At long last the sequel to the box office hit, It, finally has a trailer. Check out the trailer to It: Chapter 2 below:
Different Type of Trailer
Is any one else freaked out? Before we even get into the trailer itself, there are two things they did differently that really makes this an awesome trailer. The first is the run time. When you see the tag “teaser trailer” you generally get a 30 second to 1 minute trailer with flashes of footage from the film. There is no story and nothing makes sense, yet the images are supposed to get you psyched for the next trailer and ultimately the movie itself. This “teaser” has a run time of nearly 3 minutes.
The second thing that is brilliant about this trailer is that the first 2:15 of this trailer is not a trailer at all. It is an actual scene from the movie. Why is this a big deal? Horror movies usually just flash a bunch of scary images and flashes of things to make you jump. By running a scene, it really sets up exactly how freaky and skin crawling this movie is actually going to be as it full immerses you into a small segment of what is to come.
Inside the IT Chapter 2 Trailer
The first movie was not much of a horror movie, so mush as a great story with some scary parts. 27 years later, this chapter promises to scare and set nerves on edge. A simple conversation between Beverly and an old lady has viewers skittish and jumpy the whole time with very little actually happening.
Then in the final 45 seconds we get the flashes from the rest of the movie. The kids form Chapter 1 have returned to Derry and must now deal not only with Pennywise, but leftover feelings from 27 years ago.
Sporting an all-star cast of James McAvoy, Jessica Chastain, Bill Hader, and Bill Skarsgard and Pennywise, this trailer promises an epic follow-up to the 2017 blockbuster.
Box Office Expectations
It opened to a September/Fall record of $123.4 million, beating the old record set by Hotel Transylvania 2 in 2015 of just $48.4 million. The kids were the best part of the original, but with the all-star cast, the returning kids, and high expectations, It: Chapter 2 is poised to set new records upon release.
It: Chapter 2 is due out September 6, 2019.
