The new film, which takes visual cues from the original 1990 miniseries of the same name, is set for a worldwide release on September 8. Adapted from King’s 1984 novel, the movie has been directed by Andrés Muschietti from a script co-written by True Detective and Beasts Of No Nation film-maker Cary Fukunaga.
With just under two weeks to go until its grand release, a new set of clips from IT have been released. The first, entitled ‘This Town Is Cursed’, features The Losers Club discussing the spooky goings-on in Derry, while the second is a shortened version of Georgie’s infamous meeting scene with Pennywise.
The final clip, called ‘I Don’t Want To Go Missing Either’, sees the boys discussing whether they should go on a rescue mission.
A new promotional poster for the film has also been released. Produced by Half Hazard Press, the image depicts Georgie walking into Pennywise’s giant mouth.
Meanwhile, a cinema in Austin is offering clown-only screenings of IT when the new film hits theatres next month.
