Warner Bros. Pictures and New Line have released the first trailer for “IT: Chapter 2,” the upcoming sequel to 2017’s critically acclaimed and massive global box-office hit which grossed over $700 million globally.
Adapting the other half of Stephen King’s iconic novel, “IT” sees evil resurfacing in Derry as director Andy Muschietti reunites the Losers Club – back together as adults, nearly three decades after the events of the first film – in a return to where it all began.
Jessica Chastain, James McAvoy, Bill Hader, Isaiah Mustafa, Jay Ryan, James Ransone and Andy Bean star as the adult versions of the Losers Club, with the same kids returning for appearances.
Bill Skarsgard returns in the key role of Pennywise the Clown and recently spoke with EW about how the character has changed a bit due to events in the first film:
“He’s inflicted fear on his prey, and he’s very focused on fear, but he’s never experienced it himself. Now he’s experienced something that he has been inflicting on others and … there’s a shift leading into the second movie. It fuels hatred and anger towards the kids, who will be adults in this one, so I think there might be an even more vicious Pennywise. He’s really going after it.”
“IT: Chapter 2” is slated for release in cinemas and IMAX on September 6th.
