Pennywise To Rain Pennies Around The World As ‘It: Chapter Two’ Eyes Horror Record $200M+ Global Opening

  • Deadline
Pennywise will be handing out balloons in 75 overseas markets as well as the U.S. and Canada this weekend, with It: Chapter Two planning a nearly full day-and-date release versus 2017’s staggered rollout for the original.

All in, industry sources are seeing a global debut that could potentially score a worldwide opening record for a horror pic with $200 million+, besting the previous It‘s $189.7M start. This time, however, overseas is expected to make more than domestic — the opposite of the case in September 2017, when It posted the best domestic and September opening of all time with $123.4M.

North America this time in around 4,200 theaters is expected to deliver north of $90M, maybe $100M, and that’s due to the sequel’s 2-hour 49-minute running time, and the fact there was a pent-up anticipation for this Stephen King reboot which originally was adapted for TV.
