It's not often you find yourself eagerly awaiting a fresh glimpse of a nightmare-inducing clown, but here we are.

It's now been well over a year since AndrΓ©s Muschietti's IT adaptation giggled its way into theatres, before going on to smash the previous record for highest-grossing U.S. box office horror movie. Since then, we've had some good β€” if slightly far-off sounding β€” news: IT Chapter Two will be coming to theatres on 6 Sept. 2019.

Okay, so that may still be nine months away, but β€” judging by Stephen King's recent tweet β€” we may be due a clown-themed surprise earlier than expected.

So, what exactly does that mean, then?

Well, if we had to guess, it seems likely that King has recently seen some promotional material relating to the film β€” possibly an image, or maybe even some early footage. Perhaps something that we may get to see ourselves before too long.Β 

It certainly feels like we're overdue some Pennywise...
