Chapter Two first reactions call it a worthy Stephen King adaptation


In an interview with SFX Magazine (courtesy of GamesRadar), It Chapter Two director Andy Muschietti proclaimed that he's not only open to the idea of combining both King adaptations into one film but that there might be a few different versions!

The movie and its predecessor, 2017's smash hit It: Chapter One, are adapted from Stephen King's masterful 1986 novel. "I liked it, but didn't LOVE it", he wrote. There are some excellent set pieces (finale had me holding my breath at times) that got under my skin & I think the adult Losers are awesome.

Steven Weintraub, editor-in-chief at Collider, thought IT Chapter Two was awesome and said "the adult cast is flawless and [he] loved the way the film mixes in the old and new".

Chapter Two is one of the most anticipated horror movies in recent memory. A boring [and] bloated mess that spends too much time rehashing things from the first film.

More positive is Fox Force Five News critic Sean James, who calls the movie the best horror film of the year - a big call, given that Ari Aster's Midsommar came out a little under a month ago.

Bill Hader fans, get excited. James McAvoy stars as Bill, Oscar nominee Jessica Chastain (Zero Dark Thirty) as Beverly, Bill Hader as Richie, Isaiah Mustafa as Mike, Jay Ryan as Ben, James Ransone as Eddie, and Bill Skarsgård returning in the seminal role of Pennywise. The sequel will follow the last half of the novel, when the characters return to their hometown after 27 years as adults and face Pennywise once again.

Written by Gary Dauberman (IT, Annabelle Comes Home)-and featuring original Losers Wyatt Oleff, Jaeden Lieberher, Sophia Lillis, Finn Wolfhard, Jeremy Ray Taylor, Chosen Jacobs, and Jack Dylan Grazer reprising their roles through flashbacks-the film hits theaters on September 6, 2019. Bill Skarsgard, who frightened the viewers with his take on horror entity Pennywise the Clown, is back at it in the sequel.
