AceShowbiz - Before "It Chapter Two" arrives in theaters this fall, Warner Bros. Pictures has brought to movie fans a final trailer for the horror sequel. Debuted at San Diego Comic-Con, the approximately two-and-a-half minute video reveals more of Pennywise's terrifying tricks.
The trailer opens with a throwback scene where young Beverly (Sophia Lillis) rides on the back of Bill's (Jaeden Martell) bike as they cruise around their neighborhood in Maine, Derby. Adult Mike (Isaiah Mustafa) says in voiceover how his memories about the town never fade from his mind, albeit not the pretty ones.
More than two decades later, the now grown-up members of the Losers' Club reunite to keep their oath after a tragedy struck one of their own, as hinted with a bloody bathtub scene in the video. They look terrified upon realizing that Pennywise has returned, but vow to stop it from claiming more victims.
The video then jumps to a scene showing adult Bill (James McAvoy) being trapped in a maze of mirrors. Bill stumbles upon a young boy who is about to be eaten by the evil clown, but he can't reach him because there's a glass wall between them. During the movie panel at Comic-Con, McAvoy admitted that filming the scene was "like a nightmare... absolutely horrific. There was no fun in it."
Bev, meanwhile, faces her childhood fear as she finds herself in the girl's bathroom stall, where her school tormentors would pour trash and tampons over her head. This time, however, the place slowly fills with blood and Bev is fully covered in blood.
"For 27 years, I've dreamt of you. I've craved you. I missed you," Pennywise says, calling upon his nemesis, as the Losers' Club members return to the haunted house and to the skewer. "I've seen all of us dying, It consumes us from the inside until we don't have a choice anymore," Bev says during their reunion.
There's a shot of someone falling into what looks like a deep hole or a grave, and Bev getting drowned by one of Pennywise's incarnations. Adult Henry Bowers appears to have lost his sanity due to the trauma he faced as a child, and gets freaked out when seeing a red balloon. The trailer ends with a haunting image of one of the clown's followers who paints his face in It's likeness and scratches his own eyes.
Bill Skarsgard reprises his role as Pennywise, with Bill Hader starring as adult Richie Tozier, James Ransone playing the grown-up version of Eddie Kaspbrak, Jay Ryan as adult Ben Hanscom and Andy Bean portraying the present day Stan Uris. Finn Wolfhard, Chosen Jacobs, Jeremy Ray Taylor, Jack Dylan Grazer and Wyatt Oleff also return as the younger versions of the Losers' Club.
Still directed by Andy Muschietti and written by Gary Dauberman, based the 1986 novel by Stephen King, the "It" sequel promises a closure to the Losers' Club's scary encounters with the evil clown. It is set to bow in the U.S. on September 6.
