Question: Tim Curry is said to appear as two different characters, Pennywise and Richie's boss, but I couldn't see him as the second. Where does he appear?

Answer: I fear you may have been misinformed. He only appears as Pennywise in the film.

Question: What is the deal with everyone saying "beep beep" to Ritchie every time he tells a joke?

lartaker1975

Chosen answer: It's their way of telling Richie to be quiet. To get him to stop talking.

Answer: In the book it is explained that they are telling Richie to shut up.

Chosen answer: No. It is a common misconception that he has a cameo in all of the movies/TV movies based on his works.

Question: Tim Curry is credited not only as Pennywise but as Robert "Bob" Gray. Who was he and when did he appear?

Answer: Pennywise often introduced himself as 'Robert "Bob" Gray aka Pennywise the Dancing Clown'. I don't know if he does it in the movie or not.

Grumpy Scot

Answer: He was the gas station attendant that Audra came up and asked how far till she gets to Derry.

The gas station attendant actor is Boyd Norman, who looks nothing like Tim Curry.

Question: Like the other Losers, Bill says he'd forgotten what happened during their childhood, but when he decides to go back into the sewer, he tells he others he's lived with it and has been afraid all his life. If he forgot, how could it still haunt him?

Chosen answer: Even if the specific details are forgotten, the emotional damage remains and small clues can trigger a response.

Question: Was there only one It? If It/Pennywise, was an alien or something, how come there wasn't more of them?

Answer: There was only one "It". It was a single entity, not a species; a being from "outside" our universe, the living embodiment of fear and destruction.

Answer: It is a shapeshifter.

Question: At the end of the movie while the gang is pulling out the guts of the spider, the camera zooms to the wall showing a shadow of all of them ripping out what looks to be the shape of a human. What exactly is this that they ripped out of the spider?

Talespin798

Chosen answer: According to the book, it is IT's Heart. Although this could be wrong due to the common transition between books and films where the director decides to change the odd thing. It would make sense that it is IT's heart though, as they are punching through the chest of the spider.

Question: Pennywise, the Singing and Dancing clown, is dressed in bright colors in the movie. The clown in the book wore silver. Does anyone know why this change was made?

Answer: Silver costumes would have reflected studio lights and looked odd.

Grumpy Scot

Question: In the scene at the rock pile when the book comes to life and Pennywise says, "I'll kill you all. I'll drive you crazy and I'll kill you all", these words don't at all match whatever words his mouth is actually forming. It's so obvious. This is an audio dub to replace whatever he's supposed to be saying in the book. Does anybody have any idea what happened here?

Answer: In the only version I know his lips movement matches what is being said. Not sure what you mean, check out the scene at youtube.

Answer: I think you're mistaking Tim Curry's distinctive way of speaking as Pennywise with him being dubbed. He curls the corners of his mouth as he talks which makes his mouth look like he's saying something else. The only other film I can remember him doing something similar in is The Shadow, he kind of talks with the same mannerisms.

Question: When Henry, Belch, and Victor go down into the sewers in the first part of the movie, I know they separated, but what happens to Victor? All I saw was a bunch of bright light.

Answer: He was caught and killed by Pennywise, just like Belch is a few minutes later. They just cut away before he dies. But it's easy enough to surmise he's dead given all the context clues the movie gives you.

Continuity mistake: When they are in the library after they found out Stan committed suicide, it shows Beverly stand up but when it cuts back to her she is sitting down and stands up.

Pennywise: I'm every nightmare you've ever had. I'm your worst dream come true. I'm everything you ever were afraid of.

Trivia: When the adults walk into the library, you'll see some of Bill's books on display (Bill is described as the Stephen King character), and all of Bill's books (Whether it's the name, topic, or cover picture) are based in some way on Stephen King's books. For instance - The Glowing/The Shining.
