"We couldn't be more thrilled with the results, and congratulate New Line Cinema, director Andy Muschietti and his phenomenal cast and crew on this fantastic opening". The ending of the movie proclaims that this is only chapter one, so I am interested to see how the next chapter unravels.

With It taking place in 1989, the sequel will probably be set pretty much in the modern day, though - as in the book - the action will jump between the two eras. And though Muschietti admits he and his producers have been thinking about what do to since filming wrapped on the movie, there's still no official decision on how they will handle the casting.

You have to admit, there's been a lot going on this year that might spawn other costumes in equal numbers.

Bill's little brother, Georgie, goes missing at the beginning of the film, and Bill becomes determined to find him, which eventually leads the Losers to their many encounters with Pennywise.

"IT" is the kind of movie that all film incarnations of novels should strive to be like.

Bill does Pennywise without make-up and it's just as creepy!

According to Warner Bros, "It" should make a staggering $117.2m (£88m) from 4,103 locations in the United States, becoming the most successful horror film to ever premiere in the country. The new Pennywise, played by Bill Skarsgrd, was straight-up sinister with his ability to manipulate his voice, face and body.
