Chastain and McAvoy are probably expensive enough. They probably spent half of the movie's budget to hire these 2. Then they have to play cheap with the others.

 

Now let's pray that they cast Chadwick Boseman to play Mike. :)

 

I seriously doubt they were expensive.

Even if they weren't, the studio wouldn't go about getting star names for a sequel to a movie made for 35M which is almost surely going to decrease domestically. Instead, 2-3 name actors and the rest character actors because the IP is the star anyway.

What made the first one special what the kids bonding while fighting the Clown  and the Stranger Things/80's nostalgia connection.

 

This movie has none of those.

 

Unknown child actors are easily cute.

 

D-List actors are not.

 

Nobody will think this movie is better than the first.

Well the first movie made a gazillion in profits, way way more than expected. That is an unusual situation where spending much more money on the sequel wouldn't be surprising.

While I’m glad they’re going with actors that look like the younger versions as well as some name talent. I just hope some of the more unknowns can hold their own with the bigger names.

I get that, I'm just talking from a personal stand point.  I would have liked to see the biggest names in the cast be reserved for Bev, Ben and Bill.  They are the three most important characters from my perspective.  I was hoping for someone like Pratt or Cooper or Gyllenhall for Ben.  But it is what it is.

I think everyone knows the kids story in IT is the better of the two stories and I don't think anyone at WB is thinking part two is topping part 1.

Other horror movies where kids fight the boogey man and are at the center of the story ?

Not movies where kids are only victims of the killer or are possessed ....

This. Ben, Bev, and Bill have the most essential roles and we’re going from McAvoy and Chastain to a guy best known for a CW show. I’m fine with Stan’s casting and Ransone but this one has me slightly disappointed. Like I said look wise is perfect. I just wish if they’re going on A list for Bev and Bill they’d be consistent with Ben.

Really, I think 110/280 would be fantastic for this

I think there will be a lot of flashbacks to the kids, hopefully anyway.

I don't even know what It is about let alone knowing which of two stories is better. But I do like Jessica Chastain's tits so that's something.
