It’s been exactly 27 years since we last saw the first adaptation of Stephen King’s seminal 1986 novel “It.” The new cinematic remake already has fans of the horror classic bursting with excitement. Earlier this week, we got a first look at the teaser trailer and poster of Andrés Muschietti’s new adaptation. Now, a video has surfaced comparing the 2017 film to Tommy Lee Wallace’s 1990 miniseries, and it’s simply brilliant.
“It” is set in the fictional town of Derry, Maine, where seven kids, known as “The Losers Club,” will have to overcome life problems, including bullying from other kids. The clique also faces the haunting of a monster that takes the shape of an evil clown named Pennywise (played by Swedish actor Bill Skarsgård). Thirty years later, they reunite to stop the clown once and for all. The film stars “Stranger Things” actor Finn Wolfhard as a young Richie Tozier.
“It” is a two-part film series. Part one opens in theaters September 8. Watch the video below, via MoviePilot.
