You’ll float too when “It” arrives onto 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, DVD, Blu-ray Steelbook (exclusive to HMV), and Digital Download from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment. New Line Cinema’s blockbuster horror thriller “It,” directed by Andy Muschietti (“Mama”), is based on the hugely popular Stephen King novel of the same name, which has been terrifying readers for decades. “It” will be available on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, DVD and Blu-ray Steelbook from 15 January 2018.

“It” stars Bill Skarsgård (“Allegiant,” TV’s “Hemlock Grove”) as the story’s central villain, Pennywise. An ensemble of young actors also star in the film, including Jaeden Lieberher (“Midnight Special”), Jeremy Ray Taylor (“Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip”), Sophia Lillis (“37”), Finn Wolfhard (TV’s “Stranger Things”), Wyatt Oleff (“Guardians of the Galaxy”), Chosen Jacobs (upcoming “Cops and Robbers”), Jack Dylan Grazer
New Line’s surprise blockbuster “It” ranked as the No. 1 film. “Remakes, reboots and comic books reigned supreme at the box office in 2017, but one of the biggest surprises of the big screen this year is ‘It,'” said Keith Simanton, IMDb’s Senior Film Editor.
“Wonder Woman” and “Beauty and the Beast” clock in at second and third, proving the public’s interest.
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. Russell Ackerman and John Schoenfelder are also in talks to produce. Julian Angelin of The Salomonsson Agency and Simon Stålenhag will executive
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
The awards, which were handed out at a ceremony held at The Theatre at Ace Hotel in Los Angeles, honor creative communications across the entertainment industry in film, TV, home entertainment and gaming. Jeffrey Tambor hosted the ceremony.

“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.
Paramount had been ramping up its director search since the success of “It,” with directors
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
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.
