IT: Chapter Two is not too far away from popping up in a sewer near you, and this time the Losers’ Club are all grown-up.
But the more things change, the more they stay the same, and by that we mean they are still being stalked by a demented clown named Pennywise.
Entertainment Weekly sat down with the stars portraying the adult versions of the characters, and they’ve also given us a brand new look at the film too.
In this image, we’ve got the characters being played by Jessica Chastain, Bill Hader, Isaiah Mustafa and co standing opposite James McAvoy’s Bill, who lost his brother George in the first movie.
McAvoy describes his character, who has become a Hollywood screenwriter in Los Angeles, as “Stephen King’s avatar”. From the image, it looks like he is one of the last Losers to be recruited for the fight against the returning killer clown.
Elsewhere, Hader describes his version of Richie as so different from the book that it will be a real “mindblower”, while Mustafa’s Mike is the only one to stay in Derry.
“Mike sees how Derry is very special in a dark way,” Mustafa says. “He’s trying to figure out what the hell’s going on in this town and what he can do to put an end to this cycle. It’s an obsession for him.”
How is he the only one who can see what is going on? Turns out everyone else has literally forgotten!
“When you leave Derry, something happens where you forget it all. I think it’s like a [power] of Pennywise’s,” adds McAvoy.
“Because if everybody could remember what he gets up to every 27 years through history, we’d go, ‘Hey, Derry’s really f**ked up, we should do something about that. We should send in the f**king Army!'”
IT: Chapter 2 is due to be released on September 6.
