it chapter 3

With the release of It Chapter Two, director Andrés Muschietti brings to a close the saga of Stephen King’s 1,000-page horror novel. But could there be room for a third It movie outside of Muschietti’s two 2-plus hour movies? Star Bill Skarsgård thinks so.

IT Chapter 2 Box Office

Pennywise missed all of you, but it sounds like you missed him just as much, despite his penchant for murdering children and adults alike.

The second place film, Angel Has Fallen, could only muster up $6 million, which Pennywise would surely laugh at while chomping on some popcorn and a small boy’s arm. Find out the rest of the weekend box office numbers below. Read More »

It Chapter Two Ending

“You said you liked the ending!” bemoans the writer Bill Denbrough to a snazzy Hollywood director working on an adaptation of one of his novels. “Yes, that was a lie,” the director says matter-of-factly, berating Denbrough for not having come up with a new ending that would greatly improve upon the old one. Denbrough, like the writer he represents, struggles with endings in a very meta way in the highly anticipated sequel It Chapter Two

Chapter Two is like a lot of sequels – even more of the same, with its blend of 80s-style adventure and horror that made the 2017 film such a big hit. But every time that Chapter Two dredges up the running gag about how Bill – and really, Stephen King himself, the author of the book inspiring the films – can’t figure out a good ending worth a damn, it serves as an unnecessary reminder that this whole film feels like an extended climax.

it chapter 3

Unlike The Hobbit or the final Hunger Games book, Stephen King’s 1986 novel It was actually long enough that splitting it into two movies was totally warranted.
