Entertainment sites were abuzz in the past 48 hours over the first official poster for IT..
The image features Georgie in his yellow rain coat.. a clown in the shadows handing him a balloon.. the picture is coupled with a Chiller-ish font saying ‘It.’
Besides the font (in my opinion) the picture on the poster works .. it shows the foreboding terror that the idea of Pennywise the dancing clown consists of. Seeing the darkness is like seeing a mystery.. knowing the fate of poor Georgie is even more awful as much as terrifying … the whole thing is tragic. It’s horrific. It’s deeply scary.. and it has a red balloon for its own amusement and not yours…
In theaters September 8, 2017, the film is set “in a small town in Maine, where seven children known as The Losers’ Club come face to face with life problems, bullies, and a monster that takes the shape of a clown called Pennywise..
Bill Skarsgard stars as Pennywise, the sewer-dwelling monster.
