The 2017 highest grossing horror film will be getting a directors cut after all.
Andres Muschietti has confirmed that a director’s cut of “IT” is coming later 2018, indicating on social media: “Yes, but in a few months.”
There was talk of a longer and darker cut of the film back around the time of the theatrical release, but as the disc release for the film was announced it was revealed no such cut would be forthcoming in the initial home video run.
The Deleted scenes from the film include the following;
“Georgie Catches Boat”
Georgie grabs for the boat in the opening…and things go in a whole different direction than the film. You’ll be surprised.
“Stanley’s Dad Corrects Him (Extended Scene)”
Stanley is reciting Hebrew in a synagogue, but his Dad jumps in to correct his pronunciation.
“Denbrough Family Dinner”
Bill sits at the dinner table while his Dad reads a magazine and his Mum washes up. Bill starts talking about their family trip for the year, but his Mum walks off upset. His Dad explains that Georgie was really looking forward to it.
“Bill’s Dad Looks in the Basement”
After Bill has his encounter with Pennywise in the basement, he runs into his father. His Dad has a look in the basement, doesn’t find anything, and tells Bill to go to bed. Henry tries to sneak out past his Dad, and gets into a car with Victor and Belch. They see Mike ride past on his bike.
“Outside the Neibolt House”
Mike, Beverly, Ben and Stanley are outside the house while Bill, Eddie and Richie are inside. Stanley talks about not being able to go inside while Mike comforts him. Ben places his hand on Beverly’s shoulder.
“Evacuating the Neibolt House (Extended Scene)”
An extended scene of the Losers’ Club leaving the house and getting on their bikes.
“Stanley’s Bar Mitzvah Speech”
Stanley delivers a speech after his Bar Mitzvah about “indifference,” during which there’s a brief montage showing what the other kids are up to. He makes a bit of a scene and storms off while Richie claps.
“Eddie at Keene’s pharmacy (Extended Scene)”
Just an extended scene at the pharmacy as Eddie talks to the girl who signs his cast with “Loser.”
“Henry and Bullies wait outside (Extended scene)”
As the Losers’ Club heads into the Neibolt house, Henry sits in his car with his face covered in blood. Belch and Victor are dead with throats slit.
“The Losers find Georgie’s walkie”
Bill picks up Georgie’s walkie right before Henry attacks Mike at the top of the well.
“Denbrough Family Vacation”
After saying goodbye to Beverly at the end of the movie, Bill and his parents are packing for the family vacation Bill was talking about in an earlier deleted scene. This subplot does kind of enhance the family dynamic. As the car drives away, the camera pulls in to the drain where Georgie was taken. Camera stops, and rain starts to hit the pavement.
The cut scenes don’t include the infamously scrapped scene set at an earlier point in time where Pennywise eats a baby, and the director’s cut may not as well as it’s rumored to be a scene being saved for the sequel which is being shot next year for a September 2019 release.
“IT” arrives on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, DVD and rental VOD on January 9th.
