Check Out the First Trailer for Stephen King’s ‘It’: You’ll Float Too
The first official trailer for Mama director Andrés Muschietti’s long awaited It remake dropped today.
Based on Stephen King’s 1986 novel of the same name, the films trailer begins in 1957 with a scene those familiar with the Master of Horror’s works know very well. A six-year-old “Georgie” Denbrough chases his newspaper boat into the gutter, where he is greeted by none other than Pennywise the Clown.
We are then introduced to the film’s seven child protagonists, collectively known as “The Loser’s Club.” Together, they will discover what’s really behind the iconic villain’s red balloons and face paint.
Bill Skarsgård, who is best known for his roles in The Divergent Series: Allegiant and Hemlock Grove, will play Pennywise. Skarsgård is the son of actor Stellan Skarsgård, perhaps best known as Dr. Erik Selvig in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and the younger brother of True Blood’s Alexander Skarsgård.
It is the second adaptation of King’s terrifying small town tale; the first being the 1990 miniseries, which features Tim Curry as the shape shifting clown that terrorizes the children of Derry, Maine.
“It’s such an extreme character. Inhumane,” Skarsgård told Entertainment Weekly last summer. “It’s beyond even a sociopath, because he’s not even human. He’s not even a clown. I’m playing just one of the beings It creates.”
The actor also said he admired Curry’s previous performance, but insisted on doing “something different” with the role. “I’ll never be able to make a Tim Curry performance as good as Tim Curry,” he added.
It, which is slated to hit theaters on September 8th, is reportedly planned as the first installment in a two-part series.
“We’re taking it and making the movie from the point of view of the kids, and then making another movie from the point of view of the adults, that would potentially then be cut together like the novel,” producer Roy Lee told Collider last year.
The second film is rumored to begin filming this month under a secret title, but the studio has yet to confirm the project.
