The sequel to the summer hit “It” will be released Sept. 6, 2019.
Deadline broke the news Monday afternoon, and it a great sign for fans everywhere. Two years might be a long time to wait for the second half of the film version of Stephen King’s novel of the same name, but at least everybody now knows exactly when it is coming.
They reported in part:
The sequel to New Line’s It will be hitting the screen on Sept. 6, 2019. That’s the same post-Labor Day frame that the first chapter launched in, racking up an unprecedented $123.4M domestic opening — the best September has ever seen.
Andy Muschietti directs the second half of Stephen King’s novel which focuses on the Loser’s Club, 27 years later, when they’ve grown up and away. But then a devastating phone call brings them back.
Worldwide It is nearing close to a half billion, and at the domestic B.O., it’s already the largest horror film ever with $266.1M, beating The Exorcist late last week.
I saw the movie and enjoyed it a lot. It wasn’t as bloody or scary as I thought it might be, but it was still very entertaining. Coming of age stories combined with killer clowns is always a very easy formula for success.
There’s no doubt that the 2019 sequel will also crush it at the box office.
