Trailer released for ‘It: Chapter Two,’ out in September

Pennywise the Dancing Clown returns in "It: Chapter Two," which will open Sept. 6, 2019.
The first poster has been released for "It: Chapter Two," the second film in the two-part adaptation of Stephen King’s classic horror novel "It."

We don’t know the extended-range forecast for late summer, but rain or no, there’s a good chance things will be floating in Derry, Maine.

In the words of a certain creepy clown, “We all float down here.”

The first teaser trailer has been released for the second chapter in director Andy Muschietti’s adaptation of Stephen King’s “It,” about a murderous creature that lives in Derry’s sewers and terrorizes its residents every few decades.

The second half of the story will shift focus to the members of the Loser’s Club as adults, returning to their hometown in order to put Pennywise the Dancing Clown down for good.

It stars Jessica Chastain, James McAvoy, Bill Hader and Javier Botet, along with Bill Skarsgård as the titular “It.”

The trailer doesn’t give much away, so there’s no telling if — mild book spoilers ahead — Muschietti plans to delve into Pennywise’s interdimensional origins, but it does stay true to at least one scene from the book and original TV adaptation: Beverly Marsh (Chastain) returns to her childhood home to find what she believes is a nice, elderly woman living there. But as their conversation progresses, things begin to get more and more unsettling as Beverly realizes she may not be talking to a woman, or even a human.

“It: Chapter Two” opens Sept. 6.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
