CJ 4DPLEX, the world’s leading cinema technology company, together with Warner Bros. Pictures, announced in August 2019 the release of New Line Cinema’s IT Chapter Two in three leading next-generation cinema technologies: the multi-sensory 4DX format, the heightened 4DX Extreme (available in select theaters and territories), and the panoramic, 270-degree ScreenX.

When the film is released globally on September 6, 2019, audiences worldwide will be able to take in the highly anticipated horror franchise finale in the cutting-edge auditoriums of 4DX and ScreenX.

IT Chapter Two in 4DX will bring another chilling layer of suspense to the tense atmosphere of Derry with a combination of motion, vibration, and environmental effects.

And, for those who dare, IT Chapter Two in 4DX Extreme will be made even more terrifying. Amping the levels of motion, vibration and environmental effects by up to 20%, 4DX Extreme will have audiences jolting and gripping the edge of their seats, taking in the intensely suspenseful atmosphere of the 4DX auditorium in 4DX Extreme.

Finally, IT Chapter Two in ScreenX will expand the world of Derry, Maine, with key sequences throughout the film projected onto the left and right-side walls of the auditorium, surrounding the audience and enhance the looming, atmospheric tones of the film inside the theater. As the screen stretches onto the ScreenX wings, suspenseful images will dance in the peripherals of the audience, drawing the audience deeper into the experience.

Said JongRyul Kim, CEO of CJ 4DPLEX:

“We have had a longstanding partnership with Warner Bros. Pictures, and we are thrilled to be releasing our sixth collaboration this year with IT Chapter Two in 4DX, 4DX Extreme and ScreenX. Each collaboration has been wonderful, and we look forward to having audiences gripping onto their seats as they watch the heightened and terrifying concluding chapter of IT for a one-of-a-kind in-theater experience.”

Said Thomas Molter, Head of International Distribution at Warner Bros. Pictures:

“We are incredibly excited to be expanding our partnership with CJ 4DPLEX to release IT Chapter Two in 4DX, 4DX Extreme and in ScreenX. We trust CJ 4DPLEX to add something new and exciting to the film-going experience, and this film, enhanced by these cutting-edge formats, is going to be a lot of fun and especially terrifying for our audiences.”

This partnership follows past successful collaborations between CJ 4DPLEX and Warner Bros. Pictures that include: Annabelle Comes Home, The Curse of La Llorona, Godzilla: King of the Monsters, POKÉMON Detective Pikachu, and Shazam! in both 4DX and ScreenX formats.

4DX enhances the on-screen visuals of action-packed adventures and haunting horror films, transcending the traditional cinema experience through such special effects as motion-synchronized seats, wind, fog, rain, lightning, snow, bubbles, vibrations, and scents. The result is one of the most exciting cinema formats in the industry, drawing fans deeper into the action on the big screen. 4DX Extreme ramps up the motion and environmental effects further, heightening the effects by up to 20 percent, perfect for adrenaline junkies and super 4DX fans.

ScreenX is the world’s first multi-projection theatre technology that allows a 270-degree panoramic movie watching experience. ScreenX allows the audience to go beyond the frame of the traditional movie screen, utilizing a proprietary system to expand the center screen image to the side walls, surrounding audiences with imagery and providing a sense of being inside the movie.

In the United States, IT Chapter Two will be available in 4DX with Regal Cinemas, Cinepolis, Marcus Theatres and CGV Cinemas, and IT Chapter Two in ScreenX will be available with Regal Cinemas, B&B Theatres, and CGV Cinemas.

The film is slated for release in theatres beginning internationally on September 4, 2019 and will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures. See www.IT-Movie.net.  For movie release dates and locations in the United States, visit www.itthemovie.com.

Purchase tickets at a movie theatre which offers these new immersive technologies, and be sure to select the 4DX-type tickets when searching showtimes. Locations with 4DX/ScreenX tickets may include the Regal UA Denver Pavilions, 500 16th Street, Denver, Colorado and Regal Gallery Place 14, 701 Seventh Street NW, Washington, DC. Immersive cinema locations are limited but increasing.

IT Chapter Two overview:

Evil resurfaces in Derry as director Andy Muschietti reunites the Losers Club in a return to where it all began with IT Chapter Two. The film is Muschietti’s follow-up to 2017’s critically acclaimed and massive global box office hit IT, which grossed more than $700 million worldwide. Both redefining and transcending the genre, IT became part of the cultural zeitgeist.

Twenty-seven years after the Losers Club defeated Pennywise, he has returned to terrorize the town of Derry once more.  Now adults, the Losers have long since gone their separate ways. However, people are disappearing again, so Mike, the only one of the group to remain in their hometown, calls the others home.  Damaged by the experiences of their past, they must each conquer their deepest fears to destroy Pennywise once and for all…putting them directly in the path of the shape-shifting clown that has become deadlier than ever.

New Line Cinema presents, a Double Dream/Vertigo Entertainment/Rideback Production, an Andy Muschietti film, IT Chapter Two, starring James McAvoy, Jessica Chastain, Bill Hader, Isaiah Mustafa, Jay Ryan, James Ransone, and Andy Bean.

Reprising their roles as the original members of the Losers Club are Jaeden Martell, Wyatt Oleff, Jack Dylan Grazer, Finn Wolfhard, Sophia Lillis, Chosen Jacobs, and Jeremy Ray Taylor.

Bill Skarsgård returns in the seminal role of Pennywise.

Muschietti directed IT Chapter Two from a screenplay by Gary Dauberman based on the novel IT by Stephen King.  Barbara Muschietti, Dan Lin and Roy Lee produced the film, with Richard Brener, Dave Neustadter, Gary Dauberman, Marty Ewing, Seth Grahame-Smith, and David Katzenberg serving as the executive producers.
