After It was released, some of the excitement surrounding the film was about what wasn't on screen. Director Andy Muschietti teased that the home release might have an extended version of the film, plus rumours abounded of a gross flashback scene involving Pennywise devouring a baby. Now a list of the actual deleted scenes has made it online; while there's no baby-eating (damn), they do sound fascinating.

The Russo Brothers, directors of Captain America: Civil War as well as Avengers: Infinity War and its sequel, just purchased the rights to The Electric State, an illustrated novel by Simon Stålenhag. Andy Muschietti, director of It, is in talks to direct, and Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, writers of the Russo's Marvel movies, will adapt the screenplay.

It's been a long time coming to theatres, but It turns out to have been worth the wait. The cinematic adaptation of what is arguably Stephen King's most famous novel is absolutely an excellent horror film, but its real success is how it exceeds just horror -- it's dramatic, funny, and, most impressively, has way more heart than any movie about a terrifying clown should manage to have.

As the numbered balloons on director Andy Muschietti's Instagram have warned us, we're just two days away from the first trailer for It. We're looking forward to seeing this version of villain Pennywise the Clown in action, and creepy new photos released today reminded us of the nightmares we'll be having as a result.
