F I L M S ( 2 0 1 7 + 2 0 1 9)In September 2017, a film adaptation of Stephen King's novel It was released to overwhelming success (from both critics and audiences alike), marking the largest opening box office ever for a horror movie. This film focused on the characters as children and their first encounter and battle with Pennywise or "It".
In September 2019, the second film adaptation of Stephen King's novel was released, titled It Chapter Two. This film focused on the characters as adults (with flashbacks to their childhood), having returned to Derry upon the call of the one friend who remained, noting their promise to return if "It" came back...
The films were equal parts comedy and horror, with the relationship and dialogue between The Losers Club at it's strong center. This is very important, as it is key to King's story.
The Losers Club:
They soon come to the conclusion that it is up to them to defeat Pennywise, as no adult will believe them and spend much time denying anything bad is even happening. The Losers Club first take the battle to him, and this almost destroys their bond and friendship... But they carry on and prevail...
But they make promises to return to fight "IT" again if he comes back... and most of them will keep this promise, most...
