We’ve already seen a teaser trailer for IT, director Andy Muschietti’s adaptation of the Stephen King novel (which was previously turned into a miniseries). But just in case that first clip wasn’t terrifying enough, a new full-length trailer for the upcoming horror film has crawled out of the sewers.
While the original novel contained two narratives, set some three decades apart, this version of IT will focus solely on one of those stories, about a group of children in Derry, Maine who band together to combat an evil that has been haunting their small town for generations. If the film performs well at the box office, expect a sequel to tell the other half of the story.
Bill Skarsgård (Allegiant, TV’s Hemlock Grove) stars as Pennywise the Clown, and will be joined by an impressive ensemble of young talent that includes Jaeden Lieberher, Jeremy Ray Taylor, Sophia Lillis, Finn Wolfhard, Wyatt Oleff, Chosen Jacobs, Jack Dylan Grazer and Nicholas Hamilton.
IT opens in theaters on September 8.
New Line Cinema’s horror thriller “IT,” is based on the hugely popular Stephen King novel of the same name, which has been terrifying readers for decades.
When children begin to disappear in the town of Derry, Maine, a group of young kids are faced with their biggest fears when they square off against an evil clown named Pennywise, whose history of murder and violence dates back for centuries.
