pennywise

Director Andy Muschietti’s film adaptation of Stephen King’s It doesn’t open until September and we haven’t even seen a trailer for the film yet. However, the rumor mill claims that the sequel is already gearing up for production. It does make sense: the film only adapts one half of King’s horror masterpiece, so the opportunity for a sequel is definitely there. Anyway, this all came about due to a new entry on My Entertainment World, which claims that the sequel is set to begin filming this month while offering this synopsis:

A promise made twenty-eight years ago calls seven adults to reunite in Derry, Massachusetts, where as teenagers they battled an evil creature that preyed on the city’s children. Unsure that their Losers Club had vanquished the creature all those years ago, the seven had vowed to return to Derry if IT should ever reappear.

Since we haven’t heard any casting news and since Muschietti is still finishing the first movie and since New Line doesn’t even know if the first movie will make any money, I’m going to call B.S. on this one for now. After all, the other half of the novel takes place 30 years after the events of the first film – it’s not like anyone is in a rush.

Wreck-It Ralph honest trailer

Wreck-It Ralph has found its first new voice actor in Ugly Betty star Ana Ortiz, who played Hilda Suarez on ABC’s show. More recently, Ortiz lent her voice to the popular Disney Channel cartoon series Elena of Avalor, which probably played a role in her getting this gig. She joins John C. Reilly, Jack McBrayer, Sarah Silverman, and Alan Tudyk, all of whom are returning for the sequel. While the first film was a loving tribute to classic and modern video games, the sequel will propel these characters into the internet.

We all knew that Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling was penning an entire series of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them movies, but there’s still something inherently exciting about her providing photographic proof that a physical copy of the next chapter in this series exists somewhere in the world. Buckle up – we’re going to be watching this series for a decade or so.

fate of the furious poster

The latest international poster for The Fate of the Furious is a photoshopped nightmare akin to rubbing sandpaper on your eyes, but that “family no more” tagline is surely going to give heart palpitations to fans of this series. And come on: that includes you, even if you don’t know it yet.
