THE IT CROWD

Total Film - - Dialogue -

Ire­mem­ber see­ing It at a far too young age and be­ing suit­ably ter­ri­fied. One of the rea­sons Pen­ny­wise was a fan­tas­tic big bad is be­cause Tim Curry ap­peared for the most part as a reg­u­lar-look­ing clown. The type that chil­dren would in­ter­act with. The new trailer goes all out for scares, com­pletely miss­ing the ter­ror of the orig­i­nal. Surely I can’t be the only one to think this? Is it time to stop the end­less re­makes in favour of some­thing orig­i­nal?

DAN, CAERPHILLY

I’ve very ex­cited about the forth­com­ing It film. Very, very ex­cited. The an­tic­i­pa­tion is build­ing on a daily ba­sis thanks to the var­i­ous It- ded­i­cated so­cial-me­dia groups that have been set up by like-minded It fa­nat­ics. It has been a long time since I’ve looked for­ward to a film this much, and with the help of the many meme-lov­ing, book-quot­ing and clown-fear­ing fans post­ing all sorts of in-depth ques­tions and top­ics on pretty much an hourly ba­sis, the wait un­til re­lease day is still tor­ture, but made much more en­joy­able by shar­ing the an­tic­i­pa­tion with oth­ers! BEN CROOKS, VIA EMAIL We’re more at the ex­cited/brick­ing it end of the spec­trum. Al­though still ring­ing round the cinema chains, try­ing to find one that’ll al­low us to bring our sofa to cower be­hind.
