After 27 years of slumber, Pennywise is coming—soon. Andrés Muschietti’s IT, featuring Bill Skarsgård as the infamous & evil dancing clown hits US theaters on September 8th, and anticipation is nearing a fever pitch. This morning, Entertainment Weekly dropped some super juicy pics of The Losers Club descending into the Derry’s sewers on a mission to confront the grease-painted fiend from another dimension. Have a look-see.
First, a couple new pics:

Next, check out some killer concept art! Per EW: “This sequence of concept art reveals the descent. In the first frame, we see Bill with his friend Bev Marsh (Sophia Lillis), but in the finished film he’s with different buddies. ‘He actually comes in with some of the Losers. Richie and Eddie. And they meet Ben in that scene,’ the director says.”
The images also come with additional plot details; again, per EW:
“Those who’ve read the 1986 novel remember the disturbing prologue, teased on the book’s cover, in which Bill’s little brother Georgie is chasing a paper boat down a storm-swollen street when he is murdered in his yellow rain slicker by the creature calling itself Pennywise the Clown. In the book, poor Georgie is found with his arm missing,” the site notes. “In the new film, he’s not found at all. That means his brother is leading his fellow “Losers” not just on a mission of revenge against the shapeshifting evil that lives beneath their town. He’s on a quest to find his little brother – alive or dead – which means venturing into the subterranean lair of the nameless creature they call It.”
Last Week, we brought you a pic of Pennywise on the cover of the French Media magazine Mad Movies; today, we’re seeing a beautiful new picture from inside the magazine. It’s nothing we haven’t seen before, but it’s a thing of brilliance to behold.
Official Synopsis: When children begin to disappear in the town of Derry, Maine, neighborhood kids band together to square off against Pennywise (Bill Skarsgård), an evil clown whose history of murder and violence dates back for centuries.
In addition to Skarsgård, IT stars Jaeden Lieberher, Jeremy Ray Taylor, Sophia Lillis, Finn Wolfhard (Stranger Things), Wyatt Oleff, Chosen Jacobs, Jack Dylan Grazer, and Nicholas Hamilton. Look for IT to arrive in US Theaters on September 8th.
