1. Is this a remake? Thought that came out about 20 years ago.

8. Yes...the first was made for TV I believe...

Tim Curry played Pennywise. This one looks scary as hell...loved the book when I was younger, but there's a reason I hate clowns!!

The book, but the movie was disappointing.

4. Wow. That looks great. I wonder how it will work, turning the book into two movies.

Movie one is them as kids, and then movie two is them as adults. So you won't get the back and forth that is so effective in the novel.
Thanks for posting the trailer!!

6. Of all his novels that one disturbed me the most (in a good way).

The first movie was OK, hopefully this one will improve on

IT.

muhahha!!

14. For me the most disturbing of his books and movies

was "Lord Of The Flies" and that is because it is so close to how humans would really act in those circumstances. He really hits the true nature of humans in that one.

16. "Lord of the Flies" was by William Golding, not Stephen King eom.

10. This is the first movie.

Likely one more - but you know a studio can say a trilogy makes more money, if the first makes big money!

Like "The Hobbit" went to three.

11. Oh ok.

I hope they don't extend it into a trilogy or further andI hope they don't go for the money grab. Stephen King movies don't have the best track record as it is, but I am hoping that this one was done well.

Two full length movies are perfect for IT.

21. Agreed! It's hard to get 1138 pages into a movie but there's no need to get greedy.

13. IT is one of my least favorite King books.

I am a huge Stephen King fan, but I can't imagine how the OP read it in 48 hours as it was over 1000 pages - it felt to me like a mammoth catch-all clearing house for every stray story fragment King had floating around and it took me forever to read (and I can inhale a novel when it grabs me). Absolute same for TOMMYKNOCKERS which started with the most intriguing premise. But I know a lot of people love the King mega-novels.

I'm a bigger fan of the novels when King limits himself somehow to rein in the focus, like in THE SHINING or GERALD'S GAME or DOLORES CLAIBORNE. I tried to read the reissued and uncut THE STAND and had the same issue and gave up going "I see why this was edited down..."

This movie appears like it might be stripped down to focus on the "clown" storyline, which will probably make a compact and tense popcorn flick.

19. I really can't say why IT and Tommyknockers grabbed me like it did.

I read IT over the weekend and I literally couldn’t put it down. I was hooked on Tommyknockers when she found that metal object in the ground and started digging. Other books by King can take forever to get through.

I actually prefer King's shorter stories like in Skheleton Crew but The Shinning is probably my favorite.

15. It has been so long since I have read IT and seen the first movie.

I have actually been waiting for them to figure out how to do a good movie or movies or expanded television series on "The Dark Tower" but it would have to have the same care that was used for "Lord Of The Rings" or it would never make it. I am a very large Stephen King fan. I also like his comments on trump. Maybe he will write a horror story about him.

22. I could not get a trailer to come up.

Wow. Is it a movie or am I going to have to miss out because I can not afford HBO or Showtime or any of those other movie channels? I absolutely love "The Dark Tower" series. I am strange but I kind of consider it the Bible of Stephen King.

30. Are they going to squeeze the entire series into one movie?

They were talking about Jake and Jake does not show up until the second book "The Drawing Of Three." I am dying to see the trailer also.

The TV version was very well done. This one looks even better. I wonder if the clown hysteria last year has a connection?

29. Tim was the best and that's why I was a bit apprehensive

But this version looks super scary. When those slides started moving on their own and his face came into focus...

27. This story is one of my all time favorites. Some may dis the original TV mini-series but I watch it

at least once a year.

Tim Curry's Pennywise is perfection and I will judge any attempts to top it accordingly.

I will see this movie...100% for sure, though.

Stephen King's writings certainly hold up.
