Have you been eagerly awaiting the first trailer for It: Chapter Two? Thankfully, you won’t have to wait much longer. Even though the first teaser for It hit the web back in March 2017 – ahead of the film’s September release – horror fans and Stephen King junkies have had to wait much longer this time around. True, Warner Bros. Pictures recently released a promotional photo of James McAvoy as an adult Bill, but they’ve kept any and all footage under wraps.
That’s all about to change, though. It’s now been confirmed that the first look for It: Chapter Two will be dropping on Thursday, May 9th, and as ComicBook.com reports, Warner Bros. has released a brand new countdown clock, which is counting down the time until the trailer arrives.
As expected, the countdown – which is actually a link to the YouTube URL where the video will be posted – doesn’t show much. As you can see below, the teaser pic features Pennywise the Clown’s hand holding a single red balloon, an image which has become synonymous with the series.
For those who’ve forgotten the events of the first It, here’s a bit of a refresher. The movie followed the exploits of the Losers Club – which consists of Bill Denbrough (Jaden Lieberher), Ben Hanscom (Jeremy Ray Taylor), Beverly Marsh (Sophia Lillis), Richie Tozier (Finn Wolfhard), Stanley Uris (Wyatt Oleff), Mike Hanlon (Chosen Jacobs), and Eddie Kaspbrak (Jack Dylan Grazer) – a ragtag group of friends that discovered It, an ancient, evil cosmic entity that often takes the form of Pennywise the Clown. After Bill’s younger brother fell victim to the mysterious creature, the group confronted It in the sewers beneath their hometown of Derry and sent the monster packing its bags.
It: Chapter Two picks up 27 years later, with the Losers Club (having grown up) returning to Derry to confront and defeat It once and for all. Seeing as how the kids have all grown up, the film’s producers sought the talent of a few noteworthy celebs, including James McAvoy, Jessica Chastain and Bill Hader. That being said, the child actors from the first film will also be making a return.
Thankfully, you won’t have to wait long to see the movie for yourself. Warner Bros. will release the first trailer for It: Chapter Two tomorrow at 12 p.m., with the full thing hitting theaters on September 6th.
