Stephen King ''IT'' Remake/Re-adaptation

Postby XxComablack1937xX » Wed Mar 29, 2017 6:03 pm

While the mini T.V. series was good for it's time and Tim Curry was fantastic as Pennywise this was long over-due for a Re-Adaptation.
It's based more solely on the Novel not the mini-series which aired on TV in the early 1990's.
Cast seems great, IT is terrifying as it should be.

This is my most anticipated movie of 2017 other then Alien: Covenant. What do you guys think?

Definitely liked the original mini-series of it. I'll give this one a shot for sure as I enjoy Stephen King's work, granted I don't this will top the classic one.

The trailer was actually horrifying, it's one of the few horror movies that a trailer actually makes me want to go see it. IT was already an amazing mini-series and novel, but this looks like the directors know what they're doing. I love this trailer so much, especially the..

Spoiler:
..projector part.


I need to see this movie as soon as it comes out.

Instead we're left with the gritty, cold world of Hollywood and apocalyptic visions of nightmare creatures.

The first mini-series wasn't scary. While this looks more serious, it came 18 years too late for me. Not too interested.

The trailer looked great, I wasn't really liked the images that were released before but this has made me interested again in this.

That trailer was hilarious. The pratfall at the beginning completely ruined any atmosphere it had. In fact, I've noticed a lot of faithful Stephen King adaptations have a problem being unintentionally hilarious. Or maybe I'm just not viewing his writing in the right light.

I do like the production values, though. Most horror movie are no-budget affairs, so ones like this, Life, and Alien: Covenant are very much appreciated. It's a shame horror movies aren't financially successful enough to warrant movies like Guillermo del Toro's At The Mountains Of Madness.

IT trailer sets a new record, 200 million views within 24 hours.... Very impressive, you would expect that from a blockbuster like Fast an Furious but congrats to IT i hope the movie breaks records

The first images and an actor acting like a total brat over social media because people were criticizing the hilarious over-edginess got me off the wrong foot. Now I don't need to see this one. Oh well. :lol:

Started reading the novel last weekend in prep. VERY long winded Stephen King, but moderately enjoyable so far. I'm really warming up to this new film as well.

Me too, I think it has the potential to be a great movie. People love the original TV Movie but other than a amazing performance by Curry it didn't have a lot going for it. The perfect movie to do a remake of.

Hopefully there's more to be afraid of in this film than

If you have read the Novel and seen a lot of behind the scene photo's, it's def a lot more graphic then the first esp with what happens to Georgie.
That an the Leper scene, which is just insanely creepy in the book and will be in this film. Plus the director himself has also confirmed Pennywise will not be hidden like less is more. When he is there he's there in full in all his glory.

Balloons is more like showing Pennywise is there, much like the Jaws theme. The shark is there, but instead of asking where? You'll be asking what form since Pennywise is a huge shape-shifter.

Transforming from things like Dracula, The Mummy, Creature from the black lagoon, leeches even the shark from Jaws. Not saying these will all be in the film but there's a lot from the Novel that this film can offer.

Yeah, I knew that the balloons signified the presence of It. But the problem was that I didn't even find It to be that scary, even when I was 8 years old.

Creepy? Yeah. Actually terrifying? Not really. He became more comical as the miniseries went on. If this movie is to surpass the previous attempt, it has to avoid falling into that trap.

I remember reading that It is going to transform into new monsters that are much scarier than the old ones.

How are you guys on a Godzilla message board and forget to mention that IT transformed into Rodan at one point in the novel?

I highly doubt that scene will be in the film, but it is being made by WB... who has the rights to Rodan now too. So the potential is there.

Edit: I hope one thing they take from the original mini series is leaving the Outer Space origin and the rival Turtle out of the movie. I always thought they were dumb.

I much rather have IT just be this mysterious force that nobody knows where it came from, or why it's going what its doing.
Don't try to be something else. Don't try to be less. Great things are going to happen in your life. Great things. And with that will come great responsibility.
