Celebrate the Home Video Release of ‘IT’ With Amazing Gallery of Behind the Scenes Photos

Last year’s IT is now available on 4K Ultra HD, DVD and Blu-ray!

If you’re looking for striking, terrifying images that are “cover of Fangoria” cool, you won’t find many movies with more packed into them than Andy Muschietti’s IT. You can freeze frame during literally any scene featuring Pennywise and you’ll get an iconic shot, so it should come as no surprise that even the behind the scenes photography is just as badass.

We tip our hats to the FB page Freaked for bringing this collection of high-def behind the scenes images to our attention, most of them showcasing the incredible costuming and makeup work that went into creating Bill Skarsgård’s new iteration of Pennywise. From the look down to the performance, easily the most brilliant reinvention of a villain in history.

These shots really show off the new Pennywise in all his glory.

IT arrived on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Combo Pack/Blu-ray Combo Pack/DVD today, January 9, 2018. Best Buy got an exclusive Steelbook, while Target got their own version that includes a lenticular cover and a special set of “Welcome to Derry” postcards.

Oddly enough, Walmart got an Exclusive DVD release.

Special Features include:

  • Pennywise Lives! –  Discover how Bill Skarsgård prepared to portray the primordial creature known as Pennywise the Dancing Clown
  • The Losers’ Club – Get up close and personal with the teenage stars of “IT” as they bond together during the production,
  • Author of Fear  Stephen King reveals the roots of his best-selling novel, the nature of childhood fear and how he created his most famous monster, Pennywise
  • Deleted Scenes – Eleven deleted or extended scenes from the film

    Good grief, BD, do you have shares in this bloody film?

    • abyx34

      I think they do, either that or they have a bad taste… This movie was such a mess.

      • xcalibrate ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

        I hear you. I thought the kids performances, on the whole, were great but Pennywise was about as scary as something not particularly scary. ‘Cue; runs at the camera and goes blurgh, argh’

        • abyx34

          Oh yes, it happened more than once and it was pathetic,…I wasn’t scared or creeped out at any point in the film, whilist the original IT gave me nightmares, I can’t forget the scene where Geordie’s brother takes old Giordie’s family photos and suddenly the blood starts to ooze out of them, dripping on the floor, coloring it red… It was so creepy and sad at the same time, also because I had a little brother the same age at the time I watched it… Anyway in the remake, there wasn’t such a scene, I guess the bloody bathroom scene replaced it. All in all everything felt kinda pushed, rushed and out of place …Like it was made by someone who does not know what subtlety in storytelling is. On a final note I also couldn’t process how a fat kid who looks 9 can flirt with a hot girl that looks like she’s 17, and then she filrts back with him as well… I don’t know what was the point of this, but it sure felt unecessary and out of place throughout the whole movie.

  • DukeStKing

    Those are pretty good. But dude, calm down! The most brilliant reinvention in history? Relax!

      What I said was, “the most brilliant reinvention of a villain in history.”

      What’s your pick for that particular honor?

      • Creepshow

        For starters… 2 Jokers.

        Nicholson & Ledger.
        (that’s a double whammy for playing the same clown)

        Everyone else can feel free to add on…

      • DukeStKing

        Some would argue Anthony Hopkins’ Hannibal. Or Mads version. Though I see Brian Cox as the definitive Hannibal. Pennywise? Perhaps for 2017. But in history? I believe that’s a stretch. One persons opinion.

  • Jack Derwent

    It’d be nice if he appeared like this without the cgi augmentations.

  • Hipster Doofus

    If only Pennywise were this terrifying looking in the final film. The simplicity of the lighting, eye contacts, the mouth piece for the fangs. It’s almost like a completely different character in some shots. I can’t help think what could have been had they simply cut back on the overused, low rent CGI effects.

    I know this is pretty standard gripe now, but damn…what could have been.

    • 007odc .

      I was literally just looking at the pics aswell yes if only the cgi got held back the practical typical effects look so much more creepier than the final film

  • Sondre Strøm Linde

    Oh my god can people shut the hell up about the CGI? Jesus Christ on a cracker. The CGI in the movie was fantastic. Best mix of CGI, make-up and acting I’ve ever seen.
    Also CGI is still made by people, same as every other effect, it’s not a magical button.

    • Papa_spoosh

      I don’t like seeing unnecessary hate that this movie gets just for being “too popular” or “mainstream” but the cgi was very bad. The flute woman looked ridiculous and the teeth were horrible. And practical effects are an amazing horror staple that will always look better than CGI.

      • nicholasmwalker

        i have to agree that the CGI was not great but i still loved the movie. i wish they had a slightly bigger budget to do some more practical fx

        • Papa_spoosh

          I loved it too. That and the shape of water are the two favorites I was able to see this year… For VERY different reasons lol, but it was really fun and it’s just getting this hate due to how hyped it got. Some Horror fans will spend every day trying to convince people of why they love watching horror movies and once one is a big hit it’s like their identity was stolen or something.

  • MaryMaria

    Damn, that fridge shot is great! I definitely need to watch this again. And I love the stills where he’s holding that arm. I loved it when he waved it to the kids, just such black humour. Had such a fun time at this movie!

    • Carly_Ranae

      So true! I had to watch this twice in theaters…

  • dukeblues

    The movie sucked

    • abyx34

      it truly did, big time! 5 out of 10 stars.

  • The Night King

    The unfortunate thing about IT is that there are tons of people who will believe that this film is the story of IT all because they never read. Enjoy the film for what it is, but the real magic of this story is in the written pages of the novel. That book will pull you in deeper into that world than any film adaption ever could.

    • Azwethinkweiz

      I agree. I think the movie hit a lot of points that the book did better then the TV adaptation in the child narrative but it still doesn’t even come close to scratching the surface of what is in the book. People are really doing themselves a disservice by passing up on the book. It’s very, very good.

      • Necro

        Yep Yep!

    • Necro

      Yep I agree! In my small town I’m known as The Horror Guy, it’s a nickname I never asked for believe me, I don’t parade around pretending to know everything or shit like that, I’m just a hardcore enthusiast who loves the genre. Anyway sorry about all the preamble, but I told all of the casual fans who liked the film and whatnot, if you truly want to experience ‘IT’ go read the novel!

  • diapers

    The last shot of Pennywise with the arm… are those plucked eyeballs I see on his sleeve, connected by a bloody optic nerve??

    • Mr. Red Right Hand

      we can only hope so

    • Arron Umberger

      Unfortunately, no. Look 5 images above (the pic where he is standing face-to-face with the director) and you’ll see that it is the fringed piping and bangles on the cuff of his sleeve.

      • diapers

        Ahhh, I see that now. Damn. Meanwhile, I’m probably NOT going to tell my therapist of my personal disappointment that the tassels are not plucked eyeballs. 🙂

        • James Allard

          I don’t tell the therapist anything. What? It’s court appointed…

    • BrokenPhono

      Hi, diapers

      I am replying to you, because about a year and a couple of months ago, you were one of the few kind people to encourage me to keep going with my movie. Said movie being “Nosferatu Re-Animated”.
      I am happy to announce that I kept with it, and have finished all of the animation. In the coming months, I will be finishing the music, and I plan on a release date sometime this summer (working currently on screen dates in Michigan and Bluray release). We now have an HD teaser trailer on youtube, a page on Facebook, and an account on twitter.
      If you are interested, search: Nosferatu Re-Animated in any of the afore-mentioned websites.
      Again, thank you for your encouragement, it meant a lot to me. You are truly a kind person.

      Cheers

      • xcalibrate ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

        Congratulations. Looks interesting, animation wise. Good, atmospheric look to it.

      • diapers

        Looking great!

      • James Allard

        Fran,
        Best of luck, and announce when it is out. I will want to see it. Hopefully, it will be in theaters? Maybe?
        Frankly, this is exactly my cup o T.

        And no, I do not know this person, this is the first I’ve heard of it, I don’t get anything for posting it. Well, satisfaction.

  • That bit with the arm is still the creepiest part of the whole movie for me.

    • Azwethinkweiz

      I thought it was funny. Haha.

      • It was, that’s what made it so creepy! The fact he looks so silly waving a little kid’s dismembered arm that he’s halfway through eating, haha, it’s a really good scene.

  • Went to preorder and the website said it’s sold out already, I’m hoping to grab one in store when it’s released next Monday (HMV in the UK)

    • Silhouetters

      Props to you for supporting HMV Kirkio, they deserve all the help they get <3

      • Ours almost closed twice, without it we’d have nothing like it here, so I try to use it as much as I can. The vinyl resurge helps too! Love the Noodle avatar by the way.

        • Silhouetters

          Aw cheers man! And yeah over here in Gloucester it almost closed, wayyy back in 2011 and man it would have fucking sucked if that had happened.
          Just been to Fopp in Bristol (owned by HMV) and would love it if we had one too, but our city’s too small for it unfortunately :/

          • No worries, just went to see them live recently, always loved them! It’s terrible isn’t it, HMV is the last real high street media retailer we have in Grimsby after losing Virgin/Zavvi, and most other places are going, so if HMV goes that’s it really. I’ve never been to Fopp, what’s it like?

  • abyx34

    People hyped and hyped it, but then, when I finally saw it… I thought what a mess. Although there is no denying that it’s PR campaign did a good job in promoting the film.

    • Bla Blah

      I don’t think it’s that.
      From what I’m hearing, the theatrical version of the film is one thing but the one that people saw in the test screenings was the probably the greatest horror film ever made. I think the people, Stephen King included, who saw the extended version with all the filmed scenes intact saw a really great and scary film that had way more gore as clown horror than the final product.
      It was rightfully hyped but the theatrical version just doesn’t live up to it, whereas the actual full cut of the film does. I’ve read both scripts for the 2014 and 2015 versions and I can say both were very, very good

    • PorterJustPorter

      Yeah, it was a huge disappointment. As bad as the “spider” climax was in the T.V. miniseries, the final sequence in this film where the Losers Club get in a fistfight with Pennywise was as equally silly.

  • Bruce Wayne

    Man, why does he look so creepy on behind the scenes-material, but in the final movie he’s just goofy. Such a waste of potencial…

  • James Allard

    Will this the be whispered “Director’s Cut?”

        4. got shit to do with IT other than rodan being in the book

  • DeathApeDisco

    Loved the film, having read the book (which really is something incredible). I hope the director’s cut arrives and is both longer and more brutal, I don’t always think brutal is needed but here, in a wonderful piece of world-building (a really fantastic accomplishment) I think they shaved off just a few too many edges.

  • DJ sTikInsEkT

    it was shite why are people still goin on about it. i saw it once and it erased from my memory. and dont tell me i am 1990 purist. i barely liked that one too.

  • NOCC Monkey

    Loved it! Can’t wait for the director’s cut!
