If You Can Make It Through This Trailer, You're Still Not Ready for It

Look, the teaser for It was fucking terrifying. The big-screen adaptation of Stephen King's masterpiece seemed to have all of the scares of the original TV miniseries from 1990, only it promised a super-charged, R-rated spin to it. And that damn clown is still scary as hell.
But if the first teaser didn't do it for you, this first official trailer for It may definitely make you jump in your seat. It's a more fully formed look at the film—and at the new Pennywise, played this time by Bill Skarsgård. We see the classic scene of little Georgie Denbrough's first encounter with the clown who embodies the pure evil that looms over the town of Derry, Maine. But we also see Pennywise harass the members of the Losers Club, the rag-tag group of kids who band together to save their town from the ultimate horror.
It hits theatres on September 8 (September 7 in Singapore). That gives you plenty of time to prepare for your nightmares after seeing it.
