Of all of Stephen King’s horror novels, IT is perhaps his most terrifying.
The book tells the story of a group of children who find themselves terrorised by an evil clown named Pennywise, whose history of murder and violence dates back for centuries. It was made into a nerve-shredding TV mini-series in 1990, starring Tim Curry as the shapeshifting clown, and now it’s being given the big screen treatment, with a brand new adaptation, coming to Cineworld this September.
The first trailer landed this week, and some clever YouTuber has already matched up the shots from the new promo with shots from the 1990 mini-series, and – what do you know –it looks like this new movie is going to be a faithful retelling of what is arguably Stephen King’s most famous story.
See what you think.
IT arrives at Cineworld on 8th September.
And watch the proper trailer here…!
