Stephen King's It Movie Header

Stephen King’s IT
Directed by Andy Muschietti
Written by Chase Palmer, Cary Fukunaga, and Gary Dauberman
Starring Bill Skarsgård, Jaeden Lieberher, Jeremy Ray Taylor, Sophia Lillis, Finn Wolfhard, Wyatt Oleff, Chosen Jacobs, Jack Dylan Grazer, Nicholas Hamilton, Jackson Robert Scott
Warner Bros. Pictures
Release date: September 8, 2017

The first adaptation of Stephen King‘s novel It was a 1990 mini-series starring Tim Curry as the child-eating monster. The ambitious project from director Tommy Lee Wallace tried in vain to fit all 1,100 pages of King’s epic novel into two 2-hour blocks and the results were a mixed bag. The first half is nearly universally beloved thanks to some great child acting and Curry chewing the scenery and stealing nights of sleep as Pennywise the Dancing Clown. The second half focuses on the adults 27 years later returning to stop the evil again and it falters heavily from cheesy overacting and a universally “be-loathed” giant spider ending.

Coincidentally, it’s 27 year later, and Mama director Andy Muschietti took what worked back in 1990 and focused an entire film on it with Stephen King’s IT.

‘It’ Trailer: This Cursed Town Has Got A Serious Clown Problem

Pennywise It Trailer

Clowns are pretty much at the top of the list of things to be afraid of. Though they can bring laughter with slapstick comedy, but one can’t get over the fact that there is something truly terrifying about them as well. Which is why coulrophobia — the fear of clowns — has been popularized in pop culture. And we owe a great deal of thanks to Pennywise from Stephen King‘s novel It for manifesting those fears of clowns.

A brand new adaptation of It, from Mama director Andy Muschietti, is just a few more months away, and now WB has released a new trailer that brings back all those fears we thought we suppressed. Check it out here below.

Pennywise in Stephen King's It

If you’re still holding out hope that the upcoming movie adaptation of Stephen King‘s horror tale It will still be awesome despite the very rocky road it has traveled, then you will no doubt be interested in seeing the first official image of the new Pennywise the Clown.

Pennywise is the best known form that It—an evil being that torments children by taking on the forms of their greatest fears—takes on. Tim Curry memorably played the character in the ’90s TV movie adaptation of the book. A much younger actor, 25-year-old Bill Skarsgard, was cast to take on the character in this latest adaptation.

Get your first peek at the new Pennywise the Dancing Clown in the image below.
