A collection of IT Chapter Two posters were shared recently ahead of the highly anticipated sequel’s arrival this week.
One set of these posters, shared on Warner Bros.’ Belgium Instagram account, show the adult Losers’ Club paired with the faces of their younger selves when seen through a red balloon. The second set of posters are basically the same thing, but this time in the form of motion posters with the red balloon floating by and revealing the younger versions of the characters as it passes.
You can check out the posters below along with a lengthy synopsis and some bonus videos.

Andy Muschietti‘s IT was one huge surprise as it wisely split Stephen King‘s epic novel of the same name into two parts, with the first being a pure coming of age film which saw a group of young kids spend their summer vacation fighting an evil which often takes the form of a clown named Pennywise.
Though they are successful, Pennywise promised to come back 27 years later, and they, in turn, promised to unite as one to fight the clown when it returned. This only set the stage for IT Chapter Two, which not only completes their story but promised to be an epic battle between good and evil.
Orion Pictures has released a teaser trailer for Gretel & Hansel, a new take on the Brothers Grimm fairy tale Hansel and Gretel which was first published in 1812. The movie stars Sophia Lillis (IT Chapter Two, Sharp Objects) and Samuel Leakey (MotherFatherSon) as Gretel and Hansel, a young girl and her little brother who encounter a woman (Star Trek: First Contact and Carnival Row star Alice Krige) in the woods while in search of food and work.
The original Grimm fairy tale is already pretty dark, but as you’ll see in the trailer, this latest adaptation looks to take the story to even darker places, drawing inspiration from films like Robert Eggers’ 2016 hit The Witch.
