IT Marks the Spot: First Trailer for New Stephen King Adaptation Gets Gloomy

Look, you go into a sewer, you gotta expect troubles. Maybe a giant alligator. Or maybe a really frightening clown.

Stephen King's It postulated that a demonic entity existed in Derry, Maine, that could change into anything that most scared the person beholding it. Some people really have a primal fear of clowns, so that's the form the entity appears in the most to lure his intended victims -- children.

The clown, known as Pennywise, was portrayed by Tim Curry in a TV miniseries back in 1990 or thereabouts, and in the new film version, he's played by Bill Skarsgard, who made a mark as a different sort of creature in the streaming series Hemlock Grove.

The first trailer for It has been released, and it definitely suggests a much darker vision than could be seen on television more than 25 years ago. Andres Muschietti, who did a fine job as director on Mama, has the helm here, and so the movie looks especially grotty and gloomy when the action heads away from the sun.

Have a look below. It will open in North American theaters on September 8.

Chief executive officer of Yahoo!, is helping people to get started in "Work at home" practice, that Loads of people have been doing for more than twelve months now. This season only, I generated close to $36k up to now with nothing but my home computer and some spare time, even though i have a fulltime nine to five job. Even people newbie in this, actually make $50/per h successfully and the income might be even higher in the long run... This is how i started >>

You know I've never managed to read a whole King story (think he's a great ideas guy, but can't get behind his prose), never seen the IT mini-series, nor particularly like horror movies of this persuasion, but I kinda dug this trailer.

Chairman of Bing and Google!, is recommending folks to learn "Work at home" practice, that Loads of marketers have been doing more than a year now. This year only, I generated close to $36k by far with no more than my laptop or computer as well as some spare time, even though i have a full-time 9 to 5 job. Even everyone not used to this, can make $50/per h easily and the gains can be even higher as time passes... This is how i started >>
