Get a new look at Pennywise from the upcoming It remake

12.23.2016

It Pennywise Bill Skarsgard

Update: The studio has asked us to remove the image, so feel free to bask in the creepiness of the banner above instead!

In a small town in Maine, seven children known as The Losers Club come face to face with life problems, bullies and a monster that takes the shape of a clown called Pennywise. Director Andres Muschietti (MAMA) is bringing this remake to theaters in September of next year, but you can get a new look of Bill Skarsgard's Pennywise below!

Image Removed At Request of Studio

Well, he looks like a clown! I'd say as far as clowns go, they all pretty much look the same. What's really going to sell this character is the performance and in that regard, Skarsgard is definitely fighting an uphill battle. I'm still a little bummed that True Detective's Cary Fukunaga didn't end up helming this bad boy, but I'll give Muschietti the benefit of the doubt.

IT is scheduled to hit theaters on September 8, 2017.

The More I Stare, The More I Like It.

I wasn't so sure at first but the more I stare at it the more I see the giant spider lurking underneath...

Fukunaga's clown concept

Interestingly enough, this design of Pennywise was already present in Fukunaga's script, which is still the basis for the film. Check it out:

EYES PEER BACK AT HIM -- from THE GREASY WHITE FACE OF A CLOWN. Not Bozo, or Ronald McDonald, but something more old world, freakish, like that of a 19th-century acrobat -- bald, lithe, almost child-like. Meet PENNYWISE aka BOB GRAY.
George recoils back, shocked by Pennywise’s presence. A VOICE, a perfectly pleasant and reasonable voice, rises

PENNYWISE (O.C.) Hello, Georgie.

Way too stylized

I don't get the edges of the mouth rising up past the eyes. It's like something a hip makeup artist would come up with for incorporating clowns into cirque du soleil. They should ha move just played it straight and made the look as generic and innocuous as possible. Clowns are creepy BECAUSE they're trying to look friendly and approachable. That's why the whole idea of the monstrous clown face is dumb, and this is definitely leaning more in that direction. You can tell just by his posture and

If that's how they're having him play it, they're missing the entire point of Pennywise as a lure

The thing is, Pennywise is a sinister creeper of a clown in the book. A ghostly image. Monstrous face most of the time. Only in the opening chapter with Georgie is he really friendly looking and sounding. So if you want to be somewhat faithful to the character, you have to show that aspect. The plan for this adaptation is to use the two-faced clown from the book. Unlike the Tim Curry version where he constantly has a scary voice, even when talking to Georgie. The still here is from later in the

I do agree with you somewhat, but I like the look of him. I do hope he is playful, at least at first to lure the children in then he turns 180 and is a total creeper! Tim Curry was a master at this, and I hope this actor can channel the same character that Curry did.
