The big screen adaptation of Stephen King’s novel “IT” is less then two weeks away from hitting theaters and a new set of high-resolution images reveals terrified kids from The Losers’ Club.
Warner Brothers release of thirty new images for the movie “IT” shows the Losers Club on the hunt for Pennywise. Although this will be the first time Stephen King’s horror novel has been adapted for the big screen, it was 27 years ago when it first aired as a television miniseries in 1990.
Bill Skarsgard will be bringing an obviously scarier “Pennywise” to life when it hits theaters, but in 1990 Tim Curry played the evil clown and I can’t wait to see just how scary Skarsgard version will be.
In the novel the story takes place in the 1950’s as kids and the 1980’s as adults, but for this first film in a planned duology the story involving the kids will be set in the 1980’s with the second film-taking place in modern times.
The fact that Warner Brothers has adapted the novel for the big screen with an R-rating should allow the filmmakers to do Stephen King’s book justice as the trailers for the movie promises a dark and horrifying film.
Cast: Bill Skarsgaard, Jaeden Lieberher, Finn Wolfhard, Jack Dylan Grazer, Wyatt Oleff, Chosen Jacobs, Jeremy Ray Taylor
