Warner Bros. releases trailer for ‘IT: Chapter Two’

I think I just peed my pants.

Two years ago, Warner Bros. and New Line released the terrifying IT. Adaptations of Stephen King’s (my favorite author) works have been iffy at best.

For every Shining there is a poorly made reboot of Pet Sematary and Carrie.

So, IT was a bit of a surprise as it was actually better than the terrific 1990 ABC miniseries that starred Tim Curry as Pennywise the Clown.

Audiences agreed as the film grossed $327.5 million in the U.S. and Canada in 2017 and $700.4 million worldwide on a $35 million production budget. The Andrés Muschietti-helmed film also had the No. 1 opening weekend for a fall release and was 2017’s No. 7 highest-grossing movie.

Soooooo, back to peeing my pants.

Today, Warner Bros. released the first look at IT: Chapter Two and it interestingly begins with a long clip from the film. Beverly Marsh, now played by Jessica Chastain, visits her old home where she was abused by her father.

Upon entering, Beverly soon discovers that it is now occupied by a sweet old woman who makes tea, bakes cookies and offers sage wisdom like, “But you know what they say about Derry, no one who dies here ever really dies.” Watch the chilling scene below:

Need that bathroom break yet? There is also a creepy first poster to accompany the trailer:


IT: Chapter Two, takes place 27 years after the events of the first film, as the members of the “Losers Club” have all grown up and moved away from Derry… until a devastating phone call brings them all back.

The adult versions of the “Losers Club” stars Jessica Chastain (Beverly Marsh), Bill Hader (Richie Tozier), James McAvoy (Bill Denbrough), Jay Ryan (Ben Hanscom), James Ransone (Eddie Kaspbrak), Isaiah Mustafa (Mike Hanlon) and Andy Bean (Stanley Uris).

The film is set to be released Sept. 6.

I’ll bring my adult diapers.
