It Proves To Be A MASSIVE Hit At The Box Office!

IT also broke the record for largest September debut, previously held by Hotel Transylvania 2, which opened with $48.5 million in 2015; and became the biggest opening weekend by a horror or supernatural film - Paranormal Activity 3 took in $52.6 million in 2011. Summer tentpole numbers were posted on what historically has been one of the slowest weekends of the entire year.

Directed for New Line by Argentine filmmaker Andres Muschietti (Mama) and costing a modest $35 million to produce, It turned into a movie for all audiences and not just younger horror fans.

Although "It" has just been released, plans for a second film are already underway.

The remake of the Stephen King story is also a victor with critics, sitting now at 87 percent on Rotten Tomatoes, 70 percent on Metacritic and scoring a B+ Cinemascore. Box Office Mojo has the estimates, and the estimates are good for IT and basically nothing else because this movie overshadows the other nine on the list. Darren Aronofsky's mother! may have suddenly popped up out of nowhere in its publicity push, and it has quite the list of names in its cast, but it's also only opening at 2,500 theaters according to Mojo.

Undated film still handout from the 2017 adaptation of It.
