- We all float down here.
Apparently the second part relies on the success of the first.
I think the second part will be harder to do right, all the stuff about the Ritual of Chud or whatever it was called, and the killing of “It” was all a bit random. The manifestation of your fears killing everyone was far more noteworthy for film plots!Posted 2 years agoCountZeroMember
Trailer looks like it could be good but yet another remake? .. Is there a shortage of interesting books that haven’t yet been made into films or something?

Loads of interesting books that could be made into films, but it’s often down to playing safe, going for a known successful original to make all bright and shiny, or darker and scarier.
I would like to see a re-make of Damnation Alley, which was a really shitty film, but a faithful re-make could be a great Mad Max-type adventure movie. Roger Zelazney, author of the original novel, disowned the film, because it was a travesty.
I really want to see del Toro’s movie of Lovecraft’s At The Mountains Of Madness, which could be a really scary film, if Pan’s Labyrinth is anything to go by.jimjamMember
It’s in my post. It’s two parts, the second (dealing with the adult half) is reliant on the first being successful. A long wait no doubt.
Are you sure (I can’t be arsed googling). I read that Cary Fukunaga had originally intended to make a part 1 / part 2 format but the studio wasn’t sold on the idea and that was part of why he quit.
Regardless, the trailer looks ok. I don’t like the clown though, it looks like someone tried to design a clown themed movie villain/monster as opposed to just a disturbing/distrurbed clown. Tim Curry’s clown was a really plausible looking “normal” clown but he conveyed so much menace by…..well….acting good.

I hope they fix the ending.
There’s a couple of bits of the book which are err ‘problematic’ and I suspect won’t be included in any movie.
The central idea of the book is brilliant, but the ending did feel a bit unsatisfying when I re-read it recently.
As for the clown, Pennywise should be, at first glance, reasonably unthreatening and friendly to a child, after all, he’s luring them into the drains. This one is pretty menacing from the off.Posted 2 years agojonnyboiMember
The clowns aren’t happy.
That’s the problem with clowns, no sense of humourPosted 2 years ago
