A teaser trailer for It: Chapter 2 is out and it doesn't disappoint.
Directed by Andy Muschietti, the sequel of Stephen King´s 1986 horror novel adaptation takes place in 2016, when the Losers Club, members of which are now all adults, return to their hometown 27 years after being terrorized by a demon called Pennywise.
The three-minute video shows Beverly Marsh (Jessica Chastain) visiting the house where she used to live and later enjoying tea and making small talk with the current home owner, Mrs. Kersh.
“No one who dies here ever really dies,” Mrs. Kersh says while smiling broadly and then disappearing into the kitchen. While looking at old family pictures on the wall, Beverly makes a terrifying discovery when she recognizes the haunting Dancing Clown.
Her grown up childhood friends are also shown, fighting the scary killer. Accompanied by flashbacks of their haunting memories, fans get to see Bill Denbrough (James McAvoy) staring at the sewer where clown Pennywise kidnapped his younger brother, and later return to the place where everything started alongside the other club members: Richie Tozier (Bill Hader), Ben Hascomb (Jay Ryan), Eddie Kaspbrak (James Ransone) and Isaiah Mustafa (Mike Hanlon).
A blood bath and the creepy clown being shown throughout the trailer indeed promise an exciting horror sequel to the film It. King himself has praised the movie as "terrific".
Looking forward to IT CHAPTER 2? You should be. I've seen it, and it's terrific. The trailer is coming Thursday, at noon. You'll float.— Stephen King (@StephenKing) May 7, 2019
