EN: Chapter two star James McAvoy has shamed the set after seeing co-star Bill Skarsgard dressed as Pennywise. The film is the highly anticipated sequel to the successful Warner Bros horror film of 2017 IT and it will happen 27 years after the events of the first film. Both films are adaptations of Stephen King's novel and the original film was well received by the public and critics. In addition to this, IT it was also a box office hit for Warner Bros., which helped the studio reach $ 5 billion at the box office that year, so a sequel was certainly on its way.
McAvoy plays the movie as an adult Bill Denbrough, one of the Losers' Club members, who will return to Derry, Maine, to face Pennywise for a final confrontation. Collecting 27 years later, EN: Chapter two will revolve around the Losers' Club, now an adult, who left Derry behind the impression that the horrors they faced as children were put to rest. Andres Muschietti returns to direct the upcoming sequel, which should be another success for Warner Bros., and the young Losers Club will also be present. Along with McAvoy and Skarsgard, the cast includes Jessica Chastain, Jay Ryan, James Ransone, Isaiah Mustafa, Bill Hader and Andy Bean. With the release of the film a few months away, McAvoy has now revealed his biggest obstacle during a film experience.

During a part of Good morning America, McAvoy revealed that Pennywise frightened him on the set of EN: Chapter two. Explain that the clowns had never been a great interest for him as a child, as he always feared their tragic nature. However, despite his fears, McAvoy admits that Skarsgard is incredible as a person and as an intimidating clown. During the production of the original film, Skarsgard was kept away from the young cast to create a more genuine reaction, but it seems that Pennywise can strike fear in any age range. When he discussed the performance of Skarsgard as an intimidating clown, McAvoy said:
"It's great, the guy who plays the clown is terrifying, he's a lovely boy, yet he really scared me, I remember being there with the rest of the cast, all these adults, and we did strange and weird things And we all look at each other: "I do not like being here, I do not like being an actor today." He really did it, he really scared me, I never liked child clowns . "
McAvoy is certainly not the only one to fear the clowns, since many seem not to love face-painted individuals. Once the clowns were recognized as harmless circus attractions, but much has changed over the years. Now, the use of clowns has become more common due to intimidation tactics and viral jokes. In fact, just before the release of the first film, there were clown sightings in different states, some thought it was a marketing tactic by the studio involved in IT, but it has never been revealed to be the case.
Aside from the fears, the sequel to Warner Bros' success in 2017 is still one of the most anticipated films of the year. Fans of the first film are looking forward to the film, which should give more information on what to expect. However, this continuation will also serve as a conclusion to King's original mythology, so it will be interesting to see if the success of EN: Chapter two it will lead to another continuation.
