A new picture from the set of Stephen King’s IT has made its way online, and it’s rather amusing in how it tells two very different stories in one shot. The picture shows a monitor on which you can see Pennywise looking creepy. However, behind the monitor are a few of the actors from The Losers’ Club standing around, chatting, and eating some craft food, all behind the set of what appears to be the sewer system.
So, on one hand you’ve got a picture from the actual movie (if that scene makes the final cut), and on the other you’ve got behind-the-scenes gold. Man, I love movie magic!

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 appears 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.
The behind-the-scenes creative team includes director of photography Chung-Hoon Chung (Me and Earl and the Dying Girl), production designer Claude Paré (Rise of the Planet of the Apes), editor Jason Ballantine (The Great Gatsby), and costume designer Janie Bryant (“Mad Men”).
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.
