It is a shame the trailer for It Chapter Two was released on the same day as clips from Top Gun: Maverick and Cats – the Top Gun sequel may edge it out in the nostalgia stakes, while Cats already looks far more horrifying.

That said, the fresh look at the Losers Club and nemesis Pennywise is pretty gnarly in its own right. Andy Muschietti‘s sequel takes place 27 years after the original, and showcases the gang dealing with the ungodly clown as fully-fledged adults.

Jessica Chastain, James McAvoy, Bill Hader, and their mates can be seen confronting the the suitably spooky Bill Skarsgård. It seems their mortal attempts to stop Pennywise have mixed effectiveness, as demonstrated by the clown’s frankly nutty tongue game. You’ll see what I mean.

It Chapter Two hits local cinema screens September 5.
