Pennywise It Bill Skarsgard Andy Muschietti Stephen King

Earlier this week, we got a look at the town of Derry in Andy Muschietti's remake of Stephen King's IT, but something much more important has floated up from the sewers: Pennywise himself. The villainous clown that haunts the town, Pennywise was originally played by Tim Curry, but will be portrayed by Bill Skarsgard this time around.

I was worried he might be a little too young to play the part properly, but Entertainment Weekly has released this first look at his new design, and his youth doesn't seem so alarming at all. Personally, I feel like the makeup is a little too precise, but it's a decently creepy look. Check it out for yourself below!

Seven children known as The Losers Club who come face to face with life problems, bullies and a monster that takes the shape of a clown called Pennywise. 

The cast of kids in Pennywise's sights includes Jaeden Lieberher, Finn Wolfhard, Jack Dylan Grazer, Wyatt Oleff, Chosen Jacobs and Jeremy Ray Taylor. Their bullies will be played by Owen Teague and Nicholas Hamilton. Javier Botet will fill an as-yet unspecified role.

The plan is for the first movie to focus on Pennywise tormenting the characters listed above as children, with the second movie seeing them face off with "It" again as adults.

IT part one is set to be released into theatres on September 8, 2017, one year and two days after filming wraps.

Extra Tidbit: What do you think of this new character design?

original was rated pg

i made this comment below and someone called me out on it but they're wrong. its true it was a mini series on abc in the 90s and it says non rated on imdb but when you went to rent it at blockbuster and on the back of the vhs box for those old enough to remember it was rated pg because then they had to give it a rating once it came to video.

Okay, gotcha. I stand corrected. I was pretty much agreeing it couldn't have been a strong rating since they aired it on network tv in prime time, but wasn't thinking about later rentals.

It / Dark Tower Crossover

You guys think there is any chance of seeing Roland appear in It or Pennywise show up in Dark Tower? They are both filming at the same time, I can see this happening for sure.

Some people forget.....

.....the original was only rated PG. I'm really excited to see this movie so I hope they do a good job. Clowns are easy to make scary so that won't be the problem.

Not rated, it was a tv mini series. Came on regular time (8:00) like a "movie of the week," but over two days. I remember watching it when it came out. If it were to be rated though I think that would be about what it would be back then.

It looks okay but somehow it doesn't feel right.
