As if Stephen King hadn’t already taken over your TV, The Mist is starting to roll in. Spike’s ten-episode adaptation of the iconic tale gets a first full trailer with a re-imagined premise, ahead of a June premiere.
There are two groups who are going to feel personally victimized about the new It movie: young children, because Pennywise eats them, and real-life professional clowns. It’s no secret that most people are afraid of clowns — that’s the whole reason Pennywise appears as a clown in Stephen King’s novel in the first place. But folks who make their living as clowns are afraid the new movie will only exacerbate those fears and make it much more difficult to land grade school birthday party gigs.
