It’s time to return to Derry as the first trailer for the IT sequel has finally arrived; giving us our first look at the older kids once again facing off against Pennywise…
It’s the strangest feeling being excited for a horror movie trailer like this. I’m a huge weenie when it comes to scary movies (even though I watch plenty of them), but the first IT completely blew me away. As such, I’ve been eager to see if they’re able to recapture that magic. Today offers up our first good look at what’s to come:
Evil resurfaces in Derry as director Andy Muschietti reunites the Losers Club—young and adult—in a return to where it all began with “It Chapter Two.”
The film is Muschietti’s follow-up to 2017’s critically acclaimed and massive worldwide box office hit “IT,” which grossed over $700 million globally. Both redefining and transcending the genre, “IT” became part of the cultural zeitgeist as well as the highest-grossing horror film of all time.
Because every 27 years evil revisits the town of Derry, Maine, “It Chapter Two” 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.
IT: Chapter Two hits theaters on September 6, 2019.
