With only four months until the film's release, it's nearly time for the Losers' Club to return to Derry and face the evil that is Pennywise in the first trailer for IT Chapter Two, which gives us our first real taste of this year’s sequel.
The trailer begins with Jessica Chastain’s Beverly Marsh returning to the Derry home she grew up in, where she has an encounter with a unusual and terrifying woman who with a connection to Pennywise.
After that, the trailer continues in typical teaser fashion, with a montage of clips showing the adult member of the Losers' Club and the re-introduction of the Dancing Clown.
Of course, the film looks utterly phenomenal and undoubtedly creepy!
