IT Chapter 2 has released its final trailer and boy are we terrified. Pennywise is back and of course he’s not clowning around. This time around he’s not sparing adults either.
We even get to see Bill Skarsgård as Pennywise The Clown without the CGI.
Bill Skarsgård managed to make the murderous clown even more blood-curdling than when we last saw him.
“For 27 years I’ve dreamt of you, I’ve craved you, I’ve missed you!”
Recapping the end of the last installment, we saw how Pennywise withered into ash and fell down a sewer hole when The Losers’ Club last battled him.
Fast forward to 27 years after the first movie, most of the members of The Losers’ Club have somehow forgotten their horrific experiences after moving out of Derry, Maine. All except for Mike (Isaiah Mustafa).
When the club gets together for a reunion, Mike gives them the deets.
“Something happens to you when you leave this town. The farther away, the hazier it all gets. But me, I never left. I remember all of it.”
Maybe Mike called them all back with the return of Pennywise like, in the book?
IT Chapter 2 Cast
While the adult cast for IT Chapter 2 is stunning, there were glimpses of the IT cast from the previous movie. Interestingly, the younger cast actually got to pick the actors they wanted to play their adult versions.
IT Chapter Two cast comprises of James McAvoy as Bill, Jessica Chastain as Beverly, Bill Hader as Richie, Jay Ryan as Ben and James Ransone as Eddie.
Not only did Pennywise the clown survive, looks like this time around he’s got a vendetta against the Losers’ Club.
“It consumes you from the inside until we don’t have a choice anymore.”
The adult actor to play Stanley in IT Chapter 2 is missing throughout the trailer. According to the book, Stan does not return to Derry in 1985 to help them a second time.
When Mike calls in help by asking the Losers’ Club to fulfill their oath, Stan is flooded by all memories of IT, unlike the others that don’t remember.
Consumed by the fear and trauma in his childhood, Stan kills himself. The IT Chapter Two trailer opens up with Pennywise terrorizing an adult. Is it Stan? Is it another member of the Losers’ Club? Guess we’ll have to watch the movie to find out.
