Warner Bros. Pictures is sitting out this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, but one of its most anticipated films, ‘It: Chapter Two’ will be represented at the ScareDiego event. That makes it the only upcoming WB film project that will have a presence at SDCC this year, and it also happens to have landed the cover of Entertainment Weekly‘s Comic-Con special issue… twice! The magazine will offer two covers– one featuring the grown-up Losers Club, and one featuring a closeup of returning menace Pennywise the Clown (Bill Skarsgård). The magazine also features brand new images of the new cast– Jessica Chastain as Beverly Marsh, James McAvoy as Bill Denbrough, Bill Hader as Richie Tozier, Andy Bean as Stanley Uris, James Ransone as Eddie Kaspbrak, Jay Ryan as Ben Hanscom, and Isaiah Mustafa as Mike Hanlon.
The younger cast from the first movie will also appear via flashbacks– Sophia Lillis as Beverly, Jaeden Martell as Bill, Finn Wolfhard as Richie, Wyatt Oleff as Stanley, Jack Dylan Grazer as Eddie, Jeremy Ray Taylor as Ben, and Chosen Jacobs as Mike.
Check out the two covers below:
And here are some still images to tease you before the release of the film:
The Losers Club reassembles in Derry, 27 years after their last encounter with It, who they defeated but didn’t destroy when they were teens.
The Losers are called back by Mike, the one Loser who never left Derry, and is, therefore, the first to become aware that It has returned. Says Mustafa:
“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.”
The rest of the Losers have forgotten the events of their childhoods. Says McAvoy:
“When you leave Derry, something happens where you forget it all. I think it’s like a [power] of Pennywise’s. Because if everybody could remember what he gets up to every 27 years through history, we’d go, ‘Hey, Derry’s really f—ed up, we should do something about that. We should send in the f—ing Army!”
In addition to Skarsgård and the Losers Club(s), the cast includes: Jess Weixler as Bill’s wife, Hollywood starlet, Audra Phillips; Will Beinbrink as Beverly’s abusive husband, Rogan; and Teach Grant as the grown-up version of psychopath bully Henry Bowers, portrayed by Nicholas Hamilton in the first.
‘It: Chapter Two’ returns to terrorize audiences in theaters on September 6.
