News, Rumors and Theories
Readers Know What Happens: The plot is no secret to anyone who has read King's horrible novel. The losers' club, which looks after children who fought the killer clown Pennywise, learns he's back 27 years later, and they're the only ones who can try to stop him. King Roman weaved the two ages together, but the movies separate the children who fight Pennywise in the first film of their adult versions doing the same. And there were some changes to King's novel in the first movie, so there may be some surprises even for loyal King readers.
More about Pennywise: In 2017, Bill Skarsgård told Metro UK that this second film will explore its spooky character even more. "It's a different story," he said. "But I'm looking forward to delving deeper into the character, because there's more discovery about who Pennywise is." More specifically, the actor has discussed a disturbing scene that shows a less clownish Pennywise in the 1600s that was shot for the first movie and was not used. Some wonder if this will be included in Chapter Two.
Do not Be Like Mike: Director Muschietti said in 2017 that the character of Mike, the one Losers & # 39; club member who lives in Derry, will be different from the novel. "My idea of Mike in the second film is a bit darker from the book," he told Entertainment Weekly. "I want to make his character a central character that brings them all together, but staying in Derry took its toll, I want him to be a junkie, a librarian junkie, and when the second movie starts, he's a wreck . "
Scenes We May See: After the first film was filmed, producer Barbara Muschietti told reporters that some of the scenes did not fit into the budget for this film, but might yield chapter two would. One scene, a massacre at nightclub Black Spot, could even open the new movie. "This sequence with the Black Spot, we think it will be a great opening for the next movie," Muschietti said at the time. Whether it's the opening scene or not, we'll have to wait and see.
First footage: A short excerpt from the movie was shown at the San Diego Comic-Con in July 2018. It's unlikely that it will go online, but there are summaries if you need to know what was shown.
