Just in time for Halloween, ‘It’ will bring the chills in more ways than one. ‘It’ could also be the biggest movie of the fall season and the box office could use the jolt, as very few releases have been trickling out the past few weeks. Originating as a novel by Stephen King, ‘It’ was adapted as a TV miniseries in 1990. Both have scared their fair share of fans over the years and now those long-time fans can experience the tale in a brand new way, updated (to the ’80s, instead of the ’60s as in the original) with a higher feature film budget.
A group of young kids face their biggest fears when they seek answers to the disappearance of children in their hometown of Derry, Maine. They square off against an evil clown named Pennywise, whose history of murder and violence dates back for centuries.
Bill Skarsgård stars as the clown embodiment of It, also known as Pennywise. The seven kids that ultimately find themselves forced to confront this entity of evil are played by Jaeden Lieberher (Bill Denbrough, the leader of the Losers Club, his younger brother Georgie’s disappearance is what sets everything in motion), Jeremy Ray Taylor (Ben “Haystack” Hanscom, the chubby kid), Sophia Lillis (Beverly Marsh, the girl), ‘Stranger Things” Finn Wolfhard (Richie Tozier, nicknamed Trashmouth, the comic relief), Jack Dylan Grazer (Eddie Kaspbrak, the frail hypochondriac), Chosen Jacobs (Mike Hanlon, the… black one, also the only one who doesn’t leave Derry, Maine as an adult) and Wyatt Oleff (Stan Uris, the Jewish one, also the fastidious and most grounded one). Jackson Robert Scott appears as Bill’s younger brother Georgie, while Nicholas Hamilton plays their bully Henry Bowers.
