What did we see in the new trailer?

Jessica Chastain's character, Beverly Marsh, is seen visiting the house of an old lady.

While looking at an old postcard that was ripped into pieces, Bevs starts to notice things are a little...off.

After sipping on some tea, Beverly starts to notice the old dear is sweating profusely. When she wafts her blouse to cool down, a strange marking on her chest is revealed.

Then, by looks of it, shit. goes. down.
