Stephen King’s IT teaser trailer and poster released
New Line Cinema have released the first teaser trailer for their upcoming adaptation of Stephen King’s terrifying horror tale IT. The adaptation is expected to be a two part film, the first focusing on The Losers’ Club as kids and will be set in the town of Derry in the 1980’s. The story will follow the kids journey as they fight to defeat a malevolent entity. The second film will follow the same characters as adults returning to their hometown to face off against evil once again.
The official film synopsis: 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.
The original made for tv film will admittedly be difficult top, as for many it remains one of the most terrifying horror films of all time. However the footage offered in the teaser below is genuinely creepy and looks to be a promising adaptation.
