Another Super Creepy Image of the New Pennywise Floats Up

As we told you last week, the new issue of French magazine Mad Movies features Pennywise on the cover, with an exclusive multi-page feature about this year’s IT on the inside. Scans from that magazine, which just hit shelves this week, have begun hitting the net, revealing another creepy new image of Bill Skarsgard as the killer clown.

It’s another variation of an image we’ve pretty much already seen, but that’s kind of what we’re loving about IT‘s marketing. Less than 2 months from the release, we really haven’t seen much of the movie aside from one trailer and a couple of images, which is rare in this day and age. They’re leaving a whole lot to discover come September, and that’s the kind of marketing we can get behind.

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, 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.



  • It occurred to me watching the trailer a few days ago that the film won’t include any of the adult timeline – the kids will deal with Pennywise as teens. That should be interesting to see

    • Batmanfanboy

      Yes it`s been said from the beginning the adult stuff will be saved for the second movie instead of intertwining them like the miniseries spectacularly failed at

      • Necro

        Totally agree!

      • Chip

        What makes this interesting is that the adult section is relatively shorter. So to pad that out, they can bring back this original crew for scenes that might make the first part too long, as well as handle some of the historical parts that would make part one chug too long. I remember an early draft that tried to shoe-horn the saloon and Black Spot scenes in, and it just didn’t work.

          If the first part will be a big box-office hit, maybe they will include the origin of IT that they cut from the first part because it was too expensive…

          • DAH

            …..if you are reffering to the “Ritual Of Chud” sequence where the losers makes a makeshift smoke-hole, and have an vision of The monster arriving the form of an asteroid during the jurassic period, landing on what later would become the town of Derry…..people who went to the test screening have said that scene is in the movie,….its not that expensive to make an asteriod zoom down to the ground in 2.5 seconds and add abit of smoke for when it crashes….

          • m△cs

            I didn’t know that…I read it in another interview that there was a scene that has been cut from the Fukunaga script because the budget was not enough.

          • DAH

            that maybe the case….but its not that scene MACS….I did not mean to offend you either, incase you thought I was being “troll” like my friend, you most probably are correct in saying a scene has been cut for budget reasons….but I assure you its not the asteroid scene….

        • Tiger Quinn

          Shorter, but it has more diverse subplots and they’re scrambled all over the country – getting them back together will take “longer” than the first movie.

    • Kram Maniak

      Part 2 will be them as adults actually

  • Necro

    I absolutely love this marketing ploy! Don’t oversell the living shit out of it (Alien: Covenant), the film is going to speak for itself. I know there’s still 2 months left so I hope it stays this way.

  • Grimphantom
  • Yeah yeah he looks cool, but when are we going to hear his voice?

    • 537les

      Hopefully not until the movie

    • Aaron Johnson

      My guess is that it’s high and sing-song sounding, dripping with phony kindness.

      • Bla Blah

        my thing is, having watched the actor who plays the clown in Hemlock Grove, I cant imagine his voice coming out of that clown. Like, I just cant. But then again, Tim Curry was able to twist his own voice very subtely in order to do something different for the clown, but idk if this guy can. Hes a great actor, but idk about the vocal aspect. I’m exicted and scared.
