‘It’ Director Andy Muschietti Eyed for ‘Electric State’ From Russo Brothers
It” director Andy Muschietti is in talks with Russo Brothers Studio to board a movie version of Simon Stalenhag’s illustrated novel “The Electric State.”

The story, set in an alternative 1997, centers on a runaway teenager and her yellow toy robot as they travel through a strange USA, where the ruins of gigantic battle drones litter the countryside heaped together with the discarded trash of a high tech consumerist society in decline. As their car approaches the edge of the continent, the world outside the window seems to be unraveling ever faster as if somewhere beyond the horizon, the hollow core of civilization has finally caved in.

Muscietti, who’s attached to direct “It: Chapter 2,” would direct and produce “Electric State” with sister Barbara Muschietti and Rbs principals Joe and Anthony Russo, should the deal go through.

‘It’ Scene Stealer Sophia Lillis on Creating a Rebellious Beverly With Director Andy Muschietti

‘It’ Scene Stealer Sophia Lillis on Creating a Rebellious Beverly With Director Andy Muschietti
After studying acting for half of her young life, Sophia Lillis is officially breaking big. The teenage talent scored the role of Beverly Marsh in “It” from Andy Muschietti. Though the horror film, based on Stephen King’s 1986 novel of the same name, centers on a group of ragtag pre-teens who take on the demonic clown Pennywise, audiences couldn’t help but be drawn to the grounded Lillis. More than just being the only girl in the group, Lillis stood out for her thoughtful performance as the tomboy who is tormented in her home life just as much as by Pennywise.

Lillis: “In eighth grade, which was around the time I heard about casting for this, I was reading ‘The Shining’ for eighth grade book club. So I knew about Stephen King, but I never really knew how big ‘It’ was. I really enjoyed horror films, and I always wanted to act in one, so hearing

An ‘Are You Afraid of the Dark’ Movie Is Happening with ‘It’ Screenwriter
The dream of the 90s is alive in reboots, and another TV classic is being brought back to life. According to Variety, Paramount Players (a new division of Paramount that focuses on on reviving legacy Viacom properties for contemporary audiences) is moving forward with a movie revival of Are You Afraid of the Dark, with It screenwriter Gary Dauberman set to write the script. While I'm usually very skeptical of reboots and revivals, I have to say, this could actually be great. In case you had forgotten, Are You Afraid of the Dark was really scary (yes, some of …

Horror Movies Have Grossed Over $1 Billion at the Box Office in 2017
For many people on Halloween, going to see a horror movie is a great way to spend the night. But this year, moviegoers have gone to see horror at an unprecedented rate. According to comScore, which tallied the domestic revenue for all horror films that grossed more than $5 million at the box office, the genre has generated approximately $1.1 billion in revenue. This is thanks in large part, of course, to the record $324 million made by “It” over the past eight weeks. But other early-year horror hits like Blumhouse’s “Get Out” and “Split,” which combined to gross $313...

Paramount Finds ‘Pet Sematary’ Directors (Exclusive)

Paramount Finds ‘Pet Sematary’ Directors (Exclusive)
Following the huge success of summer blockbuster “It,” Paramount is ready to get the gears moving on another Stephen King classic.

Starry Eyes” helmers Kevin Kolsch and Dennis Widmyer have been tapped to direct a “Pet Sematary” remake at the studio.

Lorenzo di Bonaventura is producing the remake to the 1989 horror classic, which was directed by Mary Lambert and written by King, along with Steven Schneider. Matt Greenberg and David Kajganich wrote the script.

The original “Pet Sematary” was based on the King novel, which follows the travails of a family who moves into a new home next to a cemetery endowed with powers that allow the creatures buried in it to come back from the dead.

The original brought in $57 million on an $11 million budget, which led to a less commercially successful 1992 sequel starring Edward Furlong and Anthony Edwards.

'Jigsaw' Brings the 'Saw' Franchise Back to the Big Screen as 'Thor: Ragnarok' Debuts Overseas

'Jigsaw' Brings the 'Saw' Franchise Back to the Big Screen as 'Thor: Ragnarok' Debuts Overseas
Over the last couple of years, October hasn't been the haven for horror one would think it would be. This year, however, not only has the year itself been dominated by top quality horror releases, but It got a jump start on the scary season with a September release and October has already had Happy Death Day debut with strong numbers. This weekend, Lionsgate hopes to give the genre another jolt with Jigsaw, which brings the Saw franchise back to the big screen after a seven year hiatus. Additional new releases include George Clooney's Suburbicon and Universal's Thank You for Your Service while Dimension will finally release Amityville: The Awakening after over five years of the film bouncing around the release schedule. Expected to finish #1 this weekend, Lionsgate brings back one of the studio's most iconic characters with Jigsaw. Michael and Peter Spierig (Daybreakers) directed the film, which arrives

‘It,’ ‘Game of Thrones’ Drive Strong Time Warner Quarterly Earnings

‘It,’ ‘Game of Thrones’ Drive Strong Time Warner Quarterly Earnings
The box office success of “It” and water cooler buzz around “Game of Thrones” fueled Time Warner’s quarterly earnings, helping the media conglomerate trounce Wall Street’s expectations. The strong results come as Time Warner is selling itself to At&T for $86 billion.

Revenues at the company behind HBO, CNN, and Warner Bros. jumped 6% to $7.6 billion for the three-month period ending in September. Over the same frame, operating income rose 11% to $2.2 billion and adjusted operating income climbed 13% to $2.3 billion. Earnings per share clocked in at $1.82. Stronger ticket sales and cable subscription increases helped offset declines in television advertising at Time Warner’s Turner division.

It all translated into an impressive quarter for the soon-to-be absorbed-by-a-giant-telecom media player. Analysts were predicting earnings of $1.59 on revenue of $7.39 billion.

Time Warner said it still expects the sale to At&T to close by the end of 2017. It missed an Oct. 22 termination date for the deal, but At&T extended

Pennywise Isn’t Welcome at Los Angeles Public Schools, as District Continues Its Clown Ban for Halloween

Pennywise Isn’t Welcome at Los Angeles Public Schools, as District Continues Its Clown Ban for Halloween
They all float down here. Except, apparently, on Los Angeles Unified School District campuses.

For the second year in a row, the LAUSD has banned all clown costumes and masks for Halloween. That includes, of course, what’s expected to be the most popular Halloween costume of the year: Pennywise, from the blockbuster smash thriller “It.”

Clowns are actually having a moment in pop culture, as FX’s hit series “American Horror Story: Cult” is crawling with them. (And, of course, had previously introduced the now-iconic clown Twisty on “American Horror Story: Freak Show.”) Krusty the Clown from “The Simpsons” and Zach Galiafianakis’ Chip Baskets continue on the comedy side.

And even reality competition shows aren’t immune to a little song, a little dance, a little seltzer down your pants, as “Puddles Pity Party” (real name: Mike Geier) was a contender on this year’s “America’s Got Talent.

Blumhouse's 'Happy Death Day' Debuts with Excellent $26.5 Million

Blumhouse's 'Happy Death Day' Debuts with Excellent $26.5 Million
Universal and Blumhouse score yet again, this time with Happy Death Day. The horror film easily topped the weekend box office, adding to the production house's impressive stable of original horror films including the likes of The Visit, Split and Get Out. At the same time, Blade Runner 2049 dropped over 50% in its second weekend, Stx's The Foreigner topped Mojo's weekend forecast, Open Road's Marshall delivered on expectations and Annapurna's Professor Marston and the Wonder Women crashed and burned. With an estimated $26.5 million, Happy Death Day topped the weekend box office, outperforming the opening weekend for The Visit, which went on to gross $65.2 million in 2015. Based on averages for Blumhouse titles debuting over $20 million, it seems reasonable to expect Happy Death Day to also push toward a $60 million run domestically, especially with Halloween still around the corner. The film scored a "B" CinemaScore from opening day audiences which broke down 54% female vs.

Blumhouse Makes a Wish for Another #1 Opener with 'Happy Death Day'

Blumhouse Makes a Wish for Another #1 Opener with 'Happy Death Day'
It's been a good year for Blumhouse Productions so far with Get Out and Split delivering impressive returns on minuscule budgets. This weekend their latest, Happy Death Day, hopes to follow suit as it targets a #1 finish, pushing WB's Blade Runner 2049 into runner-up position after just one week in theaters. Additional new releases include Stx's The Foreigner, Annapurna's Professor Marston & the Wonder Women and Open Road's Marshall as there's a little something for everyone in theaters, though it doesn't appear that little something will deliver big numbers at the box office collectively. On the heels of a very strong year so far, Blumhouse brings Happy Death Day to 3,149 theaters nationwide. The film takes the Groundhog Day concept and turns it into a horror film with Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones director, Christopher Landon, at the helm. Industry expectations are for a debut in the mid-teens, though we're anticipating a result just a bit higher.

WB and New Line's 'It' Propels September 2017 to Record Heights

WB and New Line's 'It' Propels September 2017 to Record Heights
September 2017 saw record returns with calendar grosses topping $695 million, falling just shy of becoming the first September to ever total $700 million at the domestic box office. Leading the way was Warner Bros. and New Line's massive hit It, which delivered record numbers of its own and accounted for over 40% of the month's total gross. September is also the first month since April to show an improvement over the same month in 2016, with September grosses finishing 18.3% higher than 2016. From a yearly stand point, 2017 was pacing 6.3% behind 2016 at the end of August and September grosses helped turn things around somewhat with 2017 pacing 4.6% behind 2016's record year by the end of the month. However, with October already pacing 20.8% behind last year (as of October 9) it's looking like September's gains will be lost throughout the current month, putting additional pressure on final two months of the year to turn the tide.Overall, September 2017 saw calendar grosses reach $696.2 million,

‘It’ Becomes First Horror Movie to Gross $300 Million in U.S.
While the big story at the box office this weekend is “Blade Runner 2049” and its surprising collapse, another Warner Bros. release, “It,” has quietly reached a milestone that few R-rated movies — none of them in the horror genre — have been able to reach: $300 million domestic. The Stephen King adaptation reached this mark in its fifth weekend in theaters, grossing an estimated $9.4 million and pushing its domestic total to $304 million, good enough to put it fifth-best among all 2017 releases. Meanwhile, the worldwide total has reached $600 million, with an international total of $298.8 million. All...

'Blade Runner 2049' Struggles to $31.5 Million Opening Weekend

'Blade Runner 2049' Struggles to $31.5 Million Opening Weekend
Warner Bros.'s release of Blade Runner 2049 isn't getting October off to the kind of start September saw one month ago. The dystopian sequel, arriving 35 years after the original, crash landed over its three-day opening, falling well below even the most modest of expectations. At the same time, Fox's The Mountain Between Us didn't exactly light the world on fire in its attempt at counter-programming, though it did top Mojo's pre-weekend forecast, while Lionsgate's release of My Little Pony squeaked over Mojo's meager expectations. Meanwhile, Focus's Victoria and Abdul expanded into moderate release and scored solid numbers, and A24's The Florida Project saw strong returns in its limited opening. With an estimated $31.5 million, Blade Runner 2049 finished atop the weekend box office, but fell well below expectations. Entering the weekend the Warner Bros. release, in association with Alcon Entertainment and Sony, was expected to deliver anywhere from $45-
