Bill Skarsgård Looks Terrifying As Pennywise In First Look From 'It: Chapter Two'

We're not too cool to confess that with its scenes of murderous clowns, child murder, and blood-spewing bathroom sinks, It: Chapter One sufficiently put the shits up us.

So, good news everyone. A first look at Bill Skarsgård reprising his role as ancient-evil-entity-turned-dancing-clown on the set of It:Chapter Two has emerged and it's creepy as fuck.

The actor is shown in his full Pennywise getup looking sinister as ever while filming scenes for the film in Toronto.

Mysteriously, he appears to be sitting on the shoulder of a gigantic baseball-wielding lumberjack/hipster. As you do.

CBR reports that the statue has a great deal of significance in regards to Stephen King's 1986 novel and to the author's hometown.

In King's book, one of the Loser's Club visits the statue of a mythical lumberjack outside his hometown of Derry, Maine where he's confronted by Pennywise.

The shape-shifting evil entity temporarily assumes the form of the statue to terrorise the character.

Furthermore, the website reports that the statue seen in the set photo is also a recreation of the one from King's hometown - Bangor, Maine notoriously inspired much of the book.

In the sequel to Andy Muschietti's modern adaptation of the classic horror novel The Loser's Club will be taking on Pennywise as adults.

The young cast including Finn Wolfhard, Chosen Jacobs, and Sophia Lillis will be reprising their roles once again (possibly for flashback sequences) but a whole new exciting cast will be leading the film as older versions of the characters.

That includes James McAvoy, Jessica Chastain, Bill Hader, Isaiah Mustafa, and James Ransone. All of whom will be taking on the roles of the childhood besties forced to return to their traumatic hometown 27 years after they first defeated Pennywise.

And from the looks of things the ol' evil clown is just as monstrous as he was when they last faced him.

If the mere thought of Skarsgård back in his clown makeup and suit is enough to give you nightmares then take heart - he gave himself bad dreams in the role, too.

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, the actor admitted: "I was home, done with the movie, and I started having very strange and vivid Pennywise dreams.

"Every night, he came and visited."

Alright, mate. That's enough of that. Not that we're creeped out or anything.

Still, you know damn well we'll be buying tickets for It: Chapter Two the second they're on sale - we can't wait to be scared shitless in cinemas all over again by Pennywise and his many horrifying guises.
