Stephen King Welcomes You to the Losers Club!

08 September 2017

Stephen King’s IT opened in cinemas across Australia & New Zealand yesterday and thanks to our friends at Roadshow Films, we’ve got an all-new featurette titled WELCOME TO THE LOSERS CLUB to share with you.

Stephen King created characters who believe everything that children believe, yet not. They don’t believe in Santa Clause or the Tooth Fairy, but when the lights are out, they still think something’s under the bed. Through their fears and individual experiences, they come together to form the Losers’ Club. This film is not your standard horror movie as it deals with friendship and confronting darkness together.

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 is now showing in cinemas across Australia & New Zealand.
