Gary DeWaard Talks the Success of Andrés Muschietti’s It: Chapter 2

FOREST CITY, IOWA, USA, October 16, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ —
Film fanatic Gary DeWaard stays up-to-date with trending Hollywood news and keeps his online readers well-informed of exciting and upcoming releases. Below, he reports on the landmark success director Andrés Muschietti achieved through his remake of It, and the recent success of its sequel, in theaters now.

The original miniseries adaptation of Stephen King’s It connected television audiences with the infamous killer clown Pennywise during a three-hour production in 1990. While film aficionado Gary DeWaard has a soft spot for the original production, he marvels at how Andrés Muschietti successfully shared the horrific tale of Pennywise with an international audience and broadcasted Stephen King’s story like never before.

“The two films from Andrés Muschietti have already grossed more than a billion dollars between them, and the sequel is still in theaters,” says Gary DeWaard. “While he was given a much bigger budget than most horror films get––something like a hundred million dollars for both movies––the success of these films have exceeded even some Marvel films. I think the wide appeal comes mainly from Muschietti’s artsy, creative stylings.”

In the original miniseries featuring Tim Curry as the infamous clown, the practical effects were minimal, which helped capture an element of reality for the viewer. In the Muschietti films, however, the large budget made way for an epic spectacle for the eyes that’s full of abstract imagery and intense color.

“I think it’s safe to say Muschietti took the wide success of the first film and justified an even more grand depiction of the events in It: Chapter Two,” says Gary DeWaard. “The sequel looks like something on par with a Peter Jackson film and flexes all the high-quality computer graphics the budget could afford.”

Andrés Muschietti took the themes of nightmares and dreamlike elements to heart and delivered a truly unique experience for theater audiences. In addition to the abstract visuals and horrific monster effects, he invested a chunk of his budget into massive and detailed sets that transformed the small-town vibe of the original film into an epic otherworldly adventure.

In It: Chapter 2, the Losers return to their home town to battle the returned evil clown and face all the new terrors it creates for them. They venture deep into his home in the sewers and encounter its alien origins with plenty of trippy supporting visuals throughout.

“It’s a powerful film that ranges in effect from drama and romance to comedy and adventure in addition to all the expected horror,” Gary DeWaard says. “It’s a fun ride for audiences, and the nearly three-hour runtime is buried in an exciting tale with lots of highs and lows to keep audience members on the edge of their seats.”

It: Chapter 2 premiered at the beginning of September and has already amassed more than $400 million.

A Bird In The Deep Tells Really Life WWII Drama on the High Seas

A Bird In The Deep – Book Cover

James Krouse

A Bird In The Deep Tells A True Story of A Leadership Crisis During One Of The Most Critical Battles of WWII

This well-written history draws connections to an iconic novel and illuminates the lives of World War II sailors.”

— Kirkus Reviews

CLEVELAND, OHIO, USA, October 15, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — ATBOSH Media announces the publication of Bird in The Deep, the True Story of the USS Partridge. This debut from James Krouse explores a leadership crisis aboard a WWII minesweeper participating in the D-Day invasion. The book compares this true story with Herman Wouk’s popular wartime novel and film The Caine Mutiny. Krouse’s grandfather, Thurman Krouse served aboard the Partridge during WWII when the ship rescued ships targeted by German U-boats in the Atlantic and Caribbean and later in the invasion of Normandy.

“I grew up hearing stories about life aboard the Partridge during the war and some of the similarities with Caine,” says Krouse, who interviewed surviving crew members and their families as well as conducted extensive research at the National Archives in College Park. “In researching a connection with Wouk’s iconic work, I found an incredible story about leadership, sacrifice, and an under explored piece of the World War II narrative. I think that this is a truly underexplored part of the war and the Partridge tells a small, but compelling piece of that history.”

The USS Partridge was a WWI era minesweeper serving the first part of WWII as a rescue tug in the Caribbean. The ship’s crew grew close during the harrowing first months of the war that saw ship’s sinking daily around Puerto Rico and Cuba. The ship served with distinction but when a new captain assumed command, morale aboard the ship deteriorated quickly. This led a group of officers to a difficult choice between following a captain’s orders and preserving the safety of their ship and crew.

Kirkus Reviews praised Bird in the Deep saying "This well-written history draws connections to an iconic novel and illuminates the lives of World War II sailors." And calling it "…a story filled with detailed history and persuasive analysis of how one leader failed his men."

ATBOSH Media Ltd. in Cleveland, Ohio is more than just Krouse’s publisher. As an Agency Press they also serve as his literary agent for both the book and its derivative works including the television and film rights.

"We are a different type of publishing house," says publisher Jared Bendis. "Instead of shopping around James’s amazing book to larger publishing houses, we published the book and will now be shopping it around to larger houses for them to take it to the next level."

Larger publishing houses interested in publishing or distributing the work or production companies interested in optioning the work should contact Jared Bendis directly at jared@atbosh.com or call 216-288-6349.

The Aussie favourite joins the previously delayed series after playing the young Rebel Wilson in ‘Isn’t it Romantic.’

Alex Kis is truly a one-of-a-kind talent who is hilarious in every frame in which she appears. She will no doubt deliver a memorable performance only in the way someone of her comedic sensibility can”

— Alex Kis' US manager

LOS ANGELES, CA, USA, October 14, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Young Australian starlet Alex Kis has signed on to the second season of the award-winning Funny or Die series, ‘Unverified,’ where she will play the leading character Charmian Langley across a 13-episode season.

Kis’ representatives expressed excitement over her joining the show, which earlier this year delayed its second season because of scheduling conflicts. Kis’ attachment no doubt will revitalise the fan-favourite mockumentary.

“Alex Kis is truly a one-of-a-kind talent who is hilarious in every frame in which she appears. She will no doubt deliver a memorable performance only in the way someone of her comedic sensibility can,” her LA-based manager stated.

2018 has proved to be an exciting year for the prodigious talent. Familiar to audiences for her appearances in campaigns for Commbank and Arnott’s Shapes, Alex has become a regular on Seven’s ‘The Morning Show’, filmed multiple episodes on ‘News of the Wild,’ and popped up in ABC hit ‘Hardball.’ She was also nominated for ‘Best Actress’ at the St. Kilda Film Festival for her starring role in the film ‘Disco Dykes.’

Alex’s notable appearance in ‘Isn’t it Romantic’ alongside megastars Liam Hemsworth and Rebel Wilson was also marked by a memorable appearance on the red carpet at the star-studded LA premiere. The youngster also blitzed the promotional trail and appeared in trailers that generated millions of views all over the world. ‘Isn’t it Romantic’ has since become Netflix’s 3rd highest rating film amongst 300 million subscribers all over the world, and generated a strong return at the US domestic box office.

Kis is expected to film and take part in promotional activities across the US over a substantial period.

StoryWeaver Games’ innovative Horror Movie RPG hits Kickstarter

Slaughter Game Box Set Contents

Slaughter Game Sample Stages_What’s in the box?

Slaughter: The Horror Movie-Making Game that lets you direct your own horror movie is a game changer.

While most RPGs have mechanics that promote survival of PCs, Slaughter encourages players to kill off their protagonists & other members of the cast characters in brilliantly creative ways,”

— Doc' Joe Sweeney

SYDNEY, NEW SOUTH WALES, AUSTRALIA, October 14, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — StoryWeaver Games, an Australian independent games publishing company, recently launched a Kickstarter for its card-based horror movie-making roleplaying game, called Slaughter.

Slaughter is a unique addition to StoryWeaver Games’ current arsenal of popular tabletop RPGs. It is interesting because it is half card game, half tabletop game… all fun.

The game is improvised storytelling, with cards being used to inject characters and tropes into the movie script. One player – the Director – guides the movie using cards for scenes, special effects and hooks. The other players – Actors – take on characters cards from an available cast and add additional talent and flaw cards to drive the movie in twisted ways. Every story is unique. Every story wildly imaginative. Not even the Director knows exactly what to expect.

Kill Your Darlings
With Slaughter, players can create lovable, fun and flawed characters… and then take sinful pleasure in killing them off in ghastly ways. A unique Death Point mechanic rewards players for killing off their character and cast. And replacing a player's character from the cast of extras takes less than a minute.

“While most RPGs have mechanics that promote survival of player characters, Slaughter encourages players to kill off their protagonists and other members of the cast characters in brilliantly creative, ways,” said Doc’ Joe Sweeney, the game’s designer. “The survivability of player characters in most horror PRGs is a problem, because that is not how horror movies work. So we’ve designed the entire game to mimic great horror movies – from 60s Hammer Horror, to 70s Grindhouse, 80s schlock and modern franchises and remakes, and everything in between. While the game rewards players for killing the cast, they always end up with an authentic horror movie story… and maybe a surprise survivor or two.”

Simple, fast, and beautiful

The game rules are simple so that anyone can play. Most of nuanced rules of the game are on the horror-movie poster themed cards, so players always know what is possible for their characters. Slaughter is perfect for introducing friends to gaming, or for getting the regular gaming gang together for an evening of murder and mayhem.

The base boxed set includes cards decks for running Slasher and Monster style movies (such as Scream, Halloween and Alien) and a Zombie and Survival Horror style movies (such as Dawn of the Dead, Resident Evil, Aliens among others.)

Award winning comic and game artist Andi Ewington has provided stunning movie-poster themed art for the boxed set, giving the game an authentic cinematic feel. In addition, the early bird backers receive an exclusive set of bonus cards featuring London Horror Festival characters.

Social proof

Slaughter was developed over four years with constant play-testing and adjustments to refine the game. Its public beta release was met with an overwhelming positive response at CanCon, Australia’s largest annual games convention. Watch what the players have to say about the game here.

Dirk Cussler chose the 2019 winner. Jeff Edwards awarded Landon Beach's "The Sail" and A.W. Baldwin's "Raptor Canyon" as co-finalists.

Winning the AWC competition “validated my decision to pursue full-time writing. I stopped my teaching career, and I felt like I could do it. It’s a wonderful validation.”

— AWC Grandmaster winner Jake Avilla

PHOENIX, AZ, USA, October 14, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Dirk Cussler, best-selling author and Adventure Writers Competition finalist judge announced Jake Avila, author of the action-thriller novel "Cave Diver" as the winner of the 2019 Clive Cussler Grandmaster Award at the Clive Cussler Collector’s Society convention. During his acceptance speech, Jake said he was “surprised and delighted, a wonderful feeling”. He also recognized his co-finalists Landon Beach (The Sail) and A.W. Baldwin (Raptor Canyon), now his friends, and mentioned how honored he was to be in such company. All books are available on Amazon.

“It is no small feat to write an adventure novel that grabs a reader’s interest and keeps them turning the pages until the end,” said Dirk Cussler to a crowded room the final night of the convention. “All three of you were able to do that. Fantastic reads.”

Traveling all the way from Australia to the award ceremony with his father Ian, Jake said that winning the AWC competition “validated my decision to pursue full-time writing. I stopped my teaching career, and I felt like I could do it. It’s a wonderful validation. When you are an independent author it’s so hard top cut through, so hard to be noticed.

We exist to help writers get their work noticed. That’s it. And these three gentlemen deserve to be noticed!”

MVB RECORDS 2006 Trademark

Original MVB RECORDS trademark

Pop music artist Jewels signed a record deal in early September, and it is now October and she's already on her second single via MVB RECORDS.

The 'Amerie esque' beat on "Move For Me" is already a winner, but tie in Jewels lyrical wordplay and this follow up single to "Fallin" will sure raise eye brows”

— David Kessler

BRONX, NY, UNITED STATES, October 13, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — It has not been more than three weeks since newly signed Pop artist Jewels dropped her first single "Fallin", and she has just released her second single "Move For Me" on iTunes pre-order. The Puerto Rican Brooklynite; originally from Bronx, NY, is writing and creating music so fast that her record label (MVB RECORDS) has her in the recording studio every week; sometimes for eight hour recording sessions. "Move For Me" by Jewels is a very catchy single that is sure to keep this new Pop artist in the playlists of her fans and new listeners.

The new single showcases Jewels polished vocals and strong song writing skills, with lines that are sure to hook its listeners like "Feeling on my body, got you really feeling naughty, If you often think about me better show me right now". The 'Amerie esque' beat on "Move For Me" is already a winner, but tie in Jewels lyrical wordplay and this follow up single to "Fallin" will sure raise eye brows and peak listeners interest in MVB RECORDS' first female Pop and R&B artist.

"Move For Me" has an official release date of October 28th. Jewels long time YouTube supporters and fans will get the chance to pre-order the song on iTunes on Sunday, October 13th. If Apple Music jumps ahead of the crowd and makes the song available as a pre-release (like her first single) then her eager fans who subscribe to Apple Music will get a special treat right before Halloween.

If Jewels first two singles are any indication of what is to come from this new Pop artist, then she is without a doubt someone to keep an eye and ear on. Fans and listeners can find her on social media by using the handle @TalentedJewels.
