:slol: Personally I'm totally sick of how similar all action movie trailers are these days, especially the strawberry floating Inception boom.

I love that Inception boom.


In other news apparently they've cast Pennywise in the new It films. Although he's 22 years old which seems like an odd choice.

So, IT is being remade by 'Hollywood', and apparently Will Poulter is down to play Pennywise. Initially I thought this was mental, based mainly on We're the Millers. But then I saw his IMDB picture and... maybe it'll be ok.

So, and IT remake. It's quite possibly my favourite book, and while Tim Curry gave me serious nightmares as a youngster, the made-for-TV film is definitely very dated now (I watched it again last year).

So, if it's done in a brutal way, I think it could be decent.

The book is brilliant but the TV movie was a bit shitty (other than Tim Curry who was great as Pennywise).

If they are following the book, I wonder if they will keep in the child sex orgy. :lol:

But no, seriously, it's a magnificent book. King will always be sneered at by lit snobs but he tells a magnificent story, and creates worlds like few other authors manage.

Just read that article properly and it looks like it'll be two films - when the kids were young, and then when they are adults. That makes a lot of sense to me. It's a 1,200-page book, daft to squeeze that into a single film.

I've just watched that trailer and you know what, it doesn't look half bad. I guess they had to call it Point Break in order to use the bones of the story but I'm thinking it would do a lot better without the baggage of being a remake.

I dunno... they managed to use the bones of the story for The Fast and the Furious, and they didn't call that Point Break...

Obviously you never realised that The Fast and the Furious was a subtitle. The film's name is Point Break 2: The Fast and the Furious. They then spun it off into the now wildly-successful Fast/Furious series after Point Break 3: xXx(also starring Vin Diesel) sucked a load of donkey dick. Plans for a Point Break 4 were eventually folded into Live Free or Die Hard.

That's worryingly plausible.
