The It Losers Club Interview

Some kids spend the summer playing video games. Others go to camp. But for the young cast of It, the summer of 2016 was spent battling an evil entity that takes on the form of a clown so it can prey on the children of Derry, Maine.

And just about all of them called it the best summer of their lives.

When we visited the set of director Andy Muschietti‘s adaptation of Stephen King‘s classic horror novel last year, we were able to meet the entire “Losers’ Club,” the ensemble of young misfits and dorks who come together to battle Pennywise the Dancing Clown and its various other hideous guises. As you’d expect from seven young kids working on a horror movie set, they had stories to share…and no filter to keep them from being interesting.

It concept art

If you’ve experienced a mysterious, eerie feeling creeping up the base of your spine, it may be because the new movie adaptation of Stephen King‘s classic horror novel It is inching closer to release. Before Warner Bros. takes the film to this year’s San Diego Comic-Con later this month, a new batch of photos have surfaced – including some cool concept art – that shows the picked-on protagonists (aka the Losers Club) heading into the sewers to confront It, the ancient and evil shapeshifting entity who often takes the terrifying form of Pennywise the Dancing Clown.

Stranger Things Season 2

True to the Halloween release of Stranger Things season 2, the new season will be “darker and more eerie” than the first season of Netflix’s surprise genre TV hit.

The hints at a darker season 2 will keep coming — I’m pretty sure this is the 10,000th time I’ve heard it called “darker” —  but it wasn’t until now that the cast and crew of the ’80s-set horror show specified that much of that dark stuff happens to a specific character. Which, in this case, I’m not here for because we need to protect everyone on this precious show.

stranger things season 2 cliffhanger

The first season of Stranger Things captivated, baffled, and frustrated us — and the second season promises to do all that and more.

That includes upping the stakes on a cliff-hanging finale, which star Gaten Matarazzo (who plays the scene-stealing Dustin) promises the second season will end on. The first season, which had no guarantee for a sequel, ended on Will (Noah Schnapp) ominously vomiting up a creepy slug and Chief Hopper (David Harbour) leaving a box of Eleven’s (Millie Bobby Brown) favorite Eggo waffles out in the forest. Now with Stranger Things becoming one of Netflix’s flagship shows, a third season is definitely in the cards, and with that, there will most likely be an even more infuriating season finale cliffhanger. Hit the jump to learn about the Stranger Things season 2 cliffhanger.

Losers Club, It

I’m about 50 pages away from finishing Stephen King’s 1986 novel It, and holy crap, this book is tremendous. Without hyperbole, it’s one of the best books I’ve ever read. Rarely have I read a novel in which I’ve felt so firmly in the grip of a master storyteller – and I wasn’t crazy about the first Dark Tower book, so that praise isn’t coming from a fawning King devotee, either.

We’ve already seen a handful of photos from the upcoming film adaptation directed by Andres Muschietti, but a new batch of photos show off glimpses of the terrifying clown Pennywise (the “It” of the title) and our first look at the Losers Club, the group of outcast kids in Derry, Maine who come face to face with their worst nightmare.

Stranger Things Season 2 - Dustin, Mike, Lucas, Will

As we learned over the weekend, Stranger Things season 2 isn’t actually coming for another nine months. But Netflix’s marketing team seems determined to make sure you spend every day between now and then longing to return to Hawkins, Indiana.

stranger things stephen king's it

If Stranger Things reminds you of Stephen King‘s It, it’s certainly no coincidence. And it’s not just because the Netflix television series is inspired by (and an homage to) It and the author’s other ’70s and ’80s movie adaptations. You might be surprised to learn the show itself is a result of the upcoming It movie. The Duffer Brothers created Stranger Things because Warner Bros. wouldn’t let them adapt the book themselves.
