When Andy Muschietti's It: Chapter One arrived back in 2017, we really didn't know what to expect. Would it live up to the source material? Would it top the beloved miniseries adaptation of the early '90s? Would Pennywise the Dancing Clown actually be, y'know, scary? There was much we didn't know, and an endless stream of questionable Stephen King adaptations had given us reason to be skeptical.
Turns out, there was nothing to fear: Muschietti's film absolutely lived up to the source material, delivering a truly terrifying Pennywise and a pitch-perfect Losers' Club. It wasn't entirely without faults, of course, but it played like gangbusters, and went on to become the biggest horror film of all time with an astonishing $700M in worldwide ticket sales.
And now it's almost time for It: Chapter Two.
This is the first trailer for Andy Muschietti's It: Chapter Two, one of 2019's most highly-anticipated movies. It has everything going for it - a director who's proven himself with the material, a top-shelf cast (Jessica Chastain! Bill Hader! James McAvoy!), an audience that's fully primed to see how the story plays out (are they gonna do the big spider or what?) - and now it's got one helluva first trailer.
The poster, well...the poster's just alright.
In just a bit, we're gonna go through this bad boy with a fine tooth comb and see what we can see. Hold tight for that, and - in the meantime - do feel free to hit the comments to let us know what you think. Feeling this as much as the last one? Think they'll break records with the number of people who watch this trailer today, as they did with the last one? Who do you think'll end up being the standout from this cast? Sound off below, and stay tuned for a more in-depth trailer breakdown.
It: Chapter Two hits theaters on September 6th.
