Oh shit. It's actually st in the 80's? That's awesome. I thought it was going to be modern and "updated".

Now I'm interested.

Is the kid in the glasses one of the Stranger Things crew?

Haha during my second or third viewing of the trailer, I thought to myself "I might just have to watch this in a cinema". Nice dark, empty, theater.

The trailer didn't show too much of Pennywise's interactions with the kids. This one just seems a lot more "serious" scary. Pennywise from the TV movie series scared the hell out of me because he was always acting a little bit silly at first and then toward the end of whatever he's saying he would slowly start getting more and more scary. I always loved that. This new Pennywise seems like he's more "regular scary" instead of "silly but terrifying".

What I just wrote probably doesn't mean much to you guys but in my head, it makes perfect sense.

He's a full grown clown living in the sewer system handing balloons to children while telling them about another world in the sewers where everybody floats, is a menacing dialogue delivery really necessary at that point? Razz

‘It’ Trailer Scares Up Worldwide Traffic Record In First 24 Hours With Near 200M
Within 24 hours of its CinemaCon debut on Wednesday, the trailer for New Line/Warner Bros. upcoming Stephen King feature adaptation It smashed global traffic records with 197 million views, blowing past the previous record of 139M set by Universal’s The Fate of the Furious back in December.

New Line released the trailer for the Andres Muschietti-directed horror film in English along with 30 localized versions starting at 9 AM Wednesday (watch it here). Of its 197M global views, more than 81M views and over 1.8M shares are from the U.S. Facebook instances alone. Within hours after its release, the It trailer became a viral sensation, trending across Facebook and Twitter and rising to the top of the Reddit Homepage with 30K-plus “up” votes in four hours. The video quickly rose to the No. 1 position on YouTube’s trending videos and remained there throughout the day.

The trailer helped It trend globally on Twitter with trends for It, It Movie, Pennywise and the Red Balloon Emoji all appearing.

Based on the 1986 novel by King, It follows seven children who are terrorized by the eponymous being, who exploits the fears and phobias of its victims in order to disguise itself while hunting its prey. It generally appears as a clown, Pennywise, in order to lure young children.

It opens on September 8, the weekend after Labor Day — which has been a hotbed for Warner Bros in the past with the opening of Clint Eastwood’s Sully ($35M) and the Steven Soderbergh thriller Contagion ($22.4M). The pic starring Bill Skarsgård is produced by Dan Lin, Roy Lee, David Katzenberg, Seth Grahame-Smith and Barbara Muschietti.

‘IT’ Sequel Will Have Flashbacks to the Horrors of 1989
In New Line Cinema’s IT, in theaters September 8, 2017, a group of young kids face their biggest fears when they seek answers to the disappearance of children in their hometown of Derry, Maine. They square off against an evil clown named Pennywise (Bill Skarsgård), whose history of murder and violence dates back for centuries.

The kids in peril, the Losers’ Club, include Jaeden Lieberher, Finn Wolfhard, Jack Dylan Grazer, Wyatt Oleff, Chosen Jacobs and Jeremy Ray Taylor.

The adaptation of Stephen King’s novel is too much for one movie, which is why it has been split in two. In the recent interview with Variety, director Andy Muschietti shared plans for the sequel, while also revealing that it will flashback to the first film.


“We are doing that [two films],” explained Muschietti. “We’ll probably have a script for the second part in January. Ideally, we would start prep in March. Part one is only about the kids. Part two is about these characters 30 years later as adults, with flashbacks to 1989 when they were kids.”

Does this mean the entire cast could be returning? Unless IT flops hard this coming fall (spoiler: it won’t), Muschietti confirms that work on the sequel is already well underway. If cameras were to go up in March the sequel could be in theaters as early as summer 2019, which gives us two years to speculate what’s coming next.

According to the British Board of Film Classification, IT will clock in at 135 minutes, or two hours and fifteen minutes for the chronologically challenged. That comes as good news for fans of the source novel and its 1,138 or so pages, roughly half of which will be covered in this first outing. The run-time gives plenty of big-screen real estate to establish the strong personalities of The Losers and develop the lifelong relationships that form among them. That’s a necessity not only for the story told in this part but for the inevitable sequel that picks back up with the Losers as adults.

LOL, you don't expect a movie about a clown who eats children to be popular in 2017? Never underestimate the amount of Coulrophobics who also hate children that are out there.

'It' Sequel Plans Move Forward at New Line
Even as New Line prepares for the Friday opening of its much anticipated adaptation of Stephen King's It, the company is moving toward a second movie based on the massive horror novel.

Gary Dauberman, one of the screenwriters on the new It, has quietly closed a deal to pen the screenplay for its sequel, and Andy Muschietti, who directed the new film, is waiting in the wings to return, although no deal is in place.

Producers Barbara Muschietti, Roy Lee, Dan Lin, Seth Grahame-Smith and David Katzenberg are expected to return as well.

A sequel, or, as its being called, a Chapter Two, was almost never in doubt even if the involvement of some of the creative players was.

King's opus tells of a group of friends who band together to defeat their small town's demon — first as kids and then a second time as adults. While the book toggles between the young and older characters, New Line structured its adaptation so that the first movie focuses on the kids and is set in the past, with the second movie to be set in the present and will focus on the adults. (In the book, the past was the 1950s; the movie's past is the 1980s.)

The new version of It has been building massive awareness ever since the first trailer exploded to 197 million views across all platforms in its first 24 hours. When the movie appeared on box-office tracking sites in mid-August, it looked as if it was heading for a debut of more than $50 million. Now some box-office observers predict it may open to more than $60 million, an excellent number for a movie that has a budget in the mid-$30 millions. Reviews have been generally strong, with the movie currently sitting at a 90 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

But even as late as a few weeks ago, the creative team was not yet set to return.

On the writing front, the first movie is credited to Chase Palmer, Cary Fukunaga — who was only weeks from shouting "Action!" as director before leaving due to creative differences — and Dauberman. The latter came in after Fukunaga to retool the project, bringing in a fresh perspective just after Muschietti was hired.

Dauberman has, in the last few years, become a New Line favorite, having written Annabelle and its hit sequel, this summer's Annabelle: Creation, as well as the upcoming The Conjuring spinoff, The Nun.

It is unknown if Chapter Two will call for the return of the first movie's young stars. Sources indicate that although the story will take place 27 years later, flashbacks may figure into the plot (just as they do in the book), and if those scenes are new, not repurposed ones from the first chapter, new deals may have to be struck with the rising stars. With no script in hand yet, New Line has not yet approached older actors.

New Line has not set a release date, although 2019 is likely, and if child actors are to be involved, the studio will have to move quickly before they grow out of the roles.

Stephen King’s ‘It’ Beats ‘Deadpool’ With Whopping $13.5M In Record-Setting Previews;
$90M+ 3-Day Possible
The strength of the Stephen King brand just proved itself as the R-rated It‘s Thursday showings delightfully horrified crowds, grabbing hold of $13.5M in previews that began at 7 PM. That means it nabbed the largest horror pre-show gross ever, the largest R-rated preview as well as the largest Sept. preview and the biggest ever for a movie based on a a Stephen King book. And no surprise as it was in 3,500 theaters which is basically the same number of theaters Deadpool had for its full weekend release. So Warner Bros. knew what they were doing here and basically began It‘s weekend run on a Thursday. Gotta ask, at what point is it no longer a ‘preview’?

It — which rolls out to 4,103 theaters today — could run past $90M and some trackers are looking at $100M. Regardless, the box office that has been limping along is now is supercharging September as It will, indeed, continue to break records.

Deadpool, which was released Feb. 15, 2016, had a preview of $12.7M and ended its three-day weekend with $132.4M in its 3,558 theaters. But Deadpool also opened during the President’s weekend holiday. The R-rated superhero film from Fox also had the benefit of 374 Imax and 475 PLF screens.

It opened in select international Imax theaters already (basically opening day and date stateside). Stephen King’s It opens in a total of 615 Imax openings globally and of those screen 389 are playing the horror film domestically.

To put that It‘s preview number in perspective, Stephen King’s The Green Mile grossed $18M in its three-day weekend in 1999 and The Dark Tower just opened to $19M. Friday morning takes are already approaching the full FSS of Green Mile, and we have yet to really see the horror audiences packed into audience late tonight.

It is releasing outside of any holiday weekend, was not a superhero film and had literally no stars to promote which makes its preview results all the more impressive for New Line Cinema and Warner Bros. Genre audiences usually come out for preview audiences and the horror audiences traditionally love their Friday late night moviegoing so we’re expecting a very, very strong night.

We are also going to have many markets underwater from Hurricane Irma after Hurricane Harvey already wrecked Houston with theaters closed or closing right and left.

Props also to It director Andy Muschietti (Mama), who if readers remember, split over creative differences on The Mummy years ago. Maybe The Mummy execs should have listened to him? Just sayin’.

In terms of other comps, Jordan Peele’s Get Out grossed $1.8M at 2,240 theaters from showtimes starting at 7 PM and M. Night Shyamalan’s Split grabbed $2M in Thursday night previews in 2,295 theaters. However, both bowed early in the year. Get Out went onto to gross $33.3M for its three-day opening weekend when it bowed in February of this year to end its domestic run with $175.4M and a global take of $252.4M. Split scared up a FSS of $40M before ending its run at $138.1M; globally it nabbed $276.9M.

20th Century Fox’s Logan pocketed a big $9.5M in its previews to chalk up the third highest for an R-rated preview after record holder Deadpool ($12.7M) and The Hangover Part II ($10.4M from midnight shows). Logan was released in early March and after that strong preview it ended up trampling all competition to take No. 1 for with an $88.4M debut weekend.

The Hangover Part II was released during Memorial Day by Warner Bros. in 2011 and took in a total gross of$85.9M in its three day.

Let’s face it, Stephen King is the brand that has been pushing audiences to this. That, and a smart marketing campaign.

It is also doing far and above the normal social media activity for the horror genre with a social media universe (SMU) totaling 273.2M breaking out as 35.5M Facebook fans, 7.9M Twitter followers, 225.5M YouTube views and 4.1M Instagram followers, according to RelishMix. The typical horror film has only a 61.2M SMU by opening week and It has over 273M.

According to PostTrak, most of the audience came after watching the trailer on YouTube, so let’s look, specifically, at YouTube.

It‘s YouTube views are racking up over 97K daily when the typical horror film’s daily views is usually 32K. What’s impressive about this Andy Muschietti (Mama) directed film is that it’s achieving this activity with a cast is dominated by child actors and a non-social star (Bill Skarsgard). In fact, horror author Stephen King alone is driving the activity.

The elements that tied all of these efforts together was the imagery of the yellow raincoat and the red balloon and the tagline You’ll Float Too.
Open Roads Films

We are awaiting grosses still on Home Again, the Reese Witherspoon-starring romantic comedy from Open Road Films which has a large core female audience. The film, which has drawn mixed reviews, is considered counter-programming in a weekend that will all but be chased out of theaters by a crazed clown with a red balloon. It was directed by Hallie Meyers-Shyer and also stars Lake Bell and Michael Sheen. It started previews at 7 PM.

A comp for Home Again‘s comp is Bridget Jones Baby, the romantic comedy which was released during a similar time last year (on Sept. 16) and had preview numbers of $364K previews and a Friday night of $3M before ending its three-day at $8.2M. Bridget Jones Baby played at 2,208 theaters also with shows starting at 7PM.

In the social media universe (SMU), RelishMix reports that Home Again has a social media universe of 33M, well below the 47M typical for a romantic comedy in its opening week. The SMU consists of 4.5M Facebook fans, 2.9M Twitter followers, 10.2M YouTube views and 12.2M Instagram followers.

Home Again has 4.4K daily YouTube video views when 17K is typical for the genre. There are not any notable social efforts to speak of, but it is strong on convo as Witherspoon is a draw and is engaged and sharing materials to her nearly 17M fans and followers.

The other film releasing this weekend on a moderate release is 9/11 which stars Charlie Sheen, Gina Gershon and Whoopi Goldberg from Atlas. It had no previews.

Holy shit, in mid-August I posted how It was rumored to open in $50-$60 million range and now three weeks later they're expecting $90-$100million for an R Rated HALF of a horror film starring children and a serial killing immortal demon clown!?!??! Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked

BTW, It was made on a $35 million production budget.

I wonder what kind of bring name talent they'll be able to bring in for the adults after these kinds of numbers.

Wow! That is impressive. I know the majority of the cast are children but I wonder if kids will actually go to see it. If so it could definitely help with those numbers.

I feel like as soon as the studio sees the opening numbers they're gonna want to franchise this into three films and since the book was over 1200 pages they wouldn't be lacking the source material to do it. Pennywise is a creature of time after all and his origins could be explored at any point.

I hope they don't go for big names. They won't need them to bring in box office and there a some great actors that constantly fly under the radar.

Getting some good reviews. My likes run pretty much along the lines of the guys at Bloodbath & Beyond when it comes to horror lficks, and they had nice things to say.

When I say names I'm not talking like a Cruise or Pitt type name, I should have clarified I meant great character actors like a John Hawkes or a Ben Mendolsohn, guys you don't see attached to horror projects. but could be lured by a great script.  

I will however say that I am not the least bit opposed to Jessica Chastain for Beverly Marsh. Cool

Also, It's opening weekend is now projected to come in at over $120 million for it's 3 day opening weekend and that is still with two major states going through hurricanes.....Double the best studio projection of 3 weeks ago. Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked

‘It’ Launches With Monster $179 Million at Worldwide Box Office
It” is terrorizing the box office all over the world.

Warner Bros. and New Line’s adaptation of the Stephen King book is launching to $179 million worldwide, including a record-breaking $117 million North American debut. The movie is taking in an impressive $62 million from 46 territories abroad.

“It” was directed by Andy Muschietti, who is already being courted for another installment. Bill Skarsgard stars as Pennywise the Clown, who terrorizes young children in Derry, Maine. The rest of the cast includes Jeremy Ray Taylor, Sophia Lillis, Finn Wolfhard, Wyatt Oleff, Chosen Jacobs, Jack Dylan Grazer, Nicholas Hamilton, and Jackson Robert Scott in supporting roles.

The R-rated horror pic took in $12.3 million in the U.K., accounting for 82% of the market there. Other top territories include Russia ($6.7 million), Australia ($5.9 million), and Brazil ($5.6 million).

But while “It” is the most exciting new release of the weekend, it is not topping the international box office charts. That honor goes to “Spider-Man: Homecoming,” which is stringing in $71.8 million from 47 territories. Most of that sum comes from the $70.3 million it’s earning in China. Hollywood movies have greatly benefitted in the past few weeks from the Middle Kingdom lifting its summer blackout period, which reserves theatrical releases for home-grown films, like the massive success “Wolf Warriors II.” “Homecoming” has now earned well over $800 million — its worldwide total will be $823 million after this weekend.

Otherwise, “Dunkirk” is closing in on $500 million worldwide after picking up an additional $13.5 million from 52 territories abroad. And the Tom Cruise vehicle “American Made” has yet to open in the states, but $8.1 million from 43 international spots raises its foreign total to $33.4 million so far. Other top foreign earners are “Annabelle: Creation” ($8.6 million) and “The Hitman’s Bodyguard” ($7.9 million).

I'd really like to see it soon but considering the second half of the movie is still two years away, I don't think I'll be in a hurry but depending on streaming availability I'm flexible.

Unlike American Assassin which comes out next week and is only the second title all year I'm looking forward to since War for the Planet of the Apes, which I also still haven't seen.

It continues to break records drawing $8.8M yesterday which is the highest Monday that the month of September has ever seen. Previous Monday high in September was The Sixth Sense‘s Labor Day Monday of $6.37M back in 1999. In addition, in a matter of hours, It will be the highest grossing Stephen King movie of all-time at the domestic box office, surpassing the $136.8M take of 1999’s The Green Mile.

It will pass $200 worldwide after only four days in release by the end of box office closure today. It also pulled $11m on Monday and Tuesday which is unheard for September and especially for a horror film.

The original miniseries is turrible. I remember it scaring the hell out of me and giving me serious Coulrophobia as a child but I recently revisited it and that ending was total garbage and completely different from the novel in a massive way and the rest of it wasn't that much better, they told a 1200 page story over 3 hours in the early 90's edited for television. I hear the second movie is going to stick to the craziness of the book so I'm looking forward to It: Chapter Two.

Same. I tried to give the original a re-watch back when I heard Fukunaga was attached to this. I lasted about 30 minutes. It was fucking terrible.

Probably why this was one remake that no-one ever complained about being made. Everyone knows the original was shit and doesn't come close to holding up over time.
