‘IT’ Drops Two Creepy TV Spots

For a split second Pennywise sounds like Scooby-Doo, and some how that makes him even creepier.


Just take all of my money, seriously Warner Bros. just take it all. In all honesty I can’t remember a better marketing campaign for a movie, then what Warner Brothers is doing for IT. Not in a long time that is, everything they are doing is damn near perfect, from the posters, trailers and now two incredible TV spots. Every time something new drops for this movie, I find myself watching it over and over again, and it is now my most anticipated movie of 2017. That’s right, me a nerd, I want to see this movie over Star Wars and Justice League, I really didn’t think that could be possible, especially when it comes to Justice League, but I think IT is shaping up to be a truly special movie.

I can’t remember the last time I went to the theatres to watch a horror movie. They don’t really do it for me, but recently horror movies have been drifting away from the extreme gore, like the SAW franchise and kind of come back to its roots, by making genuinely scary movies. I just get excited whenever new footage or a new photo gets released and that’s really rare for me, that is only the case for certain movies, and I’m thinking that this is shaping up to be an all-timer for me, like one of my favourite movies ever. That’s a pretty bold statement to make, but I just have that feeling, that I’m going to love the crap out of this thing. This movie kind of holds a special place in my heart, and the 90’s TV mini-series almost ruined my childhood. But The Goonies, Stand By Me, Lost Boys, even Stranger Things, these are the types of things I love. It almost takes you back to your childhood and makes you almost want to go on an adventure with your friends, even if that adventure entails you going up against a crazy child eating demon clown, but none the less, these movies always remain to be about friendship. IT seems to be all these movies and TV shows rolled into one, and it’s actually going to terrify people, I know that much. There’s just something about Pennywise sitting with a children’s choir singing “kill them all” with the biggest smile on his face, that makes me terrified and actually makes me laugh. That’s how you know they really got Pennywise right. I could maybe do with just a little more footage, but nothing to drastic, they have me and I’m pretty sure everyone once sold on it. September 8th can’t come soon enough.

New ‘IT’ Trailer Is Amazing. 

Everything we see makes me realize just how special this movie is going to be.

So a new IT trailer just dropped and it’s just incredible. Everything so far in terms of marketing as been pure perfection. As a fan of the television mini-series from the 90’s, when I heard they were making this into a full length movie, I was super excited.

This time around, we finally get our first great look at Pennywise The Dancing Clown. He looks incredible in my opinion, I know it’s vastly different from Tim Curry’s look but I’m glad they went with sometime extremely different. I guess this is closer to how he is described in the book, so that should make the lovers of the book happy.

I think the casting for the Losers Club is great. The banter we get in the sewers was top notch. With Eddie and Richie really stealing the show. Still not a single word has been spoken by Pennywise, which I think is the smart way to go. Keep us in the dark about the way he will speak, and maybe have him say some dialogue in the final trailer. I can’t wait to see what they role out next!

Check ya later.


Let’s Talk About the ‘IT’ Trailer 

The Losers Club and Pennywise are back and it looks terrifying as hell

(Warner Bros.)

Boy does this trailer bring me back, to being scared shitless of clowns. The 90’s adaptation of Stephen King’s novel IT is getting a makeover this year and the first official trailer has just dropped. Even the poster that was released yesterday is simply incredible, the way they hide Pennywise behind the balloon is really smart, and super creepy.

One thing is for certain this isn’t the 90s TV adaptation that’s for sure. This looks horrific, and I get a sense this time around Pennywise might not be cracking to many jokes. Tim Curry managed to blend comedy with horror perfectly when he suited up as the dancing clown back in the day and now Bill Skarsgard is on deck and from the little we got to see in the trailer, I think he’s going to make Tim proud.

This was a fantastic trailer, and what a movie trailer should be. They didn’t give away too much, teased us with Pennywise, he didn’t even have any lines of dialogue which I was kind of pissed about but understand why it was done. He looks so scary and the last 10 seconds of this trailer are straight up what nightmares are made of. They obviously had to change the look of Pennywise for this and the first pictures that were released were met with mixed reviews, well now seeing this in the flesh and in action I couldn’t be happier with it. All the kids in The Losers Club seem scared out of their minds, and the tagline “what are you afraid of?” is awesome, because Pennywise is known to bring out your worst fears and make them into a reality.

IT made my most anticipated list, and after watching this trailer a boatload of times I’m even more excited for the final product. Having a September release date makes me a little worried because that is usually a garbage month for movies after the long summer blockbuster season, but I will remain hopeful until its release. Looking forward to seeing some kids get straight up murdered, sorry not sorry for saying that, it will be bloody and grotesque and I can’t wait.
