FIRST LOOK: Here’s Bill Skarsgård in the full Pennywise costume from the new IT adaptation…

Man, if ever there was a winning equation for scares, it was Clowns + Stephen King + Tim Curry = nightmare fuel.

However, there’s a new Pennywise in town and he’s pretty terrifying too. we think you’ll agree…

The new version of Stephen King’s It, due for September 8th, 2017 will star Bill Skarsgård as the terrifying demonic clown under director Andy Muschietti.

The new image is a much darker look than the now classic Curry outfit, but it really makes him look like a creature of the shadows, hiding in sewers and waiting for unsuspecting children.

Can Skarsgård nail the same scares that Curry did in the TV miniseries? We reckon there’s a real good chance he can…

What do you all think?

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
