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.

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 »
