It: Chapter Two earns $91 million at the box office

Based on Stephen King’s novel, It: Chapter Two stars James McAvoy, Jessica Chastain and Bill Hader

Published: 09th September 2019

Warner Bros/New Line’s It: Chapter Two has got the box office moving again after a rough couple of weeks. With the widest release ever for a horror film at 4,570 screens, the film earned a $91 million opening this weekend.

While that’s well below the horror record $123 million earned by the first It in 2017, It: Chapter Two does stand as the second-highest opening weekend in the history of the genre overtaking Halloween which earned a $76 million opening in October 2018.

While critics were less enthused with It: Chapter Two than the first film, the film still managed to have a good run taking up 68 per cent of the box office revenue over the weekend. 

Based on Stephen King’s novel, It: Chapter Two brings the Losers Club back to Derry 27 years later to take on the demonic clown Pennywise, and stars James McAvoy, Jessica Chastain and Bill Hader.
