It: Chapter 2 Scares Up Chilling First Trailer

The first trailer for It: Chapter 2 reunites the Losers Club in Derry, where they face new horrors from their old friend Pennywise.

More than half the trailer centers on Beverly "Bev" Marsh, who pays a visit to her childhood home. When she knocks on the door, an old woman greets her and invites her inside. As kind as the old woman appears, she slowly begins to show some odd behaviors. Bev soon notices something is off, but just a moment too late. Before she can excuse herself, the old woman twists herself into some eldrich horror that chases Bev down the hall.

From there, her old friends team up with her to face Pennywise the Clown, the ancient evil that has plagued their hometown for decades. The footage largely shows the characters remembering their twisted childhoods or reacting to some off-screen horror. Pennywise makes his grand return towards the end of the trailer, where he lures a new victim with an old trick. Oh, and there are red balloons -- lots and lots of red balloons.

It: Chapter 2 stars Bill Skarsgård, James McAvoy, Jessica Chastain, Jay Ryan, Bill Hader, Isaiah Mustafa, James Ransone, Andy Bean, Teach Grant, Jess Weixler, Will Beinbrink, Xavier Dolan, Jaden Lieberher, Sophia Lillis, Jeremy Ray Taylor, Finn Wolfhard, Chosen Jacobs, Jack Dylan Grazer, Wyatt Oleff and Nicholas Hamilton. The film is scheduled to be released on Sept. 6.
