“The Unlikely Connection Between ‘It’ And ‘A Wrinkle In Time'”

Who else but me would watch A Wrinkle in Time and go, “Hey, Michael Peña’s character sure does remind me of Pennywise the Dancing Clown”? Nobody, that’s who. That’s why I’m the one writing about this silly nonsense and not, like, someone else. 

I’m being a bit cheeky with this piece I did for Thrillist, but: Come on. Come on. Red is, in so many ways, the grandfather of Pennywise, and what with all of the real life horrors kids have to contend with in 2018 (like, y’know, school shootings and our government), and also what with the very close proximity between Andy Muschietti’s adaptation of It and Ava DuVernay’s adaptation of A Wrinkle in Time, I couldn’t not connect the dots between the two. So I did. Because that’s my job.
