Warner Bros. just dropped the terrifying full trailer for the upcoming adaptation of Stephen King's It, and It is terrifying.
The new trailer reveals a little more of the storyline than the last, showing that the group of boys terrorised by the dark, brooding force embodied by the clown band together to beat it. Jaeden Lieberher, a terrific young actor who shined in Midnight Special and also appeared in this year's The Book of Henry, stars as Bill Denbrough. We then see the iconic scene of Georgie chasing his paper made boat in a storm when he encounters Pennywise for the first time, in a sewer drain. This film will follow only the novel's 1958 timeline, in which a gang of pre-teen outcasts called The Losers' Club battle with Pennywise. Some recognizable names include Bill Skarsgard (Hemlock Grove) as Pennywise The Dancing Clown and Finn Wolfhard (Stranger Things) as Richie Tozier. And we know from the recent trailer that the movie looks creepy, eerie, and everything in between. The unnerving chant of "you'll float, too" on repeat doesn't help, either.
The beauty about these trailers have all promised a heart filled, terrifying remake of Stephen King's IT and the official IT trailer delivers on that promise. The film looks to be much more horrifying than the 1990 adaptation, with Pennywise's new design and attitude seeming far less comical and more sinister in comparison to Tim Curry's memorable portrayal.
"When you're alone as a kid, the monsters see you as weaker".
It is set to start clowning around in theaters on September 8, a date after which all children's birthday parties will never feel quite right.
The film will be in United Kingdom cinemas on September 8th.
