Brand-new IT Chapter Two photos celebrate the Losers' Club reunion and tease an epic showdown with Pennywise. Andres Muschietti is bringing the movie and some other surprises down to San Diego Comic-Con next weekend, so it's nice to get a tease before some new footage drops. The director is pretty happy with the way that the highly anticipated sequel came together and says everything has been ramped up, from the horror elements to the comedic factors, it's all going to be bigger and better than the first chapter.
It Chapter Two is set 27 years after the events of the first movie and Pennywise the Dancing Clown is back in Derry. The Losers' Club are now adults and Pennywise is a lot more angry than he was when we last saw him, according to Andres Muschietti. Bill Denbrough (James McAvoy), Beverly Marsh (Jessica Chastain), Richie Tozier (Bill Hader), Ben Hanscom (Jay Ryan), Stanley Uris (Andy Bean), Mike Hanlon (Isaiah Mustafa), and Eddie Kaspbrak (James Ransone) are in for some pretty big surprises, courtesy of the evil supernatural clown.
In a recent interview, Andres Muschietti talked about how he had a lot more toys while making IT Chapter Two. When talking about toys, the director is referring to cameras and a Technocrane. He says, "On the first one, I was struggling to get a Technocrane on certain days." Things have changed a lot since the success of the first movie though. "Now the Technocrane is always there!," exclaims Muschietti. The cast was also interviewed and they kept their mouths shut when asked about how the upcoming sequel deviates from Stephen King' iconic source material.
Bill Hader couldn't say much about the adult life of Richie Tozier, but he did say, "It's not the same as the book." The actor didn't reveal much more and only teased by saying, "But it'll be a real mindblower." Jessica Chastain says the whole cast had a great time while making IT Chapter Two and says the actors were getting to know each other just like the reunited Losers' Club are doing on the screen. The first footage from the sequel was recently released and it was chilling, so it's nice to know they had some fun on the set.
As for Pennywise, Bill Skarsgard only says, "He's scarier and he's angrier." Skarsgard's take on the evil clown was pretty angry and scary last time, so IT Chapter Two sounds a bit crazier. "There's a couple of very brutal things in the film," says Skarsgard. Will we see Pennywise eat a baby this time around? It has been teased by Skarsgard, so it could very well end up happening when the movie hits theaters this fall. While we wait for San Diego Comic-con, you can check out the new images from IT Chapter Two below, thanks to Entertainment Weekly.
