Stephen King's It Movie Header

Stephen King’s IT
Directed by Andy Muschietti
Written by Chase Palmer, Cary Fukunaga, and Gary Dauberman
Starring Bill Skarsgård, Jaeden Lieberher, Jeremy Ray Taylor, Sophia Lillis, Finn Wolfhard, Wyatt Oleff, Chosen Jacobs, Jack Dylan Grazer, Nicholas Hamilton, Jackson Robert Scott
Warner Bros. Pictures
Release date: September 8, 2017

The first adaptation of Stephen King‘s novel It was a 1990 mini-series starring Tim Curry as the child-eating monster. The ambitious project from director Tommy Lee Wallace tried in vain to fit all 1,100 pages of King’s epic novel into two 2-hour blocks and the results were a mixed bag. The first half is nearly universally beloved thanks to some great child acting and Curry chewing the scenery and stealing nights of sleep as Pennywise the Dancing Clown. The second half focuses on the adults 27 years later returning to stop the evil again and it falters heavily from cheesy overacting and a universally “be-loathed” giant spider ending.

Coincidentally, it’s 27 year later, and Mama director Andy Muschietti took what worked back in 1990 and focused an entire film on it with Stephen King’s IT.

‘It’ Trailer: This Cursed Town Has Got A Serious Clown Problem

Pennywise It Trailer

Clowns are pretty much at the top of the list of things to be afraid of. Though they can bring laughter with slapstick comedy, but one can’t get over the fact that there is something truly terrifying about them as well. Which is why coulrophobia — the fear of clowns — has been popularized in pop culture. And we owe a great deal of thanks to Pennywise from Stephen King‘s novel It for manifesting those fears of clowns.

A brand new adaptation of It, from Mama director Andy Muschietti, is just a few more months away, and now WB has released a new trailer that brings back all those fears we thought we suppressed. Check it out here below.

Lip Sync Battle Stranger Things

Lip Sync Battle has become a television staple on Spike TV drawing celebrities into outrageous battles where they mouth the lyrics to hit songs while living out real life music videos. Based off the hilarious sketch on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, LSB has hosted top celebrities from Dwayne The Rock Johnson, to Channing Tatum, to Oscar winner Anne Hathaway doing a legendary turn on the wrecking ball for a Miley Cyrus cover. On May 25th, hosts LL Cool J and Chrissy Teigen welcomed the cast of one of 2016’s biggest breakout hits, Netflix’s Stranger Things. Instead of a one on one showdown where each performer “sings” twice, this time it was a fatal 4-way featuring Finn Wolfhard (Mike Wheeler), Noah Schnapp (Will Byers), Gaten Matarazzo (Dustin Henderson) and Caleb McLaughlin (Lucas Sinclair) each performing one lip sync hit. For fans of Stranger Things and Lip Sync Battle, this was as entertaining an episode of TV you can get.

Check out some of the performances below.

New ‘Stranger Things’ Season 2 Details & Images: Secrets, Psychological Damage, and Waffles
eelyajekiM   |  

Stranger Things Season 2 First Look

Aside from all the movie TV spots we saw during the Super Bowl this past weekend, there was a huge preview for Stranger Things season 2. It was pretty much the highlight of all the ads. Of course, we still know very little, if anything, about the new season. That’s because much of the plot has been wrapped in a cocoon of secrecy. No one is willing to reveal any details. And rightfully so, it only adds to the mystery and intrigue of the show.

We’ll likely learn more in the months leading up to its Halloween premiere. As we saw in the preview, season 2 will definitely live up to its title. It looks as though it will get bigger and go darker. And now we are finding out a little bit out the direction its going in, and seeing some new images. Find out more on where Stranger Things is heading and see the images below.
