IT is here! By IT I clearly mean the new movie adaptation of one of Stephen King's most famous novels! This has been a long time coming, the film being in development hell for years. Add to that the controversy over who would play the role of Pennywise — the fear-inducing otherworldly clown — previously brought to life by Tim Curry in the made-for-TV miniseries, and the project seemed doomed from the start.

Admittedly, I wasn't too keen about the reboot, but today we were treated with the new teaser trailer for the movie and I have to say that it really helped quash many of my fears swirling around it. Take a look:

What do you think? I'll be talking more about this trailer at greater length in next week's Trailer Tuesday on my Generation Jak blog. Maybe I'll catch you there!

Are you a Stephen King fan? If so, what's your favorite King book/story? Favorite movie/miniseries adaptation of his work? Did you read It? Were you a fan of the TV miniseries? What are your thoughts about this teaser trailer? Are you excited for the movie or do you believe it was unnecessary?
