A new trailer for the upcoming It movie has dropped during the MTV Movie Awards and it promises a film true to the pages of the Stephen King novel and the 1990 T.V. movies. Check it out:
Don’t turn off the lights during this brand new clip from IT Movie exclusively from the #MTVAwards, airing right now!

The post calls it a “clip”, but I’ll go out on a limb and call it a trailer because it has plenty of new footage and lays down, essentially, what the film is about. There’s a whole snippet of a clip toward the end which finds The Losers Club scavenging down the river where an insidious-looking balloon floats by.
This trailer/clip sells the film to me. It’s a promise that the film is going to be about childhood, which is what, I think, It has always been about.
Directed by Andrés Muschietti, It hits Philippine theaters September 7.
