I froze.

Our son was 6 at the time and all we could do is hold each other and stay close together all day. We checked on family and friends in New York—It was a trying few days.

IT is the Perfect End of Summer Movie!

IT, It Movie, Andrés Muschietti, Andy Muschietti, Seth Grahame Smith, David Katzenberg, Gary Dauberman, Barbara Muschietti, Bill Skarsgård, Stephen KingIT has enough scary moments that didn’t take away from the relationships of the characters. Which were well played by all the young actors in the film, 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 (TV’s Hawaii Five-0), Jack Dylan Grazer (Tales of Halloween), and Nicholas Hamilton (Captain Fantastic). Even the actors who played the evil adults were fantastic and scary to watch.

New Line Cinema’s horror thriller IT is directed by Andrés (Andy) Muschietti (Mama), it is based on the hugely popular Stephen King novel of the same name, which has been terrifying readers for decades.

The plot: When children begin to disappear in the town of Derry, Maine, a group of young kids are faced with their biggest fears when they square off against an evil clown named Pennywise (Bill Skarsgård), whose history of murder and violence dates back for centuries.

Pennywise (Bill Skarsgård)

We got to ask a few questions of Seth Grahame-Smith, David Katzenberg, Gary Dauberman, Andrés (Andy) Muschietti, and Barbara Muschietti. When asked about the second film, they told us that the script for the second movie is being worked on now, Now listen in on the conversations by clicking on the audio boxes.

One of the things I liked was my brief conversation with Barbara Muschietti, Andrés sister and business partner for two decades. Also producer on this film and she produced and co-wrote the feature film Mama along with Andres and Neil Gross. I asked her how has it been working with her brother on this project? She said, “It was a long time getting it done but it’s always great to have each others back.”

I enjoyed this film so much that now I want to revisit The Goonies and Stand by Me, because IT has the same sensibility that I like. IT is the perfect end of summer film and it is in theaters September 8.

It doesn’t matter how many times I’ve spoken to a filmmaker about his or her project(s), I always find what they have to say interesting.

My latest interview with Steven Molony and Dan Glaser who co-wrote Valley of Bones and Glaser directed it. It’s the biggest project they have worked together on. The film opens in about 300 theaters on September 1.

The plot: Set in the oil-rich Badlands of western North Dakota. Anna (Autumn Reeser), a single mother and paleontologist, and McCoy (Steven Molony), a meth-addicted oil worker, form an unlikely bond as they both struggle to make amends for their criminal pasts. Their hopes lay in the form of a monumental T. rex fossil, the discovery potentially worth millions.

Blade Runner 2049 Prequel Short Film!

Ryan Gosling, Harrison Ford, Ana De Armas, MacKenzie Davis, Sylvia Hoeks, Lennie James, Carla Juri, Robin Wright, Dave Bautista, Jared Leto, Ridley Scott, Denis Villeneuve, Blade Runner 2049Blade Runner 2049 short film reveals what happened in 2036.

Collider is happy to exclusively premiere a Blade Runner 2049 prequel short film “in-world” piece that explains what happened in the world of Blade Runner between the first movie, set in 2019, and this sequel, set in 2049. The short film Nexus: 2036 takes place in the year 2036 and revolves around Jared Leto’s character, Niander Wallace. In this short, directed by Luke Scott (Morgan), Wallace introduces a new line of “perfected” replicants called the Nexus 9, seeking to get the prohibition on replicants repealed. This no doubt has serious ramifications that will be crucial to the plot of Blade Runner 2049.
