Warner Bros. has released a bunch of new images for Andrés Muschietti’s R-rated adaptation of Stephen King’s terrifying novel, IT. The high-resolution images give us a new look at the Losers Club, which consists of Bill, Beverly, Richie, Eddie, Stanley, and Mike. The new images also tease the looming presence of Bill Skarsgård’s Pennywise The Dancing Clown, who will torment the Losers Club.
We’re also given a look behind-the-scenes, with a handful of different shots of Muschietti directing the kids. Of course, the images also feature iconic moments from King’s novel, such as Georgie’s death and a few other significant scenes.
Check out the images below:
When children begin to disappear in the town of Derry, Maine, neighborhood kids band together to square off against Pennywise, an evil clown whose history of murder and violence dates back for centuries.
Muschietti’s adaptation of Stephen King’s novel will take place in the 80’s and will only tell half of the story. The novel features the characters as adults and children, and seemlessly switches from one time period to the other. For a film, this poses several challenges (one being runtime), so it’s not surprising to hear that the story has been split into two separate parts. If everything goes well and IT is successful, we will see the second part released in theatres in a few years time.
IT is directed by Andrés Muschietti and stars Bill Skarsgård, Finn Wolfhard, Sophia Lillis, Jaeden Lieberher, Jack Dylan Grazer, Wyatt Oleff, Chosen Jacobs, and Jeremy Ray Taylor.
