Stephen King Invites You to Face Your Fears in This All-New IT Featurette!

30 August 2017

We’re just over a week away from the September 7th Australian theatrical release of Stephen King’s IT and thanks to our friends at Roadshow Films, we’ve got an all-new featurette titled FACE YOUR FEARS to share with you.

This featurette takes the viewer on an emotional and terrifying journey of the story using film footage and behind the scenes. Filmmakers, cast & Steven King speak to the fears that the story taps into and how the kids find the strength in being together as they realize the fate of the cursed town in which they live in.

About the film:
For as long as their town has existed, Derry has been the entity’s hunting ground, emerging from the sewers every 27 years to feed on the terrors of its chosen prey: Derry’s children. Banding together over one horrifying and exhilarating summer, the Losers form a close bond to help them overcome their own fears and stop a new killing cycle that began on a rainy day, with a small boy chasing a paper boat as it swept down a storm drain…and into the hands of Pennywise the Clown.

IT is directed by Andrés Muschietti (MAMA), adapted by Chase Palmer & Cary Fukunaga and Gary Daubermanis from the hugely popular Stephen King novel of the same name, which has been terrifying readers for decades. Staring 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, Sophia Lillis, Finn Wolfhard (TV’s STRANGER THINGS), Wyatt Oleff (GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY), Chosen Jacobs, Jack Dylan Grazer (TALES OF HALLOWEEN) and Nicholas Hamilton (CAPTAIN FANTASTIC).

IT opens in cinemas across Australia & New Zealand on Thursday September 7th, a day ahead of both the US & UK.
