'IT' sets a new bar for R-Rated horror films
In a week where mother nature hit hard, Warner Bros. provided a much needed diversion by way of a flesh-eating, fear-inducing killer clown. — Warner Bros. and New Line's North American weekend estimate brings the latest adaptation of Stephen King's IT at $123 million, surpassing their initial $117 million forecast. IT screened in over 4,100 US theaters and opened in international 46 markets, shattering North America's largest opening for a September release, eclipsing Hotel Transylvania 2 ($48 million) by over 60% while simultaneously eclipsing North America's largest opening for an R-rated horror by over 57%, previously held by Paranormal Activity 3 ($52 million).
“It” is the latest highly-anticipated adaptation of a very popular Stephen King novel. Though, much like Jordan Pelle's very effective “Get Out” from earlier this year, “It” isn’t really a horror film. Instead, what it is…or… I guess...what “It” is, is a creepy tale of a small town and an angry clown.
IT (2017) Review
A psychologically shaking and bone-chilling, fear inducing movie about a demonic clown. So yeah, this was not frightening or scary at all... — Set in the 1980's, the film follows a small group of young children in a small town with ALOT of problems, all of which focus entirely upon children and fear. A particular strong element of this movie is the connection and amount that the viewer cares about the young children. They all have problems, be it from their past or current lives, fears (Which 'IT' feeds off of) and so on. I really grew to care about each character, even as new ones are added throughout. And it was great to follow their arcs, actions and characters grow and develop and bound together for the greater good.
