It Chapter Two early buzz

The Losers’ Club is heading back to Derry, Maine to face off against Pennywise the Clown (aka, IT) once again – this time, as adults. But can James McAvoyJessica ChastainBill HaderIsaiah MustafaJay RyanJames Ransone, and Andy Bean recapture the lightning-in-a-bottle chemistry of the younger cast from 2017’s mega-successful It? (Is such a thing even possible?) Is this sequel scarier than the original? And does the film earn its nearly three-hour run time?

The social media embargo has lifted, so you know what that means: time to round up some reactions into an It Chapter 2 early buzz article. Here’s what the critics are saying about director Andy Muschietti‘s newest horror film. Read More »

it supercut

Stephen King‘s It is a hefty book. There’s so much story, in fact, that both adaptations – the 1990 miniseries, and the 2017 and 2019 movies – had to split the material into two parts. But any reader of the book can tell you that It works best as one big epic story. Thankfully, it sounds like It and It Chapter Two director Andy Muschietti agrees – and he’s cutting together an It supercut containing both films. Here’s hoping we actually get to see this supercut, and that it doesn’t go the way of Quentin Tarantino’s never-released Kill Bill: The Whole Bloody Affair.

Stephen King's It - Losers Club

There’s always been a caution about working with kids in show business, mostly because some of them can be difficult to work with due to their penchant for simply being kids. But there’s another challenge that comes with utilizing kids who are on the cusp of hitting puberty, especially if you have a franchise of films, and that’s growing up. In the case of It Chapter 2, director Andy Muschietti confirmed that the Warner Bros. Pictures and New Line Cinema reserved money in the sequel’s budget to to ensure the kids looked exactly as young as they did in the first movie. Read More »

the flash director

It director Andy Muschietti is in talks to take over directing duties for the long-embattled The Flash solo movie. The film, which had come to a standstill over creative clashes between star Ezra Miller and former directors John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein, has been jolted back to life as Daley and Goldstein depart the project, while Miller stays on.  Read More »

The Time Machine movie

Andy Muschietti directed last year’s adaptation of Stephen King’s It, but Muschietti is no clown. He’s been able to parlay that movie’s record-breaking success into multiple new directing gigs, and now he’s lined up a brand new one: he’ll direct a new adaptation of H.G. Wells‘ classic time travel novella The Time Machine, and Leonardo DiCaprio is on board as a producer.

This project is so hot that competing studios have decided to temporarily put aside their differences and work together to bring it to life. Find out more about the newest The Time Machine movie below.

attack on titan movie

It director Andy Muschietti may have brought one of Stephen King’s most beloved books to life and received critical and commercial acclaim, but the anime game is a whole other story. It’s a genre that has felled the best directors, and even Muschietti’s distinctive visual flair may not prepare him for one of the most ambitious, weird, and grotesque popular animes to come out of Japan recently: Attack on Titan.

It: Chapter 2

I didn’t initially think splitting Stephen King‘s gargantuan novel It into two separate movies was a good idea, but the record-breaking box office numbers of last year’s It: Chapter 1 was proof enough that Warner Bros. made the right call…at least financially. Creatively? Well, that still remains to be seen.

The upcoming sequel will pick up with the Losers’ Club as adults nearly 30 years after temporarily defeating Pennywise, and while we knew things are going to get “transdimensional” in It: Chapter 2, some new quotes from the screenwriter have given us an idea of just how far into Crazy Town the filmmakers are planning to go. Will audiences be willing to go along for the ride, or will they reject the inter-dimensional weirdness at the story’s climax? Read More »
