One of the biggest Stephen King adaptations in recent years happened to be 2017’s IT: Chapter 1. The film revitalized the character of Pennywise and introduced an all-new interest in the lore of author Stephen King. Now the time has come for IT: Chapter 2, which is set to adapt the second chunk of Stephen King’s epic horror novel IT.
At long last, the trailer is hitting this Thursday, and now King himself is promoting the movie.
The iconic horror writer took to Twitter, announcing that he’s apparently not just seen a copy of IT: Chapter 2 – but that it’s “terrific.”
“Looking forward to IT CHAPTER 2? You should be. I’ve seen it, and it’s terrific. The trailer is coming Thursday, at noon. You’ll float.”

It’s definitely exciting news, especially now that King also revealed the specific hour in which we can expect the new trailer.
And if Stephen King’s word wasn’t good enough for you, actress Jessica Chastain who was on set happened to state she shot the bloodiest scene ever in a horror film.
“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.”
In the new film which was directed by Andy Muschietti…
“Because every 27 years evil revisits the town of Derry, Maine, IT: Chapter Two brings the characters—who’ve long since gone their separate ways—back together as adults, nearly three decades after the events of the first film.”
IT: Chapter 2 will hit theaters on September 19, 2019.
