    Creepy indeed. Harkens back to the creepiest moment in the first movie in the library with the out of focus shots of the librarian over Ben's shoulder as he researches Derry history.

    Really curious about Muschetti's approach to the adult side of the story, as it is the weaker part. Wonder how much the younger cast will show up in this one? I expect the gore factor will be higher in this one.

    Is this going to be R-rated?

    It’s a pretty epic story so I believe it’s warranted. I don’t mind long running times as long as the film is good.

    You know the saying..........;)

    It's not warranted in my opinion as it seems like they're milking the storyline to me. I'm not a big fan of modern horror films so having a long such film isn't something I'm looking forward to.

    I don't care how long a film is, as long as it's the RIGHT length to tell the story effectively.

    I thought the reason It was split into two movies was so the movies didn't have a massive run time. Then again, I thought the same about the last two Avengers movies and those things are beloved and made a couple billion dollars so what do I know?

    Nope! I don't read King books. Both movies will have a combined five hour run time, is this Ben-Hur.

    I have to confess I have no interest in the "It" movies, but every time I see the title "It: Chapter Two" among the movie threads, my brain momentarily thinks "Wait, they're remaking that James Caan-Marsha Mason movie from the 70s?" The "It" part of the title gets lost from a glance.

    My point is there is still lots of story to be told. Considering what’s left, that run time seems appropriate. It’s a HUGE Book.

    Obviously We won’t know whether its warranted or not until it’s released. But based on the quality of the first one I don’t care as long as it is good.

    Maybe they should have It: Chapter 2 Part 1 and It: Chapter 2 Part 2.

    Long run times never bothered me in the least, but it does seem weird to have a movie this long for this genre's usual demographic.

    Personally, it won't bother me if it's good. The trailers have me psyched.
