‘IT’ Made A Lot Of Money
‘IT’ Made A Lot Of Money

 

After being relentless hyped for over year, it’s probably just a coincidence that IT made a lot of money by combining a well-known intellectual property and the 80s movie nostalgia that’s so hot right now. I can’t believe how they did it. Probably just a fluke.

The movie, based on Stephen King’s novel, shattered numerous records and set a new bar for horror films in opening to $123.1 million in North America and $185 million globally, by far the biggest launch ever for the genre.

My review of IT? It was aight. They turned Mike (the black kid) from the kid with the brains who figures out everything about IT into the black kid with the gun he doesn’t even get to shoot. But since there’s a black kid onscreen, this will be championed as “diversity”. They turned Beverly from the only kid in the group who can shoot a slingshot worth a shit into the chick who needs to be kissed to saved. They killed off the main villain from the second part of the book. The movie had a lot of LOUD NOISES and MUSIC CUES to let me know when I was supposed to be scared. I probably wouldn’t have known otherwise. Congrats?

 

Alexander Skarsgard is the greatest brother/hype man of all time:

‘Wonder Woman’ & ‘IT” Have New Trailers
‘Wonder Woman’ & ‘IT” Have New Trailers

 

Depending on who you ask, trailers for two highly anticipated movies dropped over the weekend or trailers for two movies dropped over the weekend. Here they are.

 

Wonder Woman

 

 

The trailer looks great. Gal Gadot looks great. Some of the shots looks great. It looks like 15 mins of the movie will be slo mo shots which isn’t great. I really, really, really want to like this movie. I really do. But DC is an abusive spouse that we all keep going back to hoping they’ll change. If this movie sucks, I’m going to get DC drunk and burn them alive in bed. I can’t take this shit anymore.

 

IT

 

 

This trailer also looks great. The book was a masterpiece. The acting looks great. At the same time, I know it’s very possible that everyone involved could easily fuck this up. For one, I don’t understand the Pennywise here. Pennywise dressed as a clown to lure kids. This Pennywise is not how you lure kids. I also don’t know if Pennywise is evil in this version because he was forehead-shamed as a kid. Maybe they’ll answer that.

It’s A Nah For Me On That ‘IT’ Trailer
It’s A Nah For Me On That ‘IT’ Trailer

 

A teaser trailer for IT dropped yesterday, and I’m not sure why it’s capitalized because it sound like a story about some dudes fixing your Internet. The new Pennywise is the dude from Hemlock Grove, so none of this seems particularly scary or whatever. Why they make his head so big? It also has the kid, Finn Wolfhard, from Stranger Things in it. “Finn Wolfard” is a badass name. The kid doesn’t seem to be. But clowns in the sewer or whatever? Yeah, that’s gonna be a no from me, dawg. I like sleeping at night. Be gone.
