IT Trailer Has Real Clowns Very Angry and Audiences Terrified
As if all the viral clown news wasn’t enough to put the profession in a bad light, the first trailer for Stephen King’s IT adaptation arrived last month.
It was a gigantic hit with fans, as it broke the 24 hour trailer view record. But it also didn’t set well with those who spent thousands of dollars attending clown college. And now some clowns are calling foul on the footage, and the movie itself.
New Line Cinema’s horror thriller “IT,” directed by Andrés Muschietti (“Mama”), is based on the hugely popular Stephen King novel of the same name, which has been terrifying readers for decades.
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.
A presentation of New Line Cinema, “IT” will be released worldwide beginning September 8, 2017, by Warner Bros. Pictures.
