I was not a fan of the first IT trailer. I thought it was just a very generic horror trailer and it just used the same generic trope and just utilizes the same things that you see in horror trailer with the jump scares and typical music.Also to be transparent I was angry from the beginning due to the fact that Cary Fukunaga wasn’t directing the film and wasn’t allowed to make the film he wanted to make. So I was mad from the beginning and I was very skeptical just to be transparent. But man I’m fully on board with this film now.
Today Warner Brothers have released the second trailer for their upcoming adaptation of Stephen King’s It. Andrés Muschietti takes on the second attempt at the novel with a script written by Chase Palmer, Cary Fukunaga, and Gary Dauberman. The film follows this group of kids known as the Losers Club. They suddenly notice a disappearance in their town of Derry, Maine. They are forced to face their greatest fears and one of them being Pennywise. The clown that has been causing havoc which dates back to centuries.
This is just batshit crazy is the best possible way. It really does seem that Andrés Muschietti has a terrific grasp on how to balance It the novel along with being respectful and utilizing the book in the best way possible. You see the haunting imagery of Georgie and then he adds to the creepiness by saying you will float too which plays in the background of the trailer in such a demonic way. You see that it’s basically these kids against the entire town because nobody believes that Pennywise is there which add a very cool suspense element to the film. Also, this trailer showcases the best imagery by far with the little girl floating in the air, the blood splattering all over the place around the person’s head. And to top it all off the room full of clowns and bang you see Pennywise jump out.
It comes out on September 8th and it stars Bill Skarsgaard, Jaeden Lieberher, Jack Dylan Grazer, Sophia Lillis, Wyatt Oleff, Finn Wolfhard, Owen Teague and Chosen Jacobs.
