Well, “new” as in “new to recent horror cinema”. The monster in question has actually been spawning nightmares for generations, as we learned at New Line’s “ScareDiego” horror presentation at Comic-Con. And, of course, we also caught up with It’s Pennywise and the glowering star of The Nun.

The Losers' Club is reuniting in Derry, and now they're all grown up.
When news broke that Jessica Chastain would play grown-up Beverly in It: Chapter Two, the bar was raised. With the Oscar-nominated actress on board, the whole cast would need to reach an incredible level - and, with the next two likely additions, it seems probable that's going to happen.
Locke & Key is an incredible horror comic from writer Joe Hill and artist Gabriel Rodríguez that just can't seem to catch a break for an adaptation. The most recent television pilot has apparently been passed over by Hulu, but for fans of the Locke family drama, there's still hope another streaming giant could pick it up.
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.
Here's some joyful Tuesday morning news for all the Stephen King horror fans and devoted Pennywise meme-makers. The It sequel finally has an official release date, and you won't have to wait 27 years to see what happens to the Losers Club. You will, however, have to wait a couple of years.
Now that Andy Muschietti's It is a huge hit, his adaptation of the second half of Stephen King's horror novel is more highly-anticipated than ever. A few minor quibbles aside, the first film is fantastic. But It: Chapter Two, as it's unofficially titled, deals with the characters as grown-ups. That makes it a trickier prospect.
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.
Two long years after being announced, there are signs that Warner Bros.' live-action Robotech movie might actually be moving forward. The Hollywood Reporter says that Andy Muschietti, fresh off directing the upcoming movie adaptation of Stephen King's horror classic It, has been hired to helm Robotech.
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.
We've already had an up-close look at Bill Skarsgård's Pennywise the Clown from the new It, but now you can see the suitably chilling body that sinister face is attached to.
The new big-screen adaptation of Stephen King's It won't be out until September 2017, but we're already very curious. Truthfully, we'd already be looking forward to the thing -- the book and the 1990 miniseries were both scary as hell -- but director Andy Muschietti is killing it with his sneak peeks on Instagram.
Andy Muschietti is best-known for the Jessica Chastain-starring horror movie Mama, but that will surely change once his two-part adaptation of Stephen King's It is released. The director has been posting behind-the-scenes snaps to his Instagram, including a possible peek at the story's most-feared character.
