Entertainment Weekly are pretty much owning every news article we’ve been posting on the site over the past couple of days. They continue their reign with a bunch of new images and artwork from the upcoming adaptation of Stephen King’s novel It, which is being released in two parts – the first one hitting cinemas later this year.
With the new photos, the outlet added that a key plot point seems to have been changed for the new version…
The film version of Stephen King’s It skews the notorious opening scene in a way that changes the stakes significantly for one of the lead characters — Bill Denbrough (Midnight Special’s Jaeden Lieberher) As part of EW’s Comic-Con double issue, we present a series of concept images from the Sept. 8 horror movie that explores the question: Does Georgie live?
Those who’ve read the 1986 novel remember the disturbing prologue, teased on the book’s cover, in which Bill’s little brother Georgie is chasing a paper boat down a storm-swollen street when he is murdered in his yellow rain slicker by the creature calling itself Pennywise the Clown. In the book, poor Georgie is found with his arm missing.
In the new film from director Andrés Muschietti (2013’s Mama) … he’s not found at all.
Interesting. Check out the new images below, and look out for the film in cinemas from September 8th, 2017.
