Shocking no one, IT: Chapter Two dominated the box office with one of the biggest openings of the year and for the horror genre in general.
IT: Chapter Two made $91 million over the weekend, which is the seventh-highest opening of 2019 between Aladdin and Us. It’s also the second-highest September opening of all time behind the first IT, which made $123.4 million in 2017. Chapter Two is also the second-highest horror opening of all time behind the first IT, which is still the only horror movie to ever open above $100 million. Worldwide, IT: Chapter Two had a total opening of $185 million.
Angel Has Fallen dropped just shy of 50% and took second place in its third week out with $6 million. Its made over $53 million domestic so far and is about $10 million off from topping London Has Fallen’s $62.5 million total gross.
Good Boys took third place with $5.4 million, putting it at $66.8 million so far for a domestic total and over $82 million worldwide.
The Lion King and Overcomer rounded out the top 5.
The Peanut Butter Falcon jumped into the top 10 after a gradual release strategy and took seventh place with $2.3 million and it is now playing in 1,310 theaters. Brittany Runs a Marathon also expanded wider and took 12th place with slightly over $1 million from 230 theaters.
The Per Theater average also went to IT: Chapter Two, which made $19,912 in each of the 4,570 theaters it was playing in.
I’m like the J. Jonah Jameson of Everything Action, writing and editing and constantly demanding pictures of Spider-Man.
