While we know the movie isn’t set to premiere until September 2017, we still hear about it all the time. The movie is almost a bad luck charm.

That being said, a new picture of Pennywise was released yesterday along with an interview with Skarsgård at Entertainment Weekly, seem to show a Pennywise we may not recognize.

“It’s such an extreme character. Inhumane,” Skarsgård tells the outlet. “It’s beyond even a sociopath, because he’s not even human. He’s not even a clown. I’m playing just one of the beings It creates… »

First look at Pennywise

Tim Curry’s performance was truly great, but it’s important for me to do something different because of that”, Skårsgard told EW. “I’ll never be able to make a Tim Curry performance as good as Tim Curry”.

“It’s such an extreme character. Inhumane,” Skarsgård continues. “It’s beyond even a sociopath, because he’s not even human. »
