Yeah. Like in the new way they try to use the same fast-moving sudden jerk stuff to 'scare' you.

I'll watch it bc my 5 year old wants to. *shrug*

Wait. Is that terrible emo Stranger Things kid gonna be in it? Forget it.

Don't forget the original book is over 700 pages! Can't do much in 2 hours.
I believe the first movie follows the kids and the second follows their adult story.

The book is in my top 5 of all time. Think it will be a tough road to get it to the book level. The first one sucked compared to book. I will still see it though.

It (2017), aka Part 1 – The Losers' Club.

Part 2 is already confirmed, and will focus on the adult half of the novel.

IMDB shows a Sep 8 U.S. release date.

It just looks miscast. The young adults just look like they took the first ones to audition and I particularly disliked the kid playing Richie, who seemed to be aping Corey Feldman. Connect the dots, that's bad on several levels.
Then the Pennywise portrayal.... just bad. Make that awful. A buck toothed short and dumpy Pennywise... no. Yeah, he looks creepy, but creepy isn't always scary. He reminds me of some geek you'd see at a mall arcade or comic book store. Annoying, but not taken seriously.
A lot of times creators can have too much creative input in movies when their best days are well behind them. Gene Roddenbery, George Lucas, Steven Spielberg, I'd add Stephen King to that list. I hope he didn't have much to do with this project, but I suspect he did.
Just thinking about the TV miniseries, that looked way better on just about every level.

King has very little involvement with the film and TV adaptations of his work. He sometimes shows up onset to shake hands and stuff, but has little actual creative involvement. The only ones he was heavily involved in were the made-for-TV movies Storm of the Century (excellent!) and The Shining (good).

I never really liked the TV version of IT. More campy than scary.

book movies are different for me - i have to read the book first. it's a thing. already read ready player one. there hasn't been a stephen king book film that i haven't read before hand - of course they were read years before they even thought of bringing it (not this it) to the silver screen, or vhs tape. i've read it (this it) and since it was so long ago (decades, published in 1987), i am going to reread it.
