Coulrophobia Warning - First IT Trailer & Poster

Horror's most iconic clown is back!

Director AndrĂ©s Muschietti (Mama) brings his adaptation of Stephen King's It to cinemas on September 8th.

The unenviable task of donning the clown makeup previously worn by Tim Curry for a 1990 TV mini-series falls to actor Bill Skarsgard in the role of the villainous Pennywise. Curry's performance is likely the reason so many people of a certain generation claim to suffer from coulrophobia, the fear of clowns.

Will this new version refuel those nightmares? Take a look at this first trailer and let us know in the comments if it freaks you out.

The official synopsis reads:

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 UK and US trailer have both been released. Both trailers are identical except for a curiously subtle difference in the music.
