After what feels like an eternity of waiting, we’re finally getting our first real tastes of Stephen King’s It in the form of an official poster as well as a teaser for tomorrow’s trailer, which we got a sneak peek of at SXSW. The poster bears the tagline “You’ll float too” while the teaser talks about the Losers’ Club seeing a clown as well as infamous line, “We all float down here.” You can see both below.
Also, we’ve zoomed in on the balloon in the poster, which reveals a new look at Pennywise.
Jaeden Lieberher, Finn Wolfhard, Nicholas Hamilton, Jack Dylan Grazer, Wyatt Oleff, Chosen Jacobs, Jeremy Ray Taylor, and Sophia Lillis star with Bill Skarsgard, who portrays Pennywise. In addition, creature performer Javier Botet has signed on as The Leper, and Owen Teague plays Patrick Hocksetter, part of a group of bullies who torment The Losers’ Club.
It hits theaters on September 8th.
Andy Muschietti directs from a screenplay by Gary Dauberman and Chase Palmer. Dan Lin, Roy Lee, Seth Grahame-Smith, David Katzenberg, and Barbara Muschietti produce. The story will be spread across two films.
When children begin to disappear in the town of Derry, Maine, a group of young kids are faced with their biggest fears when they square off against an evil clown named Pennywise, whose history of murder and violence dates back for centuries.
