A new trio of pictures from the upcoming It remake has arrived ahead of the upcoming trailer (we cannot wait to see that), and they give us a new look at the Losers’ Club and the monster itself, Pennywise the dancing clown.
The new pics (via USA Today and Bloody Disgusting) give us a good look at Jaeden Lieberher, Finn Wolfhard, Jack Dylan Grazer, Sophia Lillis, Wyatt Oleff, Chosen Jacobs, and Jeremy Ray Taylor, who play Bill Denborough, Richie Tozier, Eddie Kaspbrak, Beverly Marsh, Stan Uris, Mike Hanlon and Ben Hanscom respectively.
And there’s Bill Skarsgård as Pennywise, who’s never short of balloons to tempt unfortunate children into the sewers with.
The first trailer for the film will arrive on Wednesday, and we can’t wait to see what Skarsgård’s take on Pennywise is looking like. Muschietti dropped a few hints in the USA Today piece, including this little nugget of information:
“It’s established that Pennywise takes the shape of your worst fear. He doesn’t have a steady behaviour, he doesn’t expose how he thinks, and that’s what makes him really unpredictable…[he is a] feeling of dread that grows in people’s minds.”
Of course, we’re going to have to wait and see how this film does at the box office before the second half of the story is greenlit, and Muschietti said that there are elements in the film “that make you think about what will happen 30 years later when Pennywise comes again.” We all love the 1990 TV movie, particularly the incredible performance by Tim Curry, and we’ve got our fingers crossed that Muschietti and his team have come up with something special for our return trip to Derry.
