Before we begin, we don’t think anyone can top Tim Curry’s iconic – and timeless – take on Pennywise the clown; the TV mini-series may not have aged week, but he will always dwell in the darkest recesses of our minds and dreams.
But, with that said, we are impressed with these new images of Bill Skarsgard as the creepy villain from the new adaptation of Stephen King’s IT.
The news movie is directed by Mam’s Andrés Muschietti who said of the nightmare fuel clown: “Pennywise shows up, he’s front and centre, and he does his show. He has an act. So it’s weird all the time, and every little thing implies a further threat.”
We’re looking forward to another take on an Iconic King creation… but we still doubt he can top Curry. Just sayin’.
It stars Bill Skarsgard, Finn Wolfhard, Jack Dylan Grazer, Wyatt Oleff, Chosen Jacobs, Jeremy Ray Taylor and Jaden Lieberher, is directed by Andrés Muschietti and arrives to haunt your dreams on Sept 8th, 2017.
