Just seen Disney's live-action Mulan isn't going to have any of the songs. Total insanity. Not even slightly interested now.

Same goes for IT.

But that DT poster does look great. I think the issue with DT is, it's not going to be that much like the books. It'd be impossible. The chronology will be all over the place, and what it comes down to is how much those who have read the books are prepared to forgive.

I have already assumed that IT will be dreadful. IT being terrible will not be as bad as the Dark Tower being shite as (although I have fond memories of it) the old TV version of it wasn't great. Other than Tim Curry who was awesome.

That IT TV show, back in the day, was acceptable. But to watch it now is so cringe worthy! I'll keep faith with the new IT. They re-made Salems Lot (which wasn't too bad and was kept quite close to the source material.)

What ruined it was (spoilers for the IT book!): they didn't even bother doing the massive underage gangbang. :x :x :x

Stephen King was tweeting his approval of the direction they've taken IT, so it may yet pan out. I just want them to make it really strawberry floating scary. I am acting more in hope than anything else, though. I do think scrapping the back-and-forth chronology is a good idea - two films to cover the 50s/80s is probaly the best way to focus on making the films good.

The old TV version was, as you say, terrible. It hasn't stood the test of time at all - I think it's fondly remembered because people watched it as kids and shat themselves. But it's really dated nowadays.

Speaking of Stephen King, did anyone watch the Hulu series of 11.22.63? I thought James Franco was very good but didn't really like the changes they made. The book is brilliant but definitely needed abit more editing. Don't think the TV show quite picked the right edits to make though.

I watched it after loving the book and was disappointed. It would probably have been a good show if I hadn't just finished the book, but the changes just grated with me.

Having said that, the ending of the TV show was better than the book.

I liked it but yeah, some of the changes were odd.

The addition of a whole extra key character was clearly a big change, but one they probably needed for exposition/plot development without a 'voice' of the book.

Yeah, totally agree with the extra character. A lot of the book was George's internal monologue which wouldn't have worked so well on a TV show.

I agree with Moggy about the ending for the TV show-that part they nailed.

What was different? In both Jake erases his relationship with Sadie and goes to a presentation honouring her in the present.

There are a few changes but in the book the world is going to end by being shaken apart by earthquakes.

Pretty sure he undoes that then goes to see her when she's old and ends the book dancing with her. No?
