Pennywise is back and even more terrifying than before.
IT defied box office expectations and grossed $327 million in the U.S. and $700 million worldwide back in 2017. Naturally, Warner Bros is hoping the sequel matches, if not, exceeds its predecessor’s performance. Based on the first teaser trailer, I think it stands a solid shot. I was on the edge of my seat watching the clip.
It features Jessica Chastain, as the adult Bev, having tea with a creepy old woman living in her childhood home. The video was first shown at CinemaCon last month and now we can finally see what all the buzz was about.
Every 27 years, evil revisits the town of Derry, Maine. IT: Chapter 2 brings the characters— who’ve long since gone their separate ways— back together as adults, nearly three decades after the events of the first film. Will the Losers Club once again defeat the terrorizing clown?
Playing the adult versions of the Losers Club are Jessica Chastain as Beverly, James McAvoy as Bill, Bill Hader as Richie, Isaiah Mustafa as Mike, Jay Ryan as Ben, James Ransone as Eddie, and Andy Bean as Stanley. Reprising their roles as the original members of the Losers Club are Jaeden Martell as Bill, Wyatt Oleff as Stanley, Jack Dylan Grazer as Eddie, Finn Wolfhard as Richie, Sophia Lillis as Beverly, Chosen Jacobs as Mike, and Jeremy Ray Taylor as Ben. Bill Skarsgård returns in the seminal role of Pennywise.
IT: Chapter 2 arrives September 6. Check out the teaser below.
