Stephen King's IT: Three new images showcase Pennywise and The Loser's Club

The new teaser trailer for STEPHEN KING'S IT will (hopefully) be hitting us in the next 2 days (!), but until then you can peep some three new images from the film right here!

The first features Bill Skarsgard's Pennywise with a red balloon obscuring his terrifying face, the second shows us a Loser's Club looking at some slides (as described in the SXSW teaser rundown), and finally something wholly new!

The third and final pic seems to show the Losers playing out the scene from the novel where they are attacked by the teenage werewolf inside the house on Neilbolt street!  

Too. F*cking. Cool. I was dying to know if that scene was going to be in this new adaptation!

Below you can not only peep the new images from the sooner to be released trailer (I hope), but you can also read some new bits of info on the film via director Andres Muschietti.

On IT being a coming-of-age tale:

“It happens in the book, this coming of age and kids facing their own mortality, which is something that in real life happens in a more progressive way and slowed down. There’s a passage (in It) that reads, ‘Being a kid is learning how to live and being an adult is learning how to die.’ There’s a bit of a metaphor of that and it just happens in a very brutal way, of course.”

Muschietti's vision for Pennywise is based on Bill's wondering if this monster is eating children because that’s what we’re told monsters do:

“It’s a tiny bit of information, but that sticks with you so much. Maybe it is real as long as children believe in it. And in a way, Pennywise’s character is motivated by survival. In order to be alive in the imagination of children, he has to keep killing.”

Muschietti promises Skarsgård’s Pennywise is more terrifying:

“It’s established that Pennywise takes the shape of your worst fear. He doesn’t have a steady behavior, he doesn’t expose how he thinks, and that’s what makes him really unpredictable.”

The next film will feature their grown-up selves coming to grips with the past as their old enemy resurfaces.

“It’s about remembering things that they have forgot. Getting back in touch with those memories is such an important part of the plot, that makes you think about what will happen 30 years later when Pennywise comes again.”

STEPHEN KING'S IT: PART I crawls out of the sewers September 8th.

Psst. 2 days...
