A group of bullied kids band together when a shapeshifting monster, taking the appearance of a clown, begins hunting children.

It took seven years to develop this film adaptation of Stephen King's gripping horror novel.  Patience and attention to detail paid off as It has become the highest grossing 'R' rated horror film of all time, with over $327 million at the Box Office.  Pressure on the film's success was also placed by the highly regarded 1990 mini series based on the same source material which starred Tim Curry as Pennywise, the otherworldly predator that takes on the form of a clown to hunt children.

Hugo Weaving and Bill Skarsgård were the two finalists for the role of Pennywise after Will Poulter left the project. Skarsgård eventually got the role, reportedly due to his ability to play a more fun and child-like Pennywise, in addition to a creepy Pennywise, while Weaving reportedly fell short in playfulness and could only play creepy.

While Skarsgård declared himself a huge fan of Tim Curry in general and Curry's specific performance as Pennywise in the TV version, he also said that he did not try to incorporate any of Curry's work into his own portrayal of Pennywise, because he felt that he could not "do Tim Curry anywhere near as well as Curry himself did" and he did not want his performance to echo this and become a distraction.


Though CGI was used in some scenes, Skarsgård was actually able to move his eyes in different directions in some scenes at the behest of Andy Muschietti. At first, it was uncertain if he was able to achieve this effect on his own, yet Skarsgård assures, "I can do that." The purpose of this was to add to an already unsettling and disturbing look to Pennywise.
