And the story continues…
Fans of Stephen King’s It adaptation have reason to be thrilled, as earlier today director Andy Muschietti released a first look at James McAvoy as stuttering “Loser Club” leader Bill Denbrough on Instagram, in honor of the actor’s 40th birthday.
Check out the photo and Muschietti’s post below:
It made a blockbuster splash when it released in September of 2017, earning $123 million opening weekend and over $700 million worldwide to make it the highest grossing film of all time.
