Over at San Diego Comic-Con, a Final Trailer was just released for “IT: Chapter Two,” the conclusion to the record-breaking remake of the classic Stephen King story. Andy Muschietti returns to the helm, while the cast includes Jessica Chastain, Xavier Dolan, Jack Dylan Grazer, Bill Hader, Sophia Lillis, Jaeden Martell, James McAvoy, James Ransone, Bill Skarsgård, Jess Weixler, and Finn Wolfhard.
“IT: Chapter Two” is the second half of the story begun in “IT.” Picking up years later, the adult versions of The Losers return to their hometown. Unfortunately, this puts them right back into the crosshairs of Pennywise the Dancing Clown. Together, they’ll hope to finally defeat Pennywise, once and for all. Of course, things won’t go smoothly for them, at all.
The official IMDb synopsis for the film is as follows:
Twenty-seven years after their first encounter with the terrifying Pennywise, the Losers Club have grown up and moved away, until a devastating phone call brings them back.
Returning for round two, in addition to the youngsters and Muschietti in the director’s chair, are writer Gary Dauberman and composer Benjamin Wallfisch. This time around, the cinematography is by Checco Varese. With an accomplished group of new cast members to portray the adult versions of the protagonists, “IT: Chapter Two” has an added sheen of prestige to it. Can the second part prove to be as well-received as the first? Audiences will find out in September, though those in attendance at Comic-Con were sufficiently unnerved by this Trailer.
