If you didn't thoroughly enjoy Andy Muschietti's update on Stephen King's 1986 novel It last year, you're probably a narc. Against a reasonable production budget of $35 million, It ultimately walked away with a global haul of just under $700 million and enough praise-heaping reviews to wash away any doubts about the upcoming sequel. Put another way, Muschietti and company absolutely nailed it.
With It now available for home viewing, we've been gifted with one hell of a deleted scene focused on Henry Bowers (Nicholas Hamilton). The scene (SPOILER ALERT for people who love waiting an unconscionable amount of time to see great movies) picks up after Bowers buries a switchblade in his dad's neck and reveals the less-than-great fate of his pals. Catch the scene in the video up top before some lame copyright shit results in it being taken down.
The scene is included on the Blu-ray edition of the horror insta-classic. Though It has been available digitally since December, the Blu-ray and DVD (???) editions don't hit shelves until Jan. 9. According to Collider, the physical It release boasts a grand total of 11 "deleted or extended" scenes and an assortment of special features. In the "Author of Fear" featurette, King breaks down the inspiration behind one of his most iconic characters, Pennywise.
It: Chapter Two is slated for a Sept. 6, 2019 release. Muschietti will return as director. "We are going back to the summer of 1989 and if people love these characters and actors the way I do, it's going to be a blast to go back to 1989 in the second one," Muschietti told Variety back in September. "I don't want to go back just for that, I want to make those flashbacks essential in the plot where in order for the Losers to figure out the clues to defeat Pennywise, they have to retrieve their memories from the past."
