Warner Bros. Pictures has released the first trailer for IT: Chapter Two, the highly anticipated sequel to 2017’s IT.
The movie is the second part of the two-part adaptation of author Stephen King‘s horror novel of the same name. You can find much more information on the movie in a lengthy synopsis and check out the teaser trailer below.
Evil resurfaces in Derry as director Andy Muschietti reunites the Losers Clubâ€”young and adultâ€”in a return to where it all began with â€œIt Chapter Two.â€
The film is Muschiettiâ€™s follow-up to 2017â€™s critically acclaimed and massive worldwide box office hit â€œIT,â€ which grossed over $700 million globally. Both redefining and transcending the genre, â€œITâ€ 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, â€œIt Chapter Twoâ€ brings the charactersâ€”whoâ€™ve long since gone their separate waysâ€”back together as adults, nearly three decades after the events of the first film.
Oscar nominee Jessica Chastain (â€œZero Dark Thirty,â€ â€œMamaâ€) stars as Beverly, James McAvoy (â€œSplit,â€ upcoming â€œGlassâ€) as Bill, Bill Hader (HBOâ€™s â€œBarry,â€ â€œThe Skeleton Twinsâ€) as Richie, Isaiah Mustafa (TVâ€™s â€œShadowhunters: The Mortal Instrumentsâ€) as Mike, Jay Ryan (TVâ€™s â€œMary Kills Peopleâ€) as Ben, James Ransone (HBOâ€™s â€œThe Wireâ€) as Eddie, and Andy Bean (â€œAllegiant,â€ Starzâ€™ â€œPowerâ€) as Stanley. Reprising their roles as the original members of the Losers Club are Jaeden Martell as Bill, Wyatt Oleff as Stanley, Jack Dylan Grazer as Eddie, Finn Wolfhard as Richie, Sophia Lillis as Beverly, Chosen Jacobs as Mike, and Jeremy Ray Taylor as Ben. Bill SkarsgÃ¥rd returns in the seminal role of Pennywise.
Muschietti directed the film from a screenplay by Gary Dauberman (â€œIT,â€ â€œAnnabelle: Creationâ€) based on the novel IT by Stephen King. Barbara Muschietti, Dan Lin and Roy Lee produced the film, with Marty Ewing, Seth Grahame-Smith and David Katzenberg serving as the executive producers.
The behind-the-scenes creative team included director of photography Checco Varese (â€œThe 33â€), Oscar-winning production designer Paul Denham Austerberry (â€œThe Shape of Waterâ€), editor Jason Ballantine (â€œIT,â€ â€œMad Max: Fury Roadâ€), and Oscar-nominated costume designer Luis Sequeira (â€œThe Shape of Water,â€ â€œMamaâ€). The music is by Benjamin Wallfisch (â€œShazam!,â€ â€œBlade Runner 2049,â€ â€œITâ€).
IT: Chapter Two is set to be released in theaters on September 6th.
