After ‘IT: Chapter 1’ became the highest grossing horror film of all time, the hype for Chapter 2 has been huge. And, on the 10th May, the first trailer for ‘Chapter 2’ was released.
This trailer reintroduces the Losers Club, who are now adults, as they return to their hometown of Derry 27 years later. One word to describe this trailer is CREEPY! The opening scene with an adult Beverly (played by Jessica Chastain) and an elderly woman reminds audiences of the first film’s tense atmosphere; an uncomfortably long pause between the two falsely prepares its viewers for a jumpscare.
From this scene onwards, it shows audiences the new cast, including James McAvoy (who plays Billy), Pennywise the Clown (in all his gory glory!) and hundreds of red balloons. A sight that is usually innocent and friendly is now terrifying and foreboding. Something tells me that ‘IT: Chapter 1’ was just a warning of things to come…
‘IT: Chapter 2’ is in cinemas 6th September 2019.
It Chapter Two is an upcoming American supernatural horror film and the sequel to the 2017 film It. Both films are based on the 1986 novel It by Stephen King. The sequel film is directed by Andy Muschietti and written by Gary Dauberman. Set in 2016, 27 years after the events of 1989 depicted in the first film, it stars Bill Skarsgård, who reprises his role as Pennywise. It also stars James McAvoy, Jessica Chastain, Bill Hader, Isaiah Mustafa, Jay Ryan, James Ransone, and Andy Bean, who portray the adult versions of The Losers Club, while Jaeden Lieberher, Sophia Lillis, Finn Wolfhard, Chosen Jacobs, Jeremy Ray Taylor, Jack Dylan Grazer, and Wyatt Oleff return from the first film as the younger Losers, respectively. The film is produced by New Line Cinema, Vertigo Entertainment, and Rideback, and distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures.
Talks for an It sequel began in February 2016, when Muschietti revealed the plan to get production underway. By September 2017, New Line Cinema announced that the sequel would be released in September 2019, with Dauberman writing the script, and Muschietti expected to direct the film. Principal photography on the film began on June 19, 2018, at Pinewood Toronto Studios and on locations in and around Port Hope, Oshawa, and Toronto, Ontario, and wrapped on October 31, 2018.
