'It Chapter 2', the sequel to the adaptation of Stephen King's famous novel, has raised over $ 185 million worldwide.
27 years have passed and Pennywise has returned in It: Chapter 2. The sequel to the adaptation of Stephen King's famous novel has already reached the movie theaters and has raised over $ 185 million worldwide. The first installment reached 700 million dollars of collection, which made it the highest-grossing horror movie of all time, so... will the second part get over or match those figures? Be that as it may, the response of the public could raise the idea of expanding the story beyond the novels of the Maine writer and two members of the team of biology are in favor.
Bill Skarsgård, in charge of giving life to Pennywise on the big screen, and Andy Muschietti, director of the two films, do not close the door to a possible prequel to the villain and the mythology that encloses King's work. "It should be a correct exploration," says the actor on EW. "The book ends where the second movie ends, so it is the final chapter of the story.
There is this interesting aspect of going back in time before all this happened. There could be a story there that could be worth being explored. Obviously, it would be a story that is not in the books. It would be an independent story, but obviously within the same universe. So, there might be something interesting lost there. I think it would be fun, "he adds.
Muschietti, on the other hand, has stated in another interview that there is very rich mythology behind Pennywise. "There is whole mythology in the book... Mythology is something that always has opportunities to be explored. That [Pennywise] has been on Earth for millions of years. It has been in contact with humans for hundreds of years, every 27. So you can imagine the amount of material. It's always exciting to think about exploring this mythology eventually. It's very exciting. But, for now, there's nothing on the table. "
Would you like to see a prequel about Pennywise? If so, perhaps we should wait a while to see it, because Muschietti already has a new project at hand: The Flash. The solo movie on the Scarlet Corridor has suffered many inconveniences in recent years, but the project is still underway with Ezra Miller in the role of Barry Allen.
It: Chapter 2 is now available in cinemas and features Jessica Chastain, James McAvoy, Jay Ryan and Bill Hader in its cast; among others. On these lines, do not miss the trailer.
