it chapter 2

The final trailer for Andy Muschietti's upcoming horror film It: Chapter Two has arrived, and the intensity levels are absolutely through the roof. Send help.

The first trailer focused predominantly on a slow, increasingly uncomfortable confrontation, but the new one gives away more reveals and offers a faster pace.

The second half of Stephen King's legendary 1986 novel It is explored in It: Chapter Two, in the fictional setting of Derry, Maine. The 1,169-page book is fairly monstrous, to say the least.

Muschietti's 2017 It was a massive hit in the cinema, featuring seven Derry kids becoming aware of a horrible monster preying on their town. The kids set out to fight it, stopping our hearts in the process.

The monster is a shapeshifter, but wears the face of a dancing clown named Pennywise normally. Bill Skarsgård's acting skills as the clown have honestly ruined our lives forever.

While the children somehow defeat Pennywise, It: Chapter Two is set 27 years later and they learn pretty quick that Pennywise is still alive. They therefore decide to return to Derry to fight him one final time.

The first It scared the sh*t out of us, but the latest film looks like it'll have a similar dynamic of Pennywise attacking the kids in turn.

The adult version of the 'Losers' Club' (James McAvoy, Jessica Chastain, Bill Hader, Jay Ryan, James Ransone, Andy Bean, and Isaiah Mustafa) face Pennywise once again in isolated settings before the final battle.

There'll be plenty of screaming, that much is certain. It lands in cinemas on September 6, prepare the night lights for sleep.

Lads, It's here. (It's here…get it?)

Horror fans have been spoiled as of late with the insanely good scary movies hitting cinemas – from the likes of Hereditary to Jordan Peele's Get Out and Us and even another installment of the horror OG franchise that is Halloween.

So when Stephen Kings It was remade in 2017, it came at the perfect time..and went on to gross $700 million worldwide. 

Now the sequel has arrived and judging by the trailer, it looks devilishly good.

The first movie centered on a group of misfits or ''Losers'' as they were dubbed in 1980s Derry,  Maine who all banded together to fight Pennywise the clown.

Now, 30 years later they're all back as adults…but Pennywise is still lurking. 

What made the first installment such a success was the chemistry between the young leads who effortlessly sparked off each other and were…genuinely funny. 

It wasn't that scary – think more of a Stranger Things/Goonies vibe but still with some jump scares.

The cast for Chapter 2 looks unreal – we've got Jessica Chastain, James McEvoy and Bill Hader making the line up as the grown-up Losers.

What's cool is the kids picked what actors they wanted to play their older characters and Bill Hader as grown-up Richie was young Richie's (Finn Wolfhard's) personal pick for the role.

The trailer itself looks creepy AF – it opens on an old lady who isn't as she seems.

The kids appear in flashback moments and it looks like it's gonna be a lot scarier than the first one

Director Andy Muschietti did promise that the sequel would be more intense than the first film and it looks like he delivered.  

Also – it's gotten the best endorsement it can – author of the novel Stephen King has openly praised the flick.

He took to social media to say, ''Looking forward to IT CHAPTER 2? You should be. I've seen it, and it's terrific. The trailer is coming Thursday, at noon. You'll float.''

The writer is notoriously tough to impress – he famously hated The Shining, so if he likes this movie what more could you want?

IT: Chapter Two hits cinemas on September 6 – see you there.
