Stephen King’s ‘It Part 1: The Losers' Club’ Trailer Unnerves Audiences Worldwide [Video]

Stephen King’s It trailer can now back up the hype that has been associated with the project for over a year now. With all of the drama that went on behind the scenes with the departure of Cary Fukunaga and Will Poulter from the project, what has emerged for Stephen King’s It is now proving to be some of the most dreadful imagery that has ever been featured.

“Vintage horror fiction!”

For those who grew up on Stephen King and were a young kid when the ABC mini-series came out in 1990, then you know all too well the terror that is associated with the story and the film.

Stephen King’s It started a revolution in 1990 that carried over with audiences worldwide and further deepened many people’s fear of clowns. The Tim Curry portrayal of the clown Pennywise from Stephen King’s It was enough to have kids all over the country running for their lives, staying clear of public showers and never going into the wet barrens of a city’s sewer system, which took all the fun out of being a kid.

But a new vision of terror has been born with Bill Skarsgard portraying Pennywise in a trailer for Stephen King’s It, proving that a new generation of kids might just be scared to death of the same things, possibly even for more intense reasons with the advancements in CG technology over the past 27 years.

“You’ll float too!” the ghostly vision of little Georgie told his older brother, stuttering Bill, in the trailer for Stephen King’s It Part 1: The Losers’ Club.

What is especially unique about the trailer is that it started out the exact same way that the 1990 mini-series for Stephen King’s It started out, which was with sick brother Bill Denbrough helping little George Denbrough make a boat that will float in the storm water runoff on the streets of Derry, Maine.

“Atmospheric and Creepy”

The supporting action and plot of Stephen King’s It also unfolded with several key elements that were similar to the ABC mini-series. But there have been reports that the new film for Stephen King’s It will stay closer to the source material in the epic-sized novel.

Take a look below at the trailer for Stephen King’s It Part 1: The Losers’ Club to see if you will be hustling to the theater on September 8 this year, when it releases in the United States.
