'IT' Trailer: Pennywise Floats Up From the Sewers! - Bloody Disgusting!

‘IT’ Trailer: Pennywise Floats Up From the Sewers!

If you come with me, you’ll float too…

I think there are times we’re a bit too reactionary; a lot of us thought adapting Stephen King’s It was a bad idea. The first image of Pennywise, played by Bill Skarsgard, didn’t help restore our faith in what Andy Muschietti was directing. If the trailer is any indication, clowns are scary again, thanks to Warner Bros. and New Line’s IT, in theaters September 8, 2017.

The trailer takes us to a small town in Maine, where seven children known as The Losers’ Club come face to face with life problems, bullies, and a monster that takes the shape of a clown called Pennywise. The clown is quite literally the boogeyman, taunting and tormenting these children as he snakes his way through the sewers. When Pennywise rises out of the water, it’s absolutely mortifying.

[Related] Here’s the Terrifying ‘IT’ Trailer in 50 Hi-Res Images!

The kids in peril, the Losers’ Club, include Jaeden Lieberher, Finn Wolfhard, Jack Dylan Grazer, Wyatt Oleff, Chosen Jacobs and Jeremy Ray Taylor. There’s a bit of A Nightmare in Elm Street in the fact that they’re all sharing the same experiences and believe each other when they say that Pennywise is real. What’s super scary is the fact that there doesn’t appear to be anywhere to hide from Pennywise; he’s everywhere, and isn’t shy about teasing the children, even in public!

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.

Creature performer Javier Botet will play The Leper, and Nicholas Hamilton plays Henry Bowers. The cast also includes Owen Teague who plays Patrick Hocksetter, a bully who torment the Losers’ Club. Dan Lin, Roy Lee, Seth Grahame-Smith, David Katzenberg, and Barbara Muschietti produce.

Check out the first ever images here.

What do you guys think of the trailer?!

  • WoodsboroKiller

    that last scene in the basement legitimately freaked me the fuck out. this. looks. AMAZING!

  • Mark Lepine

    Trailer looks really, really good.

  • Richard

    They blocked the video? Bummer

    • WoodsboroKiller

    • Jerry Medina

      • Richard

        Thanks!

  • ScriptGiverrrr

    Fuck. That looks good.

  • Synisterintent

    Oh hey we are releasing a trailer, but will Copyright claim so you cant see it…. WTAF? And in like 3 seconds from the looks of it

  • Ryan

    Pennywise slithering through the water was pure nightmare fuel.

    • Sky Commander

      Oh yeah that was shit your pants terrifying

  • Overton Green

    Looks good

  • CityLims

    Im scared

  • the usual suspect

    I am impressed.. looks decent

  • joe31183

    So is this based on the book or the TV movie from the 90s? It’s hard to tell…

    • Chip

      I don’t see a single scene here that mirrors the 90s mini series. This does however, have interestingly exact notes from the book, and a few scenes that I haven’t read in it yet. Mind you I’m only 1/4th through the book right now, but it seems like this film isn’t afraid to be an adaptation, and run with some concepts.

      • Q.

        It looks like (aside from it taking place in the ’80s) a direct adaptation of the novel.

    • The Drucifer

      Both. Neither.

    • Soren Miltich

      Trailer says: From Stephen King’s terrifying novel….so think they told you.

      • Chip

        It’s a fair question to ask, given how much the Carrie remake boasted it was based more on the book, but ended up taking a lot of things directly from Depalma’s version. Studio meddling can always undercut the intentions of an adaptation.

        • Georgie’s Arm

          Carrie credited the original adaptation’s screenwriter. This one does not. Word is the studio is actually pretty stoked with this film, especially after positive reaction from test audiences.

    • Harvey Leacock

      It’s a total adaption of the book. Nothing whatsoever to do with the TV movie.

  • Justin Chamberlain

    Wtf? Warner bros blocked the teaser? What kind of crap is this?

  • The Drucifer

    Yup.

  • fR@πk LL0yD jR.

    The part with Pennywise running through the water at the end reminded me of Jim Carrey for some reason.

  • Chip

    I’m loving the camera work here. It has a fairy tale quality to it that’s hard to describe, but really, really works for this movie. I’m a little curious why Bill doesn’t stutter.

  • Hoping it will avoid cliched jump-cut jump-scares; visually nice, though

  • Holy shit this looks good! Can’t wait! Just from the teaser is kills the TV series already

  • DEIMOS

    OMFG! This trailer is really dark and it scared! I can’t wait!!!!!

  • Biscoito18

    Whoa, I love it!! This kids are so natural, great casting. That burned hands trying to open the door was amazing. And the final scene really scared me. :3
    I’m sold!

  • billbixby219

    cant.f******.wait

    i loved IT as a child, this looks like a vast improvement. i dont want the summer to fly by, but i want the summer to fly by.

  • anika

    Nice!! Excited to see if it’s the update the original needs:p One complaint is that pennywise’s weird jumpscare run at the camera thing was a little corny but we’ll seeee

    • Alanmac

      I thought that was one of the best parts of the trailer.

      • zob rombie

        I almost wish they didn’t show it in the trailer.

    • Chip

      I’d call it less corny and more “WHAT THE FUCK!?” which was an element to Pennywise that was always interesting. He’s scary because he’s not all together predictable.

    • Khy

      I loved it. It was chaotic and unnerving.

  • Chip

    Just a teeny tiny nitpick, for the lulz, but the Xerox machine wasn’t on the market till 1959, a full two years before the book started. Just a funny note.

    • The kids movie takes place in the 80s. The adults are in present day. They updated the time periods.

      • Chip

        Aaaaaaah. Stranger Things really did have an impact. That’ll change the tone of a few things. Thanks for clearing that up for me.

        • Khy

          This was planned to be set in the 80s before Stranger Things blew up last year.

          • lostboy408

            Sure it was

          • Khy

            Sarcasm? Look it up. The 80s setting had been confirmed ever since WB first announced the film back in 2008. That remained true when Cary Fukunaga came on board in 2013 and was carried over to Andy Muschetti’s version by 2015.

            This all predates Stranger Things. Stranger Things was a huge hit NO ONE saw coming and IT began filming so quickly after- there would be no room to turn around and try to “copy” something that blew up in a matter of days.

          • Chip

            It seems a little convenient that one of the cast is the lead in Stranger Things. Lucky break for that kid I guess.

          • Khy

            He was already cast in IT before Stranger Things premiered.

          • Georgie’s Arm

            Khy is correct, the only reason Finn Wolfhard could star in Stranger Things is because filming on It got delayed by a year. It was actually in the midst of filming when Stranger Things premiered.

  • Jayson Tomas

    Why didn’t they let Pennywise talk in the video. Bcuz he looks way too creepy for kids to even think about talking to all . We needed to hear if he nailed the disarming voice.

    • Steven Miranda Miranda

      Exactly what I want to know, his voice and delivery was huge elementa of Tim Curry

  • Steven Miranda Miranda

    Trailer was awesome but I was anticipating to hear Pennywises voice, I wanted to know if it his voice can make my heart sink to my stomach the same way Tim Curry did as Pennywise

    • THGrimm

      I was hoping to hear his voice too! I really thought we’d get a peep out of him talking to Georgie.

      • Steven Miranda Miranda

        Yeah right when he pops up in the gutter and just says “hiya Georgie!” or something close!

    • Chip

      I’m wondering if the childish “We all float down here” is one of Pennywise’s several voices in the book. That’d be royally messed up if they can pull that off.

      • Steven Miranda Miranda

        Thats such a classic line i hope Skarsgard can make it his own yet just as terrifying

        • Chip

          I really think he might. His version of Pennywise has this puckish look that reminds me of the Goodguy Dolls from Childsplay 1, and recaptured in Curse of Chucky. The apple cheeks, and the buck teeth give him a sinister childish look. I could very easily imagine a child’s voice coming out of there.

  • Sky Commander

    Upvote if you suddenly remembered why you’re afraid of clowns.

  • 1naturalace

    I’m so excited…Just curious if the sewer love scene is gonna make the cut lol

    • Chip

      I rather doubt it.

  • Lindsay-Ann Morrison

    Well. I’m sufficiently nauseated. I’m not going to make it through this movie with my nerves intact.

  • Necro

    So with the obvious 2nd part that’s going to follow. Anyone have any clue as to some of the actors playing the adults in the ‘Losers Club’?

    • Chip

      I don’t think they’re even going to consider casting till they know what kind of a budget they have to work with. How this film does will dictate the kind of star power they can command for part two.

      • Troy Heesch

        They have a budget already in place for both movies. Both movies combined is 35 mil.

        • Chip

          Given how slick this looks, that’s really impressive.

  • Khy

    I’M FUCKING SHAKING. That trailer knocked the living shit out of me

  • Alanmac

    Holy FUCK this looks good!!!

  • Khy

    This trailer alone wins 2017

  • CHUD541

    Absolutely amazing i am beyond excited for this movie. I watched the trailer about ten times already trying to get every detail i can find. Just from this trailer alone this looks genuinely scary. I hope though they dont treat it like a typical horror movie. I would love for this movie to be about 3 hours long with the second part being about the same length. I want this to be epic and blow all these shit horror movies that have com
    e out over the years out of the water. I know i have extremely high standards when it comes to horror but that because i hate what hollywood has done to horror movies since the mid 90s and thats cheap jump scares with little plot development and i hope this movie can breathe life into horror films again.

  • Finally. This looks amazing. Now they just need to do this w Salem’s Lot and give us a proper treatment to that and I’ll be happy.

  • Carl Griffiths

    WOW! Looks genuinely terrifying. I cannot wait for this.
    I’m going to re-read the book now to keep me going until September.

  • BossWalrus

    I’m sold! I’ve been optimistic for most of this development (I was very upset when Cary Fukunaga stepped down) but this looks absolutely incredible. The cinematography looks gorgeous, the atmosphere looks tense. I’ve read the book multiple time, and you can tell that they care for the source material. Summer can be over, lets just skip to September.

  • Brad Tyler

    HOLY CRAP! This did NOT disappoint! Looks friggin’ AWESOME! Pennywise looked scary as hell. I CANNOT WAIT!

  • Nikki Rocks

    Trailer is sick, for those having issues it works but I had to view if from a computer it doesn’t seem to work from my iPhone!

  • Munchie

    Well, they made a scary trailer with scary edits and scary music, that’s for sure.

  • al343806

    So we’re officially confirming that the childhood portion of IT definitely takes place in the 1980’s instead of the 1950’s, which means the adult portion will take place in the present day. I personally have a slight problem with this just because certain plot points really worked because of where this country was in the 1950’s/1980’s.

    Right off the top of my head, the blatant and obvious racism that Mike faced as a child. While it’s most definitely not the case that racism was gone in the 1980’s, there was sort of a uniqueness of 1950’s racism that’s discussed in the books. Plus, correct me if I’m wrong, but I believe Mike’s grandmother talked about slavery in the book and issues that his grandfather faced (I could be mixing up Stephen King books though).

    Additionally, the adulthood portion of the book starts with the murder of one person in a gay couple and involves a lot of homophobia that was, again, unique to the 1980’s with the AIDS epidemic.

    I’m sure it’ll still be amazing, don’t get me wrong. I just find it interesting that they decided to go this route.

    • Chip

      Change the homosexual to a transexual, and it’s still relevant. There’s tons of transexual abuse, and plenty of homophobia to go around in small-town U.S. That’s something to remember. A lot of the mid-west still has major problems.

      That aside, a lot of that stuff is good in a novel, but that can be cumbersome in a movie. The real point is that IT returned, and displayed the same disturbing killing spree, prompting Mike to make the call.

    • Q.

      Racism and Homophobia are as present today as it was then… it’s just acknowledged now and more overt. It’s a perfect time to continue to face these issues.

      • al343806

        I tried to touch on that a little in my posting but perhaps I wasn’t clear enough. Of course racism and homophobia are still present and noticeable today as well as in the 1980’s, my point was the character of the country and how it framed racism in the 1950’s was significantly different. Remember, the Civil Rights Act hadn’t even been passed and wouldn’t be passed for another decade.

    • Vesuvian Villain

      What’s also interesting about changing the time frame is that they have to update what scares the kids most. The book had classic movie monsters 50’s/60’s kids would be afraid of like werewolves, vampires, frankenstein, mummy, etc. To keep that believable for 80’s kids they’d have to throw in things like Freddy, Jason, Michael Myers, etc but obviously that couldn’t happen because of licensing and also would steal the show from Pennywise. But they could be generic about it, like Romero style zombies, or Lost Boys style vampires, etc. Or maybe they just scrap the whole thing and give them new things to be afraid of..

      • Chip

        Eh, those classic characters still held a lot of sway over the kids of the 80s. Remember Monster Squad?

      • Jonathan Larsson

        I think it depends on what copyrights they have. It’s made by New Line Cinema, so Leatherface, Freddy Krueger and Jason Voorhees should be allowed, plus, Night of the Living dead is in public domain so that’s pretty much free. However, I don’t think they’re gonna use them a lot. I mean they’re horror films icons; having them in there might be distracting.

        • Chip

          New Line is distributing it, yes, but that’s a far cry from production.

        • Vesuvian Villain

          Exactly, it would be cool but it could never happen. I remember when I was a kid I saw Critters 2, and there was a scene where the alien bounty hunter, who could shape shift, saw this cardboard cutout of Freddy, and it starts turning into him, and the other guy stops him because he wants her to stay the Playboy model he turned her into. I was so excited at the idea of him turning into Freddy that it crushed me when it didn’t happen. Didn’t even care about the Playboy model haha.

          • Jonathan Larsson

            I have a similar feeling when I watch The Last Action Hero. It would’ve been so cool if the villain had been given the chance to go and collect other movie-villains and turn it into a monster squad-like scenario.

  • James Kozeluh

    There’s no casting for their older counterparts so I’m just curious as to what they’re doing? Is it half of the plot or something? Looks like all the focus is on the child half of the story.

    • I think there will be 2 parts! The 1st part is about the childhood of the protagonists, the 2nd is when they grow up.

      • JeffCStevenson

        Only if Part 1 is a success will there be a Part 2 with the adults.

        • Yeah, it’s kinda sad but unfortunately is how Hollywood works.

        • al343806

          Rumor has it that they’re actually gearing up for a summer shoot, so we may get part two regardless.

        • CHUD541

          They are actually going to be filming the second part this year if im not mistaken before the release of the first part.

    • Dr. Acula

      $equel

  • Pretty much the unscariest thing I’ve seen in ages.

    • Fourth Eye

      Surely, you look in a mirror at least once a day? I can see how that would desensitize you.

      • I saw your mom yesterday. Now that was scary!

        • BloodyDisgusted

          Sweet elementary school comeback, Maynard. Keep up the good work.

        • Fourth Eye

          I can imagine that would be terrifying, as she’s been dead for eight years now.

    • JeffCStevenson

      I know. I kept waiting for…something. I’m surprised they just set up the premise for the story, which the audience already knows. Very low-key.

      • Chip

        Uh, there’s whole generations that might know Pennywise as a meme, but not the actual story involved.

    • Grimphantom

      Yes it was when it’s just a trailer……………be horrified by it!!!!

    • Dr. Acula

      ive watched the trailer like 5 times i can’t see the fear people are seeing? i just see the mini series with a olive filter over the top with new age horror music put in

  • The Fucked Up

    The hype train leaves now! All aboard! Choo fuckin choo

  • Khy

    Ok…I think I’m finished crying. Trailer sucked so much out of me. My mind cannot compute the level of horror I experienced

    • JeffCStevenson

      LOL!

    • Grimphantom

      It’s that a good thing or a bad thing? XD

      • Khy

        My sticky keyboard says its good.

    • Lol

      Mr. D? Is that you?

      • Khy

        As Mr.D would say “THIS FILM WILL HURT PEOPLE!”

  • Woow, amazing teaser, I’ll watch the original film this weekend.
    Maybe I’m wrong but I can see It being a great box office success.

    • Scott Baiowulfgang Amadeus

      I sure hope so or we won’t get the second part with the adults!

      • That teaser knows well how to sell a lot of tickets.
        I’m watching it haha

    • Dr. Acula

      it will. everyone knows that clown even if they didnt read/watch the previous stuff

  • Bluegrasslass

    Looks really creepy. I was so disappointed the leper was not in the 1990s version.

    • Scott Baiowulfgang Amadeus

      Definitely in this and played by Javier Botet, the go to guy for creepy characters these days,

      • Georgie’s Arm

        There’s a shot of Eddie being chased by the leper at 1:52 😉

  • THGrimm

    I’m very happy with what I saw here. I love the shot of Pennywise nose deep in the water, soaking wet, and peering out like a gator ready to strike.

  • Wil McMullen

    The trailer was definitely creepy! I’m finally excited to see this.

  • al343806

    I legitimately busted out laughing. Kind of felt bad, but then remembered he wouldn’t have to worry about a bump on his head or a bruised ego for very much longer…

  • Daniel Anderson

    Pleasant viewing.

  • js4strings

    Awesome, can’t wait!!!

  • I usually don’t find clowns scary but holy fuck that film feel scene was creepy as shit

  • Andrew

    I’m pleasantly surprised. This looks fantastic

  • Scrimm

    NO

    • Sky Commander

      YES

    • Saturn

      I think you meant to say……

      BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOY!!!

      Ahem.

  • Travis

    This looks absolutely amazing! Creepy and scary! That’s last scene with Pennywise running through the water is the stuff of nightmares. Also love how they blew up the Beverly and the sink scene to a whole new gory level! Can’t wait for this! Also love how he didn’t speak! They are saving that for the release i bet!

  • Khy

    Pennywise voice I’M sure will be very child-like. It’ll be the opposite of Tim’s. I’m thinking high pitched. Feminine even.

  • Joshua Wiles

    Very impressed by the trailer. Definitely counting the days until this comes out.

  • Khy

    “Ew the guy who did mama is going to ruin this!” “Why did they cast a pretty boy as Pennywise? This will suck”.

    You bitches were saying? *sips tea*

    • Michael Josef Kappel

      Uhhh it didn’t look that great still lol

    • Munchie

      Mama sucked. It was terribly directed. You can’t tell shit from a trailer, and your tea is weak.

      • Saturn

        Gotta admit that I enjoyed Mama, especially the “not quite as happy ending” that we were all expecting. Yes, it was a little generic at times, but what it did it did well enough, better than a lot of other movies of it’s ilk.

    • Blood Boil

      And I will keep “saying”…trailers these days end up being better than the actual film; I am done psyching myself up to be brutally disappointed. The hype around Hollywood horror films has become Pavlovian, except there is no treat at the end, just yawn inducing and sadistic mediocrity. If Hollywood has a hand in it, be prepared for a checklist of tropes, used and abused plot devices and paper thin character development.

      I am looking to films like The Void and It Comes At Night for something new and exciting. I hope that IT ends up being a good movie, but the odds are working against it, especially after what happened with Cary Fukunaga and how the producers totally obliterated their script because it was too “weird” aka, “fuck the content and quality…how profitable can we make this movie?”

      • zombie84_41

        Thats honestly true, they either ruin the whole movie, or the movie winds up sucking. This has happen to me so many times, not just with horror, but comedy, action, sci-fi. Most recently with THE WITCH, DON’T BREATHE the trailers made the films look amazing and scary and tense, only to be huge let downs. So here’s hoping to god this movie owns. because when I saw pics of pennywise at first I thought it was shit, pure shit. But IDK now seeing him in action he feels more scary. But I know the movie will be a let down. I just know it. So maybe if I think the movie will suck and go in knowing it sucks and come out being pleased.

        • Khy

          Or maybe you guys can stop thinking so hard and just go in and be entertained.
          It’s a movie, not your first born child. relax.

          • Blood Boil

            Or maybe we don’t feel like constantly settling for over-hyped, milquetoast horror (remakes especially) and expect/hope for more out of the genre. I am done with being “entertained”, that essentially means something kept your interest but draws little to no emotion out of you…I want a horror movie to scare the shit out of me and make me uncomfortable.

            Speaking of relaxing, you’ve commented about 20 times on this thread, it’s not your first born child.

          • Khy

            Then keep your money and stop supporting them. Go put your energy into things you actually like instead of bitching about shitty movies your dumb ass keep paying to see

          • Blood Boil

            When did I say I pay for these movies? I stopped paying money for this shit a long time ago.

            Little hostile on a message board aren’t we buddy? Thanks for being a bodyguard for shitty Hollywood cash grabs and the stagnant toilet that is mainstream horror.

          • Khy

            So youre scum that illegally steals movies. Gotcha

          • Blood Boil

            And by the way, “things you actually like”, I am currently in the process of filming a full length horror movie that me and some friend’s wrote and casting wraps up in a week, so instead of giving money to Hollywood hack jobs, I am going out and making the change I want to see.

          • Khy

            Beautiful! Bye bitch.

          • zombie84_41

            or be hugely let down .

        • chrishaagan

          The Witch was a great film.

          • zombie84_41

            I’m sorry Chris, movie didn’t do much for me. Nice setting but it was all very dull.

  • Hmmm… still not sure. Maybe a full trailer will be better.

    • Grimphantom
      • No, just a few minutes, but with a bit more going on. I think you’ll find that’s why it’s called a “teaser trailer”, but I can see how one who uses childish gifs to make a point would be so easily confused.

        • Grimphantom

          When someone complains about the gifs, it shows how much you got burned from it or else you wouldn’t say anything about something SO pointless about a dumb trailer….

          • Yes, I’m just cut up about it.

    • zombie84_41

      LOL it doesn’t get more full then this, any fuller then you already saw the whole movie. At least this didn’t ruin much of the movie at all and honestly I hope thats the only trailer we ever get. Till it actually comes out.

      • What an idiotic thing to say. It could have been a much more expansive trailer…

        • zombie84_41

          Why thank you! I tried to be as idiotic as possible. Hopefully I nailed it.

  • Michael Josef Kappel

    Doesn’t look horrible but besides the look of the filming it still looks kinda cheesy at times

  • art123guy

    Georgie smacking his head was just bad.

    • Grimphantom

      I felt bad for the kid on that scene lol

    • zombie84_41

      LOL i laughed so hard.

  • Loved the original and I’ll say the trailer looks solid enough. I’m going to go see it. I hope the second half gets made.

    • Saturn

      IIRC they have just started (or about to) filming the 2nd movie,.

  • Brian Carroll

    Yeah, the opening boat folding scene gives me nostalgia chills. I’m in.

  • Grimphantom

    The trailer was good, nice atmosphere and you do see stuff that we haven’t seen from the TV version which shows that they will follow more on the book. I do however wanted to hear a good soundtrack for it, i felt at the beginning was too generic and the rest not bad but it’s something you’ll forget, they do need to realize that making a good horror movie also comes with a cool and memorable soundtrack.

    • Khy

      I want a new score BUT…kinda would like a reworked version of the Derry theme from the miniseries to show up briefly. I loved that theme.

      • Grimphantom

        I hear ya, kinda like Samurai Jack did with Ennio Morricone’s The Ecstasy of Gold.

    • zombie84_41

      Thats with any movie I feel if you got a good soundtrack even if the movie sucks it makes it more amazing. For me for a great movie isn’t really about acting, that helps. But The soundtrack and ending is what works for me the most.

      • Grimphantom

        Agreed, one of the reasons why i enjoyed 80’s movies mostly of John Carpenter is how he adds good background music that’s just very memorable that it stays in your head and just by hearing just the music you know which movie you’re watching.

        That’s my only gripe i have with modern horror movies, they don’t as memorable when they have a generic soundtrack that you heard before. One of the reasons why i appreciate cartoons like Gravity Falls, Star Vs. and the recent/final season of Samurai Jack is that they have great soundtracks.

        • zombie84_41

          Nice. I gotta check all those cartoons out. I did like Samurai Jack. The Ghost in the shell movie was really awesome plus it had a kick ass soundtrack. Clint Mansell did it, so you know it’s going to be gold. Movies i’ve seen off the top of my head with great soundtracks in know order are. Donkey Punch (this is where I fell in love with M83. ) intersellar, stranger things, scott pilgrim, and a few others I can’t think of right now.

          • Grimphantom

            Oh if you did enjoyed the first 4 seasons, the 5th and final season you will totally enjoy, especially when you couldn’t see stuff on Jack because it was a kids show the new season changing all that.

            Nice picks there. I also like movies It Follows, Fright Night, The Howling, The Hitcher and The Barn had good soundtrack music. Also cool that you are fan Scott Pilgrim and Stranger Things, not familiar with Intersellar so i will keep an eye on later.

          • zombie84_41

            Ya I love Scott Pilgrim alot. I’ll check out the 5th and final season of Jack also. I have to agree with you on It Follows that movie had a great soundtrack too it was moody and really fit it. Mostly any movie that uses M83 is amazing too, even if the movie winds up sucking just the use of M83 makes it a tad better. Sadly the only movie this doesn’t work with is that shitty Red Riding Hood movie they did with Amanda Seyfeild that movie was garbage nothing could of saved that movie.

  • blacklodgefamilytree

    yall do way too much bitching. one things for sure it will be better than the damn over rated over hyped tv movie atleast!

    • chrishaagan

      You’ve got to give Tommy Lee Wallace credit. He had a micro budget, TV movie actors and the struggle of fitting as much of IT into four hours as he could. Plus he gave us Curry as Pennywise. It wasn’t great, but it wasn’t bad either.

  • Maxime C

    So…That looks good!!

    He starts off half laughing, half crying, then gets enraged- fucking awesome little actor! And Penny just chillin’ in the dirty basement water.

  • zombie84_41

    Ok I take back all I said this shit is scary. And they actually did a fantastic job with pennywise’s make up. Now lets hope the actual movie is scary. And not some stupid trailer like most trailers that get you mad pumped and then BAM fail’s.

  • CB Punk

    I don’t know so the entire movie is them as kids. The Losers as adults getting the phone calls from Mike and triggering their memories is a pretty important part of the story. I mean the trailer looks awesome although it’s kinda hard to pinpoint what year it’s set in my guess is 1990. Since in the book it’s 27 years from the time they first defeated IT.

    • Golic

      The adult section of the book will be part 2.

    • Jada Maes

      I feel this one will end with Stanley Uris taking a bath.

    • Khy

      1989.
      I think it’s a great idea for the kids to have their ENTIRE movie to themselves and for the adults to have theirs as well. Going back and forth really only worked for me in the novel when you had the time to really do it and flesh both sides out equally. Miniseries felt constrained trying to do it. This being a MOVIE would limit it even more.

  • gabriel

    I would like to see him cast Jessica Chastain for part II. She would play an excellent Beverly, and since he already cast her in Mama, they should already have a good relationship

    • CB Punk

      I could get down with that.

  • Travis_Bickle

    Tim Curry would applaud this…oh….to soon?

    • gabriel

      I wonder what Rob Zombie thinks of this trailer. He could probably bring a pretty sinister take on the whole damned thing

        Fuck Robert Zombie.

        Naw, He would cast his wife as studdering bill and pennywise. All other characters would be played by racially insensitive midgets.

  • Prince Of Darkness

    Not really understanding the verbal jerking off in the comments. How many awful movies had trailers that made the movie look descent? So far, it doesn’t look too different from the 80’s tv version, just a little slicker. It “could” be enjoyable, but no filmed version will ever match the depth of the book. The book took you back to your childhood and made you remember things you had forgotten, it took you back to a time when the country was a much better place and not the sickening freakshow it is now. I don’t know, I’ve never really understood how people could be even remotely scared of the 80’s version either.

    • Khy

      Thank you for those unheard of powerful words of knowledge. I was just getting ready to toss out my copy of the novel but these beautiful words made me realize what was truly important.
      Thank you Prince Of Dorkness.

      • Prince Of Darkness

        Gee Khy, you really molested me with that retort . Really tore me a new one that will leave me emotionally scarred for life. I just hope that what you did to me does not lead to the urge of doing that to another.

        • Grimphantom
        • Khy

          And in what way was 1950s Derry a “perfect place”?

          Beverly was abused and touched (you probably found this giggly) by her father all the time.Bill was ignored by his grieving parents and treated as if he never existed.Ben was bullied for being over weight and being poor.Mike was one of the few black kids in town in small town 1950s America- nuff said. Eddie was small, scrawny and the son of an overbearing obessive mother that fucked him up mentally. Stan was bullied for being a jew and Richie was a big mouth with glasses that got beat up. All of these kids tormented by a sadistic pack of older boys led by Henry Bowers AND that’s not even to mention an extraterrestrial being masquerading as a clown terrorizing them and slaughtering their peers by the dozens without adults truly being aware of the horror.

          Eddie Corcoran and his brother were brutally abused by their stepfather and that ended up with Dorsey being killed by him(the stepdad) and that is before IT comes along and kills Eddie. Nothing in the book glorifies the 1950s picturesque ideallyic cliche people push- if anything it destroys it. Same horrors are happening in the 2010s.

          • Prince Of Darkness

            The novel hinted that much of what happened in Derry was in fact a result of IT’s presence. That IT seemed to infect the town with IT’s darkness and make it ripe for bad things happening. IT had the power to make adults ignore much of what was happening, had them think that all the kids being murdered was not as out of the ordinary as it really was. When Henry attacked Bev, the adults went inside their homes and ignored her cries for help. Life is not easy for anyone no matter what era you live in. I’m talking about the country as a whole being a much better place.

          • Khy

            The novel didn’t hint at that being the reason why- it WAS because of IT. That doesn’t change the fact that was a metaphor about the atrocities that go on in our own towns, lives, and even families that we ignore or refuse to see or fail to acknowledge.

            That aspect is timeless which is why I’m saying the 1950s as far as the CHILDREN go and what they were going through in the novel with their home lives and school lives was just as horrible then as it is now. There’s nothing simple and nostalgic about being bullied, touched, teased, persecuted, or terrorized.

            On the contrary, there are kids today that are living in perfect little bubbles as kids did 50 years ago and their are kids going through the same atrocities that Bev, Eddie C and his little brother Dorsey went through. You’re going to have that with EVERY generation.

            My point was that King was intending to make the ’50s seem like a great place or a great time. That’s quite obvious.

          • DS Ullery

            I think both of you are correct to a degree. There’s no mistaking the nostalgia King feels for that era. It’s there throughout the novel.
            However, I think Khy nailed it. That was the point: Derry is a seriously fucked up town. Those innocent nay magical attributes of Americana carry a dark edge in Derry …It’s the traditional American dream corrupted by absolute evil. It’s no coincidence IT preys on children in the guise of a clown or that Pennywise enlists a bully to help do his dirty work. There is a definite allegory for the dark secrets people were concealing beneath the glow of Mom, baseball and apple pie going on there, as well as a legitimate affection for the innocent incarnation of those ideals.

          • Prince Of Darkness

            My belief is that life in 1950’s America was far from perfect, but it
            was a much simpler and innocent time for the country as a whole than it
            is today. That is, unless you have an evil force living under your city
            that exudes it’s dark influence onto everyday life. IT didn’t cause abuse, bullying, and parental neglect, but it fed off of it, used it, and amplified it to IT’s advantage.

        • J Jett

          Princess, you’re really obsessed with child abuse and being molested. go get some professional help.

          • Prince Of Darkness

            Could be worse, I could be a perpetual man child who hides from the world because I never psychologically evolved into an adult.

    • MysteriousOne

      Wrong, their never was a ‘simpler’ and ‘better’ time in America. The era the book takes place in features racial segregation, rampant sexism, and so forth, and all the freak show stuff that goes on today, still happened then, just more behind closed doors, it was still there, the evils that humans are capable of. Now, maybe being a kid then seemed more innocent and ‘simpler’, but I think kids always feel that way in any era. But the real world is a terrifying place. It’s good to have some nostalgia though, to not become so cynical. But, don’t kid yourself on how ‘perfect’ the world was ‘back then’.

      • Khy

        Exactly

      • Prince Of Darkness

        Nobody ever said the world was a perfect place. But in the 50’s we didn’t have people being kidnapped and forced into sex trafficking. We didn’t have terrorism. We didn’t have entire cities like Baltimore, Detroit, Indianapolis, St. Louis, and many more cities turned into war zones of poverty, lawlessness, and failure. Casual sex wasn’t the equivalent of playing Russian Roulette with your gentiles. People didn’t need credit cards or monthly health care payments. We grew our own food, built our own cars, and made our own steel all made by American workers. In short, America is now great if you wish to live in a third world dump – which many do. It was far from perfect, but it was a better time for the majority of people.

        • Khy

          And even still- the novel wasn’t ABOUT any of that or pushing that rose colored narrative you’re clinging too. If that’s how you relate to that particular time- then fine. But King isn’t romanticizing anything about that time period IF you actually read the novel and know his views and actually see what the children are DEALING with. That’s the point.
          Not American steel and less STDs. Idiot.

          • Prince Of Darkness

            You have a victim complex in that you are obsessed with being a victim. The novel celebrated that era in many ways just as the campfire scene in Stand By Me did. It celebrated an era when rock and roll was new, of kids going to the Saturday matinee and being scared by monster movies. Of baseball games in the Tracker brothers empty lot. Of the simple thrill of riding your bicycle with little care in the world. IT was about many things, but much of it was set in a time when the country was a much simpler and innocent place.

          • Khy

            “but much of it was set in a time when the country was a much simpler and innocent place.”

            *Facepalm* Not even touching that.

            “Of the simple thrill of riding your bicycle with little care in the world”
            Except for an immortal monster slaughtering your ass.
            All those things you’re mentioning- Pennywise used AGAINST the losers at some point. The movie monsters, the bike riding, the baseball games- IT took ALL of that and used it at some point in the novel to fuck the characters up which further adds to the point that there was nothing “charming” about 1950s Derry. Even those small pleasantries were used AGAINST the losers. Only thing they found solace in was each other and friendship is timeless.

          • J Jett

            Do you secretly hate and despise women J Jett. In insulting other people, you always like to use the female genitals in a most degrading and humiliating ways in many of your hissy fits. It is envy or jealousy or both? Or maybe women just disgust you so much that they are the lowest thing you can compare someone to. Ironic, considering that you yourself appear more feminine than many females.

          • WALKTER

            Having a vagina doesn’t make you special I have an asshole and it’s pretty much the same thing, they both provide the same function, you can’t tell me women are superior to men because they know the pains of child birth, I ate two pounds of cheese last week and gave birth to twins the next day.

          • DAMN LMAO READ THE BITCH

          • Prince Of Darkness

            Do you own the hardback edition of IT khy or anyone else verbally menstruating over my comments (my copy is from 1985)? If you do, open it to page 125. There, in plain english is King having Bill Denborough state to his creative writing class instructor that there is no double meaning or metaphor to his stories. Sometimes, a story is just a story, a tale told by the writer. I’ve read It probably nine times over the years and just began reading it again last night after this exchange. The writing character in every King novel is almost always a shadow of King and his beliefs. IT was not a metaphor for abuse, bullying, ect., it was a simply a story that King wrote in a cocaine induced high.

          • WALKTER

            IT was published in 86 nimrod, where did you find that, in a DeLorean? I’m calling bullshit . . . again.

          • Prince Of Darkness

            Usually it’s the usual band of gay guys (khy, J Jett, Creepshow, Matt, ect.) running around BD, pitching bitch fits over any opinion that contradicts their own, but you WALKTER are a meathead. You’re too stupid to debate, so enjoy ignore.

          • WALKTER

            You’re gonna need thicker skin than that if you’re gonna tool around comment sections arguing with folks, unless you’re one of those guys who hits ignore because the hole got too deep, the equivalent of hightailing it to your nearest safespace. FYI an opinion isn’t stated as fact like most the bullshit you’ve been spewing, when someone replies with an opposing “opinion” it might actually be someone trying to correct your dumbass, maybe don’t start bickering with them right off the hop. The closest thing to a bitch fit I’ve seen, is your reaction to someone pointing out a mistake you’ve made or something ridiculous you’ve said.”You’re too stupid to debate” sounds like you’re projecting. You really gotta stop doing that to yourself, I’ve seen you do it atleast twice now, and both times when you use the word “victim” or some variation of it. When I say it sounds like you’re projecting, I don’t mean in my opinion you’re projecting. I mean your displaying the qualities of the insults you use.

          • Khy

            Lol I’m sure you know about those cocaine induced highs.

          • Prince Of Darkness

            No, not really. But I seem to remember your pal J Jett as a matter of factly admitting a few months ago that he has serious addiction issues. I believe guys like you and Jett are very prone to substance abuse as it numbs the perpetual guilt, shame and self loathing.

          • Khy

            *yawn*. Predictable. Let’s talk about you- coward. What has happened to you to turn you into such a humanoid turd? I’m curious to know what makes that puddle of piss you call a brain tick.

          • Prince Of Darkness

            Well, we know that being a living blow up doll for some miserable perv turned you into the miserable perv that you are khy. But me, if one or more of the psychological misfits who have hijacked the BD forums targets me with a girlish hissy fit, I simply verbally bitch slap you back twice as hard.

          • Khy

            Spoken like a true right wing good ole’ boy.

          • Prince Of Darkness

            Most of the unpleasantness on here stems from you, JJett, Matt, occasionally Simon Allen, with Creepshow popping in as a cheerleader verbally slapping someone, they turn around and belt you in the mouth, and you cry. Then you call them all the names other kids called you growing up, with an added hillbilly, Nazi, or homophobe accusation thrown in for maximum sympathy. What it really comes down to is some people tolerate your behavior, and some don’t.

          • Khy

            My playground, my rules. And you know the best thing about it “snow flake”? You can’t do a fuckin thing about it by cry and whine like a little coward bitch while every one laughs. You know who the real monster is? The idiot that harassed and bullied a molestation victim while advocating for them. You made yourself look like the brainless sack of sperm that you are. Everyone saw that and will never take you seriously. Own the fact that you are a hateful and disgusting turd.

            I would say you’re the joke of BD but even you don’t matter enough to claim that title.

            Nine times over the years and I just started it again last night. Open the hardback version to page 125. Bill – “But sometimes a story is just a story told by the writer. It’s not always a metaphor for something else.”

          • Ted Hendershot

            >IT was about many things, but much of it was set in a time when the country was a much simpler and innocent place.

            But it’s literally–sometimes disgustingly–about the loss of innocence. That’s not just the central theme, it’s like the entire plot. It’s the opposite of a nostalgic romp.

          • Prince Of Darkness

            I’d say it’s a horror tale that includes many themes including the loss of innocence, set within a nostalgic romp to the past. If you are obsessed with the concept of victimization (as most in this thread are), then that is all you will ever get out of the story.

          • chrishaagan

            When was America ever simple or innocent?

          • Prince Of Darkness

            Never said it was. I said American life was much more simpler and innocent “in many ways” than it was now.

          • Tim Nuttall

            The novel is pretty much about how Derry is a horrible place under the surface, IT being a sort personification of that decay.

          • Prince Of Darkness

            No, Derry had it’s problems just like any other town. But IT’s presence influenced and amplified those bad things. IT fed of the bad things and used them to it’s advantage. The shootout with the Bradley gang and the fire at the Black spot were influenced and pushed to the extreme by IT.

        • WALKTER

          “But in the 50’s we didn’t have people being kidnapped and forced into sex trafficking.”
          It’s actually called human trafficking and it’s been around for centuries.
          “We didn’t have terrorism.”
          Explain the Black Spot and the Ku Klux Klan, how is that not terrorism? Again, you claim something that’s been around for centuries, didn’t exist in the 50s.
          “We didn’t have entire cities like Baltimore, Detroit, Indianapolis, St. Louis, and many more cities turned into war zones of poverty, lawlessness, and failure.”
          Something that’s plague every society since the dawn of time didn’t exist in the 50s? strange, someone must’ve called a time out I guess. Well except for the Bradley gang.
          “Casual sex wasn’t the equivalent of playing Russian Roulette with your gentiles.”
          Not knowing about something doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist. Didn’t Mike’s dad even mention some medical ailment that Mike thought was gonorrhea? what am I talking about it was the 50s, that kind of stuff didn’t happen.
          I’m not so sure we read the same book, I’m not all that convinced you’ve read any books going by your comment. It’s like you’re visiting us from another, more ignorant, dimension.

          • Prince Of Darkness

            And you have never spoken to anyone who was alive in the 50’s have you? School shootings, Arab gunmen blowing up parades and shooting up nightclubs, and crashing planes into skyscrapers killing thousands on American soil, entire industries that employed hundreds of thousands shipped over seas, yeah, that was really prevalent in the 50’s. America was really thriving during that period. Did bad things happen then? Of course, but not at the level they do today. Americans didn’t even need to go to college to make a decent living and a four year degree meant you were set for life. Can you say about now? Kids didn’t sit in front of their tvs playing video games all day, they went outside and interacted with each other. They weren’t tied into their phones 24/7 like brainwashed sheep. People went to college to get an education and they didn’t need safe spaces to protect their feelings. Your problem Walkster like many people in this thread is that you can’t see outside the little box that is your stupid little life or see how much the world has changed over the decades.

          • WALKTER

            I give your comment a 9/11, as it is suspicious and requires further investigation.
            “You have never spoken to anyone who was alive in the 50’s have you?”
            No, never. I have never once spoken a word to either of my parents, aunts, uncles or grandparents. I even run away from people over the age of 50.
            “School shootings, terrorists blowing up parades and shooting up nightclubs, crashing planes into skyscrapers killing thousands, all on American soil.”
            Well yeah, no duh. Bush wasn’t president back then plus we didn’t have holograms. By the way, 9/11was fake, and Obama isn’t black . . . . wake up sheeple!
            “People didn’t even need to go to college to make a decent living and a four year degree alone meant you were set for life.”
            They still don’t, but they should. Otherwise they grow up and start sounding like you.
            “I told quite a few people at work who were alive in the 50’s about this thread and what you people are saying. They laughed and said you’re a moron if you don’t hink things were better back then.”
            Really? lol. You told a bunch of people at work you were arguing with strangers on the internet, and they laughed!! are you sure they weren’t laughing at you? that’s awesome.
            Well I told the shadows masters how much of a stupid head you were being so they decided to send one of Bush’s airplane holograms with a Don Cheney strapped to it, over to your house right now, so bye I guess.

      I’m with you, had no interest and I’m curious. i had fond memories of the original but don’t regard it as a classic by any means. Yes, the voice will be the clincher as will – perhaps – reviews, though i normally don’t go for such things.

      • Nyghtfall

        For me, it’s gonna be hella tough for Skarsgard to beat Curry playing a demon clown with a Boston accent. If he can somehow make the character his own and sell me on his take, then I’m in.

        • sliceanddice

          does he have that accent in the book?

          • Nyghtfall

            I don’t know, I’ve never read the book.

          • Chip

            Accent? No, but has a few different ‘personas’ depending on who he’s dealing with. He can be mundane or even coy, or outright and loud much like Curry did,.

  • Lady Bathory

    Looks pretty interesting. I’m glad the clown looks a bit more terrifying than silly compared to the original.

    • Jonathon Knight

      Except he didn’t look silly in the original. He looked like a harmless clown at first but when you get near him the teeth came out. That’s why Pennywise effective.

      Having him look creepy all the time will make the character less effective but more memorable to this asswipe of a generation.

      • Lady Bathory

        To me he looked so silly that I couldn’t take the movie seriously at times.

  • LordandSaviorCthulhu

    Hmmm, the loser’s clubs is not seven boys, but 6 boys and 1 girl. The girl is played by Sophia Lillis, so its a little weird that her name isn’t listed with the rest of the losers and another boy is added. Nicholas Hamilton is playing Henry Bowers who is most definitely not a member of the Loser’s Club and is actually a major antagonist through the story.

    • BloodyDisgusted

      K.

    • Chip

      Ehr, what are you talking about? There’s no extra boy here.

  • Jimmy Cthulhuhan

    Not seein the big hubbub here, still looks hokey. Almost like more of a remake of the tv version than a fresh/better interpretation of the book (if that makes sense).

    I will see it regardless, it doesn’t look “bad”, but expectations are not high.

    • Weresmurf

      Oh *piss off* and take your edge with you.

      • Tiger Quinn

        Saying that something looks a little cheesy does not mean that something is “edgy” or anyone is trying anything. It’s an opinion. Worth exactly that. And the day you buy this web site, doll, is the day you can tell people to leave.

        • Weresmurf

          I have some chips here, can you lean over them, I need some of your excess salt…

        • WALKTER

          Dang, that was a good one.

    • macguffin54

      In what way does it seem like more of a remake of the mini-series than a new adaptation?? How could that even be the case when they are both based on the book.

      • Tiger Quinn

        Tone, costumes, actors, etc. I don’t share the opinion but you loons are acting like this guy said something shocking.

        • Tetra-Gramaton-Cleric

          Not shocking, just nonsensical.

          The trailer looked nothing like the TV series.

      • Jimmy Cthulhuhan

        -shrug- take into mind this is all judged off a damn trailer (and an opinion at that), take with a grain of salt, don’t have a hissy fit like these other people 😛

        Just that it seems to be doin the same thing the tv version did… using the Pennywise clown form as a sort of Freddie-esque marketable supervillain that occasionally turns into other things. The book wasn’t like that. May seem like a nitpick, but it changes the whole vibe.

        I’m not saying it’s necessarily bad for that though. The hokeyness comment was more due to the rather generic scares (oh hey, a shakey head bit, never seen that before), cringy child acting, and still ridiculous looking clown getup (much too try hard evil/scary… clowns aren’t scary unless they look normal/silly!).

        Still, it looks more good (well, “ok”) than bad. I just don’t get why everyone is goin all massive hypesville when here I am a little bit disappointed.

    • Tetra-Gramaton-Cleric

      Tonally nor aesthetically did that trailer look anything like the miniseries.

    • Papa_spoosh

      The mini series was garbage.. It’s only remembered because pennywise was such a haunting villain but the stale directing, poor acting… Down right boring pacing does not seem to be reflected in this trailer.. It is however based on the same source material so plot wise what are you expecting? Lol

      • Jimmy Cthulhuhan

        -shrug- First off, I didn’t say anything about the original series being good or bad (if anything I said it was bad with the “better” comment… though I think it was alright, given the lowered standards of being a 90’s network tv movie).

        Perhaps “remake” was the wrong word though. I just see the same cheesy Freddy-esque supervillain marketization as the tv version here. Even more so really, but I do understand it is just a trailer. The book was not that way at all. I don’t think Pennywise would be such a memorable character if not for the tv version’s (and now this).

        Regardless, not my real problem with it (though it does kinda lead to the problem in a way). The corny jump scares are what disappoint me. Those seem to be all the rage these days though (see: Conjuring), maybe I’m just old and hateful.

      • Dr. Acula

        I’m sorry but i’ve seen the mini series like 5 times (the first half anyway) and this trailer just looks a shot-for-shot remake of it, rather than another adaption of the book.

        only slight things have been changed, projector instead of a book, georgie hitting his head and some tint/filter over top that everyone loves so much for some stupid reason.

        Even if it is based on the same source material, did King write down camera angles in the novel? oh…..

        • Papa_spoosh

          I would guess you’re being fooled by the “1990 vs 2017” trailer side by side going around. Of course certain scenes will look very similar(even tho many scenes on that video are not of the same parts they just fit the purpose of the video) but the mini series was rough. Tim curry was great and pennywise haunts many nightmares still but the rest of the acting? Holy shit it was bad. And it just plain doesn’t hold up. If you think the actual aesthetics and tone look similar than I’m not sure what to tell you but simply the idea of updating it to reflect the 80s (for the first film) is enough reason to expect many relevant changes.

          • Dr. Acula

            what trailer? I’ve never seen this vs trailer. I have seen the original mini series, and this new movie’s trailer. I never saw the video of the two, I made my own connections, the camera angles of the running down the side of road with paper boat is exact. It is just flipped when he is looking down in the hole. I never thought the original mini series is good, I’m just a huge Tim fan and it is one of my favorite roles of his. And this is only a trailer so maybe in the full movie, those scenes in the mini series are also in this and someone can make another vs video of the whole thing.

  • Wolf Kane

    Looks very good, excited for this one.

  • CeCe Says Ugonlearntaday

    SOOOO HERE FOR IT!! CAN’T WAIT!!

  • jasonlives1986

    This looks great to be honest and I think they got a major hit here.

    Expect that long gesturing pet sematary remake to get green lit that weekend

  • Steve Newton
    • Dr. Acula

      you mean Pennywhistle*

  • Francesco Falciani

    i loved it…it looks like a nightmare on elm street and penny wise is very krueger…i hope new line could make a lot of money with this and move farward with a new chapter of a new nightmare.

    • Chip

      They’ve already been working on that for about a year. Though if this does well, it would be a big push for fantasy horror.

      • Francesco Falciani

        dunno i don’t think they are still working on it

  • DS Ullery

    Loved it! Looking forward to this.

  • Joe Sanchez

    I’m in!!!

  • Tiger Quinn

    I wasn’t a big fan of any of this until the trailer – it’s definitely much better than I expected, but the amount of amazing trailers we’ve seen v. end product can be a little depressing, no? In any case, the look of the film is so layered and rich, I can’t wait to see it for the sets alone. Definitely looking forward now.

  • Marvelnerd

    Looks a lot better than I was expecting. The sink scene seems kinda… cheesy to me with all that gore, honestly. But I’ll be looking forward to it.

  • Boydon

    A bit hokey especially with the home movies scenes which just reminded me of Sinister and not in a good way. And these kids can’t act scared for shit but the last scene was absolutely terrifying so I remain hopeful.

    • Saturn

      Aye, that scene was definitely influenced by Sinister, or perhaps even Phantasm – I like the look of it though.

  • Shawn Michael

    Aren’t they supposed to grow up and be adults though most the movie? It appears that they are children through the entire movie which makes this look bad 🙁

    • Chip

      There will be two films.

    • Charlie lerner

      there will be 2 movies chill out

      • Ocelot006 .

        If this movie makes money there will be two. Don’t forget the money part.

        • I Am Colossus

          There’s already a heavy fanbase for the original film and book….There will be 2…

          • Ocelot006 .

            With good box office, yes there will be two.

          • Saturn

            Even without good box office there will be 2 – the 2nd part is (iirc) in the process of shooting now/

          • Ocelot006 .

            But it’s not in the process of shooting right now. Or you know what, according to you it is. Who are all the adult actors?

          • Saturn

            The important this in what I said is IIRC (if I recall correctly) – wasn’t there news that the 2nd film had begun (or is supposed to start) shooting recently?

            Actually : http://screenrant.com/stephen-king-it-movie-sequel-part-2-filming/

          • Saturn

            Okay, not sure what happened here but I posted a link to the article that mentions that the 2nd movie was to begin filming March 17 – not sure if it’s because I had a link in it, but for whatever reason it’s not showing.
            I’ll try again after posting this post, but the details are available over at ScreenRant,

          • Saturn
          • Ocelot006 .

            And it would certainly be best to wait till after the first one makes money because if it does make money….they can get their hands on some big names for the adults. If they did it now they could get I don’t know….fat Matthew Perry

    • Papa_spoosh

      The childhood portion of the original miniseries is the only good part of the mini series (other than penny wise himself) so that should not make this look bad.

  • Charlie lerner

    I have high hopes mainly because of the production team, especially the writers. I feel this project was taken seriously unlike other remakes (ie nightmare on elm st, friday the 13th, halloween etc.)

  • Nyghtfall

    I just figured out who’s hairdo the new Pennywise’s reminds me of – Trickster from the ’94 flick, “Brainscan,” starring Edward Furlong.

    • NixEclips

      Oh man. I thought I was the only one who remembered that!

      • Saturn

        Nah, I remember it too – it was pretty darn good – it’s a shame Furlong isn’t remembered just as much for that movie than he is for T2.
        I’ve seen a few of his movies over the years and actually quite like him in them – hell, if Cameron does make another Terminator movie when he gets the rights back I’d like to see Furlong reprise his role – although Arnie would have to get him in the gym for some time first….

    • James

      Now that was a unique little film

  • Deadcalm

    That last shot… so f***ing effective.
    Interested to see this now.

  • Drew999

    While I agree with Boydon on the Sinister comparison with the projector scene I really liked the tone of the trailer. I was hoping to hear Pennywise’s voice but I like Skarsgard’s look.

    • Chip

      Well it’s either that or do exactly what the TV Special did, and that’d be a little too kitch. This at least ‘would’ have been a neat surprise if it hadn’t been spoiled. I hope there’s more to it, or that this movie has a lot of cards up it’s sleeves.

  • Sky Commander

    Anyone notice the leaper at 1:50? Slow it down to about 0.25 speed and you can see it chasing Eddie

    • Biscoito18

      Thanks!
      *Leper

  • DBZEROGRAVITY

    this is one hell of a trailer. just enough and not too much given away

  • RKSDooM

    IT is my favorite book, period, and the tone and cinematography and production design all look perfect, to my eye.

    Here’s hoping the script and the performances are just as good, and that the endearing natures of the main characters, the emotional bond between them, and the true horror of the thing that lives beneath Derry all manages to come through in the final product.

    (And if they could include the more “spiritual” stuff – like the scene where the group all goes on a “vision quest” type deal in their underground clubhouse and witness the creatures arrival on the planet, and all the stuff with the deadlights and the turtle – that would be super keen as well.)

  • I Am Colossus

    I don’t recall people doubting this very much….I’m sure there were those who would but….After seeing the first image of Skarsgard my ears perked up for sure…. But after this trailer I gotta say…This is the ONLY movie I really want to see this year….It’s like E.T. meets Elm St. …. Absolutely brilliant looking…I’m excited for this..And I thought the old one was lame…. Loved Pennywise but the rest was cheesy….This looks like the movie I thought I was going to see as a kid

  • If you’re afraid of this, you’re afraid of everything.

    • Nyghtfall

      I’m 45, married, child-free by choice, and live in the suburbs. I saw The Exorcist on TV at age 10, and had nightmares for a week afterward. I’ve been hooked on the genre ever since. If a Horror movie makes me afraid to go out to my shed at night, that’s ALWAYS a good thing – that’s my litmus test. If I decide to go see this, and it proves to be that scary, then I’ll have gotten my money’s worth.

    • Nahuel Benvenuto

      horror movies are not really scary at all, you can get tense and/or jumpscared, or grossed out by the violence or disturbing images, but not really scared of watching it and wanting it to stop, the closest feeling i got to that was playing the Outlast game for PC

  • m△cs

    Ok if this one will be a great box office success split the Adults part in two and add more stuff from the book !

    • On the bright side, both movies should be about two hours which means in the end the films will total 4 hours, which is an hour longer than the 1990 mini-series.

  • Ulvis Zirnis

    I must say, I’m very impressed

    • Dr. Acula

      why? it is just a shot for shot remake of the original miniseries? just watch that one with a filter over the top.

      • Amy Peterson

        The original miniseries is lame with extremely bad acting.

  • PsychoMantis18

    Meh

  • Carl Griffiths

    When little Georgie hits his head and falls down, the horror begins.
    He’s in a coma, the whole film in his mind.
    If they kill IT, they save Georgie and he can wake up.

    • Jonathan Larsson

      That would be so anticlimactic.

    • Fabuu #

      Well fuck

    • thegreatiandi

      Man…I was thinking the same thing.

  • Seal Clubber

    Man, reading these comments I think there are a lot of people wearing “rose colored glasses” looking back on the original “IT”. The 6-hour TV miniseries was OK for it’s time but I tried re-watching it a couple of years back and it has not held up – it’s almost unwatchable (I only made it one hour). I’m excited to see this interpretation of IT.

    • It’s actually 3 hours I think, so in the end Muschiettie’s two 2-hour films will be about an hour longer than the mini-series.

      • Seal Clubber

        Man I must be remembering it wrong … I was sure it was 6 for some reason.

        • Nope! Two 2-hour parts. When you take away commercials each half is roughly 90 minutes.

        • Prince Of Darkness

          The television version of The Stand was a three part mini series I believe, maybe that’s what you’re thinking about. 1979’s Salem’s Lot was a two part miniseries cut together on dvd into a two and a half hour movie. I agree though, the 80’s IT mini series was corny and hokey.

          • J.J. rdz

            90’s

        • Chip

          Probably because it drags out very long in part two.

  • zob rombie

    It looks pretty fucking cool. Still think they should have made a tv series but hey, I’m not complaining.

  • OneSun ThaDon

    This

    • Dr. Acula

      is

  • OneSun ThaDon

    This trailer reminds me of the trailer for nightmare on elm street (2010)nice visuals with cheesy jumpscares.still on the fence about this.

    • Chip

      Don’t even bring up Platinum Dunes films.

  • Trav

    In all honesty, this looks pretty good. I’m still on the fence though. We all know a trailer is never the best indication for the success of a movie. This could be one of the better remakes we’ve seen in awhile, or this could fall flat on its face and be an over the top mess.

  • Trav

    Also, is there a sequel planned? It looks like they are only covering the story from when they were kids. Are we getting the part where they are all adults in a sequel?

    • Brian VonDerahe

      Yes. This is just part 1. Part 2 is supposedly filming this summer.

  • Vesuvian Villain

    Pro-Trump or Anti-Trump or No-Fucks-To-Give, I had to put this up for you guys. It’s hilarious and you know it.

  • Brian VonDerahe

    Mama had its flaws but at its core was a fantastic horror movie. I am confident that this one will be even better.

    • Chip

      The ending squeezed a few tears out of me. That’s enough to make it a unique horror movie and worth at least a 7/10. Maybe an 8 as something other than the sum of it’s parts.

  • REC03

    is this the most comments ever for a Bloody Disgusting post?

  • DarkBree

    Ok, it looks good!! Loved the atmosphere and the dark tone!!!

  • Dr. Acula

    lol they just superimposed him into the sewer that is cheap and can’t believe people like this, it looks like a shot for shot remake of the miniseries, with crappier actors and not a new, more truer adaption of the book.

  • Dr. Acula

    but you dont feel bad for him DYING?

  • Dr. Acula

    they did already, all the people who said that this trailer is scary and that it looks good.

  • Carl Chrystan

    Looks good so far. Just pleeeeease don’t end up with a massive CGI spider at the end!!!

  • Dani

    I just left something floating in the sewer…….
