First Trailer for Andrés Muschietti's New Take on Stephen King's 'It'
"I saw something. There was this…" "Clown?" Warner Bros has unveiled the first trailer for the new take on the horror classic It, adapted from Stephen King's novel, about the sadistic, evil clown who haunts a town in Maine and takes their children. This new version of It stars Bill Skarsgård as the story's central villain, Pennywise. Also starring an ensemble of young actors including Jaeden Lieberher, Jeremy Ray Taylor, Sophia Lillis, Finn Wolfhard, Wyatt Oleff, Chosen Jacobs, Jack Dylan Grazer and Nicholas Hamilton. This updated take on It has been in development for years, with various directors attached, and now it's finally ready to haunt us again. From the footage in this tease, it seems like a stylish and thrilling update, but also still scary as all hell. I quite like this teaser, I'm happy that they didn't reveal him fully yet.
Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Andrés Muschietti's It, direct from WB's YouTube:
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 is directed by Argentinian filmmaker Andrés Muschietti, who made his feature directorial debut with the horror feature Mamá. His short originally got the attention of Guillermo del Toro. The It screenplay is written by Gary Dauberman & Chase Palmer & Cary Fukunaga; adapted from Stephen King's horror novel of the same name, first published 1986. Warner Bros will release Muschietti's It in theaters everywhere starting September 8th this fall. Your thoughts? How does it look?

I love the cinematography. I have high hopes this will be better than the boring and overlong version released in the 90s.

First it was my childhood, guess it'll be my adulthood as well ha. This looks really good x I hope bring back the horror genre in a new way too.

Man, they have an uphill battle with this one. As bad as most of the tv movie is, Tim Curry completely owned it. Best of luck to the new guy, but people won't be able to help comparing the two performances, as different as they may be.

Cool. Looks like they may have made something to be proud of. Maybe. Dig the clown.

This looks 10x better than the miniseries but Bill Skarsgard's portrayal of IT will make or break this film. I want to be terrified like I how was back then!

I did not have high hopes when I heard about the remake but I am looking forward to it now.

I loved the 1990 mini-series, but to compare the two on an equal level is a bit unfair. The mini-series would have had budget constrains and was subject to television censorship. This is a feature film and it looks fantastic. Stephen King has said he's very happy with it. Nobody can touch Tim Curry so I hope Skarsgard makes Pennywise his own. Just think Jack Nicholson's Joker vs Heath Ledger's. Both different yet great.

I don't see anything special. Never was much into that story and couldn't understand what so scary about it. Of course, I saw that one from 1990. It just looks like someone has not read enough of Freud. Sorry, nothing more ..

This looks indeed like remake, no doubt about it. Same storyline, same vibe. But i think the studio screwed this up by not taking will Poulter as pennywise and Cary fukunaga as director. This looks mediocre, nothing more nothing less. It was a budget problem with Fukunaga, he had a strong vision about the storyline, now its just a new version for young people. By the way :pennywise did scare the hell out of me in those days...

Who do I give $1000 to in order to watch this ASAP. The hype meter went up on this one. I'm more excited about Pennywise than Alien : Covenant.

Hmm, well this is definitely lookin like my most anticipated film of the year. Just hope it lives up to the hype better than Jason Bourne did.
