‘It Chapter Two’ Will Be 3 Hours Long

After the monstrous success of the 2017 adaptation of Stephen King’s It — it’s currently the highest-grossing horror film of all time — fans can expect the next chapter to be bigger, darker, and longer. Set for release on September 6, the highly anticipated It Chapter Two will clock in at 165 minutes. That’s a lot of clown time.


The sequel features many of the cast from the first film, including Stranger Things’ Finn Wolfhard and former EH cover star Bill Skarsgård reprising his role as the titular ‘It’ aka Pennywise, while Bill Hader, James McAvoy, and Jessica Chastain also star. Take a look at the trailer below — it’s much shorter than 3 hours.
