Trailer drops Thursday.
I'm game. I liked the first one.
Stephen King has seen a cut of the film, and says it's terrific.
Also, the trailer drops tomorrow, noon, EST.
"Oh, of COURSE Stephen King will say it's good!".
He's hated most of the movies made of his stuff.
Most infamously, The Shining.
If he's dippy about IT 2, you can take it to the bank.
Stephen King is wrong about the film version of "The Shining."
Ohhhh yeeeahh, they're doing the old lady and the house.
“No one’s ever really gone.”
For real though, that was pretty scary.
I thought the first film was decent, but it wasn't scary in any way. But then again, I'm bored with most horror films. And let's face it, other than the kids' relationships with each other, IT was not a good book.
The new one? In what way?
While I have a soft spot for the TV version with Gary Sinise, it was too low-budget for it's own good with a shitty director. And it was too toned down for ABC TV (owned by Disney) in the 90's. I'd love to see a big-budget multiple episode take on the subject matter. The problem is casting Flagg. Jamie Sheridan was woefully miscast in the original. You need an actor who has the ability to smile at you and scare the living shit out of you at the same time. Someone like....
Ummm... Gary Sinise was in "The Stand", not "The Shining".
I kept wanting to post this, but never took the time to stop and take some pics.
So anyone familiar with the book, knows that Richie's encounter with It had a Paul Bunyan statue come after him. It looks like Chapter 2 references this.
So anyway, these statues are really close to where I live. And I drive by them pretty much everyday. If it wasn't for the book, they wouldn't be creepy. I sort keep expecting them to come after me.
And in the second pic, there's a headless clown on the ground.
I think Bill Hader is going to give a good performance in this one.

Stan is on the magazine cover, but not in the trailer. So yeah, Stan meets the same fate as in the book. And Eddie probably will too.
The flick is going to clock in at 2 hours, 45 minutes!
Damn, that's almost as long as the 1990 miniseries itself!
Well fuck me... I was planning on watching it in the theater, but may skip it now. That's three hours or more in a seat that becomes uncomfortable after an hour or so. Oh well.
My theater has electric recliners!
There's a theater around here that has similar seats, still it's a stretch to sit there that long. I still like to go to a theater, but a two hour movie is pretty much my limit.
So, what you're saying is that you need these.
In my day we had to sit in shitty theater seats for hours on end through three LOTR long ass epics, and we liked it.
No really, I am waiting for home video on this one. I don't think there is any benefit to watching something like this on the big screen. I am doing it in a dark room full of floating red balloons.
Being that the normal time for me to need the bathroom is right during the climax I have been tempted. I always try to piss during a boring moment, but it never fails something happens by the time I get back. Fuck you MCU, give me a bathroom break if your bullshit is going to last that long. At least have some sort of space station suction hose I can pee in at my seat.
Can someone explain the love for 2017's It?
I'm a King fan, and like a lot of his writing, but I saw the 2017 film and it sucked a bag of dicks... especially compared with the book. Not sure why the move is scoring 7.4 on IMDb. A cursory glance at the first 20 reviews or so on the site have it scoring less than 5/10.
Pervos dropping oysters over Beverly in the rock quarry scene?
Because you’re a douche bag, that’s why you didn’t like it?
Stephen King wrote an extra scene, and the kids in the flashbacks have been de-aged to how they looked in 2017.
Hmm, maybe this is how they can get around the kids aging in Shazam 2.
I never saw the first part of IT that came out a couple of years ago. Will I be able to figure out what's going on or will I be lost in the sauce here? I'm going tomorrow with my wife, who did see the first one.
