It Chapter 2 trailer

The trailer for It Chapter Two has been released, teasing Pennywise the Dancing Clown's terrifying return to the big screen.

Jessica Chastain plays a grown Beverly Marsh in the majority of the clip, which lasts almost three minutes.

Marsh can be seen returning to her hometown of Derry, Maine, where Pennywise terrorised her and her friends years prior.

Chastain's Marsh chats with a seemingly innocuous older woman who now lives in her childhood house – and turns out to be a much more terrifying entity.

James McAvoy, Bill Hader, Jay Ryan, Isaiah Mustafa, James Ransone and Andy Bean star as grown-up members of the Losers Club, formerly the group of children who confronted Pennywise in the 2017 film (and in Stephen King's original novel).

Bill Skarsgård, of course, reprises his role as Pennywise in the film, which is set 27 years after the events depicted in the first movie.

It Chapter Two will be released on 6 September 2019.
