IT fails to breaks records—opens lower than 2017 predecessor


It opened on 4,570 screens .. it was the widest release ever for a horror film — the Stephen King adaptation earned $37.4 million on Friday and is now projected for a $91 million opening.

But that is less than the $100-110 million projected by independent trackers but more in line with the $85-90 million set by Warner Bros.

It also would pass the $76 million opening earned by last year’s “Halloween” for the second highest opening of any horror film, sitting only behind the $123 million earned by the first “It.”
