AceShowbiz - Here's the highly-anticipated first teaser trailer for "It Chapter Two". Set 27 years after events in the 2017 movie, the sequel follows the grown-up members of the Losers' Club who reunite in Maine, Derby and learn the ugly fact that the city remains unsafe for them.
The adult Beverly (Jessica Chastain) is the first to be shown having an encounter with Pennywise again when she revisits her childhood home. The shape-shifting clown disguises himself as an old lady who now lives in the house and invites Beverly to take a look around while having some tea. "But you know what they say about Derry, no one who dies here ever really dies," the old lady says and flashes a creepy smirk afterward.
The Losers' Club members are then seen walking around the streets they used to pass by as kids, but when they are separated they have these chilling encounters with Pennywise. Like how they cornered the evil clown before, they have to face it together again.
The terrors aside, the video teases the love story between Beverly and Bill (James McAvoy) that's apparently not over yet and is back more than two decades later.
Bill Hader stars as adult Richie Tozier, Isaiah Mustafa plays adult Mike Hanlon, James Ransone is the grown-up version of Eddie Kaspbrak, Jay Ryan is adult Ben Hanscom and Andy Bean portrays the present day Stan Uris. The child actors, including Sophia Lillis, Finn Wolfhard, Chosen Jacobs, Jeremy Ray Taylor, Jack Dylan Grazer and Wyatt Oleff also return, while Bill Skarsgard reprises his role as Pennywise.
Skarsgard said Pennywise has changed over the course of 27 years, and it's not a good thing. "He's been doing this forever really, so he doesn't change in the sense that you would look differently. He looks however he wants to look for any particular prey at the time, but I do think there's a change," he told Entertainment Weekly in a recent interview.
The change is mostly attributed to his experience of fear for the first time in the first movie. "His last line - 'Fear...' - is him experiencing it for the first time, and he's sort of shocked and perplexed and surprised. Like, what is this?" the actor said. "He's inflicted fear on his prey, and he's very focused on fear, but he's never experienced it himself. Now he's experienced something that he has been inflicting on others and ... there's a shift leading into the second movie."
Skarsgard went on teasing, "It fuels hatred and anger towards the kids, who will be adults in this one, so I think there might be an even more vicious Pennywise. He's really going after it."
Still directed by Andy Muschietti and written by Gary Dauberman, based the 1986 novel by Stephen King, the "It" sequel is heading into theaters across the nation on September 6.
