iT Box Office – CWEB.com
Not only does It have an impressive 86% on Rotten Tomatoes, which is a solid score for a horror movie, but the movie is on track to land the largest opening weekend at the box office for any horror movie. Less than a week ago this was projected to make 50 million, which would have been great for an R-Rated horror movie… but it more than doubled that with 117 million. (2nd only to Deadpool for R opening weekends)
Not only that, but it’s the largest three-day opening weekend for an R-rated movie, the third largest box office opening of the year, the biggest opening for any September release, and the largest opening weekend for New Line Cinema. All that from the highest number of screens for an R-rated movie.
