Factual error: During the opening scene, a silver TV from the late 90's/early 00's is in the living room/dining room area. (00:02:10)

Continuity mistake: When Eddie falls through the floorboards, you can see his arm looks perfectly fine and is unbroken in a few quick shots. After the movie cuts back to him a few moments later, suddenly his arm is badly broken. (01:20:30 - 01:23:25)

Factual error: Eddie specifically tells the gang not to take his mom's "Delicious Deals" snacks because his mom loves them. But Delicious Deals are made by Mrs. Freshley, a company that was not founded until 1994. The boxes used in the movie even include the modern design that can be found today in most Dollar Tree stores. (00:23:00)

Trivia: Cary Fukunaga, whom is perhaps best known as a director on the series "True Detective" and for his works on films like "Jane Eyre", was originally contracted to write and direct the film. He eventually left the project after creative clashes with the studio, as he wanted to make a more unconventional film and executives feared his vision would not sit well with mainstream audiences. Fukunaga is still credited in the final film as a co-writer, however as many scenes from his version of the script were preserved in the final film.

Trivia: When Richie is in the room full of clown statues, the statue to the immediate left of the miniature-casket at the end of the room is wearing the same outfit that Tim Curry wore in the 1990 TV-movie adaptation of "It." A small wink and nod to the prior film.

Trivia: Bill SkarsgÄrd was purposely kept separated from the child-actors during filming, and outside of some early publicity photos, the kids never saw him until the first scene they filmed together in order to get their genuine reactions. The kids were both genuinely scared of him, but also incredibly excited after filming their first scene.

More quotes from It


Question: Why does this version of Pennywise look so scary as opposed to Tim Curry's version? Tim's version looks harmless enough that children would definitely go up to him but Bill's version would certainly have scared a child even today.

Answer: It's a matter of artistic choice to create a different look and mood from its predecessor. The filmmakers of the new movie made Pennywise more overtly malevolent, whereas the Tim Curry version portrayed the character as benevolent looking to hide an evil interior, and be able to more easily gain children's trust..

Answer: Artistic choice, and (directly or indirectly) being more faithful to the original novel. Pennywise's appearance in this film is almost an exact replica of the book's descriptions, with a 19th century style added to it, and some minor changes.

Question: Why does Pennywise kill Georgie and Patrick almost immediately, but then spend time tormenting the other kids instead of outright killing them?

Chosen answer: In order to install the fear of death in someone, to put them in your grasp, you must kill those closest to you. In doing so the fear is always inside them. Pennywise will always be in their thoughts and dreams. Which will constantly torture the kids, which what he wants.

Answer: Pennywise murders and eats children because to him frightened children taste the best. By killing George and Patrick then torturing the others, he's building up enough fear in them so when he does decide to eat them, to him they'll be delicious.

Question: Are the other kids who are floating dead? We know Bev isn't and she is floating, what about the rest? Are they dead, if so why hasn't Pennywise eaten them? And if not, why kill Patrick but don't make him float too? He isn't part of the Losers club.

Answer: The other kids are dead. Beverly is likely being used as bait. Pennywise is saving them to eat later. We don't get a clear look a the other kids, so Patrick may very well be among them.
