    Hopefully there's less jump scares like that and more creepiness. I really liked Pennywise appearing in that slideshow, that was creepy. This Pennywise appears to be a lot less humourous than Tim Curry. More of a straight up evil psycho clown.

    First time my knife touched skin
    And the red blood started flowing so quick I just couldn't quit
    Kept stabbing until everything that I seen was red
    The pillow, the blankets, the walls, and even the bed
    One color dominating everything like contemporary art
    Am I the killer or artist with bloody heart?
    Then I curled into a ball in the corner of the room
    Feeling like a creep in the light of the moon

    Can some summarize the differences between the book and the movie? I heard "IT" is barely a clown in the book

    Dude, the book is over a thousand pages long. Even with the three-hour movie, a lot was left out. And a lot was watered down for it to be suitable for television.

    Pennywise the clown is It's default form for much of the book. And he is seen by all sorts of people, not just The Losers. He shows up during certain tragedies in Derry, almost as though he's there to partake in the horror. But yes, It does also take the form of over a dozen different things to terrify It's victims.

    Candy for us King fans...

    I'm so excited for this remake, since I'm a tremendous fan of King and the original TV miniseries starring John Ritter and Tim Curry.

    The remake looks eerie and enticing and much more sinister than the original TV series adaptation. It looks like we're getting to an adaptation closer to the 'bizarro-vision' of the King novel.

    I like pairing Pennywise with Shiva (Hindu god of destruction), since they both represent self-control, and the remake gives Pennywise that right dose of 'metaphysics freakishness.' Shiva looks a lot like Brandon Lee's Crow, which is why such a pairing illuminates the cinema-friendly features of this remake.


    ====

    SHIVA: Excited about your remake feature, Pennywise?
    PENNYWISE: I love media attention!
    SHIVA: You belong in hell...
    PENNYWISE: The TV miniseries was too pedestrian...
    SHIVA: No, Tim Curry did a fine job, you ghoul!
    PENNYWISE: The remake is giving me big-screen time.

    I think splitting things into two films will definitely work in their favour.
    Here for a darker turn, closer to the book and the trailers thus far are definitely promising.
    Hopefully upon this films debut we'll get some kind of update on the 2nd chapter as I hope we're aren't waiting years on a follow up.
    Still hoping for some cameos from the mini-series cast in either this or the next installment for a nice nod to the nostalgia of the original.

    I agree, since I was never a huge fan of the TV movie, the first part was much better than the second and I think this can work better to actually split them up.

    That voice is either Pennywise's or...well, if you've read the novel, you can put it together.

    They played an extended scene of Georgie with his boat and coming face to face with IT in the sewer before Annabelle last night. The scene was almost 10 minutes.

    The scene is OK and I'm still on the fence after seeing this. Again they are focusing more on a crazy clown than what the story is truly about.
    Not only does it seem like they are trying to sell the movie to an audience in a contradictory fashion to the book but I am really starting to believe
    they have also made the movie itself contradictory to the book.

    The scene is Georgie chasing his boat and meeting up with Pennywise. They talk for the rest of the scene nearly word for word from the book from what I can remember of it.
    Pennywise has a weird drooling problem. He is dry in the sewer but the entire scene had rivers of drool pooling out of his mouth and dripping off his chin. It was a bit distracting
    and took away from the general creepiness of what the scene portrays.

    Now it did look like the entire scene and unless it was edited there was not one exchange where Pennywise tells Georgie "We all float down here." which I found odd and disappointing.
    Pennywise simply tells Georgie the storm blew him away from the circus and into the sewer but the rest of the circus was down there with him. He asked Georgie if he could smell the
    hot dogs, and cotton candy and Georgie interrupted with POPCORN! From there Pennywise played off popcorn being Georgie's favorite and then offered him his boat back.

    This is where the scene ended and the typical splash screen with the movie title, producers, writers, and director came up with a loud boom. The crowd was laughing

    I haven't decided if I am seeing this in the theater or not. In one hand, it does look like a pretty decent remake. It takes original elements and updated them accordingly. In the other hand, horror remakes are often crap and not sure I would like to give money to fuel the shitty remake fire.

    I want to see it regardless, but who knows.

    Anytime I see remake trailers, I get disappointed by them because I've seen so many in the past and I was left walking out ticked off. This trailer looks good, dark and holds a promise to me for some reason. Even the creepy house looks excellent. The one thing I'm excited to see more of is the tunnel and I hope there's great scenes with the children exploring it. Ever since I picked up my brother's It book in his bedroom I knew I had to read it one day. At the time I was eight and got spooked out by reading Goosebumps so I waited until I got older.

    I'm so excited to see this in the theater. Plan on getting a huge popcorn, soda and reeses pieces!
