Stephen King’s spooky clown Pennywise is here for a visit. Stop in and say hi! Why: It’s Stephen King, but on the downside it’s not Tim Curry.

Kingsmen team up with the Statesmen to save a world held hostage. Why: The first one was fun.
Medical students experiment with death and resurrection, giving them a firsthand account of the afterlife. Why: If you liked the 1990 version, remakes are always better. Right? 😉

Gossip, Rumors and Other Guesses
In the stream:
CBS All Access: After several delays Star Trek: Discovery will debut on September 24th. Was it worth the wait? I hope so! FYI, if you get Netflix from outside the US or Canada you can watch it there also.
Reel Comic Books: Here are some of the trailers seen at ComicCon:
Remakes & Sequels: If you can’t make a sequel to an old beloved movie, make a prequel! Ryan Gosling is being considered to play Willy Wonka for the prequel in development.
Between the numbered Star Wars movies, we are looking forward to the stand-alone movies like Rogue One and the upcoming Han Solo movie. What’s next? Currently Disney and Lucasfilm is in the early stages of developing an Obi-Wan, Boba Fett, Yoda and a Jabba the Hutt movie.
Something Completely Different:
For the past several years, an effort has been underway to make a film about Freddy Mercury and the band Queen. Things are on the move again, the entire band cast with Rami Malek (Mr. Robot) as Mercury. Fox is setting the release date as December 2018 and will release with the name Bohemian Rhapsody. A better name would have been We are the Dark Ones…
Night Flier’s Pick
I both look forward to and dread seeing this movie when it comes out. The original is a classic that I have seen upward of 30+ times and the theatrical release with the voiceover is one of my all-time favorites.
I am thrilled to see more of this world and a continuation of the story, while acknowledging the track record of sequels made years after the original is not that great.
Ever the optimist, I am making Blade Runner 2049 my pick for Sept-Oct 2017. Cross your fingers with me!
