A couple of years ago, It became by far the highest-grossing Stephen King flick yet – and there have been a lot of them! It: Chapter 2 looks set to break that record.
This time, and more in keeping with King’s novel, the Losers’ Club are all grown up, bearing striking resemblances to Bill Hader, James McAvoy, James Ransone, Jay Ryan, Jessica Chastain and Isaiah Mustafa. That scary clown Pennywise also returns, again played by Bill Skarsgård. 27 years have elapsed since events of the first chapter in Derry, Maine, “until a devastating phone call brings them back”.
It: Chapter 2 is set to creep out audiences – and hit the bottom lines of clowns everywhere – when it floats into Australian cinemas on September 5.
