It’s finally here! After what feels like ages, the highly anticipated first official trailer for Stephen King’s IT has dropped and holy shiz balls, it looks utterly amazing! Why some are saying this is a remake I disagree. This looks like it’s an even more closer adaptation of King original novel than what we got in the 1990 two part telemovie that starred Tim Curry in the titular role.
For those not in the know, the storyline revolves around a group of young kids in Derry, Maine who come face-to-face with their worst fears as they square of again evil terrorising their town called Pennywise, whose history of murder and violence spans back centuries.
Check out the trailer below
A massive fan of the novel and as a kid the movie had me petrified of drains. Tim Curry was superb as the child devouring clown known as Pennywise but it looks like we’re getting an even more disturbing take in the form of Bill Skarsgård. I love how very little is shown of the child killing clown which adds to the mystery of it even more.
Originally when I heard we were getting another attempt at IT I was hesitant, because it was such an iconic film, however it looks Andrés Muschietti has directed a horror masterpiece. If this wasn’t exciting enough this is only part one of two movies.
Bring on September 8!
