Early Monday, Paramount dropped the final trailer for directors Dennis Widmyer and Kevin Kölsch's update on the King classic. Catch this final glimpse up top ahead of the movie's April 5 release.
The 2019 edition gives the pained roles of Louis and Rachel Creed to Jason Clarke and Amy Seimetz, who are joined this go-around by John Lithgow as notorious neighbor Jud. For Lithgow, the opportunity to bring his take to such a popular King character was inspired in large part by a newfound horror he discovered on the pages.
"I love horror that is played for a completely authentic, human emotion and to me, because it's a family story and everybody has a family, everybody connects with either a parent or child," he told Collider in February, recalling a persuasive 40-minute phone conversation he had with this new Pet Sematary team. "It just seemed to have this emotional foundation to it that could really take people to a cathartic place."
Theatrically, Kingheads also have the next chapter of It to look forward to this September. Chapter One stars like Bill Skarsgård are joined in the 27-years-later happenings of Chapter Two by James McAvoy, Bill Vader, Jessica Chastain, Jay Ryan, Isaiah Mustafa, Andy Bean, and James Ransone as older versions of the Pennywise crew.
