We need more Pennywise. IT is a novel that has one of the most memorable villains in the shapeshifting Pennywise, and as fans of the book, we really want to see as much of Pennywise as we possibly can. Sure, that very idea goes against everything most great horror films do, but what can we say? We live in an era of instant gratification, and any bit of extra footage that we can get will go a long way in convincing me that this version of the character.
So far in the trailers, we got a couple lines here and there, and a couple of extended looks, but we have still to see much of the clown in motion. In this new clip from a Latin American TV spot, we get to see a little bit more of the famed supernatural baddie. It may seem like small stuff, but seeing his face morph from a dead stare to a smile is truly the stuff of nightmares, and yet another indication that they’re doing this one right.
The official synopsis for IT is below:
“When children begin to disappear in the town of Derry, Maine, a group of young kids are faced with their biggest fears when they square off against an evil clown named Pennywise, whose history of murder and violence dates back for centuries.
“IT stars Bill Skarsgård (Allegiant, TV’s Hemlock Grove) as the story’s central villain, Pennywise. An ensemble of young actors also star in the film, including Jaeden Lieberher (Midnight Special), Jeremy Ray Taylor (Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip), Sophia Lillis (37), Finn Wolfhard (TV’s Stranger Things), Wyatt Oleff (Guardians of the Galaxy), Chosen Jacobs (upcoming Cops and Robbers), Jack Dylan Grazer (Tales of Halloween) and Nicholas Hamilton (Captain Fantastic).
“Muschietti is directing IT from a screenplay adapted by Chase Palmer & Cary Fukunaga and Gary Dauberman. Dan Lin, Roy Lee, Seth Grahame-Smith, David Katzenberg and Barbara Muschietti are producing, with Marty P. Ewing, Doug Davison and Jon Silk serving as executive producers.”
