first_img 0 It Chapter 2 is the second part of 2017’s blockbuster movie It based on Stephen King’s 1986 best-seller. “[The film is] still about that friendship those kids in chapter one developed and how they really became each other’s best friends to fight this evil,” Mustafa told CNET. “Don’t get me wrong, it’s horrifying, but it’s still touching.” postercropped Warner Bros. A new poster also hit Wednesday, showing a pair of ominous yellow clown eyes staring out from a face covered in white makeup. Those crimson-red slashes definitely can’t mean anything good. Chastain has said the film features one of the bloodiest scenes of any horror film, ever.  62 Photos Rick and Morty Comic-Con exclusive toy unboxing It Chapter 2 opens on Sept. 5 in Australia and on Sept. 6 in the US and UK.   6:21 Share your voice Originally published July 18, 1:42 a.m. PT. Update, 9:22 a.m. PT: Adds link to new trailer that just appeared online.  The new trailer for It Chapter 2 debuted to audiences at Comic-Con a day before it posted online. New Line Cinema Pennywise the evil clown is back, and creepy as ever. A trailer for It Chapter 2 debuted Wednesday night at San Diego Comic-Con ahead of its debut online Thursday, and if murderous clowns make you nervous, this footage won’t do anything to ease your terror. The It Chapter 2 trailer quickly reveals that 27 years after the first movie, most of the members of the Losers’ Club have somehow forgotten their horrific experiences after moving out of Derry, Maine, as adults.”Something happens to you when you leave this town,” Mike (Isaiah Mustafa) says. But since he didn’t leave, he remembers everything. The final clip appears to take place later in the film, and as such I won’t be revealing much about it. The Losers return to the old house seen at the end of the 2017 It film. Muschietti told the audience before airing the clip that the house is only visible to children, and apparently the Losers’ Club. This sequence leads to a horrifying reveal.

We also see sewers and lots of red balloons, which Pennywise clutches while flying through the air. We also see the reappearance of Georgie (Jackson Robert Scott) who is seen telling Beverly, “I died.”In addition to dealing with creepy kids, Beverly will also be covered in fake blood for at least a part of the film. So much blood Chastain said that she was thrilled to learn about the sequence from director Andy Muschietti. “Let’s make Carrie on steroids,” was her reaction, she told the audience at the Warner Bros. ScareDiego event where the trailer and three clips were shown.

The first two expand on sequences seen in the trailer.The first of the clips showed the reunion of the Losers’ Club as adults. It’s clear many of the friends haven’t stayed in close touch, zinging each other over who may or may not have gotten married. As the sequence continues, each character begins to remember their childhood, including the horrors of Pennywise.The second clip shows Bill running through a carnival in search of an unnamed child who is apparently being hunted by It.  Post a comment TV and Movies 2:28 More It Chapter 2last_img read more

3 Growth Strategies for Mobile Gaming

first_img There are seemingly an infinite number of mobile games in app stores these days. So much so that finding good games is often a struggle for consumers. While ranking charts and app store recommendations help, it’s easy to create a game and have it get lost in the sea of options before getting a single user. Some game developers have hacked the process and established suites of successful titles, while others have created one-off hits. Whatever the method, achieving success in gaming will depend on how the market develops in the coming year.Related: Infographic: The Gaming IndustryMarket research found that there are more than180 million mobile gamers in the U.S. as of 2016, and that number is projected to grow by at least another 12 million in 2017. With so many gamers, the opportunity to grow gaming franchises is significant. There are also countless opportunities to leverage the popularity of mobile gaming for marketing efforts, brand development and educational interests.Data shows that market penetration for mobile gaming is only at 55 percent, which means there are plenty of opportunities for developers and gaming companies to reach new consumer segments with successfully targeted games. There are a few proven strategies that have been successfully implemented by established gaming companies.“The app stores have changed significantly over the years and are now more competitive than ever before,” says Ilya Nikolayev, founder and CEO of Tapinator (TAPM), a mobile gaming company. “To control your own destiny, your game’s metrics need to be good enough to allow you to profitably acquire users for your title.” That is the goal of any gaming developer — to create titles that support long term growth. The following strategies will help any company in the mobile gaming space grow in 2017.1. Quantitative approach before creative.Games are a creative and recreational outlet for most players. Most people play for a chance to suspend reality and enjoy experiences they would not otherwise have time for. Many game companies start the development process with a creative approach in mind. If they want to create games that generate value, however, they would do better to start with a quantitative approach.Related: Has the Mobile Gaming Frenzy Caught in India Yet? This Entrepreneur Says Yes.The challenge is assessing whether or not the investment in development will result in the expected financial outcomes. Nikolayev explains how to engage with this problem. “This is a quantity-driven business where each engine allows us to quickly release new titles while minimizing additional development work for each game,” he says. “The main challenge here is building an install base for each game that is sufficiently large so as to monetize the product via advertising.”2. Create fast, iterate often.Another way to accelerate growth is by developing games quickly and making constant improvements. Nikolayev says that Tapinator has worked to develop two key categories of games — full-features and rapid-launch. Full-feature games are titles that keep people engaged with longer form content, while rapid-launch games tend to entice users by capitalizing on current trends.With the ability to make upgrades and additions over time, developers can deliver a simple gaming experience and improve it with time. This is not to say that you should develop a substandard game and improve it as you go. Everything has to start at a high quality. Otherwise, you risk upsetting users. Developing methods for creating games fast, however, helps maintain your competitive advantage.3. Create an ecosystem of apps for marketing.While some games start as singular successes, it is much more common for games to succeed as a part of a larger collection or franchise. Examples like PokemonGo are a rarity, and it is important to note that most one-off hits come from existing entertainment franchises. To ensure the success of a game, it is best to develop and release a series of similar titles under the same developer. In doing so, anytime a player enjoys one of your games, there is another waiting for them to try.“For rapid-launch games, the calculation is much simpler,” Nikolayev says. “We do not utilize paid marketing here and rely exclusively on our own cross-promotion network.” Brands looking to expand offerings in 2017 would benefit from a similar strategy.Related: This Entrepreneur Quit His Job to Start a Company — Any Company — After He Held an iPhone for the First Time. Now His Weight Loss App Has 30 Million Users.Whether you are a developer, marketer, gaming entrepreneur or something in between, these strategies will help you launch more successful brands in 2017. Focus on your audience, their unique needs and what kind of games will keep them engaged. Develop games with their revenue potential in mind, and you are more likely to create sustainable titles that deliver value in the long term. Always consider to how your existing users can inform the development process to ensure future games are just as successful. Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own.
