'It: Chapter 2' official trailer has arrived and is simply blood-curdling
Bill Skarsgård is back as the terrifying Pennywise and so are the members of the Loser's club. The trailer spares the natural buildup of introducing the horror elements and gets into the act right at the start
'It' raked in the moolah and had one of the biggest openings for a horror movie in recent times. The film is an adaptation of Stephen King's horror novel 'It' of the same name. The movie was split into two parts, and part one explained the story if the Loser's club when they were kids. The second part is slated for a September 6, 2019 release and the official trailer hit the world today.
"But you know what they say about Derry. No one who dies here really dies."
And that sets the tone for what is a blood-curdling two-and-a-half minute clip that follows.
The trailer opens with Marsh back in her home in Derry. It isn't long before we see the clown quickly, yet stealthily make an entrance in the clip. The trailer also shows footage of the grown-up Loser's club and glimpses of the sewer. (Obvious!) All this, while we see hear Pennywise's terrifying laugh in the background. The clip also shows flashbacks of the past.
Part Two of the movie will pick up with a much older Loser's Club. The young heroes make a pact to return to Derry after defeating Pennywise the clown in the summer of 1989. But with Pennywise returning every 27 from the Derry depths to terrorize and eat the children. The official synopsis from WEB reads- "Twenty-seven years after the events of the summer of 1989, It (Bill Skarsgård) returns. The Losers' Club fulfills their promises and returns to Derry to put an end to the evil being once and for all. Unbeknownst to them, It has returned, stronger and crueler than ever."
With the story focusing on the adult losers, there is a new cast in the form of Jessica Chastain ('The Martian') as Beverly Marsh. James McAvoy ('X-Men' and 'Arthur Christmas') plays Bill Denbrough, who was played by Jaeden Lieberher in the first part. Taking over from Finn Wolfhard, Bill Hader ('Year One' and 'Power Rangers') plays Richie Tozier while Bill Skarsgard ('Deadpool 2') reprises his role as the terrifying Pennywise.
Talking to IndieWire, Skarsgard said: “It’s weird and it’s surreal because some of them are really big stars and they’re coming in to your thing,” the actor said. “They’re stepping into the thing that me and Andy and the kids did. They’re joining the band, in a way. They’re excited, and I just had a lot of fun hanging out with all of them. It’s going to be a very different shooting experience with all adults, for sure, but it will be fun. They’re all really cool and talented people, so I think they will bring a lot to the table.”
Tatum Lee, Javier Botet and Isaiah Mustafa round up the cast of 'It: Chapter 2'. Andy Muschietti returns to direct the sequel, while the script was written by Gary Dauberman and Jeffrey Jurgensen.
