Watch How ‘It Chapter Two’ Revisits a Drain of Terror | Anatomy of a Scene


“I’m Andy Muschietti,
director of ‘It Chapter Two.’ So this is the moment where
all the Losers separate unwillingly. And this is the scene where
we find Bill Denbrough– James McAvoy plays
Bill Denbrough– just as after he recovered
his bicycle, Silver. This is a great scene, because
we summarize a little bit in this escalation
from not being able to ride his bicycle to
actually getting a grip on it and riding it like a champion. We sort of illustrate how the
adult turns into the child again.” “Hi-ho, Silver! Away!” “And very soon he
arrives to the house where he used to live
and another memory hits. And it’s the memory of that
infamous day where he sent Georgie away with a boat. That’s a scene that we
took from the first movie. So the scene changes
mood a little bit. The mood is now
a little darker. We know what
happened after that. But it’s a memory
that has been pushed down and pushed down. But the intention
with the scene is to like slowly
lure the audience into this memory
at the same time that it’s happening on
the mind of the character. There’s a transition
that you can see when McAvoy first
arrives to the storm drain and looks at the storm drain. He drops the bike, and
the drop of the bike takes us to the past.” “Billy, don’t leave!” “Hello?” “The scene continues. We see McAvoy talking
to a Georgie there. I say ‘a Georgie,’
because at this point, we know that Georgie
isn’t Georgie anymore. Georgie has been
gone for a long time. But because Pennywise is
playing with his feelings, he lures him into the illusion
that Georgie is still there. Everything that is shot from
the outside is location. It’s shot on the street. Everything that is
from the inside out, when the camera is
inside the storm drain, was shot on stage.” “Take my hand.” “Billy, please.” “I’ve got you. Come on!” “He’s coming!” “Take my hand!” “Billy!” “Come on! Take my hand!” “I wanted specifically to make
this a visual effects shot. As a reference, we had some
hands of small performers that we used as a reference. The whole swarming is
divided in three shots, and it’s pretty creepy.” [LAUGHING] “I hate you! I hate you.”

  1. I see many replies here after writing the following.
    You need to hate Satan.
    Horror films can be very real because Satan is real.
    Just because this is on the big screen does not make it make believe.
    There are only 2 entities :
    God and Satan, both of which are real. Good verses Evil.
    Satan's horror are real and very evil.
    No one pushes religion because
    0 people can push anyone to Christ into their heart and life.
    All of this is controlled by God Himself for the asking with an open contrite repentent heart that wants God and Christ into their heart and their life.
    I know maybe some Christians are not kind and understanding ,
    but most want you to see that we dont have to do this life alone .
    Jesus redeemed us back to Father God , so we can have direct access to Him so that we can come to know them both through His Word, prayer and sufferings and trials .
    Eternal life is knowing the 1and true living God and Jesus whom He sent. John 17:3
    Knowing them both is very important to your eternity.
    This is only accomplished by :
    Seeking God for His Peace and to Love Him with all of your heart, mind and strength.
    God's promise to all of us is:
    Seek Me with all of your heart,
    and you will find Me.
    Jeremiah 29:13
    Bless you all

  2. I hate you, too, lol. I'm not seeing this!! Tim Curry is a legend. A friend gave me the miniseries on DVD, and I still* haven't opened it. Once was enough, and King already made storm drains as scary as sharks! (Seriously: I cross the street rather than walk near one. 🎈😦 Thanks Stephen, lol!) ~💗

  3. The New York Times
    Bestseller List Artificially Boosts Michelle Obama’s Book over Judge Jeanine’s

    The New York Times bestseller list denied Judge Jeanine Pirro the number-one slot on its ranking system, despite the fact she sold over 17,000 more copies than Michelle Obama. Gee I wonder why nody trust you… hmmmmmmmmmmmmm

  4. LA Street Gangs
    LA City Jail
    Seattle, San Francisco, Chicago, Detroit, Baltimore, Washington DC, New York,
    Not Stephen King, but the violent reality denied by the left wing NYT.

  5. Hollywood is producing 'not for working brain cells' movies for decades. Now we have 'independent' directors needing to explain their 'artistic' desires shot by shot to the cultural morons' kids.

  6. I thought this scene was so dumb. Did he really think Georgie was still down there after what we saw in chapter 1? Also, if Georgie was alive..why would he be the same age? lol

  7. Guys i hope you know pennywise wasnt playing around because georgie is still alive it was Georgies ghost they explain it in an interview with bill skarsgard Georgie couldnt climb out thats why he stood in one place

  8. How would billy fall for that it’s been 27 years and goergie is still little

    Edit do not call me a copy cat I noticed that before I looked into the comments i didn’t know someone already noticed

  9. Dude…it’s so sad, he actually thought for a split second that Georgie was there, MAN PENNYWISE CUT BILL SOME SLACK!

  10. This was one of the best scenes of the film. It had that same eerie, sad, creepy tone of the first film which Chapter 2 lacked a lot.

  11. One of my favourite scenes from the movie! The fact that Pennywise talks to young Bill saying: "Why? Because you weren't there" it's really creepy and sad.
