It shatters records in box office
American supernatural horror film It has started to shatter records in the box office. With a massive $51 million on Friday from 4,103 theatres, the film adaptation of Stephen King’s creepy novel landed as the biggest opening ever for a horror movie. The film also has the largest gross for an R-rated title, for a September release and for a film based on a Stephen King book. Trailing only Disney’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, at $17 million, and Beauty and the Beast, with $16.3 million, exceptions have been sky-high for It from the very beginning. Some even estimated the gross as high as $75 million. For an industry having the worst summer in recent memory, the New Line and Warner Bros.’ venture is bringing life back to the box office. Directed by Andy Muschietti and written by Chase Palmer, Cary Fukunaga and Gary Dauberman, It follows a group of bullied kids band together when a monster, taking the appearance of a clown, begins hunting children. Jaeden Lieberher and Bill Skarsgård star as Bill Denbrough and Pennywise the Dancing Clown, respectively, with Jeremy Ray Taylor, Sophia Lillis, Finn Wolfhard, Wyatt Oleff, Chosen Jacobs, Jack Dylan Grazer, Nicholas Hamilton and Jackson Robert Scott in supporting roles. After its theatrical release in the United States on September 8, the film received positive reviews, with critics praising the acting, direction and faithfulness to the novel, and many calling it one of the best King adaptations.
