Pennywise is back and as terrifying as ever in first trailer for IT: Chapter II


We all float down here —

“You know what they say about Derry. No one who dies here ever really dies.”

Jennifer Ouellette

The Losers Club returns to Derry as adults in IT: Chapter Two, based on Stephen King’s bestselling novel.

Pennywise the murderous clown is back and scarier than ever, looking for revenge on the grown-up members of the Losers Club inIT: Chapter Two, Warner Brothers’ follow-up to its 2017’s blockbuster horror film,IT.

(Some spoilers for first film and novel below.)

Set in 1989,  IT essentially adapted half of King’s original novel, telling the story of a group of misfit kids calling themselves “The Losers Club,” who discover their small town of Derry is home to an ancient, trans-dimensional evil that awakens every 27 years to prey on children in particular, taking the form of an evil clown named Pennywise. Bill (Jaeden Lieberher) loses his little brother, Georgie, to Pennywise, and the group decides to take on Pennywise and drive him into early hibernation, where he will hopefully starve. But Beverly (Sophia Lillis) has a vision warning that Pennywise will return on schedule in 27 years, and they must be ready to fight him anew.

IT: Chapter Tworevisits our protagonists 27 years later, as they all return to Derry to confront the horrors of their past and put an end to the unspeakable evil (aka Pennywise) that has terrorized the town for decades. The trailer opens innocuously enough, with adult Beverly (Jessica Chastain) returning to the house she grew up in and sitting down for tea with the elderly woman now occupying the house. But that old woman turns out to be not so innocent—our first indication thatIT: Chapter Twois likely to be just as terrifying as its predecessor.

IT: Chapter Twohits theaters September 6, 2019. Be afraid. Be very afraid.
