Continuation of the acclaimed movie “It” by Stephen king book was released in Russian cinemas on Thursday.
Starting the weekend brought the tape almost 600 million rubles. The first film saw the light two years ago and was a sensation – he was actually recognized as the best adaptation of the works of the legendary Stephen king. Master is a writer of both paintings, and, according to him, is very proud of these films.
If you are not familiar with the book or haven’t seen the first part before watching the second, you will have to do it, because “It 2” is a direct continuation of the plot of “It.” A group of school friends, calling themselves the “losers ‘ Club”, pursues a cruel and ruthless clown Pennywise – they manage to escape, but the monster returns to their home town of Derry every 27 years. The guys swore each other to return to Derry if the hellish clown will once again begin to commit their heinous murder.
The children grew up, fate scattered them in different US cities and each has its own problems. However, one call from Derry explodes their life, forcing to keep his promise and return home. They will have to recall everything they have experienced as children, because in their past are hidden clues on how to stop Pennywise once and for all. Ahead of them expect so much more violent “entertainment” clown, because he has come back for revenge.
The main stars “It 2” – Hollywood actors Jessica Chastain and James McAvoy. In an interview, James admitted that the film was very interesting, but also frightening – to the extent that the actor even had a drink to get rid of stress after another day on the set. The role Pennywise returned bill Skarsgard as his character became angrier, and murder even more sophisticated.
The film is really scary, and sometimes very violent scenes, so 18+ rating is justified. Despite the many events and storylines occurring at nearly three hours, the picture seems a little prolonged. However, the greatest disadvantage of this is not wasted viewing time will not be exact. After all, “It’s 2” much more than just a well made dark horror movie. Is a drama, a little Comedy, and even a session of the psychology – Yes, the characters have grown, but each of them, one way or another, in pursuit of children’s anxiety and trauma, each unhappy in their own way because of this and if not can begin to live freely, unable to break poisoning the connection with the past. In a desperate struggle with Pennywise they suddenly discover in yourself what didn’t and change your attitude towards the world and ourselves. Each character’s story made it very detailed, it is closely intertwined with other lines, creating an amazing canvas from friendship, fears, loves, betrayals, sadness for lost youth. It is really a great movie and a worthy continuation of the first part, shot with careful and attentive attitude to the book and story as a whole.
