‘IT’ Will Scare the Crap Out of You in IMAX!

As if this wasn’t already going to be an intense experience, right?

With heart-pounding audio and a massive, crystal-clear image, IMAX has taken movie immersion to a whole new level, and we’re excited to report that Andy Muschietti’s IT will be getting that deluxe IMAX treatment when it arrives next month!

The announcement was made over on Instagram by producer Barbara Muschietti.

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.

    IT scared me at age 11 or 12 but now i find it a kinda boring unless pennywise is in screen. I hope this new one has more scares and since its rated R I hope its got some messed up stuff in the blood n guts area. I just want a movie to scare me.

    is this the real Imax or faux pas retro fitted scam imax? Truly only movies shot on Imax cameras should screen at these cinemas. IT will be fine in a regular theater.

    Yes. YES! We are so jazzed for this movie. How exciting to see it in IMAX. And here I was thinking today how I haven’t seen significant updates in a few days… This may not be a major update but is definitely something I am looking forward to. ~Jacob

    I’ve been asking around: Does anyone have any info on potential midnight openings for IT? I’m really excited for this movie, and would love to go to a midnight opening, but I can’t find any info on it.

  • SpaceManSpliffz .

    5 foot tall beaver teeth is gonna look pretty dang scary

  • Shellraiser

    Is any of “It” filmed with IMAX cameras or on 70mm?

    If not then it will pretty much be like the time I saw Austin Powers Goldmember in IMAX. Enjoyable but unnecessary.

  • Necro

    Cool! Gotta love IMAX! Would love to, but even if I can’t a regular theater is good for me. Please don’t tell me there’s going to be a 3D announcement yet to come.
