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?
The social media embargo has lifted, so you know what that means: time to round up some reactions into an It Chapter 2 early buzz article. Here’s what the critics are saying about director Andy Muschietti‘s newest horror film. Read More »
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. That was enough to make it the highest grossing horror film of all time, not to mention having the biggest opening weekend ever for September and the entire fall season. If all goes well, it sounds like the It: Chapter Two box office totals will be right on par with the first. Check out the early predictions below. Read More »

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 »

Pennywise the dancing clown is back in a few months with It Chapter Two…and we can’t wait to make his demented acquaintance again. The mood in the Spreckels Theatre in San Diego was heightened before moderator Conan O’Brien took the stage, but it approached something resembling a rock concert when the brand new trailer for Warner Bros. and New Line Cinema’s hotly-anticipated horror sequel premiered. By the time director Andy Muschietti and the cast (the seven members of the “Losers’ Club,” all grown-up) took the stage, the follow-up to the most successful horror film of all time had the audience in the palm of its hand.
By the time you read this, that new trailer will probably be online. But the third annual “ScareDiego” event (a new-ish Comic-Con tradition I hope sticks around for some time) had a lot more to offer everyone in attendance. Several clips from the film screened, showcasing a sequel that looks funny, frightening and offers more of the same…but in a good way. If it’s not broken, why fix it? If this footage is any indication, this movie is going to make a bajillion dollars.
