It Chapter Two is a 2019 American epic supernatural horror film and a sequel to the 2017 film It, both based on the 1986 novel by Stephen King. The film is directed by Andy Muschietti, returning from the first film, with a screenplay by Gary Dauberman. It stars Jessica Chastain, James McAvoy, Bill Hader, Isaiah Mustafa, Jay Ryan, James Ransone, Andy Bean, and Bill Skarsgård, who returns as Pennywise the Dancing Clown. It is the second installment of the It film series and centers on the Losers Club reuniting from their various lives apart from each other to destroy It once and for all, though being apart means they have mostly forgotten the terror they endured together 27 years ago. It premiered in Los Angeles on August 26, 2019, and was theatrically released in the United States on September 6, 2019. It received mixed reviews from critics, with praise for its acting and themes but criticism for its near-three hour length and weaker scares compared to its predecessor. The film has grossed over USD 473 million worldwide. The Losers rejoin at the Neibolt House to perform the ritual in a cavern beneath the sewers. The ritual results in the Deadlights in a sealing jar, but It emerges from the jar as a giant red balloon, which bursts, revealing It in two combined forms, Pennywise and a spider. It then kills Henry Bowers, who was arrested for the murder of his father, escape from a mental institution, and Henry kills a guard on the way out.
Mike Hanlon discovers It has returned, and calls his childhood friends, Bill Denbrough, Ben Hanscom, Beverly Marsh, Richie Tozier, Eddie Kaspbrak, and Stanley Uris, back to Derry to honor the promise they made 27 years earlier to kill It if it came back. Mike shows Bill, via a drug-induced vision, that the Native American \”Ritual of Chüd\” can stop It for good. It kills a little girl named Victoria at a baseball game, and then helps Henry Bower escape from the mental institution. Mike reveals that the ritual requires items from their past to be sacrificed and instructs the others to split up and search for their artifacts. Ben recalls a childhood encounter with Pennywise at school and realizes his artifact is the yearbook page Beverly signed, which he kept in his wallet. Richie and Eddie decide to leave until Beverly reveals that she has had psychic visions of their deaths should they fail to fulfill their promise. Bill finds his childhood bicycle and recovers the paper boat from the storm drain where Georgie was killed. He meets a boy named Dean, who says he hears voices from the drain. Later, Bill receives a message from It who taunts him that It will kill Dean. Bill runs off to save Dean, only to watch helplessly as It kills the boy. After saving Dean from It, the group descends into a sewers and save him out of facing It alone.
