IT CHAPTER TWO merely in theaters September 6, 2019

Evil resurfaces in Derry as conductor Andy Muschietti reunites the Losers Club–young and adult–in a return to where it all began with “It Chapter Two.”

The cinema is Muschietti’s follow-up to 2017 ’s critically acclaimed and big worldwide box office punched “IT, ” which grossed over $700 million globally. Both redefining and transcending the category, “IT” became part of the racial zeitgeist as well as the highest-grossing horror film of all time.

Because every 27 years evil revisits the town of Derry, Maine, “It Chapter Two” brings the characters–who’ve long ago drive their separate ways–back together as adults, roughly three decades after the events of the first cinema.
