Surpassing initial studio estimates of $117 million, the Stephen King adaptation has actually taken in a record-breaking $123M, beating Marvel and Sony's Spider-Man: Homecoming. IT now claims the third largest opening weekend of 2017 behind Beauty and the Beast and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2., and the biggest weekend for a horror movie of all time domestically.

Expect to see the major studios make a lot of new horror film announcements over the next few months.
