ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: The summer box office ended on a low note, the first time since 2006 that movies brought in less than 4 billion dollars in North America. But the cast of "It," which opens on Friday (September 08), hopes that horror will bring people back to the theater. Actors of the film walked a black carpet at the movie's Los Angeles premiere on Tuesday (September 05). Actor Bill Skarsgard, who plays children's nightmare-come-to-life character Pennywise the clown, said the "scary" state of the world will be an encouragement for movie-goers. The film follows a group young outcasts who see their fears come to life in the form of a shape-shifting predator. Finn Wolfhard, who came to fame in the Netflix series "Stranger Things," plays one of those outcasts. He was also certain audiences would turn up to experience a shared scare together.
