It Chapter Two Runtime, Box Office Prediction and IMAX TV Spot

-

We’ve got several updates about Warner Bros. Pictures‘ highly-anticipated It Chapter Two today. We’ll start with the film’s runtime, which the British Board of Film Classification has confirmed will be two hours and 49 minutes. The first film was about two hours and 15 minutes.

You can also watch an exclusive IMAX TV spot for the September 6 release using the player below and you’ll find a new photo from USA Today in the gallery underneath.

As far as the film’s opening weekend at the box office, the first tracking for the sequel has been revealed and it’s looking at an opening similar to the first movie, which debuted the weekend of September 8, 2017 with $123.4 million.

Evil resurfaces in Derry as director Andy Muschietti reunites the Losers Club — young and adult — in a return to where it all began with It Chapter Two. The film is Muschietti’s follow-up to 2017’s critically-acclaimed and massive worldwide box office hit It, which grossed over $700 million globally. Both redefining and transcending the genre, It became part of the cultural zeitgeist as well as the highest-grossing horror film of all time.

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. James McAvoy stars as Bill, Oscar nominee Jessica Chastain (Zero Dark Thirty) as Beverly, Bill Hader as Richie, Isaiah Mustafa as Mike, Jay Ryan as Ben, James Ransone as Eddie, and Bill Skarsgård returning in the seminal role of Pennywise.

Andy Bean plays Stanley, and reprising their roles as the original members of the Losers Club are Jaeden Martell as Bill, Wyatt Oleff as Stanley, Sophia Lillis as Beverly, Finn Wolfhard as Richie, Jeremy Ray Taylor as Ben, Chosen Jacobs as Mike, and Jack Dylan Grazer as Eddie.

Muschietti directs from a screenplay by Gary Dauberman (It) based on the novel by Stephen King. Barbara Muschietti, Dan Lin and Roy Lee are producing the film. Marty Ewing, Seth Grahame-Smith and David Katzenberg are the executive producers.

The movie has been rated R for “disturbing violent content and bloody images throughout, pervasive language, and some crude sexual material.”
