Box Office: ‘IT Chapter Two’ Crosses $100M Domestically, Heads To $200M Globally

It Chapter Two earned another $5.5 million on Monday, a drop of 73% from its $20.391 million Sunday gross.
That brings its four-day total to $96.572 million. The film has crossed $100 million domestic sometime today. As for “legs,” that 73% drop is worse (but not that much worse) than the 68.7% Sunday-to-Monday drop for It in 2017 and the 70.5% Sunday-to-Monday drop for The Nun in 2018. Barring a fluke in either direction, we can presume that, in terms of post-debut legs, the $70 million Stephen King adaptation will end up somewhere between New Line’s first It and their fifth Conjuring Universe movie.

The paths of It and The Nun didn’t start to diverge until the end of their respective first weeks, as they both had similar holds on Monday and Tuesday of their first week. In terms of competition, the opening weekend of Hustlers alone will probably “equal” what Mother! ($7.5 million) and American Assassin ($14.5 million) pulled combined on the weekend of September 15, 2017. The combined debuts of Ad Astra, Rambo and Downton Abbey on September 20, 2019 should still be about equal to the combined openings of Kingsman: The Golden Circle ($39 million), The LEGO Ninjago Movie ($21 million) and Friend Request ($2 million) two years ago.
