Pennywise the Clown took the world by storm in 2017, scaring folks of all ages. After its massive box office success. It was granted a sequel. Just like it’s predecessor back in the early 90s. WB held their panel at CinemaCon today and they brought out their big guns! One of them being Pennywise, as he danced his way into everyones nightmares in the first official footage that debuted during the panel. Check out the description courtesy of Variety.
In footage screened at the exhibition industry trade show, Beverly Marsh (Jessica Chastain), the sole female member of the Losers’ Club returns to her childhood home only to find out that her abusive father has died in the years since she left town. There she is invited in by the new resident, who makes her tea and cookies. Slowly she begins to realize something isn’t right. Insects form on the window in a peculiar pattern, the old woman disappears into the kitchen and disrobes while dancing maniacally.
“You know what they say about Derry,” the woman says at one point. “No one who dies here ever really dies.”
“It: Chapter Two” is directed by Andy Muschietti, who oversaw the first film. It co-stars James McAvoy, Bill Hader, Jay Ryan, Isaiah Mustafa, James Ransone, Andy Bean, and Bill Skarsgård, who returns as Pennywise.
In addition to showing Chastain’s spine-tingling return home, Warner Bros. showed footage of Pennywise floating through the air against a sea of red balloons, as well as a reunion of the Losers Club at a Chinese restaurant. There was also a shot of them descending into the town’s sewers where Pennywise lives.
When Muschietti came to CinemaCon in 2017 to tease the first “It,” he promised the crowd of theater owners it would be so scary they would “shit [their] pants.”
“I’m going to double down on that statement,” he said during the footage tease on Tuesday.
