While we’re disappointed we won’t get it in our hands in time for Christmas, at least we won’t have to wait much longer, as we finally have a release date for this year’s mega-hit IT, directed by Andy Muschietti and based on the bestselling novel by Stephen King. Mark your calendars, horror fans, because January 9th is the day!
We’re also being told (via Bloody Digusting) about the extras collectors can look forward to. They include:
Pennywise Lives!– Discover how Bill Skarsgård prepared to portray the primordial creature known as Pennywise the Dancing Clown;
The Losers’ Club– Get up close and personal with the teenage stars of “IT” as they bond together during the production;
Author of Fear– Stephen King reveals the roots of his best-selling novel, the nature of childhood fear and how he created his most famous monster, Pennywise; and
Deleted Scenes – Eleven deleted or extended scenes from the film.
Whether the deleted scenes will include the already-infamous baby-eating scene remains to be seen!
