It Review #2: Fear Is Unleashed with Pennywise's Triumphant Return

However, Muscheitti - as did the mini-series producers - misses a chance to create a great horror movie villain.

I'd actually be happy if more studios took this approach when remaking films for a quick cash-grab.

Warner Bros has released a featurette for their new take on Stephen King's classic novel IT, which introduces the heroes of the story: The Losers' Club. This is not only due to superb acting, but also because of Muschietti's excellent direction throughout the entirety of the film.

The film only centers on the first half of the book, before the children return to Derry as adults.

"By using the red balloon to represent fear of fire or fire itself, we are tapping into generating potential behaviour change through the use of emotions and protecting those we love the most - our family, pets and home".

Meanwhile, some analyst had gone a little ahead to predict that the Andy Muschietti-directed vehicle has a shot at $70 million.

The most pervasive manifestation of "It", Pennywise the Dancing Clown (Bill Skarsgard), is what even people who know nearly nothing about "It" will recognize, but Pennywise isn't what makes "It" so great. 60% said they would "definitely recommend" IT.

The massive new water attraction is a zero-gravity slide complex that packs two extreme slide thrills into one attraction. The ride will be located in the Mardi Gras section of the park, where King Chaos was removed on August 27.

More on It Chapter 2 as we learn it! Unlike the 1990 version, this movie does not delve into the characters when they grow up and have to battle Pennywise again.

The more clowning around "It" does, the less scary it is.

This is especially true for the Losers Club, a group of friends who are social outcasts and the most obvious targets on the playground - not to mention easy pickings for a diabolical monster.

A notable difference between the TV remake and the film is the era in which it is set.

Furthermore, the snappy, comical dialogue between the young cast - coupled with a cool 80s soundtrack - offers moviegoers some much-needed reprieve from the menacing villain that lurks around the corner.

PostTrak information from comScore showed that audiences polled after the previews largely loved this latest version of Pennywise. If you have even a remote interest in having a blast at the cinema with your pals, go and watch this movie before even reading the rest of this review.
