The movie is set in 2016, 27 years after the events of the first film. The book “It,” by Stephen King, is set in 1958 and 1985, so there was some deviation from the original novel. 

The movie opens with the homophobic attack on Adrian. This is featured in the novel but not the 1990 miniseries. King based the event on the real-life 1984 murder of Charlie Howard, a gay man attacked and thrown from the State Street Bridge in Bangor, Maine. 

Early in the film, we’re introduced to the now adult Bill Denbrough on the set of the adaptation his book “Attic Room.” There are two movie references here. The first is that they’re shooting on Warner Bros. Stage 14, a legendary stage responsible for “A Streetcar Named Desire” (1951) and “A Star Is Born” (1954). Bill also talks about sliding under the stage door like Indiana Jones.  See the rest of the story at Business Insider
