Stephen King: It isn't just a horror movie..

It's the best opening weekend for a horror movie, with Paranormal falling into second place and that made $52m (£39m); and it's set to have the second-biggest weekend ever for an R-rated movie (a United Kingdom equivalent of a 15 rating), with only Deadpool likely to have done better. Previously Deadpool held the record for biggest preview gross for an R rated horror film. The Stephen King adaptation set box office records for a horror movie, and was the largest September opening of all time - doubling the earnings of the previous record holders, according to the AP. "For me it's very important to keep the characters engaged emotionally, ' Muschietti told MTV News during a press day for the film last month".

"It" director Andres Muschietti revealed some plans he has for the sequel to Entertainment Weekly. "I am attached to it but that's all I can say, we're in the early stages and I'm talking to Andy [Muschietti] about it and figuring out what It will be".

Like in the book, Pennywise the Clown torments the children not only once, but twice in their lifetimes - as kids, and as adults. Its story revolves around a group of kids who call themselves the Losers Club and who band together one summer to fight back against an ancient evil entity that appears mainly as Pennywise the Dancing Clown. No casting announcements have been made, but surely the only choice for the grown up Beverly is Amy Adams as 15-year-old Sophia Lillis (who plays Bev in Chapter One) is the spitting image of Adams. "On the second movie, that dialogue between timelines will be more present", he said. But when will Pennywise return to the big screens?

Speaking to MTV, director Andy Muschietti said that, should he be chosen to helm the sequel, the film would be much darker than the first.

The young teen actors all give incredible performances, and it was really interesting to see Wolfhard create a different character in Richie Tozier compared to his role in "Stranger Things".

I did not just want to be scared by this frightening monster.
