The gang, now all grown up, is reuniting in Derry after nearly three decades years apart… and we all know what happens every 27 years in Derry. This first trailer really sets the tone for the next battle with evil.
The 2017 reboot was a surprise after years after not so great King adaptations. It is a masterful example of horror, and is truly terrifying; based on this trailer we’re going to get more of that. In an interview with Jimmy Fallon earlier this year, Jessica Chastain said that this may be the bloodiest movie ever made…
I’m gonna say something and I think I’m gonna be in trouble but I’m gonna do it. It might be a spoiler, but in the movie there’s a scene that someone said on set that it’s the most blood that’s ever been in a horror film in a scene. The next day I was pulling [fake] blood out of my eyeballs.
I’m totally in.
