There's new terrifying details about the IT film
We all float down here.
It's arguable that the new version of Stephen King's beloved novel IT is the most anticipated film of the summer. Hell, the new trailer smashed records and audiences are patiently waiting for even more footage.
Well, the wait is nearly over because a new trailer was unveiled at ScareDiego festival and it has been described as 'terrifying' and 'intense'.
Entertainment Weekly were on hand to provide a brief description of the memorable moments which include IT waving a hand at The Losers Club, but it’s not his own hand.
It’s a child’s hand, ripped off at the elbow which Pennywise has been nibbling on.
We also get to see more footage of Georgie Denbrough, Bill’s little brother, as he 'floats down here' with Pennywise before the demonic clown actually speaks for the first time.

In Stephen King’s novel, IT manifested itself in the form of a homeless leper, a werewolf and even the shark from Jaws. The director of the remake, Andy Muschietti, has been speaking with Variety about the new terrifying incarnations that IT will take in the upcoming film.
"The story is the same, but there are changes in the things the kids are scared of. In the book they’re children in the ’50s, so the incarnations of the monsters are mainly from movies, so it’s Wolf Man, the Mummy, Frankenstein, Dracula.”I had a different approach. I wanted to bring out deeper fears, based not only on movie monsters but on childhood traumas," he said.
We're also told that things are moving along nicely regarding IT: Part Two. “We are doing that. We’ll probably have a script for the second part in January. Ideally, we would start prep in March. Part one is only about the kids. Part two is about these characters 30 years later as adults, with flashbacks to 1989 when they were kids.”
We can't wait to see the new trailer as the premier date of September 8 draws closer.
