Pennywise is Back! (Re-cap Spoilers)
The terrifying clown, Pennywise, will be returning in this film of course to wreak havoc upon these poor souls. The 2017 predecessor to this film consisted of a band of young kids forming together to defeat their demons. In this case, their demons have manifested into Pennywise the clown. Pennywise plagues the small town of Derry, Maine. Children were disappearing one after another. That was until these youngsters formed “The Losers’ Club” in 1989. United they resisted the depths of the fear inside of them all. This shape-shifting monster, Pennywise, tortured these poor children to no end.
All this torment led to the kids relying on each other. Forming together to withstand their fears. They followed the fiend into its lair. Once cornered they were once again faced with the scary demons that haunted them in their dreams. However, they realized that if they conquer this fear, they could also conquer IT. By only cooperating, were they able to corner the monstrosity and emerge victorious. Unfortunately, they were unable to strike the final blow. It retreated deep into the abyss to fight another day.
The children escaped the lair and returned to their lives. Before the credits roll it shows them gathering together to make a promise. A promise to defeat Pennywise once and for all. According to myth, he comes back every 27 years to torment the world. As the screen dims, you can hear his laugh one last time to assure his eventual return.

Director Andrés Muschietti had plenty to say about the length of the movie as well:
“A movie is very different when you’re writing the script and you’re building a story compared to what the final product is,”
“At the beginning, when you’re writing and building the beats of the story, everything that you put in there seems very essential to the story. However, when you have the movie finally edited and it’s 4 hours long, you realize that some of the events and some of the beats can be easily lifted but the essence of the story remains intact.
“You cannot deliver a 4-hour movie because people will start to feel uncomfortable – no matter what they see – but we ended up having a movie that is 2 hours and 45 minutes, and the pacing is very good.
“Nobody who’s seen the movie has had any complaint.”
Muschietti also posted a few pictures accompanying the latest news releases. Updating the people through pictures of the set and cast members as well as some art for the movie.
Jessica Chastain, the actress for Beverly Marsh, also had plenty to share about the on-scene casting make-up she was wearing and art. She even said that a scene in It: Chapter Two
“might have the most blood in horror movie history”
And finally, the scariest clown ever known, Pennywise, has returned to haunt our thoughts and dreams again. He is shown in full attire preparing to doom these adults that were tormented as children. Hoisting himself and formulating a frightening plan for them.
