Pennywise, pound the box office. 'It' looks like a hit

Posted September 10, 2017

If early ticket sales for Andy Muschietti's adaptation of Stephen King's classic horror tome are any indication, then the New Line Cinema flick is in for a very healthy weekend at the box office. It's a more suspenseful, less gore-and-jump scares type of horror movie, and it has such incredible characters and such a compelling story, it's hard not to love the movie.

"It" will be the biggest domestic launch since Spider-Man: Homecoming (July 7), considering the opening week collections, if it actually ends its maiden week past $100 million. Death is an ever-present threat here, even to kids, as seen right from the opening scene as Pennywise the clown (Bill Skarsgård) drags down an unwitting boy. He had big shoes to fill in stepping in for the great Tim Curry, but he more than proved himself worthy. Now the good folks at Funko are bringing Pennywise to terrifying life in a new series of Pops! It's just that, in addition to the normal scary stuff - bullies, crushes, buying tampons for the first time - there is also a supernatural force making the children in their town of Derry, Maine, disappear without a trace.

You can see It in theaters everywhere, and Mr. Mercedes is available via the AT&T network Audience. It has a lovable cast and one of the best horror villains and they all give fantastic performances.

The story begins in 1988, when little Georgie chases a handmade boat into a sewer, where he sees Pennywise lurking. I don't care how small he is.

I saw the original when I was a kid and it set off a phobia of clowns that has stayed with ever since. The only difference is that this group's "Boo Radley" is a supernatural clown made of pure nightmare fuel. "So that ultimately when we do hopefully get to tell the second part of the story, it'll be present day".

VVNG- During the first act of this movie, I was already thinking about all of the extra free time I was going to have during my upcoming sleepless nights.
