Horror and Stephen King fans have equal reason to get excited as the first trailer of the acclaimed Horror novel IT has just dropped.
As well as King’s loved novel, 90’s kids will remember the TV miniseries that was later combined as a feature film. Following seven youngsters in the town of Derry. Outcasts and self confessed ‘Losers’ the seven know that something is wrong with their town but must face this truth head on when member Bill’s younger brother Georgie is murdered, in mysterious circumstances. Haunted by the vision of a grotesque and shape shifting clown that can take the form of a child’s worst fears. IT (Pennywise) torments and terrorises the gang who vow to stop him from killing again.
These trailers and clips prove that this adaptation is faithful to the source material. Including the iconic scene of young Georgie chasing his paper boat into the sewer. The image of the demonic clown is no less frightening and strange happenings, including invisible balloons and moving photos fill this scary taste of what’s to come. Directed by Andres Muschietti, who previously directed Mama.
Whether Bill Skarsgard can fill the shoe’s of Tim Curry as Pennywise is yet to be seen but the trailers and clips should gives fans hope. The film also stars a mixture of unknown and known young actors including Finn Wolfhard of Stranger Things fame. The original child cast were also greatly applauded for their performances so let’s hope they have picked ‘The Losers Club’ well.
IT is out 23rd September
