By now you’ve heard that Stephen King’s terrifying novel IT is getting the big screen treatment. The film’s new trailer lived up to the billing, and will have you giving the most bubbly of clowns the side eye. 

Pennywise is up to no good, but some kids in Derry, ME hope to do something about it.

When children begin to disappear in the town of Derry, Maine, a group of young kids are faced with their biggest fears when they square off against an evil clown named Pennywise, whose history of murder and violence dates back for centuries.

“IT” stars Bill Skarsgård (“Allegiant,” TV’s “Hemlock Grove”) as the story’s central villain, Pennywise. An ensemble of young actors also star in the film, including Jaeden Lieberher (“Midnight Special”), Jeremy Ray Taylor (“Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip”), Sophia Lillis (“37”), Finn Wolfhard (TV’s “Stranger Things”), Wyatt Oleff (“Guardians of the Galaxy”), Chosen Jacobs (upcoming “Cops and Robbers”), Jack Dylan Grazer (“Tales of Halloween”) and Nicholas Hamilton (“Captain Fantastic”).

IT, directed by Andrés Muschietti (Mama), is in theaters September 8.

Watch the official trailer below.
