Get ready for a whole lot of Bill Skarsgård as Pennywise the Dancing Clown when IT: Chapter Two floats into US theaters beginning September 6th. And while IT may end, Skarsgård is on track to have a long and illustrious career in horror. Case in point, he’s starring in Villains, arriving in select theaters beginning September 20th.
Interestingly, Skarsgård is not one of the titular villains! Give the trailer a spin at the top of the article; check out the poster and synopsis below.
Mickey and Jules are lovers on the run, headed southbound for a fresh start in the Sunshine State. When their car dies after a gas station robbery, they break into a nearby house looking for a new set of wheels. What they find instead is a dark secret and a sweet-as-pie pair of homeowners who will do anything to keep it from getting out.
Villains is written and directed by Dan Berk and Robert Olsen; in addition to Skarsgård, the film stars Maika Monroe, Jeffrey Donovan, and Kyra Sedgwick.
