The terrifying trailer begins with a group of children innocently exploring their hometown of Derry, Maine. “When you’re a kid, you think the universe revolves around you,” one of the boys says in a voiceover. “You think that you’ll always be protected and cared for. Then, one day, you realize that’s not true. ‘Cause when you’re alone as a kid, the monsters see you as weaker. You don’t even know if they’re getting closer.”

The clip then cuts to one of the story’s most iconic moments, when a young boy named George chases his paper sailboat down the street as it slips into a drain. When he looks inside to retrieve the homemade toy, he sees shape-shifting Pennywise the Dancing Clown (Bill Skarsgård) for the first time.

The trailer gives fans a much longer glimpse at the petrifying clown, who was only seen for a split second in a previously released teaser. As the new trailer goes on, seven members of the Losers’ Club investigate Pennywise while also facing their own personal demons.

The Andrés Muschietti-directed film is the first in a planned two-part series, with the second movie following the Losers’ Club as adults. It was previously adapted as a 1990 miniseries starring Tim Curry as Pennywise.
