IT Remake Will Be Released In IMAX

Stephen King’s IT will receive an IMAX release. Despite how common it is for King’s work to be adapted for film or TV, it’s hard to remember the last time a King adaptation had this much positive buzz heading into its release date. While The Dark Tower just barely managed to edge out 1408 for biggest opening weekend to date for a King-based film, it seems likely that IT might shatter that record by a wide margin.

Of course, director Andy Muschetti’s R-rated take on IT has some big, floppy clown shoes to fill, at least when it comes to how well-known the 1990 TV miniseries adaptation of IT has become, thanks mostly …

Iron Man: 15 Worst Things Tony Stark Has Ever Done

Like all long-running superhero characters, Tony Stark, AKA Iron Man, has seen his fair share of ups and downs. First created in 1963 by comic book luminary Stan Lee, Tony Stark was conceived with the idea of turning an unlikable archetype – that of a wealthy, capitalistic industrialist – into a relatable hero for fans of all ages and ideologies. He largely succeeded, although the character remained something of a “B-tier” hero until his game-changing appearance in the 2008 Iron Man film, starring Robert Downey Jr. Today, Iron Man is a cultural icon, right up there with …

Before you think the show is going to forget about Spider-Man’s incredible rogues’ gallery, you needn’t worry. As Marvel’s Senior Vice President, Animation and Family Entertainment, Cort …
