It Sequel To Explore Pennywise In More Depth

4 September 2017 10:40 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

While the recently released Stephen King adaptation The Dark Tower was met with critical and box office disappointment, the future looks very bright for the upcoming It, which is directed by Andy Muschietti and written by Chase Palmer, Cary Fukunaga and Gary Dauberman. Early previews have generated some extremely positive reactions and as such, even before it’s actually reached general audiences, attention has already turned to the prospect of It 2.

The television miniseries of the classic Stephen King story consisted of two parts – reflecting the way in which the format of the source novel sees 12 year-olds battle demonic clown Pennywise, before heading back for a rematch thirty years later.

Tim Curry's Pennywise dominates the first screen adaptation of Stephen King's It. Fancy a lookback?

The film: When several children are murdered in the town of Derry, Maine, the local librarian Mike Hanlon (Tim Reid) calls his old friends, Bill Denborough (Richard Thomas), Beverley Marsh (Annette O’Toole), Ben Hanscom (John Ritter), Eddie Kaspbrak (Dennis Christopher), and Richie Tozier (Harry Anderson). Plaguing Derry is a mysterious entity they call It, which manifests as childhood fears, including the form of Pennywise the Clown (Tim Curry). The friends defeated it thirty years earlier and return to Derry to fulfil their promise and finish the job.

Another slight bend in the rules this week with the It mini-series, but with a new adaptation on the way and the 1990 version’s considerable reputation, it’s not one I felt I could miss out. Stephen King »

Ghost World

26 May 2017 4:56 PM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

Daniel Clowes’ comics creation receives an A-Plus film adaptation through the directorial filter of Terry Zwigoff. The show has more going for it than the bleak alienation of disaffected quasi- gen-Xers — the script offers a depth of character revealing the insecure, hopes and fears behind all the insulting attitudes and behaviors. It’s caustic, funny and also strongly affecting.
