Comic-Con Buzz: 'Kingsman: The Golden Circle' Panel, 'Blade Runner 2049,' New 'Avengers' Art

just now | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Comic-Con International got its 2017 edition off to a roaring start today with an extended look at Kingsman: The Golden Circle, but even before that began, selected attendees enjoyed an advanced look at a trio of hot horror titles last night.   It Known as "Preview Night," Wednesday evening provided an opportunity for horror-movie fans to get excited as three upcoming thrillers were previewed. It came first. Based on Stephen King's massive novel, the movie was directed by Andy Muschietti, who presented a new clip (after an introduction by King). Then the young stars were introduced and they presented another new clip, featuring a brief look at the evil Pennywise (Bill Skarsgard), followed by a new trailer. We're hoping to see these all videos soon. It...

Sdcc Poster For It Floats Online; Joe Hill Says Adaptation Is Among The Scariest Films Ever Made

6 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

When New Line’s It movie creeps into theaters in two months’ time, it’ll join the horror pantheon.

At least, that’s according to Joe Hill (son of the great Stephen King), who took part in a recent Q&A session to field all manner of questions about Andy Muschietti’s two-part adaptation. It’s not your typical book-to-screen translation, given how Muschietti plans to release a sequel in the not-so-distant future to revisit the Losers Club 30 years after the fact, when they decide to bring an end to Pennywise’s reign of terror once and for all. It’s an ambitious, somewhat unconventional spin on a novel many consider to be among King’s best, so with that in mind, consider us on board.

Stick a pin in that one for now, because with Sdcc getting underway in San Diego, New Line is in attendance to promote its »

Newswire: Everyone’s pretty psyched about the new It footage you can’t see

6 hours ago | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Comic-Con has begun teasing the attendees of its 2017 gathering with the sorts of exclusive footage and behind-the-scenes tidbits meant to stoke anticipation for upcoming movies and TV shows. But nothing gets the heart racing and the pulse pounding quite like hearing all about the kinds of jaw-dropping imagery unveiled in the big convention, and be subsequently told, “Oh, but you can’t see any of it.” Because if there’s one thing proven to be true, it’s that the entire world adheres to The Matrix philosophy: No one can be told what something is, they have to experience it for themselves. (Except for Joe Dirt, which is a garbage film you do not need to watch.)

And everyone who managed to crowd into a room last night to see a few new scenes from the upcoming big-screen adaptation of Stephen King’s It seems to have come away »

Andres Muschietti Confirms His Return For It Sequel, Explains Pennywise Casting Choice

7 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

There are few upcoming horror films generating levels of anticipation as high as those associated with It. Though it’s not due to arrive in theatres until September, the trailers so far released have proved incredibly popular, and even Stephen King himself is apparently happy with the project. But horror movies are notoriously difficult to predict in terms of box office success, which is why It, in particular, poses such an interesting prospect in terms of sequels.

The source material for the movie – the famously controversial novel written by Stephen King – is a vast, spine-chilling tome, and when it was last adapted for the screen, it was as a television movie in two parts. The first focused on a group of children trying to fend off a shape-shifting, child-eating demon that often manifests as Pennywise the Clown, and the second part focused on the same group as adults, returning to face the same monster. »

Get excited for The Dark Tower and It with our Stephen King supercut!Get excited for The Dark Tower and It with our Stephen King supercut!Adriana Floridia7/20/2017 10:28:00 Am

Stephen King is a master of horror, and the films made from his books are some of the most iconic in history.

We're beyond excited for two new movies this year, both based on his work. The Dark Tower is getting its first film adaptation with Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey in leading roles, and It is getting a remake (the trailer is already giving us crazy chills).

While one film is about an alternate post-apocalyptic reality and the other is about a scary clown, we know that no matter what it is, if Stephen King is involved, it'll be epic. Check out our supercut of Stephen King adaptations below, and look out for The Dark Tower when it hits theatres Friday August 4th, »

It director reveals that the second movie will likely shoot next year

15 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

When Warner Bros. first began developing its adaptation of the Stephen King horror classic It, the initial plan was to shoot it as a single film, before the studio decided to go down the same route as the TV miniseries, splitting the book in two and following the Losers Club as children in the first movie, before catching up with them as adults in the sequel.

Since then, we’ve heard very little about whether the studio intends on sticking to the two-movie format, while director Andy Muschietti has recently added a couple of projects to his slate in the Robotech movie and Locke & Key pilot., casting some doubt as to whether that remains the plan. However, the filmmaker has now revealed to Variety that the second movie is indeed happening, and will likely shoot in 2018.

“We are doing [two films],” said Muschietti. “We’ll probably have a script for the second part in January. »

Stephen King's It sequel set to start filming next spring

21 hours ago | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew Jul 20, 2017

The second of the two new films based on Stephen King's It will start filming next year.

The new film adaptation of Stephen King’s It, as you may already know, is being split into two films. The first is in the can, and set for release this September. Andres Muschietti has directed it, and he’s on board for the second film of the story too.

But when should we expect it? Glad you asked.

Muschietti has been chatting to Variety, and revealed that the plan is to get the next It movie moving properly next spring. “We’ll probably have a script for the second part in January” , he said.

“Ideally, we would start prep in March. Part one is only about the kids. Part two is about these characters 30 years later as adults, with flashbacks to 1989 when they were kids”.

If prep is kicking off in March, »

‘Dark Tower’ Director Nikolaj Arcel Joins Matt Damon’s Robert F. Kennedy Movie

19 July 2017 6:06 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Matt Damon’s Robert F. Kennedy biopic “Rfk” has picked up momentum as “The Dark Tower” director Nikolaj Arcel has signed on to direct Damon in the Warner Bros. project.

Arcel will direct from a script he co-wrote with Rasmus Heisterberg and Felipe Marino. Damon will produce with Jennifer Todd and Drew Vinton. Production is expected to start next year.

Kennedy ran the successful 1960 presidential campaign for his brother, John F. Kennedy, and served as U.S. Attorney General and top adviser to his brother between 1961 and 1963. He remained in the post for President Lyndon B. Johnson for several months after his brother’s assassination, then resigned to run for the U.S. Senate, representing New York.

Kennedy served until his assassination in June, 1968, while seeking the Democratic presidential nomination on a platform of ending U.S. involvement in the Vietnam War.

The last day of Kennedy’s life was recapped in the 2006 film “Bobby,” directed »

‘It’ Director Andy Muschietti Says He’s Coming Back for a Sequel

The hype for It is getting a little too real.

The Dark Tower gets a ‘Magnum Opus’ featurette, running time revealed

19 July 2017 4:30 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With the release of The Dark Tower fast approaching, Sony has unveiled a new featurette detailing the big screen adaptation of Stephen King’s magnum opus; check it out here…

Meanwhile, the British Board of Film Classification has revealed that the movie will run for just 95 minutes. That is likely to be disappointing to some fans who were hoping for an in-depth take on the saga, but as previously revealed, the movie will serve as a sequel – or rather “a canon continuation” – to King’s books, rather than a straight-up adaptation.

There are other worlds than these. Stephen King’s The Dark Tower, the ambitious and expansive story from one of the world’s most celebrated authors, makes its launch to the big screen. The last Knight Warrior, Roland Deschain (Idris Elba), has been locked in an »

Various Monsters in ‘It’ Will Be Very Different from the Book

19 July 2017 4:00 PM, PDT | bloody-disgusting.com | See recent Bloody-Disgusting.com news »

One of the bummers of the 1990 adaptation of It is that the titular monster was mostly in his Pennywise form throughout the entire thing. In Stephen King’s novel, however, “It” took the form of a homeless leper, a werewolf and even the shark from Jaws, appearing in different forms to different characters. We already […] »
