Warner Bros and New Line Cinema have finally released the first trailer for the highly anticipated It: Chapter 2. Andy Muschietti is returning to direct from a script penned by It co-writer Gary Dauberman and based on Stephen King’s iconic 1986 novel.
“I’m every nightmare you’ve ever had. I’m your worst dream come true. I’m everything you ever were afraid of.”
It’s been a while since we checked in on the new production of Stephen King’s IT. When last we wrote about it (Dec. 2014), there had been no casting announced, all we knew was Cary Fukunaga was at the helm, and following the first season of HBO’s True Detective, he was about the hottest name around. It was the announcement of Fukunaga as director that had people so excited for the project. In May of 2015 they cast Will Poulter to play the infamous clown, but just days later things started to unravel;
First it was Lillyhammer, then the wildly popular (especially among the Congress crowd) House of Cards, later this summer it will be Arrested Development, but right now it’s Eli Roth’s Hemlock Grove‘s time.
Premiering on Friday, April 19th, Netflix again released the entire 13 episode season at once for all of us who enjoy bingeing on TV shows in one or two sittings. I’ll admit that I’d never heard of the book by Brian McGreevy (who is an executive producer for the series) and don’t normally keep up with all news vampire and werewolf related so I had heard nothing about this show until it started getting buzz right before it premiered. Of course I then went out and found the trailer and Netflix lets you know right away what you might find in their new series.
