'It' remake reveals chilling new costume design for Pennywise

Find clowns a bit creepy? You might want to stop reading now, because the much anticipated It remake has released the first proper picture of the its new Pennywise clown - and he has yellow teeth and frilly sleeves.

At the helm of costume designing for the film is Emmy award winning Janie Bryant, who worked on shows such as Deadwood and Mad Men. “He is definitely a clown from a different time," Bryant told Entertainment Weekly. "There is almost a doll-like quality to the costume. The pants being short, the high waistline of the jacket, and the fit of the costume is a very important element. It gives the character a child-like quality.”

The Stephen King classic will feature Bill Skarsgard as the iconic clown, who has to fill some pretty big boots (literally) to take over from Tim Curry, but with an updated on the costume this terrifying, we think the role is in safe hands.

The remake will also feature Stranger Things' Finn Wolfhard, which is due in cinemas 8 September 2017.
