When the film was released in Germany and on the heels of the bizarre controversy in Russia concerning the Ronald McDonald/Pennywise complaint, Burger King Deutschland took it upon themselves to tease their rival, McDonalds, by giving an impromptu message at the end of the film that reads, "The moral is: Never trust a clown" which is accompanied by the Burger King logo. The audience were left bewildered and amused. It was joked that the film became the longest Burger King ad ever. See more »
Bill's bicycle named "Silver" has an inconsistent black marking on its right side. For example, it is there at about 70 minutes into the film, but 20 minutes later it is missing, and also seems to be a slightly different bike. See more »
Remakes are usually the dumbest way to explore the success of a great film. However, "It" (2017) is not a bad movie; indeed it is a good remake of the first part of the original "It". The storyline is the same but the screenplay was rewritten. In the original film, the seven lead characters are adults meeting each other in Derry. Their childhood is told through flashbacks where the viewer learns their experience with the evil Pennywise when they were children and their pact to return to their hometown if necessary. "It" (2017) is linear and tells the same story of the seven bullied children since the disappearance of Georgie, ending with their pact to return to Derry. Now there will certainly be another "It" with these characters adult. Sophia Lillis, Jaeden Lieberher and Bill Skarsgård have extraordinary performances. My vote is seven.
Title (Brazil): "It: A Coisa" ("It: The Thing")
