It returns. Or, IT returns rather.
The trailer for IT Chapter Two, the sequel to 2017’s box office hit IT, was released on Thursday and promises more killer-clown creepiness.
Bill Skarsgård returns as Pennywise the Dancing Clown (aka It), as do the child actors that compromised the original film’s Loser’s Club. As the new film takes place 27 years later, stars like Jessica Chastain, Bill Hader, James McAvoy, and Isiah Mustafa portray the older versions of the kids.
Like the first movie, the plot was adapted from Stephen King’s It novel and Andy Muschietti returns as director. The film is scheduled for release on September 6th.
Big, Giant Clown Shoes To Fill
The first film in the series (well, not counting the 1990s miniseries that starred Tim Curry) set so many box office records, it has its own Wikipedia page to track them all. Among many other achievements, the film was the highest-grossing horror film of all-time in the US and Canada.
While that’s a high bar to reach, IT: Chapter Two will certainly come close if it’s any bit as creepy as the original.
