The first trailer for Andrés Muschietti’s It remake has finally arrived, and it is damn promising. Check it out below:
So, while Pennywise (Bill Skarsgård) is mostly kept in the shadows, and dialogue-free, he is a constant presence throughout, and there’s a nicely soured tone to the whole of Derry. This is a town gone to rot, and that definitely comes across in this trailer.
Apart from Muschietti’s vision of Derry, what’s most exciting about this is that the Losers’ Club seem perfect so far. There’s a lot of nice little touches to the book, but It really lives and dies with us caring about these kids. We also love that tagline (“What are you afraid of?”) and it definitely looks like It is going for R-rated, scare the living hell out of you. We’ve got every finger crossed…
“New Line Cinema’s horror thriller IT, directed by Andrés Muschietti (Mama), 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.
IT stars Bill Skarsgård (Allegiant, TV’s Hemlock Grove) as the story’s central villain, Pennywise. An ensemble of young actors also star in the film, including Jaeden Lieberher (Midnight Special), Jeremy Ray Taylor (Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip), Sophia Lillis (37), Finn Wolfhard (TV’s Stranger Things), Wyatt Oleff (Guardians of the Galaxy), Chosen Jacobs (upcoming Cops and Robbers), Jack Dylan Grazer (Tales Of Halloween) and Nicholas Hamilton (Captain Fantastic).”
