New IT Movie Footage Reveals Best Preview of Bill Skarsgard’s Pennywise

Just last week, we were given a brand new trailer for the upcoming movie adaptation of Stephen King’s It.

It featured a somewhat better look at Bill Skarsgard’s performance as Pennywise The Clown, but still left out quite a bit of it.

Well, now, a new Latin TV spot has been released – and it definitely features the best overall look at the character.

We also get to hear quite a bit of his voice:

It’s no surprise that it comes off as generally unsettling, as the film has already been called one of the five most scariest films ever – according to Joe Hill:

“Andres’ adaptation of IT is one of the 5 scariest films ever made,” Hill exclaimed. “It’s tremendously humane. You love the characters in it. But it is just relentlessly terrifying.”

He continued:

“Only Jaws, The Exorcist, John Carpenter’s The Thing and Let the Right One In are scarier. It’s that good. It’s that brilliant.”

It was also reported that Skarsgard ‘traumatized’ the young child actors on the set of the film:

“It’s a really weird thing to go, ‘If I succeed at doing what I’m trying to do with this character, I’ll traumatize kids.’ On set, I wasn’t very friendly or goofy. I tried to maintain some sort of weirdness about the character, at least when I was in all the makeup. At one point, they set up this entire scene, and these kids come in, and none of them have seen me yet. Their parents have brought them in, these little extras, right? And then I come out as Pennywise, and these kids—young, normal kids—I saw the reaction that they had.”

 He continued:

“Some of them were really intrigued, but some couldn’t look at me, and some were shaking. This one kid started crying. He started to cry and the director yelled, “Action!” And when they say “action,” I am completely in character. So some of these kids got terrified and started to cry in the middle of the take, and then I realized, ‘Holy shit. What am I doing? What is this? This is horrible.”

IT hits theaters September 8th.
