The first trailer for the new adaptation of Stephen King’s horror novel ‘It‘ was released back in late March. It brought in more online views in a 24-hour period than any other movie in history.
The trailer featured a few jump scares, which had people jumping out of their office chairs. It wasn’t a perfect trailer, but it certainly did its job. After watching it, you were probably seeing that creepy a** clown every time you closed your eyes at night.
Well, just when you were starting to recover, the studio decided to release a second trailer. The trailer premiered during the MTV Movie Awards on Sunday night, and thankfully it was less terrifying than the first trailer.
This second look at the film focuses more on the children and their wild imaginations. You have more suspense in this trailer. It makes you feel like something terrible is about to happen without resorting to those unoriginal jump scares.
You can check out the official synopsis and the second trailer below. It’s scheduled to hit theaters September 8, 2017.
“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.”
