The sequel to New Line’s “It” will be released on Sept. 6, 2019, including IMAX, Warner Bros. announced Monday.
To date, the film adaptation of Stephen King’s iconic novel has grossed $266 million domestically, and has broken several records since it opened earlier this month. That includes the biggest opening for a horror movie, the largest opening for a September movie, and the highest grossing horror film ever.
The King novel was always meant to be adapted into two parts, with the first movie focusing on the children’s experience with the iconic monster and the follow-up to be told from the adults’ perspective.
“It” starred Bill Skarsgard, Finn Wolfhard, Jaeden Lieberher, Wyatt Oleff and Chosen Jacobs, and was directed by Andy Muschietti. The film was released on Sept. 8 and received solid reviews. On Rotten Tomatoes, it holds a score of 84 percent “fresh.”
Until then, New Line will release “Life of the Party” in co-production with Warner Bros. starring Melissa McCarthy, Maya Rudolph and Gillian Jacobs. The studio will also release “Game Night” and “The Nun,” the latest addition to the “Conjuring” franchise.
So far, nothing else is dated on Sept. 6, 2019. So Pennywise will be back to terrorize us once again.
