Stephen King's It trailer: Pennywise the clown is back, as is your worst nightmare

Clowns are funny, aren't they? At least, that is what they are supposed to be. But what happens when what's meant to make you laugh transforms instead into your worst nightmare?

The upcoming film, It, based on Stephen King's 1986 best-selling horror novel of the same name, does just that. King's novel was previously made into a TV mini-series in 1990. The latest film version, directed by Andrés Muschietti will be released in two parts; the first one being slated for an 8 September release, reports The Guardian.

The first trailer was released on 27 July by Warner Bros Pictures on YouTube and it has already reached a staggering 4.3 million views.

The trailer sets the story around the little town of Derry, Maine, where — suddenly — children begin to disappear. Pennywise the clown, in King's novel too, preyed on young kids by plaguing them with their worst fears and weaknesses. The film version isn't too different.

It stars Finn Wolfhard, Jeremy Ray Taylor, Wyatt Oleff, Jaeden Lieberher and Bill Skarsgård, who takes on the titular role of the malevolent clown. The film's screenplay adaptation is by Chase Palmer and Cary Fukunaga and Gary Dauberman.

Here's the trailer:
