IT Chapter Two Is Nearly As Long As Avengers: Endgame

If you went to see Avengers: Endgame at the cinema, you'll remember that, aside from the fact it was AMAZING, it was also incredibly wrong. Incredible plot? Great graphics? Obviously. Numb bum and a bursting bladder - yeah, that too.

You're going to have to gear yourself up for more of the same though, because the new IT film is almost as long. With a run time of 165 minutes - yep, that's almost THREE HOURS - IT Chapter Two is a mere 16 minutes shorter than Avengers: Endgame.

Stephen King, the famed author behind the horror film franchise, has seen the film and is more than impressed by it. To be honest, if it's good enough for him - it's certainly good enough for us. Tweeting on 27 July, he posted: "IT CHAPTER 2: The final confrontation is epic."

We're all geared up for the new movie after the trailer dropped recently. Spoiler: it looks s*** scary.

"Chills from head to toe!! Looks Incredible!" one fan tweeted after the trailer dropped.

Another said: "I cannot wait to see it! Looks like it could be one of the best horror movies of the year."

In the new trailer - which will be our final sneak peak before the movie drops on 6 September - we see more of the full grown-up cast in action together, with James McAvoy, Jessica Chastain, Jay Ryan, Bill Hader, Isaiah Mustafa, James Ransone and Andy Bean all seen panting, running and screaming through the clown-centric nightmare.

We hear more about their plans on what to do 'if it ever comes back', while flashing back to their experiences with Pennywise as kids - which *spoiler alert* weren't particularly good.

But sadly for them, Pennywise does indeed return, saying ominously: "For 27 years, I've dreamt of you. I craved you. I've missed you!"

The sequel to the 2017 hit is set 27 years after the original. We see the members of the 'Losers' Club' now fully grown and fairly well-adjusted, considering the terror wrought on them in the events of the first movie by the ghoulish Pennywise.

The film sees Andrés Muschietti return to the director's seat, while actor Bill Skarsgård reprises his role as the terrifying clown.
