Brand New ‘IT’ Photos Reveal Pennywise and the Losers’ Club

With the highly anticipated trailer for Stephen King’s IT adaptation due to hit the internet this coming Wednesday, we have a bit of a treat to tide you over until then.

USA Today were lucky enough to get their hands on three new images from Director Andy Muschietti’s IT. We know a lot of you are not sure what to expert from the film, but these creepy new images should whet your appetite.

Muschietti also recently shared some details on what we can expect to see from Pennywise.

It happens in the book, this coming of age and kids facing their own mortality, which is something that in real life happens in a more progressive way and slowed down. There’s a passage (in It) that reads, ‘Being a kid is learning how to live and being an adult is learning how to die.’ There’s a bit of a metaphor of that and it just happens in a very brutal way, of course.

It’s a tiny bit of information, but that sticks with you so much. Maybe it is real as long as children believe in it. And in a way, Pennywise’s character is motivated by survival. In order to be alive in the imagination of children, he has to keep killing.

It’s established that Pennywise takes the shape of your worst fear. He doesn’t have a steady behavior, he doesn’t expose how he thinks, and that’s what makes him really unpredictable.

It’s about remembering things that they have forgot. Getting back in touch with those memories is such an important part of the plot, that makes you think about what will happen 30 years later when Pennywise comes again.

Part one of Andy Muschietti’s IT adaptation will hit theaters on September 8, 2017.

Bill Skarsgard stars as Pennywise, the scary sewer-dwelling monster who shows himself as a clown.

Jaeden Lieberher, Finn Wolfhard, Nicholas Hamilton, Jack Dylan Grazer, Wyatt Oleff, Chosen Jacobs, and Jeremy Ray Taylor are known as the modern Losers’ Club.

in a small town in Maine, where seven children known as The Losers’ Club come face to face with life problems, bullies, and a monster that takes the shape of a clown called Pennywise.

Creature performer Javier Botet plays The Leper, and Owen Teague plays Patrick Hocksetter, a bully who torment the Losers’ Club.

Andy Muschietti (Mama) directs from a screenplay by Gary Dauberman and Chase Palmer. Dan Lin, Roy Lee, Seth Grahame-Smith, David Katzenberg, and Barbara Muschietti produce.
