“You know what they say, no one who ever dies here really dies.”
The Losers Club is back in Derry and all grown up, and so is Pennywise, the evil and murderous clown of their childhood nightmares.
The film is Andy Muschietti’s follow-up to 2017’s critically acclaimed and massive worldwide box office hit “IT,” which made $327M in the US over $700M globally, making it one of the highest grossing horror movies of all time. The first film told the first half of the story from the timeline of the club as kids, the sequel brings the club back as adults.
