A monster that looks like a clown is terrorizing the small town of Derry in this teaser trailer for It. After many years of development hell the supernatural horror is finally coming to the big screen.
“In a small town of Derry, Maine, seven children come face to face with life problems, bullies and a monster that takes the shape of a clown called Pennywise.”
Never seen the 1990 It miniseries and never read the Stephen King novel of the same name, so I’m coming at this from the outside, no It nostalgia for me. I think the trailer looks good, I like the feel, the small town and the kids going up against this monster. It kind of makes me want to watch the 1990 miniseries, even though I’m sure it’s very dated by now. Either way I want to see more of It so I guess this trailer did its job.
It was directed by Andres Muschietti and the screenplay was written by Gary Dauberman, Chase Palmer and Cary Joji Fukunaga. The latter, who helmed season one of True Detective, was at one point going to direct It, but that fell through almost two years ago when Fukunaga left the project citing creative differences.
It opens in the US on September 8th.
