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.
There’s nothing like good old-fashioned hype to build anticipation. Jessica Chastain says that It: Chapter 2 will have one of the bloodiest horror sequences in horror movie history. There’s no telling if this is true or not, but based on how horrifying and successful Andy Muschietti‘s It (or It: Chapter 1) was, we should take the actress at her world.
Chastain, who appears in the upcoming sequel as an older Beverly Marsh, made the claim while on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. While I don’t take these nightly talk shows too seriously, they have been known to give us small nuggets worth of information; for instance, Ben Affleck confirming that he’s done with Batman. Sure, we’ve known that was coming, but still. And we’ve also seen trailers debut on these shows. So, there may be some truth to what Chastain said. Check out the video of her recent late night talk show appearance here below.
Production on IT: Chapter Two has officially begun. Ever since the first film was a hit, Warner Bros. has fast-tracked a sequel which would give the horror film a conclusion and bring an end to our fear of clowns – like that will ever happen.
So to celebrate such an occasion, James McAvoy, who will play the adult version of Bill Denbrough, has released a new pun-tastic photo that brings in a few laughs at the expense of Derry, Maine. Check out the photo below.

The first adaptation of Stephen King‘s novel It was a 1990 mini-series starring Tim Curry as the child-eating monster. The ambitious project from director Tommy Lee Wallace tried in vain to fit all 1,100 pages of King’s epic novel into two 2-hour blocks and the results were a mixed bag. The first half is nearly universally beloved thanks to some great child acting and Curry chewing the scenery and stealing nights of sleep as Pennywise the Dancing Clown. The second half focuses on the adults 27 years later returning to stop the evil again and it falters heavily from cheesy overacting and a universally “be-loathed” giant spider ending.
Coincidentally, it’s 27 year later, and Mama director Andy Muschietti took what worked back in 1990 and focused an entire film on it with Stephen King’s IT.
The release of the new adaptation of Stephen King‘s horror favorite IT draws ever closer, and marketing is in full swing.
A new featurette for the movie has been released, which is titled “Face Your Fears.” The featurette includes plenty of clips from the movie, paired with interviews with various cast and crew, including King.
