First reports on the IT remake sound promising.

Guess I thought that an IT remake would have elicited more interest.

Not sure about the new clown look since, after all, the clown mask of IT was intended to be attractive to children. Perhaps the clown mask will morph from a more pleasing visage to the one shown in the trailer?

^^it may have elicited more interest had you named the thread "It Movie Remake" or something similar. Pennywise is also the name of a rock band.

The images for Pennywise came out a few months ago. It looked like a live action version of Syndrome from the Incredibles. I lost interest.

Tim Curry's Pennywise wasn't scary looking, not even that creepy, just offputting and gave you a strange feeling that something was out of place. Then when the monstrous things happened it made it more terrifying, because that could be just any clown. Making him look like a horror film creature from the beginning makes me think that effect will be lost.

I originally heard that they were doing just the first half, when the main characters were all kids. Then doing the adult stuff as a followup if enough money is made from the first. It's been a while since I've watched the original, but I seem to remember starting with adults and catching up the audience throw a series of flashbacks. Is the framing then out the window?

I had heard this might be a trilogy? However, I can't find that this is the case anymore, though it could depend on how well this does.

^^^I watched the original back around halloween and you're right, it takes place when they're adults, but maybe half of it or more is flashbacks to when they're kids (and that one done in three parts)

"If It succeeds, a sequel is already a definite possibility. The second half of King’s novel takes place decades years later and follows the same characters as adults as they return to Derry for another showdown with the monster they fought in their youth. As a huge fan of the book, I’m curious and nervous to see how Muschietti and his team tackles this dense, weird, and terrifying story, especially since the “adult half” of the book feels so vital to making the flashback scenes work on the page.

Gotta say, I dig that trailer. Seems pretty true to the book.

Some parts of the book though, they would absolutely be demented if they included.

And I really do hope they break from the book when we find out what Pennywise really is. Because for me, that ending (along with Revival's) was the biggest let-down for any King book I've read, and I'm pretty sure I've read them all.

This. No way they do the "coming of age" portion of the story line.

^ How did they handle that part of the book in the Curry tv version? I can't recall, been a long time since I've seen the tv version.

I didn't read the book, but I remember a scene from the original that almost hinted at the girl being raped by the clown by taking the image of the guy she wanted to be with. It didn't actually happen, but seemed like it was about to then she snapped back to reality.

The trailer does look pretty great, but I've learned not to trust them the last couple of years. I still wish their childhoods were slower reveals, as we got to know each character one at a time in the original movie and how each of their childhood's were ruined. But I am open to seeing the story unfold entirely from the kid's perspectives.

In my opinion, the back-and-forth between the two time frames (together with the farther back histories found in the Interludes) was critical to the story and the tension/horror it evoked.

Obviously a wait-and-see, but I believe that any effort to parse the film into separate time-frame intervals would be a significant loss to the story (albeit, internally, the events happened in chronological sequence).
