It box-office

The next Stephen King adaptation is on track to fare a whole lot better at the box-office than The Dark Tower. While the tale of the gunslinger, the man in black, and some kid floundered at the box office, the story of the Losers’ Club trying to survive in Derry, Maine is both a cheaper production and has generated far more advance buzz. A few weeks from its release date, It has a lot going for it, including some great marketing, nostalgia for the 1990 miniseries, and the King name. It’s no wonder the horror movie is expected to make a killing opening weekend.

Below, read more about the It box office tracking.

The It Experience

An empty parking lot once sat at the corner of Hollywood and Vine, but a two-story haunted house now towers above tourists as they traverse that intersection. This is The It Experience: Neibolt House Hollywood, an elaborate recreation of the house that will appear in the upcoming movie adaptation of Stephen King’s It, and we have video from inside.

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 »

Pennywise photo

After the disappointment of The Dark Tower, Stephen King fans are hoping that Andy Muschietti‘s movie adaptation of It washes the sour taste out of our mouths with a heaping helping of horror. 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.

pet sematary

Andy Muschietti is not done with Stephen King. The director of the new version of It, King’s famous creepy clown horror story that was originally adapted as a TV miniseries, has set his sights on resurrecting Pet Sematary.

But Muschietti still has a ways to go before he exhumes the corpse of Pet Sematary. He is still in the midst of his It adaptation, which will take place over two movies. He’s also attached to a big screen adaptation of Robotech. If Pet Sematary is indeed his next project, it will still be several years before you see it crawl out of its grave.

it tv spot

With The Dark Tower receiving almost entirely negative reactions (our own Josh Spiegel couldn’t believe how lifeless it is), Stephen King fans are probably ending their week in a sour mood. However, there’s a glimmer of hope on the horizon. That is, if you define “hope” as a shapeshifting entity that devours children and often takes on the appearance of a menacing clown named Pennywise.

Andy Muschietti‘s upcoming adaptation of It is a little over a month away from release and the marketing floodgates have begun to open. While some may argue that King fans need to stop getting their hopes up, I can’t help but be excited for this one. A new TV spot, and the news that four minutes of the movie will premiere in theaters next week, are only fueling the fire.

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.

It movie runtime

Reporting on movie runtimes is an inherently silly thing. It’s not really news, but let’s face it: we’re all curious about which superhero movie will test our bladder next, and we’re all ready to start yelling into the void about why a movie about robots that turn into cars needs to be that close to three hours long. But sometimes, a movie’s length can feel genuinely interesting and revealing, like when we learned that The Dark Tower was 95 minutes long and everyone started wondering why a movie based on a series of massive books was so short.

But we’re here to talk about the other Stephen King adaptation hitting theaters in the coming months, which also comes packaged with some interesting runtime news. We now know how long Andy Muschietti‘s adaptation of It will run and it’s certainly going to prove interesting to both Stephen King fans and horror buffs.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

It MPAA rating

It is the story of a shapeshifting monster that takes on the form of a clown named Pennywise so it can murder children. And yet, millions of people first encountered this tale as a television miniseries. In 1990. On ABC. To say that the beloved television adaptation was watered down from the source material would be an understatement.

For the new big screen adaptation of Stephen King‘s classic novel, director Andy Muschietti has embraced the R-rating, aiming for a version that can capture the uncomfortable darkness of the source material. During a set visit to the film’s Toronto set last year, he and producer Barbara Muschietti shared the details on why they’re embracing the rating…and focusing on practical effects whenever possible.
