Bill Skarsgard returns to the role of Pennywise in the sequel It: Chapter Two and the Internet is freaking out over the new movie trailer. Released on Thursday, May 9, 2019, the video has gone viral and features Jessica Chastain as Beverly Marsh who is one of the members of the Losers’ Club traumatized over her childhood experiences with the terrorizing clown Pennywise.
First introduced to the world in Stephen King’s 1986 novel It, the movie had been developed into a television mini-series before gracing the silver screen in 2017. The horror movie was a huge success and grossed far more than its original budget. It was nominated for over 40 awards and won multiple categories.
Jessica Chastain’s character Beverly Marsh was sexually abused by her father. She is close friends with the other members of the Losers’ Club including Eddie Kaspbrak, Ben Hanscom, Bill Denbrough, Mike Hanlon, Stan Uris, and Richie Tozier.
The rest of the Losers’ Club is played by the following: James Ransone as Eddie Kaspbrak, Jay Ryan as Ben Hanscom, James McAvoy as Bill Denbrough, Isaiah Mustafa as Mike Hanlon, Andy Bean as Stan Uris, and Bill Hader as Richie Tozier.
