New Line Cinema premiered a new sneak peek at Andres Muschietti’s “IT” during the MTV Movie & TV Awards. Part trailer, but mostly consisting of a new clip with the kids bantering, there’s a welcome warm interaction here leading to chilling hints of the titular monster.
The first of a two-film adaptation of arguably Stephen King’s most iconic work of pure horror, the story follows seven children in Maine who come face to face with life problems, bullies and a shape shifting, child eating monster that most often takes the shape of a sinister clown named Pennywise (Bill Skarsgard).
Cary Fukunaha, Gary Dauberman and Chase Palmer penned the script for the film which stars “Stranger Things” alum Finn Wolfhard along with Wyatt Oleff, Nicholas Hamilton, Sophia Lillis, Jaeden Lieberher, Owen Teague, Jeremy Ray Taylor, Jack Dylan Grazer, and Chosen Jacobs.
“IT” is slated to open around much of the world on September 8th.
