Clowns are creepy bastards… there’s always something about them that your basic human instinct wants to run screaming from. The 1990 miniseries It, based on Stephen King’s novel, played up to this primal fear wonderfully, with Tim Curry’s depiction of Pennywise The Dancing Clown out to murder children in a small Maine town lodging itself in a generation’s nightmares. Now it’s getting the big screen treatment.
Watch the trailer below.
This film has been in development since 2009, parts of it filmed IN TORONTO, and is the first film in what looks set to be a series of two movies, entitled It: Part One – The Loser’s Club. It is set to be released September 8th 2017.
As for the creepy clown phase being part of the movie’s promotion? New Line Cinema have denied any connection.
