Fans have been given yet more glimpses of the remake of Stephen King's IT, which is set for release on 8 September.

The makers of the IT remake have unleashed three more clips for their excited fans.

The The Andrés Muschietti-directed film - which based on Stephen King's popular 1986 novel - has shared extended videos before the adaptation is set to be released next month.

Watch the first, which is entitled "This Town Is Cursed" above.

See clip 2, entitled Take IT:

Watch the third and final clip, which goes under the name I Don't Want To Go Missing Either:

Despite the new film seeming to take on some of the characteristics of the 1990 miniseries, which starred Tim Curry as the frightful clown, director Muschietti revealed he wasn't actually much of a fan of the TV programme. 

"To be honest," he admitted in an interview for SFX magazine. "I wasn’t a big fan of the miniseries. I was not a child anymore when it came out in 1990. 

"So my attachment was very much to the book and to the world of Stephen King more than the miniseries."

It's probably just as well that Muschietti isn't adhering too closely to the iconic show, since this adaptation sees Pennywise played by 26-year-old actor Bill Skarsgard, who was born in the same year the miniseries aired. 

IT is out in cinemas on Friday 8 September 2017.
