorably by the great Tim Curry. So, how does a 2017 big screen version of It take on a character so familiar (and so frightening) to so many people? Simple: you reinvent him/it from the ground up.

With this new version of It, director Andy Muschietti and actor Bill Skarsgård deliberately set out to create a version of Pennywise that feels nothing like Curry’s performance. In many ways, it looks nothing like the version described in King’s work, either. This Pennywise (actually the favorite form of an ancient, shape-shifting monster that preys on children) looks to reinvent the “scary clown” for a new generation of moviegoers.

When I visited the Toronto set of It last year, I saw firsthand just how different this Pennywise will be…and courtesy of the filmmakers and Skarsgård, learned just how this unique take came into being in the first place.
