The movie trailer for Stephen King's 'IT' is here and it's terrifying AF

Warner Bros. released the first trailer for its adaptation of IT!

One of the most popular scenes of the trailer seems to be the projector scene, even though it is different to how it appears in the book. In the original book, Bill and Richie are looking at Georgie's old photo album, and the same ordeal occurs, but the change is being seen as a positive thing by most fans.

“I like the change,” one person wrote on Reddit. “More interactive, more visual. ‘90s version was cheesy with the book and I don't think it'd look good here either. It's fine for a book, but on screen? Nah.”

Others on Twitter noted that the projector scene was the takeaway moment, even though the scarier scene is unquestionably the last one, when Georgie is laughing and Pennywise darts across the room.

The response to the trailer has been overwhelmingly positive.

Perhaps most importantly, the trailer — and the movie in general — got the thumbs up from King himself.

IT is directed by Andrés Muschietti, who is the man behind the beloved 2014 film, Mama.
