The blockbuster Stephen King
adaptation It returned to take the top spot this weekend, after being knocked off by Kingsman: The Golden Circle
last weekend, winning with an estimated $17.3 million, followed closely behind by newcomer American Made
in second with $17.01 million and last weekend's winner Kingsman: The Golden Circle
with $17 million. With all newcomers expected to underperform at the box office this weekend, it was believed to be quite the close race, which turned out to be true, with the top three spots separated by just $300,000. Since these movies are so close together in today's estimates, it's possible, if not likely, that the top three movies may switch spots when the actual numbers are released tomorrow.
Box Office Mojo reports that the It remake dropped 90 theaters in its fourth frame at the box office, bringing its theater count down to 3,917, but it still earned a respectable $4,419 per-screen average, bringing its domestic total to $291.1 million,
