Opening: “It” @ Theaters Everywhere (9/8/2017)

Continuing along with some support of the upcoming Horror films of note, it’s time to make sure that you know that today is the official US wide opening for the adaptation of Stephen King’s terrifying novel “It”. About a month ago I posted the full trailer which if you missed you can see HERE. Its really, really creepy. Take a look at the official theatrical poster and remind yourself of the premise and cast down below.

The Premise: When children begin to disappear in the town of Derry, Maine, a group of young kids are faced with their biggest fears when they square off against an evil clown named Pennywise, whose history of murder and violence dates back for centuries. (thanks Wiki).

The Cast:
Bill Skarsgård as It / Pennywise The Dancing Clown / Bob Gray
Jaeden Lieberher as Bill Denbrough
Jeremy Ray Taylor as Ben Hanscom
Sophia Lillis as Beverly Marsh
Finn Wolfhard as Richie Tozier
Wyatt Oleff as Stanley Uris
Chosen Jacobs as Mike Hanlon
Jack Dylan Grazer as Eddie Kaspbrak
Nicholas Hamilton as Henry Bowers
Owen Teague as Patrick Hockstetter
Logan Thompson as Victor “Vic” Criss
Jake Sim appears as Reginald “Belch” Huggins
Jackson Robert Scott as George Denbrough
Javier Botet as The Leper

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Based on my having quite the barrage of shows and contests to monitor along with a tad bit of everything else I will not be seeing this film during the early weeks of its theatrical run. I do hope to see it before its made its way to home video so lets see what happens. The advance word is that the film is quite scary and that is good by me, one really expects a film with a sinister monster clown type figure to terrify and this one should for sure. What about you readers? Will you be catching the film during the opening weekend or right after? Let me know down in the comments section below and if you should see it, please no spoilers of any kind. I hate that stuff and there is no need for it. Until next we meet.

Now with the official first trailer out to enjoy, I would think that checking your locks and windows first might be paramount. Enjoy, if you dare.
