Clowns have gotten a bad rap lately and the new trailer for Warner Bros. Pictures and New Line Cinema's It reminds you why. Andrés Muschietti directs the film, based on the classic Stephen King novel.

You’ll only catch a glimpse of “It” in the trailer above, but we guarantee it'll have you floating—get it?—straight to your local cinema when It arrives Sept. 8.

Until then, may we suggest limited exposure to red balloons and sewers.
