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.
