Oh. Em. Gee.
The first trailer for the remake of Stephen King’s It is finally out, and I’ve already watched it about 20 times. Exaggeration? You’d think so, but no. I’m freaking obsessed with this thing, and I’ve only seen 2+ minutes of footage. If you haven’t seen it yet (oh, you weren’t constantly refreshing your browser this morning? Weird…), check out the link below:
DID YOU LOVE IT??!?!! (Whoa. Settle. Stop screaming.) Did you love it? Because I did.
I’ve been a little worried about this one because the original made-for-tv version of Stephen King’s It holds a very special place in my heart. As you can see, I’ve mentioned it several times on different posts like here and here. I even gave it lucky #13 on the list of my favorite scary movies. But after seeing the trailer, I am SO EXCITED!
Seriously. I’ve got to stop screaming.
So to begin the trailer, we’ve got the iconic scene of Georgie’s death. Not the whole thing. Just a taste (forgive the wording). And as is tradition, Pennywise, played by Bill Skarsgard, pops up in the drain. Skarsgard looks pretty cool and creepy but doesn’t get to talk yet. I’m really interested in hearing his voice because I just don’t know what direction they’ve taken with it. Is it gruff like Tim Curry’s Pennywise, or is it creepy clown high pitched? We just don’t know.
Then we have a glimpse into the lives of the members of the Loser’s Club. I’m so happy to see them all in action. That scene where they’re looking at a family photo slideshow was freaking awesome. So creepy. Those things aren’t usually very entertaining, so Pennywise just brought a little excitement.
I also was pleased to see the scene with Beth in the bathroom because it looks like they definitely upped the gore factor in this one. Very pleased with that.
Oh, I could go on and on and on, but I’ll stop here. We’ve got a little over 5 months until this movie comes out on September 8, so I’m sure we’ll have much more to look at before then. Until then, keep an eye on the blog for updates, and let me know what you’re most excited about in the comments.
