News ‘IT’ Smashes Box Office Records With Monstrous Opening Weekend! Published 2 years ago on September 10, 2017 By Nick Bond Share Tweet We’re so incredible pleased to hear that Andy Muschietti’s IT totally smashed the box office with its monstrous $117 million opening weekend. We knew the film was going to be a mega success, but these numbers are just incredible. As noted on Box Office Mojo, “with its $117 million haul this weekend, Warner Bros. and New Line’s IT “has claimed the largest September opening, largest fall opening, the largest opening for an R-rated horror film, not to mention the largest opening weekend for a horror film of any MPAA rating, and tops Open Road’s new release Home Again in second place by nearly $110 million. Overall, the film accounted for more than 75% of the combined gross for the weekend’s top twelve.” Internationally, IT brought in an estimated $62 million from 46 markets for a $179 million global debut. The overseas numbers include the largest opening weekend for a horror film in the U.K. Right now, horror is bigger than it’s ever been. Congratulations to the genre we love, horror is truly back to where it belongs!
