Never being one to go and actually see a scary movie in theaters I will have to say, that last year I was very happy with my choice to go and see It. Even if I did cover my eyes and have a small panic attack during the projector scene, I really enjoyed myself. I think that surprising enjoyment and fun that I felt with the first installment is why I am so excited for It Chapter 2 to hit theaters next year.
With a release date of September 6, 2019, next year’s most anticipated film is a wrap for actress Jessica Chastain. It Chapter 2 director Andy Muschietti took to his Instagram to share a bloody photo of he and Jessica Chastain on set. It really feels as though we just started reading about casting on the project and just like that, it seems that filming is drawing to a close in the near future.
Setting box office records last year for the highest opening weekend for September and for a horror movie release with an estimated 123 million made, you can see why It Chapter 2 is one of the most anticipated movies of 2019.
A very tight lid has been kept on the set just as it was the first time around we at least know that the second film is going to take place 27 years later and show us the Losers Club as adults. Though everything from set regarding the exact plot seems to be hush-hush, it appears we can count on director Andy Muschietti to give us a small glimpse behind the curtain when the mood is right.
I am really excited to see what this new chapter will bring to the story that some of us already know from Tim Curry’s days as Pennywise. Having read It myself, there really is enough content for a third cinematic chapter, so we’ll see how this second installment goes!
