I still don't fully understand what the Director's cut will contain. There is about 15 minutes of fairly short deleted scenes on this release. If there is gonna be a Director's cut then why show these seperate scenes? Does that mean that while these particular scenes were discarded, there's still a lot more filmed that the director wants to include in an extended cut?

It's kind of hard to imagine there was a lot missing. The film felt kind of complete and paced extremely well.

Ok, found it. This explains it clearly, there is indeed 15 minutes more, so we're not talking about Lord of the Rings kind of extended:

There is also a scene with a baby, but that still may end up in Part 2.

I'm very anxious to see this director's cut. I would hope that it includes additional Pennywise scenes. There is bits of bts footage around that show scenes that were not in the theatrical version such as him sitting holding a bunch of balloons. There's even a tv spot where he is heard saying "wanna ballooon" which was not in the film. Whether true or not there has been talk that the Georgie scene was heavily cut from what was shown in the original test screenings. Also there is a cast credit of "organ playing clown" who is played by the same guy who played Pyramid Head in Silent Hill I believe which again was not in the film I saw
