“When you’re a kid you think that you’ll always be protected and cared for. But when you’re alone as a kid the monster sees you as weaker. You don’t even know that they’re getting closer until it’s too late.” ‘It’ is based on the hugely popular Stephen King novel of the same name, which has been terrifying readers for decades. When children begin to disappear in the small town of Derry, Maine, a group of young kids are faced with their biggest fears when they square off against an evil clown named Pennywise, whose history of murder and violence dates back for centuries. “Derry is not like any other town I’ve ever been in before people disappear six times the national average. And that’s just grownups kids are worse, way, way worse.”
“I saw something. There was this…” “Clown, yeah I saw him too.” The local kids are disappearing one by one, leaving behind torn body parts and remains. In a place known as ‘The Barrens’, the group of kids are united by their horrifying and strange encounters with a clown called Pennywise. “Look it’s all connected by the sewers. That’s where it lives. What happened?”
What are you afraid of? “Bill if you come with me you’ll float too.” ‘It’ is directed by Andrés Muschietti from a screenplay adapted by Chase Palmer, Cary Fukunaga and Gary Dauberman. The film stars Bill Skarsgård as the story’s central villain, Pennywise. An ensemble of young actors also star in the film, including Jaeden Lieberher, Jeremy Ray Taylor, Sophia Lillis, Finn Wolfhard, Wyatt Oleff, Chosen Jacobs, Jack Dylan Grazer and Nicholas Hamilton.
Dan Lin, Roy Lee, Seth Grahame-Smith, David Katzenberg and Barbara Muschietti are producing, with Marty P. Ewing, Doug Davison and Jon Silk serving as executive producers. ‘It’ has a theater release date of September 8, 2017.
Hummm, now a new generation of kids (as well as adults) can be terrified. What do you think?
