Meanwhile, Stephen King has heaped praise on the new adaptation of It and has admitted that he wasn’t prepared for how good it would turn out to be.
“I had hopes, but I was not prepared for how good it really was. It’s something that’s different, and at the same time, it’s something that audiences are gonna relate to,” King said.
“They’re gonna like the characters. To me, it’s all about character. If you like the characters… if you care… the scares generally work. I’m sure my fans will enjoy the movie. I think they’re gonna really enjoy the movie. And I think some of them will go back two or three times and actually savour the thing.”
