Adaptation of Stephen King's 'It' breaks horror record and box office curse
12 September, 2017, 18:59 | Author: Christian Benson
This weekend, people flocked to theaters en masse as the new horror flick by Warner Bros. and New Line Cinema made its debut. "It" more than doubled the prior highest September opening, $48.5 million for "Hotel Transylvania 2" in 2015, and the record opening for a horror movie, previously $52.6 million for 2011's "Paranormal Activity 3". Only one R-rated movie, Deadpool, has even had a better weekend in America.
Coming off a lackluster summer box office, "It" should have strong legs as word-of-mouth continues to spread. This, during a weekend when Hurricane Irma threatens huge portions of Florida and Georgia, which could dent attendance by as much as 5%. In recent years New Line has had a run of successful horror films including "The Conjuring" series and its "Annabelle" spin offs.
The film cost $35-M to produce, turned into a movie for all audiences and not just younger horror fans.

Warner Bros.' supernatural horror film "Annabelle: Creation" took fourth place with an estimated 4 million USA dollars in its fifth weekend. Critics gave the Andres Muschietti film an 87% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes and a 71/100 on Metacritic while ticket buyers graded IT a "B+" on CinemaScore.
Based on his 1986 suspense novel of the same name, the film follows a group of bullied kids in the town of Derry who join forces when a shapeshifter taking the appearance of an evil clown begins hunting down the children. The Reese Witherspoon-led romantic comedy should earn $9 million this weekend from 2,940 locations.
Fukunaga dropped the project after clashing with the studio over the film's tone. "Pennywise has certainly brought big dollars back to the movie theater, and not a moment too soon", says comScore analyst Paul Dergarabedian. Some of that has to do with a general bias against horror movies while some is because of how free King is with selling the rights to his novels to the highest bidder.
