It Trailer for 2017 Stephen King Adaptation

Andrés Muschietti‘s It (2017) teaser trailer stars Bill Skarsgård, Finn Wolfhard, Javier Botet, Nicholas Hamilton, and Megan Charpentier. It‘s plot synopsis: based on the novel by Stephen King, “When children begin to disappear in the town of Derry, Maine, a group of young kids are faced with their biggest fears when they square off against an evil clown named Pennywise, whose history of murder and violence dates back for centuries.”

It looks like a good-looking (cinematography) and atmospheric horror film.

From the material in the trailer, Gary Dauberman, Chase Palmer, and Cary Joji Fukunaga really took their adaptation of one of Stephen King’s famous book seriously. They really wanted to get it right and it shows.

When I saw that Cary Joji Fukunaga was apart of the writing staff, I became far more interested in this film. Fukunaga’s work was excellent on the first season of True Detective and I am happy that his attention to detail is being brought to bear on this Stephen King story.

Coming off of Stranger Things‘ first season, it was wise to place front and center as much of that TV show’s look and feel as possible. The teaser trailer for It does with earnestly but there is a dread, disturbing vibe with It that Stranger Things never conjured (though it certainly had its moments).

The previous It film adaptation is a classic horror film, particularly because of the use of a clown as an antagonist. Unlike the previous incarnation, this version seems to be sticking with the child versions of the characters and not their adult incarnations as well (I have not read the book yet). This might, however, be perceptual. This is only the teaser trailer. Perhaps the full trailer will feature the adult character incarnation as well.

It also stars Jaeden Lieberher, Sophia Lillis, Steven Williams, Owen Teague, Wyatt Oleff, Jeremy Ray Taylor, Jack Dylan Grazer, Stephen Bogaert, Ari Cohen, and Chosen Jacobs.
