The very first trailer for the remake of It (or rather It: Part One, The Losers' Club) has finally landed and it looks CREEPY.

Early in the week ahead of the full trailer we were treated to an 18 second glimpse with this teaser.

"We all float down here..." *Shudder*

Reactions posted after the SXSW screening revealed what we can expect from the trailer.

Bloody Disgusting reveals: "The trailer opens with footage of Bill Denbrough making a paper boat for his little brother Georgie. We then move outside, where Georgie is chasing his boat in a rainstorm as it floats next to the curb.

"Suddenly, Georgie runs right into a street barrier, which knocks him down on the ground. He then watches as his boat sails into a gutter. He runs to the gutter and tries to see if he can see his boat. As he looks deep into the sewers, Pennywise abruptly appears before the screen cuts to black."

This is just the opening shot, which is very reminiscent of the 1990 miniseries starring Tim Curry – you can read a full breakdown of the rest of the trailer if you wish.

Bar the trailer, what we do know is that this will cover the first half of Stephen King's story, following a group of kids self-styled as The Losers' Club, who encounter an other-worldly evil who likes to disguise himself as a clown.

The young cast includes Stranger Things star Finn Wolfhard and Jaeden Lieberher from Midnight Special, while Bill Skarsgard plays Pennywise.

Check back later in the week for the trailer.

It opens in UK cinemas on September 8.
