In the fall of 1988, tragedy hits close to home for Bill Denbrough (Lieberher), leaving him plagued with grief. The following summer, the children of the small town of Derry, Maine, start to go missing without a trace. Both events appear to share the same culprit: an immortal, shapeshifting clown. Along with his bumbling band of fellow pre-teen outcasts – the self-proclaimed ‘Losers’ Club’ – Bill and buds must face their worst fears in a bid to bring down the evil entity for good.
In the story, 'It' returns to Derry to every 27-years. IT’s 2017 release will come 27-years after it was first adapted for screens in 1990. Spooky coincidence or mighty clever marketing? Either way, IT is quickly becoming one of the most anticipated movie events of this year. But just why should we all be floating down to the cinema on the 8th September?
