I’ll be honest with you, the ‘It’ scared the hell out of me as a young child.
Both the original series and this film are based off horror writer legend Stephen King‘s novel by the same name. The film follows Bill Denbrough (Jaeden Lieberher) and a group of boys who live in the small town of Derry, Maine. A number of people have either died or disappeared, and no one seems to know why. The answer is Pennywise, the dancing clown (Bill Skarsgård). In the 90’s show, Stephen King’s It the boys defeat the demon clown, grow up, and return thirty years later to battle Pennywise. This film seems like it’s going to stay with the young boy’s timeline. It’s hard to tell from the first trailer of Skarsgård can live up to the iconic Tim Curry portrayal, but if this trailer shows anything, the movie will be terrifying.
It releases September 8, 2017.
