Box Office Weekend: It Holds Top Spot

17 September 2017 6:54 PM, PDT | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

The horror film It topped the box office again this week with $60 million. The two-week total for the film fell just short of $220 million but has established the Stephen King adaptation as the highest grossing September release of all time. In a distant second-place was American Assassin with $14.8 million in its first week of release.

Darren Aronofsky’s mother! finished in third with $7.5 million in its initial week of release and has apparently not been winning audiences over despite the presence of star Jennifer Lawrence. Meanwhile, the Reese Witherspoon comedy Home Again brought in $5.3 million to bring its two-week total to $17.1, which was good enough to hold fourth place this week. The Hitman’s Bodyguard brought its five-week total to $70.4 million with $3.6 million this weekend, which held fifth place for it.

The successful six-week run for Annabelle: Creation continued as the horror film took in $2.6 million to raise its total »

‘It’ Lives Again, ‘mother!’ Dies at Box Office

17 September 2017 12:26 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Stephen King’s mighty “It” is single-handedly reviving box office totals after a bleak late summer. It is rare for the second weekend of a hit film to provide the majority of the gross for the time period, but that’s what Warner Bros. achieved on the horror flick’s second weekend. While not as dominant as it was in its September record initial three days, $60 million represented barely more than a 50 per cent drop. Not bad.

With almost $219 million in the till so far and a strong hold, forget $300 million as an ultimate domestic total — $350 million now looks possible. “It” is already the third-biggest modern-day September release ever after only ten days. It will soar past “Rush Hour” by next weekend, and end up almost certain behind “Crocodile Dundee” (adjusted to current ticket prices, at about $410 million) as best for the month in the era of wide initial releases. »

'It' Remains #1 with $60M Second Weekend, Floating to September Record

17 September 2017 9:22 AM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent news »

After just eight days in release, WB and New Line's It became the highest grossing September release of all-time, two days later it added another $40 million to that total for an impressive $60 million second weekend and nearly $220 million in just ten days. The horror film's performance vastly overshadowed the weekend's two new wide releases that saw Lionsgate and CBS Films's American Assassin deliver respectable results in second place while Paramount's release of Darren Aronofsky's mother! suffered greatly, finishing in third and receiving a disastrous "F" CinemaScore from opening day audiences. With an estimated $60 million this weekend, WB and New Line's It brought its domestic cume to $218.7 million after just ten days in release. As already mentioned, that makes it the largest September release ever, topping 1986's Crocodile Dundee ($174.8m). That number, of course, is not adjusted for inflation. Adjusted for inflation, however, It still finishes within the top »

Box Office: ‘Mother!’ Crumbles With $7.5 Million, ‘It’ Repeats No. 1

17 September 2017 7:35 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

It” continues to post terrifyingly huge numbers, while “Mother!” opens with a thud.

“It,” from Warner Bros. and New Line, expects to finish its second weekend with $60 million from 4,103 locations.

Broken down by day this weekend, “It” earned $19.4 million on Friday and $26.2 million on Saturday. Sunday’s take is estimated to be about $14.5 million. 389 Imax screens are expected to account for just over $3 million of the film’s take in North America this weekend.


Film Review: Jennifer Lawrence in ‘mother!’

Overseas, “It” is pulling in an additional $60.3 million in 56 markets. That raises its international total to $152.6 million and the worldwide tally to $371.3 million.

Based on Stephen King’s novel, “It” opened last weekend with an enormous domestic pull of $123.4 million. The R-rated title, reportedly »

Horrorwood! Will the new golden age of scary movies save cinema?

14 September 2017 9:41 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

It’s been a disappointing year at the box office – which means the huge success of It, Get Out and other horrors have made the genre more vital than ever. So how did these once-fringe films move to the heart of the mainstream?

A creepy clown has just chomped a monstrous chunk out of the box office – and It is not alone. This year, horrors Annabelle: Creation and the fantastic Get Out have thrived while other genres struggled to draw in the crowds. The Stephen King adaptation about the evil Pennywise has made nearly $180m (£134m) worldwide in its opening weekend, the biggest-ever opening for a horror. It’s official: horror films are firmly part of the mainstream – for good or bad.

The Conjuring “universe” kicked off in 2013, buoyed by the success of the Insidious series. The supernatural sequels and spin-offs that followed its success have since magicked themselves into »

'It' Set for $50M+ Second Weekend, Smothering 'Mother!' and 'American Assassin' Debuts

14 September 2017 9:33 AM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent news »

Friday Am Update: Lionsgate's release of CBS Films' American Assassin brought in $915,000 from Thursday night previews in 2,400 locations beginning at 7Pm. This compares favorably to John Wick, which kicked off its run to a $14.4 million opening with $870k from Thursday screenings. Paramount's mother! delivered $700k from Thursday previews beginning at 7Pm in ~2,000 locations, which is behind the $855k for Crimson Peak, which we used as one of our comps in our weekend preview below. It is, however, an improvement on the $520k Nightcrawler brought in before it opened with $10.4 million back in October 2014. We'll take a closer look at things tomorrow morning once Friday estimates come in. For now you can check out our weekend preview below.Weekend Preview: Following a record breaking opening last weekend, WB and New Line's It will reign supreme once again this weekend, pushing the horror film's domestic gross near record heights after just ten days of release. »

Can American Assassin End It's Reign of Terror at the Box Office?

12 September 2017 10:56 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

New Line Cinema's It remake gave the sagging box office a much-needed jolt after the worst summer season in 11 years, pulling in a massive $123.4 million, which even came in $6 million higher than the original estimate of $117.1 million. The tally easily set a new record for the highest September opening weekend in history, along with the highest debut for any horror movie in history, and provided even more proof that audiences are hungry for edgy R-rated fare. This weekend, Pennywise and The Losers Club will go up against three new movies opening in wide release, Lionsgate's action-packed adaptation American Assassin, Paramount's bizarre drama mother! and Open Road Films' thriller All I See Is You. None of these movies are expected to give It a serious run for the box office crown, with the movie easily expected to repeat atop the box office with $66.2 million.

Amityville O Despertar TV Spot: Hey Brazil, Wake Up to Terror

12 September 2017 9:30 AM, PDT | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

This has been a good year for horror movies in the U.S., with It, Annabelle: Creation, Get Out and 47 Meters Down enjoying very good returns at the box office. A Ghost Story also did very well in comparison to its production budget, even though it's very much not a traditional horror piece, and It Comes At Night scored points and stirred up further conversations. Less well-regarded titles like Wish Upon and Rings barely earned back their reported production budgets, but should turn profits in the home video realm. But there's nothing odd or unusual about any of that. Horror devotees tend to see every theatrical release, just because there are relatively few titles that make it to big screens, and some of them also...

‘It’ Will Become One of the Top 10 Horror Films in Box-Office History

12 September 2017 9:21 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

After Sunday confirmed growing word of mouth, “It” ended its opening weekend with $123 million. For horror films, which call a $40 million-$50 million opening great, that’s nearly uncharted territory. Even if “It” only doubles its opening, that would make it not only the biggest Stephen King adaptation ever (topping “The Green Mile,” in adjusted numbers), but also one of the top horror films in box-office history.

It will easily outpace this year’s two best, the microbudget Blumhouse films “Get Out” ($175 million) and “Split” ($138 million). And the first weekend already has surpassed “Annabelle: Creation” ($96 million) or a domestic disappointment like the Tom Cruise’s “The Mummy” ($80 million).

Horror can cover a lot of territory, so exact definitions can be a challenge. But it looks like “It” will join a list of the 10 biggest ever in domestic ticket sales (as calculated by adjusting ticket prices).
