Three 6th grade boys ditch school and embark on an epic journey while carrying accidentally stolen drugs, being hunted by teenage girls, and trying to make their way home in time for a long-awaited party.
Keith L. Williams,
Defeated by members of the Losers' Club, the evil clown Pennywise returns 27 years later to terrorize the town of Derry, Maine, once again. Now adults, the childhood friends have long since gone their separate ways. But when people start disappearing, Mike Hanlon calls the others home for one final stand. Damaged by scars from the past, the united Losers must conquer their deepest fears to destroy the shape-shifting Pennywise -- now more powerful than ever.
On the side of Mike's Native American artifact is a symbol of a circle with one large point and several smaller points. This represents the Dark Tower. Stephen King's Dark Tower series of novels connects a number of his works including It, The Shining, The Stand, Salem's Lot, Insomnia, and numerous others. The sixth book, Song of Susannah, implies that It is one of the six greater demon elementals. It's rival, the turtle Maturin, is one of the guardians of the tower's beams while It's mission is to destroy the beam. See more »
After the climax, the camera pans over the town and you see the sign "Royal Lepage" on one of the buildings. Royal Lepage is a Canadian real estate owner-operator that doesn't exist in the US, so you know it wasn't filmed in Maine. See more »
All those buildings, all those sit-ups! I also knew you were going to die alone

A lot of people seem to be put off by the long running time. I found it perfect length as it allowed me to relax into the film and I honestly couldn't see how the film could work if it was any shorter. Some of the CGI was over-egged, but the set pieces, thunderous score and acting was great - especially Hader, McAvoy and Chastain. I would've loved it to have pushed the boundaries into an 18 certificate, but I understand it would've excluded younger fans. I loved the ending, albeit in a very similar vein to part one.
