As fans get more excited for the upcoming release of the cinematic re-adaptation of Stephen King’s classic novel, “IT,” the author reportedly banned one person from watching the movie. In a Twitter post, King posted that U.S. President Donald Trump is not allowed to see “It” or “Mr. Mercedes,” a series airing on Audience Network that depicts the story of a murderer driving a stolen Mercedes vehicle.

The ban is believed to be King’s way of retaliation after the 45th president of the United States blocked him on social media platform Twitter. King, however, is not the only famous person that was blocked by Trump as he is joined by supermodel Chrissy Teigen.

King vs. Trump

It is really not surprising to learn that Donald Trump has been blocking famous personalities on Twitter and one of whom is 69-year-old horror novel author, Stephen King. The “It” author, however, is not the type who easily surrenders as he continued to troll and criticize America’s commander-in-chief following the first blocking in June.

At the time, King even called Trump as “an impulsive, hot-headed 15-year-old with an 18-wheeler trucker’s license.” But in his recent tweet against the U.S.

president, he announced that he’s banning Trump from watching his movies, saying there will be “no clowns” for Trump and he can just “float” himself, ABC News noted.

Clowns-only screening

Speaking of King, the re-adaptation of one of his classic novels will be released next month.

As previously reported, child-eating clown Pennywise will haunt children again soon as “It” is set to premiere on Sept. 8 in the United States.

According to CNET, Alamo Drafthouse Cinema is offering three clowns-only screenings on Sept. 9. Based on the information found on its website, all participants should come wearing a clown costume.

Attendees will also get to enjoy a pre-party with face-painters, raffles, photo booth and other “terrifying merriment.”

‘It’ sequel

Prior to the release the movie, filmmaker Andres Muschietti confirmed that a sequel is currently in the works. Muschietti added the script for the sequel could be available in January, while production is expected to begin in March.

The film director also hinted that the first part of the movie, which will be released next month, will focus more on the children in Derry, Maine. The second installment, on the other hand, will depict the tales of the characters as adults or three decades later, with 1989 flashbacks, GameSpot revealed.

Cast and review

Prior to its release, the movie already earned mostly positive reviews while early reactions suggest that the film is “totally terrifying.” In fact, a group of critics praised the cinematic adaptation as “one of the finest ever made.

Despite being creepy and scary, the film is also “funny and adorably romantic,” as per Entertainment Weekly.

Meanwhile, “It” will feature actor Bill Skarsgård as the film’s main villain, Pennywise the Clown. He will be joined by Jaeden Lieberher (Bill Denbrough), Jack Dylan Grazer (Eddie Kaspbrak), Chosen Jacobs (Mike Hanlon), Wyatt Oleff (Stanley Uris), Jeremy Ray Taylor (Ben Hanscom), Sophia Lillis (Beverly Marsh), and Finn Wolfhard (Richie Tozier).
