Pennywise Is Back – IT Official First Trailer

Pennywise Is Back – IT Official First Trailer

Pennywise is back to terrify a new generation in this first trailer for the latest adaptation of Stephen King’s horror masterpiece, IT.

Bill Skarsgård dons the red wig and facepaint as the evil clown, Pennywise, in the latest adaptation of Stephen King’s horror novel IT. Stranger Things star, Finn Wolfhard, also features.

Directed by Andy Muschietti, IT looks set to breed a whole new generation of coulrophobia sufferers (the irrational fear of clowns) as a slew of child abductions motivates small gang of kids, united by their strange and terrifying encounters with an evil clown, resolve to hunt down and kill it.

A previous mini series of the same title sets a high bar in which Tim Curry starred as the evil clown. This movie adaptation certainly seems to maintain a similar sense of dread and should provide scares in abundance. It’s creepy clown time!

IT is scheduled for a September 8th cinematic release in both the U.K. and North America. Other regions should check IMDB for release dates.
