The world’s freakiest clown is back, and he’s coming to get you
Are you sitting on the edge of your seat? Well, shuffle down because the first trailer for the follow-up to 2017’s It has finally landed, and it’s just as spooky as we’d hoped.
Based on the 1986 novel by Stephen King, the trailer for It Chapter Two sees Beverly Marsh (portrayed by Jessica Chastain) return to her childhood home in Derry 27 years after the first film, right as evil is scheduled to return.
Marsh is greeted at the door by a frail-looking old lady, before nostalgically looking around – so far, so normal. But – obviously – it soon takes an ominous turn. Sipping tea, our creepy old lady Mrs Kersh starts talking about death, proclaiming: “You know what they say about Derry? No one who dies here ever really dies”.
As you yell at your screen for Marsh to get TF out of there, a naked Mrs Kersh appears and dramatically runs at the protagonist. That’s when the trailer heads down a more traditional route, as we see the Losers Club reunite in their mission to destroy Pennywise. Expect: red balloons, creepy clowns, and a return to the sewers.
The all-grown-up cast includes James McAvoy as Bill Denbrough, Bill Hader portraying Richie Tozer, James Ransone as Eddie Kaspbrak, Jay Ryan playing Ben Hanscom, and Isaiah Mustafa taking on Mike Hanlon.
With the 2017 cast, including Dazed cover star Finn Wolfhard, reprising their roles through flashbacks, the movie will undoubtedly be a terrifying roller coaster. Are you ready?
Watch the trailer below.
It Chapter Two will hit cinemas on September 6
