Unfortunately, we still have to wait about six months for the readaption of Stephen King's It to reach theatres and we still haven't seen a trailer. However, SXSW got an exclusive sneak peek at the horror movie we're all dying to see!
Check out details below!
While we still haven't seen a trailer for It yet, we've seen plenty of promo pictures including the Losers' Club and Pennywise. Pennywise will be played by Bill Skarsgård, who's also been in Hemlock Grove and Allegiant. Our favorite clown was played by Tim Curry in the 1990 made for TV movie adaption of the novel.
However the exclusive trailer only shown at SXSW didn't feature a lot of Pennywise, but Bloody Disgusting reported that it definitely showed some pretty memorable scenes including the Losers' Club.
“Then we are shown the members of the Loser’s Club meeting each other and realizing that they’ve all been seeing the same entity, before one of them finally says “The Clown.” Once that happens, the teaser then moves into its centerpiece, which shows the members of the Loser’s Club looking at pictures on a carousel slide projector that suddenly acquires a life of its own and begins moving through the slides at an increasingly alarming speed. The pictures are of Georgie and his parents, and each slide zooms in on Georgie’s face before cutting to his mother, whose hair is covering her face. As the projector moves from slide to slide, the hair moves out of his mother’s face, and her face is revealed to be that of Pennywise himself.”
The description of that scene alone has us dying and begging for New Line Cinemas to release the official trailer, but it gets even better.
“The trailer then blows through a flurry of shots, as most trailers are known to do. The most striking image from this succession of shots is the unforgettable moment when blood flows out of Beverly’s sink, only in Muschietti’s film it spews out like a geyser and blasts her in the face. There is also a sublime image of Pennywise approaching two of the children (he has them cornered against a wall), but the shot is framed in a way so that only his long, bony fingers fill the screen. The children are in the background, out of focus but clearly terrified.”
The children aren't going to be the only ones terrified during this entire movie, that's for sure.
In an interview with Collider, producer Roy Lee revealed that there will be two separate movies made and that this first one will be taking the perspective of the children.
“We’re taking it and making the movie from the point of view of the kids, and then making another movie from the point of view of the adults, that could potentially then be cut together like the novel. But it’s gonna be a really fun way of making this movie.”
It will be hitting theaters Sept. 8, 2017.
This is definitely our most anticipated horror movie of the year, but is it yours? Let us know in the comments!
