Stephen King's "IT," the motion picture, is due to be released in September. In the meantime, the film's second trailer has just hit the airwaves. The film is based on King's 1986 best-selling novel featuring an evil clown, Pennywise. Additionally, a popular 1990 television miniseries was also based on King's horror story and featured Tim Curry's portrayal of the evil Pennywise. Tim Curry is an English actor known for his starring role in "The Rocky Horror Picture Show."

Today Pennywise is back, portrayed by actor Bill Skarsgård and some say the clown is scarier than before. Promos and the new trailer for the film were released on Thursday.

Last Wednesday, the film's Twitter feed Tweeted a new video featuring Pennywise. The movie's official press release describes the film this way: “When children begin to disappear in the town of Derry, Maine, neighborhood kids band together to square off against Pennywise, an evil clown whose history of murder and violence dates back for centuries.”

Bill Skarsgård promises to deliver a unique portrayal of Pennywise

The film's full title is "It: Part 1 - The Losers" and is being produced by New Line Cinema. The film is due out this September and is the first part of a two-part story. "It: Part 1 - The Losers" tells the story of seven children in Derry, Maine, who are terrified by Pennywise, a horrific clown.

As the movie unfolds, the children are forced to face not just Pennywise but also their deep dark personal demons as well.

Bill Skarsgård's portrayal of, the other-worldly evil element that awakens every third decade promises to be unique. Skarsgård stated it was a 'really weird thing' to play a role that will traumatize kids.

Nonetheless, that is what he plans to do as best he can. In other interviews, Skarsgård reflected on his portrayal being compared Tim Curry's acclaimed portrayal in the 1990 television series.

In short, he does not plan to repeat Curry's performance. Skarsgård added that even though Curry was great as Pennywise, he will bring his distinctive twist to the character.

He goes on to explain that it is important to bring out something original in Pennywise. The character is beyond evil, not human, and not even a clown, Skarsgård explains. Instead Pennywise is the manifestation of the human idea of evil. Indicating this could make the Pennywise character even more dangerous to the human psyche.

Moreover, this idea could explain the novel's bestselling rank, the cult following of the 1990 miniseries, the massive appeal, and the anticipation this year's film is generating. "It: Part 1 - The Losers" is scheduled to be released on September 8, 2017. Watch the trailer at your own risk.
