Sky Cinema: IT (2017, Sky 15)
Stephen King’s 1986 novel gets the big-screen treatment. Bill Skarsgard (Hemlock Grove) takes over from star of the 90s TV mini-series Tim Curry as Pennywise the Dancing Clown, the malevolent, shape-shifting demon who drags little Georgie Denbrough into the sewers of Derry, Maine - an act which prompts guilt-ridden older brother Bill (Midnight Special’s Jaeden Lieberher) to go looking for answers.
Joining him on his brave, Stand by Me-style quest is a ragtag bunch of bulled outsiders including wisecracking loudmouth Richie Tozier (Finn Wolfhard, Stranger Things) and lone girl of the group Bev Marsh (the excellent Sophia Lillis). Also on demand from Friday.
