Background

2017 film

As school lets out for summer, Ben is getting his bike while listening to a New Kids On The Block song when Beverly steps out and asks if he's going to let her pass or if there's a secret password; he promptly apologizes, and clumsily drops his display. Beverly tells him that Henry Bowers and his cronies are by the west entrance, so he's safe. Curious about what he's listening to, Beverly takes his headphones and puts them on, and after identifying the singers, jokes around with him about being "The New Kid" before introducing herself, though Ben knows her because they're both in social studies, and she signs his yearbook.

A few moments later, Ben is in the library reading about an incident that occurred around easter, when the librarian asks him why he's in the library instead of enjoying the summer. He then notices a red balloon floating through the room and follows it, discovering a trail of eggs leading to the basement. Suddenly a headless boy walks down the stairs towards Ben, who flees, bumping into the elderly librarian. As he leaves the library, Ben is ambushed by Henry and his gang, who take him to a bridge, which they call the "Kissing Bridge", and torture him before Henry pulls a knife and starts carving his name on Ben's stomach; Ben kicks Henry in the crotch, causing him to fall backwards over the bridge and go rolling down the hill. Henry and his thugs give chase, with Henry losing his knife in the process. He orders Reginald and Patrick to go after Ben while he and Vic search for his knife. Ben races through the river, eventually collapsing from exhaustion at the sewer entrance, where he meets up with Bill, Richie, Eddie, and Stanley. The four take Ben to an alley, where Richie is left to look after him, while Bill, Eddie, and Stan go to the pharmacy to acquire some supplies with a little help from Beverly, who drops in on them as they are attending to Ben's wound.
