We’ve been talking about it for so many years that it’s hard to believe that the remake of Stephen King’s It is actually upon us now. After going through a series of writers and directors, they finally landed on Andy Muschietti (Mama). There have been a couple of photos released over the past year, but a trailer will finally arrive tomorrow. Muschietti has been counting down its arrival on Instagram.
The film itself stars Bill Skarsgård as Pennywise, and it will actually come in two movies: One set in 1989, which will follow the main characters — a set of kids in 1989 — and another movie set 30 years later following the same kids as adults dealing with the reoccurrence of Pennywise.
Ahead of the trailer, however, there are a few new photos to whet one’s appetite for the film, which arrives on September 8th.
You will not have to wait until September to see Adam Sandler’s next Netflix movie, Sandy Wexler. It will be here in three weeks, just in time for Easter. (Jesus was going to finally make his triumphant return, but changed his plans after looking at the Netflix schedule). I don’t know what’s more terrifying: The trailer itself, or the collection of Sandler friends who agreed to be in it. Poor Jennifer Hudson: The Sandler curse will be the end of her career.
Based on movies like this, Netflix recently signed Sandler to another four-picture deal, because television is now the more prestigious medium. Apparently.
