The Best Look at Pennywise Yet!

A pair of astounding new shots of Pennywise have been uploaded to Imgur that show Bill Skarsgard (read our interview) in his chilling makeup. They’re obviously scans out of some magazine, although there’s no info as to which they’ve been pulled from. However, they’re easily the best photos shared online, although these were pretty outstanding as well.

In this year’s IT, directed by Andy Muschietti, “A group of young kids face their biggest fears when they seek answers to the disappearance of children in their hometown of Derry, Maine. They square off against an evil clown named Pennywise, whose history of murder and violence dates back for centuries.

The kids in peril, the Losers’ Club, include Jaeden Lieberher, Finn Wolfhard, Sophia Lillis, Jack Dylan Grazer, Wyatt Oleff, Chosen Jacobs and Jeremy Ray Taylor. Javier Botet will play The Leper, and Nicholas Hamilton plays Henry Bowers. The cast also includes Owen Teague, who plays bully Patrick Hocksetter. Bill Skarsgard is our new Pennywise.

The film will be in theaters September 8, 2017.

    Wow his hair in the 2nd pic looks awesome to me, creepier since he looks like a real madman killer

    • Bla Blah

      Right. But people are already complaining he looks too scary (despite the fact that he looks like abnormal vintage clown) so having that hair would not worsen that

      • HipsterDoofus

        Too scary? Other than the sewer scene with Georgie and IT establishing trust, Pennywise was never approachable or likeable. He embodied fear at first sight. People are so insanely hung up on how he looked in the TV version, it’s insane.

        • Chance LeBoeuf

          Don’t really understand why some people think Pennywise was supposed to be approachable as if that was the point. Um, no. The point is to terrify the children because to him that was “salting the meat”. He always tried to scare them from the get go.

          • Evan3

            It is a female…

          • Chance LeBoeuf

            Well, sorta true It doesn’t technically even have a gender despite the implication and I was just typing. Wasn’t the point of my comment.

          • Chip

            Evan3 was being pedantic. IT, the real IT, is female in the sense that she’s been laying a brood that is almost ready to hatch. But she exists behind everything else. Pennywise is just an avatar, so the two should almost be treated as separate entities. It’s kinda telling that there’s a room full of clown dolls in this movie, since that’s basically what Pennywise is , a puppet for IT to speak through.

            The script is a little vague as to whether or not they’re going that far though.

          • optimusnegamus

            woah.

  • zombie84_41

    Ok now seeing it how its suppose to I have to say this shit is fuckin scary and creepy as fuck. much better then when they were first showing what he would look like this is going to be one hell of a scary movie. Or I hope it will be.

  • SpaceManSpliffz .

    wow a real scary beaver dressed as a clown, i’m shaking. they should have kept him hidden until the movie releases, because the more i see of him, the less i want to see this movie. pun intended, this movie is looking like clown shoes

  • Matheus Martins

    I have seen real clowns with a scarier face than this….

    The pics look like they came from a 80s/90s movie. I’ll give it that. Thats cool.

    • Boydon

      i wish they’d gone with just a straight up plain clown face. this looks too stylized. like they pulled up high fashion consultants to come up with the look.

      • Bla Blah

        He looks exactly like what was described in the books. Jesus Christ guys. He looks like a vintage clown. The book too place in the mid 1900s. This looks like how clowns did in the past. Google clown costumes from the past. He looks like an old clown.
        Why does he look creepy?
        BECAUSE ITS PSYCHOLOGICALLY PROVEN THAT CLOWNS ARE SCARY TO US.

        • Boydon

          i was mainly talking about his make-up, none of which resembles the vintage clown look (google it yourself).

          PS. HE DOESN’T LOOK CREEPY AT ALL

          • Bla Blah

            what about it doesn’t? The white face, red lips, even the lines on his eyes. The only thing in-clown like are the teeth, which may be intentional as in some scenes we see his buck teeth are actually fangs. Idk.
            It seems you cant please anyone. If he looks too scary, people complain. If he looks like a normal clown, people complain he isn’t creepy or scary enough. Idk what it will take for you guys to just watcha movie about a killer demon monster clown and enjoy it.

          • Boydon

            again, it’s way too stylized. it looks more like marilyn manson’s abandoned paint than that of a vintage clown.

            and i have yet to hear anyone complain that normal clowns aren’t scary enough. it’s exactly what made pennywise in the original movie so visceral and terrifying.

          • Bla Blah

            But that’s the thing I’m trying to say. Both look normal. Someone needs to edit the red lines from his face to see if it really makes a difference. But when u look at pics of Clara belle and bozo and other vintage old school clowns, this looks really channels that. It’s not colorful and neither were they and they weren’t intended to be scary at all.

      • Georgie’s Arm

        It’s cinema, so I prefer a little finesse in the design. Especially since they’re going with classy cinematography. A regular clown would look rather cheap and boring on the big screen. And wouldn’t stand out next to the dozens of killer clowns we’ve seen in recent years.

        • Boydon

          a little finesse you say? they went overboard with it. he looks like they dressed him in a comme des garcons outfit.

          • Georgie’s Arm

            Disagree. They clearly put a lot of thought in the design to convey the spirit of the novel’s Pennywise, yet it feels clean and restrained.

          • Boydon

            they put too much thought, that’s the problem. he doesn’t resemble a vintage clown in the slightest and quite frankly is not scary at all.

          • HipsterDoofus

            Damn it to hell! Here they are paying seasoned professionals, when Bloody-Disgusting’s very own BOYDON! could have saved the day and this entire film from certain doom!

          • Evan3

            I agree with Broydon, but this shit is hilarious!

          • Boydon

            ahh the special snowflake of the day. all it took was one think piece paralleling king’s misery to social media behavior for doofuses like you to carry the torch of behalf of those poor seasoned professionals. don’t catch fire now.

      • Chip

        The whole movie is stylized…and y’know, I like that. We haven’t since a movie this lurid since the Elm Street franchise (Pre remake). I’m really digging New Line getting back to that.

    • HipsterDoofus

      Pics or it didn’t happen.

  • Kk

    Wish people would stop comparing IT to the mini show and read the book

    • A-TOWN CALI DUDE

      For real, I read the book and so far what has been shown of this new adaptation is spot on with the source material.

    • HipsterDoofus

      If I had to ballpark it…80% of general internet comments are from people instantly reacting and reflecting back to the first time they saw the miniseries before the age of 10. 75% of that 80% probably never even held the book in their hands, let alone read it. I’d then guess that 40% of that 80% didn’t even know it was originally based on a book.

      • Wolf Myers

        I LOL when people think the mini series was a movie. I LOL all the way to the toilet.

  • Evan3

    I haven’t been impressed with any of this to date and It looks about as threatening as a bag of chips (he’d be right at home in Wes Craven’s Hills have Eyes). BUT, I do like this particular image. I remember the book mentioning that the clown’s face would crack as It lost its cool and it’s true nature emerged. They capture that perfectly in this image.

    • kingfan1970

      Don’t remember that being said.

      • Wolf Myers

        Just read the book. It was indeed said.

        • kingfan1970

          I have, at least a dozen times.

          • Evan3

            Perhaps it was described as decay under the clown facade? Either way, this comes closer than anything I’ve seen to my memory of the book description.

  • Barry El Beardo

    I love the cracked white make up on his five head.

    I think that if they did a ‘normal’ looking clown it wouldn’t work. I think these days audiences would just laugh. Same as in The Conjuring where the Annabelle doll looked a lot creepier than the real one. When you see the real Annabelle doll, you realise how fucking stupid it looks!
