With only two months to go before the film’s release, feature stories on the upcoming film adaptation of Stephen King’s “IT” have started to appear in long lead magazines.
Today, the cover art for the newest edition of Mad Movies along with a page from an upcoming Total Film issue have offered two new and quite different portrait shots of Bill Skarsgard in full make-up as Pennywise the Clown.
Andres Muschetti helms the new take on the horror novel about a child-eating, shape-shifting monster that haunts the town of Derry, Maine and the group of outcast kids who unite to stop it.
Warners has limited good quality shots of the clown character in the few trailers and photos released to date – these shots offer the most detailed glimpse to date. Another trailer for the film is expected sometime this month.
“IT” opens in early September.
