3 months ago

The Jaw-Dropping Graphic Tale Of Horror Rules Box Office

The Stephen King Adaptation, sold out about 91 million dollar tickets this weekend. Additionally, it also picked up 94 million dollars worldwide, states the studio. It is a major success for the Warner Bros. though they are behind the predecessor. “IT” (2017) has a massive record of 120 million dollar ticket sales in North America, at the release.

Reviews Of The Original And The Sequel

The original “IT” was set on the plot of 1989 summer where a group of children was haunted down by a deadly clown Pennywise (Bill Skarsgard). The supernatural mystery was the important factor that leads the film to be the highest-grossing box office horror movie ever.

Andres Muschietti is the one to direct the sequel too. In this horror graphic tale, the plot is set exactly 27 years ahead of the previous one. It features adult characters. They include James McAvoy, Jessica Chastain, Bill Hader, and others. The same failed to impress the critics the way its predecessor did. It has a 64 percent fresh rating of the rotten tomatoes whereas “IT” (2017) had 86 percent. According to A.O. Scott, “This two hour forty-nine minutes movie drags more than it jumps wearing out it’s the premise  and possibly also your patience as it lumbers towards the final showdown.” The first “IT” ran for two hours and fifteen minutes.

IT: Chapter Two Did Not Face Any Competition

With its mind-blowing box office collection, the sequel really did not have much competition to face. Lagging much behind is the “Angel Has Fallen” with about 6 million dollar ticket sales in its third weekend. “The Lion King” had a close collection of 4 million dollars in its eighth weekend. “Overcomer” had 3 million dollar sales last weekend.
