IT: Chapter 2: Even “The Beast” Fears Pennywise

Published

on

James McAvoy has been busy as of late, starring as “The Horde” in M. Night Shyamalan’s recent film ‘Glass.’ The film’s US debut opened to split reviews this weekend and yet, has raked in almost 90mil World Wide on a modest 20mil budget.  McAvoy, will also be reprising his role as Charles Xavier in this summer’s ‘X-Men: Dark Phoenix.’ If that’s not enough, McAvoy fans will get a triple dose this year, as James will be starring as the adult Billy Denbrough in this years ‘IT: Chapter 2.’ In a recent interview with Good Morning America, McAvoy spoke about what it was like working with Bill Skarsgård on set.

“He’s amazing. [Skarsgård] is terrifying. He’s a lovely guy, and yet he really freaked me out. I remember standing there with the rest of the cast, all these adults, and we’d all done weird, freaky stuff. And we are all looking at each other going, ‘I don’t like being here. I don’t like being an actor today. He really did, he really freaked me out. I never liked clowns as a kid.”

This is great news for fans of the movies. The stories are similar to ones coming from the cast while filming the first rebooted ‘IT’ film which came out in 2017. Bill Skarsgård, while talking to Interview Magazine , described how he had children terrified and crying on set:

“It’s a really weird thing to go, ‘If I succeed at doing what I’m trying to do with this character, I’ll traumatize kids.’ On set, I wasn’t very friendly or goofy. I tried to maintain some sort of weirdness about the character, at least when I was in all the makeup. At one point, they set up this entire scene, and these kids come in, and none of them have seen me yet. Their parents have brought them in, these little extras, right? And then I come out as Pennywise, and these kids, young, normal kids, I saw the reaction that they had. Some of them were really intrigued, but some couldn’t look at me, and some were shaking. This one kid started crying. He started to cry and the director yelled, ‘Action!’ And when they say ‘action,’ I am completely in character. So some of these kids got terrified and started to cry in the middle of the take, and then I realized, ‘Holy shit. What am I doing? What is this? This is horrible.”

It sounds like ‘IT: Chapter 2’ is going to ramp up the horror with Pennywise exacting revenge on the now grown up Losers Club. ‘IT: Chapter 2’ hits theaters September 6, 2019.

Starring: Jessica Chastain, Bill Hader, James McAvoy, Bill Skarsgård, James Ransone, Isaiah Mustafa and Jay Ryan

Director Matt Reeves Drops Our Fist Look At The New Batmobile

Published

on

“It’s going to allow his character to have an arc so that he can go through a transformation”

In the modern era of cinema, the internet is no stranger to leaks and set photos. Most Directors are faced with the difficult challenge of deciding when and when not to release official photos. Recently, an onslaught of set photos have hit the web, showing the newly re-designed batman look, along with a glimpse of the “Batcycle” and possibly a look at catwoman.

Today, Matt Reeves decided to break the internet, giving us our first look at the new batmobile. Reeves describes ‘The Batman’ as a noir style film, told squarely on the shoulders of the dark knight. It would appear that Reeves is going with a truly grounded approach to the character. A “Year two” Batman, taking on Gotham’s criminal underworld, with a rogues gallery of villains.

“It’s very much a point of view-driven, noir Batman tale,” he said. “It’s told very squarely on his shoulders, and I hope it’s going to be a story that will be thrilling but also emotional. It’s more Batman in his detective mode than we’ve seen in the films. The comics have a history of that. He’s supposed to be the world’s greatest detective, and that’s not necessarily been a part of what the movies have been. I’d love this to be one where when we go on that journey of tracking down the criminals and trying to solve a crime, it’s going to allow his character to have an arc so that he can go through a transformation.”

‘The Batman’ hits theaters June 25, 2021 | Stars: Robert Pattinson, Zoe Kravitz, Colin Farrell, Andy Serkis, Paul Dano, Peter Sarsgaard, Jeffrey Wright
