So, what’s the story this time
Well, from the trailer it looks like Pennywise is to the town of Derry after 27 years and more importantly Pennywise now has a history. It seems from the trailer that Pennywise was formerly a man who worked at a circus.
The movie will also carry forward Beverly’s love story. we see in the trailer that Beverly re-reads the poem that Ben wrote for her all those years ago. In the original novel by Stephen King, Beverly and Ben end up together. It will be interesting to see what the film does with this situation.
This goes without saying that the movie will be scarier than ever. The evil clown will be more terrifying and blood-thirsty than ever before.
From the trailers, the next IT movie looks very promising just a few months from now to see if Muschietti’s movie and his cast have delivered the goods, as guaranteed
