From New Line Cinema, director Andy Muschietti (Mama) and based on the acclaimed novel by master author Stephen King, comes the big-screen adaptation of IT. Starring Jaeden Lieberher, Finn Wolfhard, Sophia Lillis, Jack Dylan Grazer, Wyatt Oleff, Chosen Jacobs, Jeremy Ray Taylor and Bill Skarsgard. The film (part one) hits theaters on September 8, 2017.
In a small town in Maine, seven children known as The Losers Club come face to face with life problems, bullies and a monster that takes the shape of a clown called Pennywise.
For a teaser trailer, this remake of IT is looking mighty spot-on if I don’t say so myself… While some people have fond memories of the original TV mini-series, I think that director Andy Muschietti has nailed the tone of the novel much more closely this time around judging from the vibe we get here. No dialog from Pennywise the clown? Unless I missed it, but holy shit does he look scary. If nothing else Bill Skarsgard will likely be pegged as one helluva creepy villain for the rest of his life depending how IT turns out when it hits theaters just after Summer. Don’t let your kids play outside in Maine — that place is just…. Just don’t… My goodness.
