The trailer for It: Chapter 2 has been released, and it features some more terrifying action as well as a brief glimpse of Pennywise the Clown.
When Andy Muschietti’s first film came out back in 2017, nobody predicted what a huge hit it would be.
It proved to be the most profitable horror film of all time and broke all sorts of other box office records in the process.
The film was based on Stephen King’s novel of the same name and this upcoming It: Chapter 2 will tell the story of what happens to the members of the Losers’ Club as adults.
It: Chapter 2 will take place 27 years after the events of the first film, and it’s already been teased that it’ll have a tragic ending.
Screenwriter Gary Dauberman, recently opened up about the film’s ending during an interview with Slash Film in which he said: “Like I said with the first one, it’s really this embarrassment of riches.
He continued: “It was trying to do your best job of taking what Stephen King wrote so beautifully all those years ago and try to translate it to the script page. For me, it was just really fun to be able to revisit these characters and see what they’re up to 27 years later.
“There was a challenge trying to get all those character introductions and ‘here’s where we are so far’ which is fun to tackle. How can we find an elegant solution to introduce this many characters again to the audience?”
This first trailer for It: Chapter 2 seems to suggest that this second film will be just as terrifying as the first, and it features some very big names in the cast.
It: Chapter 2 stars James McAvoy (X-Men: First Class, X-Men: Days of Future Past, Glass) as Bill, Jessica Chastain (Zero Dark Thirty, Molly’s Game) as Beverly, Bill Hader (Trainwreck, Barry) as Richie, Jay Ryan (Beauty and the Beast) as Ben, James Ransone (Generation Kill) as Eddie, with Andy Bean (Here and Now) as Stanley Uris, and Isaiah Mustafa as Mike.
The younger versions of these characters were played by Jaeden Lieberher, Sophia Lillis, Jeremy Ray Taylor, Finn Wolfhard, Wyatt Oleff, Chosen Jacobs, and Jack Dylan Grazer.
It: Chapter 2 will hit UK cinemas on September 6th, 2019.
