Stephen King’s IT set to terrify new generation as first trailer appears

The upcoming new adaptation of Stephen King’s classic story IT, a story which for many will be associated with Tim Curry’s turn as Pennywise in the miniseries from 1990, has had a rather problematic history to date. Originally set to be directed by acclaimed Beasts of No Nation and True Detective director Cary Fukunaga, with a script by Fukunaga and Chase Palmer, Fukunaga walked away due to what is generally referred to as ‘creative differences’.

After getting a new director, Andrés Muschietti, and a new script from Gary Dauberman (with Fukunaga and Palmer getting a credit) the first trailer for the new film, which is set to be split into two parts, is here and introduces a new generation to The Losers Club and the horror lurking in the heart of Derry, Maine.

Whether this new take on Stephen King’s classic story will be a generic horror film in 2 parts or something which hopefully has more depth remains to be seen.
