Jessica Chastain’s Beverly anchors the first trailer for September 2019 horror movie “It: Chapter Two”.

Now a successful fashion designer, she’s joined by the remaining members of a reconvened Losers Club.

FEATURED STORIES

There’s horror novelist Bill (James McAvoy, “Split”), radio DJ Richie (Bill Hader, “Trainwreck”), local librarian Mike (Old Spice guy Isiah Mustafa, “Shadowhunters”), architect Ben (Jay Ryan, “Top of the Lake”), limo business boss Eddie (James Ransone, “Sinister”) and accountant Stanley (Andy Bean, “Here and Now”).

They’re back in the remote town of Derry to deal with the return of Pennywise (Bill Skarsgård), an evil entity active every 27 years.

This first look contains plenty of callbacks to the first film sprinkled throughout, not least Beverly’s old apartment figuring in the trailer’s first scene; the elderly Mrs. Kirsch’s chest wound, a giant lumberjack statue, that immense volume of blood, and an enormous sewer pipe among them.

Along with Bill Skarsgård, the first movie’s younger cast also return as the main characters’ younger selves, while Andy Muschietti retains his director’s role.

Released in September 2017, “It: Chapter One” accumulated $700 million at the international box office, becoming one of the most successful R-rated movies of all time in the process.

“It: Chapter Two” is due to begin its international launch the week of Sept. 6, 2019. JB
