The Losers’ Club is heading back to Derry, Maine to face off against Pennywise the Clown (aka, IT) once again – this time, as adults. But can James McAvoy, Jessica Chastain, Bill Hader, Isaiah Mustafa, Jay Ryan, James Ransone, and Andy Bean recapture the lightning-in-a-bottle chemistry of the younger cast from 2017’s mega-successful It? (Is such a thing even possible?) Is this sequel scarier than the original? And does the film earn its nearly three-hour run time?

Stephen King‘s It is a hefty book. There’s so much story, in fact, that both adaptations – the 1990 miniseries, and the 2017 and 2019 movies – had to split the material into two parts. But any reader of the book can tell you that It works best as one big epic story. Thankfully, it sounds like It and It Chapter Two director Andy Muschietti agrees – and he’s cutting together an It supercut containing both films. Here’s hoping we actually get to see this supercut, and that it doesn’t go the way of Quentin Tarantino’s never-released Kill Bill: The Whole Bloody Affair.

Back in 2017, New Line Cinema’s adaptation of Stephen King’s classic novel It surprised everyone by opening with a massive $123.4 million, and it rode that wave to a $327.4 million domestic total, and a $700.3 million global total.

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.
