Supernatural horror film “IT” was one of the biggest films of 2017, grossing an astonishing $697 million worldwide.

Based on Stephen King’s iconic novel of the same name, the Andres Muschietti-directed film was well received by fans for staying true to its source material.


Those who can’t get enough of the two-hour movie are in for a treat, as an extended director’s cut of the film will be released on Jan. 9, 2018.


According to horror-film website Bloody Disgusting, the Blu-Ray version will be 15 minutes longer than the theatrical version and will include 11 deleted and extended scenes, as well as an alternate gag opening.

Aside from the extended footage, fans will also be treated to special features including an interview with “Pennywise” himself, Bill Skarsgård, who detailed his preparations for the role.

Bonus footage from “The Losers Club” show how the teenage stars of the movie bonded through production, while the iconic author, King, also discussed  the nature of childhood fear, the report said.

The much-anticipated sequel, “It: Chapter Two” is scheduled to be released on Sept. 6, 2019.  Khristian Ibarrola /ra
