IT (2017)

Pennywise, the dancing clown, is creeping back into theaters in the reboot of the Stephan King Classic “IT”!

Derby, Maine is like any other small town in America. Kids hang out in clicks, people pick on the nerdy ones and call them losers and the town bully spends all his time beating on the weakest ones. Derby does lead the nation on mysterious child disappearances.

Bill Denbrough (Jaeden Lieberher) suffers from a stutter when he speaks, so he and his friends are labeled “losers” by the kids at school. Bill in bed sick on a rainy day, but was still able to make his little brother Georgie (Jackson Robert Scott) a paper sailboat that he can sail down the street in the puddles. Georgie is unable to keep up with the boat that sails down the sewer. As Georgie peers down looking for the boat he sees a red balloon held by a clown who also has his boat.

Bill won’t stop looking for his little brother and with the assistance of his friends Ritchie (Finn Wolfhard), Eddie (Jack Dylan Grazer) and Stanley (Wyatt Oleff) continue to search the sewers in hopes of finding a clue.

Diana, an Amazon princess, is working in Paris at the Luv when a shipment from Wayne Enterprises arrives. Bruce located the original picture of Wonder Woman and the soldiers in WW1 and sent it to her with a note “You’ll have to tell me about this”. This was a fantastic way to transition to the Wonder Woman origin story.

Diana, daughter of Queen Hyppolyta (Connie Nielsen) was a gift from Zeus for her to raise on the island of Themiscyra. Themiscyra is an island in the Atlantic Ocean but is hidden from site to keep intruders away and keep the Amazons hidden from Aries, the god of war who is bent on their destruction. The Amazons are charged by Zeus to protect the world from evil. Diana is eager to learn to fight as her sisters do, but her mother forbids it. Diana’s aunt Antiope (Robin Wright), the general of the Amazon army, agrees to secretly train the girl to protect her if Aries does return. The Princess becomes the best fighter on the island as she gets older.

 

Steve Trevor (Chris Pine) is shot down by the Germans as he was escaping with a notebook that can end WW1 quickly. Trevor is just off the coast of Themiscyra and is trapped in his plane as it sinks. Diana dives from a cliff and rescues the soldier. She is amazed as he is the first man she has seen. The German ships are close behind him looking for the plane and find the island. The Germans land on the island and battle with the Amazons. The women are victorious with Trevor’s help. Queen Hyppolyta agrees to help Steve return to London with the information to stop the war, but is saddened to find that Diana has chosen to go with him.
