Stephen King’s IT Home Entertainment Release Announced!
After taking over $600 million worldwide in its theatrical release to date, $17 million of which was at the Aussie box office alone, Roadshow Home Entertainment have announced a December 13th release for Stephen King’s IT on 4K Ultra-HD, Blu-ray & DVD locally! Rumour has it we can expect to see a limited edition Blu-ray Steelbook too but as to whether that’ll be a JB Hi-FI exclusive or trade-wide has yet to be revealed. What’s more the high-def SKUs will likely to contain the previously reported Extended Edition, throwing an additional fifteen minutes more footage into the mix!
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).
