The home entertainment release of IT, one of 2017’s biggest movies, will feature a whopping ELEVEN deleted scenes. It’s not yet clear how many will feature Pennywise, but one is rumoured to be a grisly flashback scene set hundreds of years before the events of the movie.
However there’s no sign of the Director’s Cut confirmed by the producers of the film that’s said to have 15 extra minutes of footage.
Warner Bros. Home Entertainment has announced that horror fans will be able to get their hands on the hit Stephen King adaptation on 15 January, 2018, or as a digital download on New Year’s Day.
IT will be available on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray™, DVD and Blu-ray™ Steelbook, and will feature a number of extras including the 11 deleted scenes, a new interview with Stephen King, and behind-the-scenes featurettes.
Here’s the official details:
IT 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray™ and Blu-ray™ Steelbook contain the following special features:

Movie studios are really pushing the new 4K Ultra HD format which offers an even better picture quality that the traditional 1080p image that you get from Blu-ray. However, you will need a 4K Ultra HD television to really appreciate the added benefit.
