The Rock has declared It to be one of his favourite films of all time, despite that fact it has just come out
If it’s good enough for The Rock, it’s good enough for us.
The new adaptation of Steven King’s It has been getting love form critics and audiences alike since it hit cinemas this weekend – it has already broken box office records and currently sits at 88% on Rotten Tomatoes. We’ve also seen it, and we can confirm it is very good.
But what if that’s not enough for you? What if none other than the Most Electrifying Man in Sports Entertainment, the Great One, Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, told you that it was one of the best films he’s ever seen?
Well that’s what happened. Johnson took to Instagram to declare that It “instantly became one of [his] all time favorites. Easily TOP 10 all time.”
🎈 I saw an early screening of IT a few months ago and it instantly became one of my all time favorites. Easily TOP 10 all time. Not only does it redefine the horror genre, but it's so layered, smart and brilliantly scary. Congrats to the awesome young cast aka The Losers Club for killing their performances. To Bill Skarsgard for delivering an iconic performance as Pennywise. And to the entire crew and my good buds at Warner Bros/New Line. And most of all congrats to director, Andy Muschietti for making such a defining film. You knocked it outta the f*cking park! Great talking with you man and we're gonna have some fun working together down the road. As a huge fan of the horror genre, this one's special. Have you fully recovered @simonegjohnson? 😉 #IT Congrats David Katzenberg you handsome MF!
Wow. That’s quite a statement. You don't normally want to officially put a film in your top 10 straight away. Give it a bit of time to mull on it, surely.
The Rock sadly doesn’t confirm what other movies are in his top 10, but we hope The Scorpion King is in there.
