Stephen King's It - Losers Club

There’s always been a caution about working with kids in show business, mostly because some of them can be difficult to work with due to their penchant for simply being kids. But there’s another challenge that comes with utilizing kids who are on the cusp of hitting puberty, especially if you have a franchise of films, and that’s growing up. In the case of It Chapter 2, director Andy Muschietti confirmed that the Warner Bros. Pictures and New Line Cinema reserved money in the sequel’s budget to to ensure the kids looked exactly as young as they did in the first movie. Read More »

It Chapter 2 fan art

The posters for Warner Bros.’ upcoming It: Chapter Two have been a little spotty so far – some good, some not-so-good – but director Andy Muschietti did such a great job with It back in 2017 that nothing could keep us from returning to Derry, Maine and seeing the Losers Club reunite to try to take down Pennywise the Dancing Clown once and for all.

We were already pumped to head back to the world Stephen King created in his 1986 novel, but this batch of It: Chapter Two fan posters, all winners of an official Warner Bros. contest, have gotten us even more excited to step back into that creepy universe. Read More »

 

it chapter two trailer

Get ready to return home to Derry, Maine with the It Chapter Two trailer. The members of The Losers’ Club are all grown up, but they can’t escape their childhood fears. With It Chapter Two, director Andy Muschietti completes his adaptation of Stephen King‘s tome of terror that started with 2017’s surprise blockbuster It. Unlike most King movie sequels, It Chapter Two is actually still working with the author’s source material, with the scripts for this film, and 2017’s It, splitting up the lengthy text of the book. Watch the It Chapter Two trailer below.

it chapter 2 trailer viral marketing

Our patience is about to be rewarded: the It Chapter 2 trailer is dropping this week.

it chapter 2 first look

Behold! The first official look at It Chapter 2! Featuring James McAvoy as…James McAvoy. Okay, the actor is actually playing the adult version of Bill Denbrough, but when you boil this pic down, it’s pretty much James McAvoy, rocking a plaid shirt. And possibly on a bike. A silver bike, if you will. McAvoy is one of the many impressive cast members playing the adult Losers’ Club in the upcoming horror sequel, and while this isn’t a mind-blowing image, we’ll take what we can get. See the It Chapter 2 first look below.

It: Chapter 2

I didn’t initially think splitting Stephen King‘s gargantuan novel It into two separate movies was a good idea, but the record-breaking box office numbers of last year’s It: Chapter 1 was proof enough that Warner Bros. made the right call…at least financially. Creatively? Well, that still remains to be seen.

The upcoming sequel will pick up with the Losers’ Club as adults nearly 30 years after temporarily defeating Pennywise, and while we knew things are going to get “transdimensional” in It: Chapter 2, some new quotes from the screenwriter have given us an idea of just how far into Crazy Town the filmmakers are planning to go. Will audiences be willing to go along for the ride, or will they reject the inter-dimensional weirdness at the story’s climax? Read More »
