Stephen King's IT Remake Drops Photos, Rumored Trailer Release Wednesday

Prepare to face Derry’s resident evil clown. Stephen King’s It Remake just released a slew of photos ahead of its rumored trailer release on Wednesday. Judging by the elements on each image, we’re sure to have one frightful film that would definitely float.

‘It’ Remake Photos Revealed

The first “It” image gives us another look at the killer clown whom we know as Pennywise (Bill Skarsgård), who hides behind a red balloon he uses to lure kids to their death. The second photo shows a complete lineup of The Losers Club. You have stuttering Bill Denbrough (Jaeden Lieberher), the gentle Ben Hanscom (Jeremy Ray Taylor), the jokester and future disc jock Richie Tozier (Finn Wolfhard), clean-freak Stan Uris (Wyatt Oleff), history geek Mike Hanlon (Chosen Jacobs), sickly Eddie Kaspbrak (Jack Dylan Grazer) and tomboyish Beverly Marsh (Sophia Lillis). The final photo shows Pennywise stalking the Losers Club.

‘It’ Focuses on Loss of Innocence

Speaking to USA Today, director Andrés Muschietti says that the film will focus on the characters’ loss of innocence. “It happens in the book, this coming of age and kids facing their own mortality, which is something that in real life happens in a more progressive way and slowed down.” He adds, “There’s a passage (in “It”) that reads, ‘Being a kid is learning how to live and being an adult is learning how to die.’ There’s a bit of a metaphor of that and it just happens in a very brutal way.”

The story starts when children begin to disappear in the town of Derry, Maine. A group of young kids faces their biggest fears when they square off against the evil clown named Pennywise, whose history of murder and violence dates back for centuries. The 1990 “It” TV movie adaptation focused both on the kid and adult timelines of the book, but the remake will only focus on the pre-teen characters. It will be followed by a sequel that will continue the story of when they’re all grown up.

“It” hits theaters on September 8, 2017.
