IT Chapter Two Weird Trailer Is a Head-Spinning Halloween Nightmare

The Weird Trailer for IT Chapter Two has arrived and it’s a creepy one. Aldo Jones is back doing what he does best in his latest video. One would think that it’s pretty hard to make the IT sequel even creepier than it is, but Jones has pulled off that feat and threw in just about everything into this powerhouse of a viral video. We even get some pretty deep cut memes, including the infamous Bully Maguire, which should have Tobey Maguire fans pretty happy.

The IT Chapter Two Weird Trailer is actually the first teaser clip from the movie that was released. Jessica Chastain as Beverly Marsh is visiting her childhood home and has an interesting talk with the elderly tenant. The scene starts off pretty normal until we see Joaquin Phoenix’s Arthur Fleck from Joker doing his happy and sad face in the window. From there, things start to get hot when Leonardo DiCaprio’s Rick Dalton from Once Upon a Time in Hollywood starts lighting the place up with a flamethrower.

There’s a lot to unpack in the latest Weird Trailer, which should probably be watched at least twice. The ending is what makes the whole thing worth it, thanks to a Ben Stiller cameo. IT Chapter Two was not able to live up to the hype created by the first installment, but the Weird Trailer should give one a whole new perspective on the movie and what Andres Muschietti was able to pull off in a relatively short amount of time. With that being said, some have criticized the movie for being too long.

Taking one of Stephen King’s most beloved books and adapting it for the big screen was not an easy task and it doesn’t look like Andres Muschietti is done quite yet. He has been threatening to put out a supercut of both movies to better tie into the book with a bunch of additional scenes not present in the final cuts of either movie. This could make for one long marathon session of a viewing, which some horror fans might find pretty exciting. For others, they’ll stick to the book and the original miniseries.

While the Weird Trailer for IT Chapter Two is a creepy mashup of pop culture rolled into one creepy video, it really doesn’t come close to a de-aged Finn Wolfhard. That might be the scariest element of the entire sequel and no amount of extra pop culture goodies can take away from that element of the movie. Hopefully Andres Muschietti will go back and fix that for when he sits down to assemble the supercut of both movies. For now, the Weird Trailer will just have to do for those who really like to be creeped out. The IT Chapter Two Weird Trailer comes to us from Aldo Jones’ YouTube channel.
