We’re only a week away from the release of the new adaptation of IT, and the teasers, trailers, and clips are popping up across the web.
This week, three new clips from IT were released, expanding on scenes we’ve seen in the trailers. The first clip explores Derry, Maine's supposed curse and the Losers Club’s greatest fears.
Clip two features Pennywise, with much more dialogue than we’d previously heard from the nightmare-inducing character. Pennywise cajoles little Georgie into taking back his paper boat, despite Georgie's understandable uncertainty in accepting the invite of a creepy clown standing inside a storm sewer.
The final clip shows some of the Losers Club venturing into the sewers, where they discover the shoe of Betty Ripsom. Betty Ripsom hasn’t been listed as a character on the IMDB page for IT, although fans of the novel will recognize her name. This is a great sign for adaptation purists—hopefully, IT will remain faithful to its material.
Additionally, a video interview with Stephen King has surfaced, in which the author of the IT novel praises the upcoming movie adaptation. Considering King has no problem badmouthing—what he views as—unsatisfactory adaptations of his work, this can only be a good sign for the film.
You can check out his interview below.
IT will be released in theaters on September 8th, 2017. We’ll be rewatching the clips and trailers until then.
