There’s a Really Cool Tim Curry Easter Egg in New ‘IT’ Trailer!

New Pennywise and old Pennywise share the screen!

The new trailer for Andy Muschietti’s IT was literally just unveiled, and I admit to watching it five times already. It’s unquestionably one of the best trailers of the year, and it also contains a fun little Easter egg that should make all fans of the 1990 mini-series smile.

Paying tribute to the past, a clown doll that appears in that nightmarish scene at the end of the trailer looks EXACTLY like the Tim Curry iteration of Pennywise! Check it out below!

In the new adaptation…

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 Sophia Lillis, 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.

    That is a nice Tim scurry Easter egg as it does look like that doll had a stroke.

    So trendy these days to be “afraid of clowns”. Movie looks cool, but all the sheep will come out and say they are scared of clowns. Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

        Fear of clowns isn’t “trendy”, it is actually a very real thing that a number of people (although not I) actually suffer from. Next to spiders it is probably the most common irrational fear that there is.

      What are you talking about? Clowns have been considered creepy since the 1940s.

      I’m sure it seems “trendy” to today’s teenagers who know nothing of history yet claim to know everything, but the novel was written by Stephen King in 1986…when the original TV movie came out, many became genuinely terrified of clowns. This movie, like many these days, is just another reboot to keep the millennials entertained.

    Dig the scene at the end.
