Worth The Hype: A ’90s Kid’s Reaction To Steven King’s ‘IT’ Remake

I’m a ’90s kid. Steven King’s It miniseries in the ’90s was part of my childhood, and one of the first flicks I ever saw. When I heard they were remaking this horror classic I was pretty stoked.

After this trailer, I can’t wait for September:

The entirety of the IT story will be split into two movies, which take place in a Derry, Maine. Part one begins in 1958, with the mysterious disappearances and murders of children in Derry. A group of kids, known as “The Losers Club” find themselves going up against the evil entity known as Pennywise the clown, who’s been stealing and murdering children for hundreds of years. The second would take place in 1985, and bring these characters back together as adults. When the disappearances in Derry begin again, the “Losers Club” must stop Pennywise once and for all. Not much else has been released on the storyline yet, however, Bill Skarsgård, who plays Pennywise the Clown, promises the movies will feature a fresh new take on Steven King’s beloved horror .

According to director Dan Lin, IT will have an “R” rating. Here’s what Lin had to say about his cast and the movie:

The kids are amazing. You very much get a “Stand by Me” vibe as far as their camaraderie and the way they joke with each other and that they really care for each other. They do have a scary clown that’s taken over the town of Derry, so it’s going to be rated R.

Check out the poster below! New Line currently has this set to release September 8, 2017.
