Relevant response from the AV Club comments (not worth reading unless you want to read a hundred internet smartasses make variations on the same unfunny joke regarding the book's most contentious scene)

Yeah, I'm all for casting nobodies over big names, but even I have a Ben Mendelsohn opt-out clause to that opinion.

Between this and the Joker, it's a rough time for scary clowns. At least that's now being downplayed as a focus group exercise.

I guess it's up to Josh Boone to deliver a casting announcement for The Stand that isn't thuddingly wrong-headed.

No, Georgie, not all Stephen King adaptations do float. Some sink like stone turds. Not that we needed another of those.

No doubt about it, New Line undercut all of his creative options 'til there was no reason to stick around. In a perfect world it'd just die already and let someone who cares about this project handle it later

With explicit instructions not to hire an young unknown actor who might very well be perfectly talented and a good fit for the role or everyone will throw a fit on the internet

Why were we worried, the newest attempt at It is being written by the author of Annabelle!

I didn't think this was still happening but it is: first look at Stellan Skarsgard's other son as Pennywise in It. The kid who plays Mike on Stranger Things is Richie (beep beep)

Some recent set photos from the upcoming IT adaptation reveal (via the marquee of the movie theater) that the childhood section takes place in 1989 (where the kids apparently see Batman and/or Lethal Weapon 2... that's quite a difference from them seeing I Was a Teenage Werewolf). Also, this adaptation retains the Paul Bunyan statue.

Set picture of the House on Neibolt Street-- it looks like a Disneyland Halloween haunted house. What a never-ending bad joke this adaptation is turning out to be

How hard could it possibly be to find an old run-down house? Jesus, that's barely worthy of Knotts Scary Farm, let alone Disney.

This is shot by Park Chan-wook's regular cinematographer Chung-hoon Chung, so at the very least (about all we can expect from this at this point) it'll probably look nice.

I thought they were remaking It, not Killer Klowns From Outer Space

Guy has a side job at a production of Cats, so this is just more convenient

Something about that poster makes it feel extraordinarily misguided, and I can't quite put my finger on it. (I'm not being sarcastic)

There were whole seconds in that trailer that were promising, unfortunately they were surrounded by everything else. Sped up frame rate, really? Are we sure this isn't set in a Marilyn Manson video circa mid 90s?

I online-know someone who read Cary Fukunaga's draft of this, and apparently the trailer looks almost exactly like it. So make of that what you will.

The trailer may reflect the content of Fukunaga's script, but it certainly doesn't look like something he would have shot.

This trailer kind of has the tone of the recent Insidious type movies. I wonder if the movie will kind of play off the recent success of "Stranger Things" or try to avoid that since those writers might have been involved in this at some point or something. The paper boat gliding down the street and the kid looking through the sewer is about the same as from the miniseries, just without the almost deep down sadistic humor of the way Tim Curry would say "Hi!", or later "beep beep". I also like when Tim Curry's clown shows up at the library and just says "A little young for ya" or something as the guy stares at the librarian.

Directors are still trying to catch up with what Adrian Lyne did in 1990.

The trailer broke the record for most worldwide online views
