The brand new trailer for the upcoming Stephen King adaption has been released and it looks like everything we’ve ever feared has come back to life. It has easily become one of the most highly anticipated movies of 2017.There are few novelists superior to that of the twisted, but creative, mind of Stephen King. With well over 100 books in a variety of genres under his belt, King has had the pleasure of furnishing our minds with a wealth of nightmares.
“They float, they all float and you’re down here– you’ll float too.”
It, his 1986 novel, was no exception to that criteria. The epic novel is told in two parts, the first following seven children, or the Losers’ Club, in the 1950s as they are forced to encounter their worst fears in the form of a centuries-old, shapeshifting sadistic clown known as Pennywise. The second part follows that same children, now as adults, who must finally put an end to their childhood torment.
At close to 1,200 pages, It is a Magnus opus that takes the coming-of-age story genre and spins it into an unconventional yarn of horror and satire. The novel was adapted into two-part mini-series in 1990 with Tim Curry portraying Pennywise.
Now, 27 years later, we are finally getting a modernized interpretation of the novel with Bill Skarsgård as the manipulative clown.
There were plenty causes for concern as such an intricate novel can barely be told in a single film. After several attempts and fails to get the remake off the ground, the film is finally underway for a September 8 release date.
Check out the official trailer below! For now, though, check out this ominously frightening teaser trailer equipped with that infamous clown chuckle.
