Story of IT Trailer Promises to Expose the Truth Behind Pennywise

Stephen King’s IT has been a beloved horror novel from the very beginning. However, it was the 1990 adaptation that made Pennywise the clown a horror icon. Now, a new documentary will take a deep-dive look at the 1990 adaptation, which was done as a two-part miniseries that more or less serves as two short movies or one long movie. The second trailer for Pennywise: The Story of IT promises an awful lot for hardcore horror and Stephen King fans.

The trailer was released by Dead Mouse Productions and, though it isn’t what one would call flashy, as it mostly just revolves around cheap animations and text on a screen, what the trailer spells out does sound of interest to many. This new IT documentary will include tons of interviews with the cast and crew, new photos from the making of the miniseries, as well as exclusive behind the scenes footage. If you have a fondness for Tim Curry’s portrayal of Pennywise the clown, that could make this documentary well-worth your time. But it is a little hard to tell, since they include very little actual footage in this teaser. Here’s what to expect, according to the makers of the documentary.

Pennywise: The Story of IT‘ is a feature length documentary from the makers of ‘RoboDoc: The Creation of RoboCop’ and ‘You’re so cool, Brewster! The Story of Fright Night’. Featuring over 40 interviews with the cast and crew (including Tim Curry) of Tommy Lee Wallace’s 1990 TV classic ‘Stephen King’s IT.’ This documentary will explore the legacy of the show as well as the cultural impact that Pennywise has had on a generation of fans. With hours of never-before-seen behind the scenes footage and exclusive photos ‘Pennywise’ will be the ultimate celebration of this much loved classic and will also be a lasting tribute to the remarkable work of the one of cinema’s greatest character actors Mr. Tim Curry.”

Even if this doesn’t have the most amazing production value, the timing couldn’t really be better. Director Andy Muschietti’s movie adaptation of IT wound up becoming a cultural phenomenon last year, ultimately grossing $700 million at the worldwide box office and becoming the highest-grossing horror movie ever. While there are many factors that contributed to the success, a certain amount of the initial excitement as no doubt fueled by the nostalgia and love many have for the 1990 version of IT.

There’s also Bill Skarsgard’s instantly iconic take on Pennywise, which wouldn’t really have been possible without what Tim Curry did before him. Andy Muschietti even snuck Curry’s Pennywise into the IT movie as a doll in one scene. So IT is as popular as it has ever been, and many horror fans are feeling a little impatient while waiting for IT: Chapter 2 to get underway, which is set for release on September 6, 2019. This documentary could help fill the void. Be sure to check out the trailer for Pennywise: The Story of IT, courtesy of the Dead Mouse Productions YouTube channel, for yourself below.

Ronda Rousey Wins Raw Women’s Championship at Summer Slam 2018

Ronda Rousey beat Alexa Bliss for the Raw Women’s Championship earlier tonight at WWE SummerSlam 2018. This makes Rousey the first female wrestler ever to have won a major UFC Championship and a WWE Championship.

Ronda Rousey dominated Alexa Bliss from start to finish, finally putting the champion out of her misery with a grotesque arm bar. Seriously it looked like she tore Alexa’s arm from her socket.

As Rousey celebrated, the commentators called her a pioneer for women’s athletes. She embraced Natalya, the Bella twins, and finally, her husband, Travis Browne. The Rousey era is upon us just in time for WWE’s Evolution PPV.

After one of the highest rated debut matches in professional wrestling, Ronda Rousey made it clear to the world that she was serious about making history in WWE after claiming victory tonight and becoming the new Raw Women’s Champion.

What Men Want Trailer Puts a Gender-Spin on Mel Gibson’s Classic

What Men Want Trailer Puts a Gender-Spin on Mel Gibson’s Classic

First Ghostbusters. Then Ocean’s 8. Now, we get What Men Want, a remake of the Mel Gibson comedy classic What Women Want, which puts a gender-swapped spin on the idea. Taraji P. Henson takes over the lead role, and if we’re to believe the first trailer, it will be hilarious.

Paramount Pictures obviously knows what men want. They want a romantic comedy headed-up by Taraji P. Henson. Girls Trip producers Will Packer and James Lopez are behind this upcoming winter release, and they had a big hit on their hands with that previous comedy. So they obviously know what men want too. Do we have to say it any louder? They want more Taraji P. Henson!

Adam Shankman directs What Men Want. He’s perhaps best known for reviving John Waters’ cult classic Hairspray as a big screen musical. The original What Women Want was one of Mel Gibson’s last great films. It followed a chauvinistic advertising executive who acquires the ability to hear what women are thinking. He attempts to use this power to bring about the fall of his female boss, but as he uses this inside knowledge to outwit his superior, the bachelor begins to fall in love with her, and so finds himself feeling more than a little guilty when his plan to have her sacked looks like it may come to fruition.

Now, Taraji P. Henson stars as Ali Davis in a remake that turns everything upside down and on its head. Ali is a successful sports agent who’s constantly boxed out by her male colleagues. When Ali is passed up for a well-deserved promotion, she questions what else she needs to do to succeed in a man’s world…Until she gains the ability to hear men’s thoughts! With her newfound power, Ali looks to outsmart her colleagues as she races to sign the next basketball superstar, but the lengths she has to go to will put her relationship with her best friends and a potential new love interest (Aldis Hodge) to the test.

Taraji P. Henson is the real attraction here. But she’s backed up by some capable players who will make this quite the attractive package. Joining her are Tracy Morgan, Aldis Hodge, Richard Roundtree, Wendi McLendon-Covey, Josh Brener, Tamala Jones, Phoebe Robinson, Max Greenfield, Jason Jones, Brian Bosworth, Chris Witaske and Erykah Badu. We have to imagine that What Men Want will cause a bit of an uproar amongst the social media crowd, who like to complain about every thing nowadays.

How dare this movie suggest that Taraji P. Henson wouldn’t be able to survive in the world of men’s sports without the assist of their thoughts. She’s stealing male answers to questions that women can’t answer? That’s blasphemous. Taraji P. Henson doesn’t need man thoughts to make it in this world, and how dare this comedy suggest otherwise! It happened to Amy Schumer’s I Feel Pretty. What Men Want, though just an innocent romantic comedy, looks and feels like something someone, somewhere, can raise a ruckus about.

What Men Want is in theaters starting January 11. The first trailer comes from Paramount Pictures. If you love watching Taraji P. Henson in a power suit, then you better hurry up and click on the video below. This is going to be your favorite movie of 2019.

New Widows Trailer Has Viola Davis Uniting a Badass Team of Criminals

New Widows Trailer Has Viola Davis Uniting a Badass Team of Criminals

A new trailer for Widows has dropped. Director Steve McQueen took his time putting together his next movie project following his Best Picture Oscar win for the poignant and brilliantly crafted 12 Years a Slave. McQueen decided to take a very different approach for his follow up, opting to do a gritty crime thriller with a female fronted cast, which probably isn’t what anyone would have guessed he would be doing as his next movie. That said, it looks like we’re all the better for it, as this latest trailer for Widows promises that this is something you need to have on your radar heading into awards season this year.

There is quite a bit of repeat footage from the first teaser used here. However, the new stuff that is introduced gives us a slightly better idea of what’s at stake and how the central plot is probably going to unfold. This trailer also showcases the ridiculous cast that has been assembled which, with no other information, would be enough to get movie fans interested. This thing is an embarrassment of riches when it comes to on-screen talent and it looks like Viola Davis is going to absolutely own in a way that she’s never owned before.

The latest Steve McQueen movie sees a group of Widows, as the title implies, who are forced into a very bad situation after their now-deceased husbands stole some money from the wrong guys. With no other options, they’re forced to try and pull off their own heist in order to set things straight and get their lives back. Unfortunately, by the look of things, that isn’t going to go according to plan. In addition to Viola Davis, the cast includes Michelle Rodriguez, Elizabeth Debicki, Cynthia Erivo, Colin Farrell, Brian Tyree Henry, Daniel Kaluuya, Garret Dillahunt, Carrie Coon, Jacki Weaver, Jon Bernthal, Manuel Garcia-Rulfo, Robert Duvall and Liam Neeson.

It’s rare that a gritty heist movie such as this can go on to garner any real love from The Academy. Heck, even Michael Mann’s Heat, quite arguably the greatest heist movie ever made, was completely snubbed at the Academy Awards that year, not even earning a single nomination. That said, Widows looks like it can absolutely be one of the rare exceptions to that rule. The talent involved will certainly help garner a decent deal of attention.

With the Disney takeover of Fox looming, it’s hard not to think at least a little bit about the fact that a movie like this would almost certainly never happen at Disney. Granted, this very well would have been given the green light elsewhere, but this is an example of the kind of projects that may suffer as a result of the impending merger. We’ll be hearing word on if this movie is going to live up to what is being promised by this latest trailer, as Widows is set to premiere next month at the Toronto International Film Festival. Fox is set to release Widows in theaters on November 16. Be sure to check out the new trailer, courtesy of the 20th Century Fox YouTube channel, for yourself below.
