A year ago, if you had asked horror movie fans if they were excited for a reboot of Stephen King's IT novel (and its famous '90s TV miniseries adaptation), they probably would've answered in a resounding "no." However, director Andy Muschietti (Mama) has unveiled two deeply disturbing and frightening trailers that have made fans believe; now, the IT movie remake is one of the most anticipated movies of the fall 2017 season.
The new IT trailer (which you can watch above) had the bigger task of expanding on the near-perfect (but shorter) teaser trailer with more story and character details - which left room for more opportunities to disappoint. As you can see below, though, viewers are taking notice of IT, and they are loving being terrified of what they see.
Here are the Internet Reactions To The New IT Trailer:
Even those who have remained skeptical about the new IT movie are starting to come around. It's a testament to the strength of these trailers, and all the creepy marketing surrounding them.
I was really skeptical of the new It movie but that new trailer that just came out.

The Scaredy Cats
As you can see above, this new IT trailer did its primary job: It terrified people all over the world. It's not everyday (these days) that a horror film can accomplish that, so this is a testament to the good work the cast and crew has done.

If sleep is on your agenda anytime soon, then you may want to (as this viewer advises) rethink you curiosity about this new IT movie. What you see in the trailer may give you true nightmares.

Even some roughnecks out there are legitimately frightened of the new IT trailer - and aren't afraid to talk about it. Clowns just bring that out in people, I guess.
