Warner Bros has released the first trailer for It: Chapter Two, and hoo boy, it looks just as creepy as its predecessor. The Losers’ Club is all grown up—and now they’re Jessica Chastain, James McAvoy, and Bill Hader!—but when they return to Derry, they might as well be back in Pennywise’s clutches.
The trailer spends most of its time on one scene between Chastain’s Beverly Marsh and an old woman who starts out kindly and… well, you should check it out for yourself:
But there are also plenty of shots of the rest of the cast, ruminating on their younger selves and delving into all manner of disturbing clown imagery, from face paint to carnivals.
From Warner Bros:
Evil resurfaces in Derry as director Andy Muschietti reunites the Losers Club—young and adult—in a return to where it all began with It: Chapter Two.
Because every 27 years evil revisits the town of Derry, Maine, It: Chapter Two brings the characters—who’ve long since gone their separate ways—back together as adults, nearly three decades after the events of the first film.
Oscar nominee Jessica Chastain (Zero Dark Thirty, Mama) stars as Beverly, James McAvoy (Split, Glass) as Bill, Bill Hader (HBO’s Barry, The Skeleton Twins) as Richie, Isaiah Mustafa (TV’s Shadowhunters: The Mortal Instruments) as Mike, Jay Ryan (TV’s Mary Kills People) as Ben, James Ransone (HBO’s The Wire) as Eddie, and Andy Bean (Allegiant, Starz’ Power) as Stanley. Reprising their roles as the original members of the Losers Club are Jaeden Martell as Bill, Wyatt Oleff as Stanley, Jack Dylan Grazer as Eddie, Finn Wolfhard as Richie, Sophia Lillis as Beverly, Chosen Jacobs as Mike, and Jeremy Ray Taylor as Ben. Bill Skarsgård returns in the seminal role of Pennywise.
It: Chapter Two comes to theaters September 6.
