Last week Kingsman: The Golden Circle excelled at the box office. This week when American Made got rescued it immediately rose to success by earning the most in the United States on Friday. But by the upshot of the weekend, it appears the horror thriller movie, “IT: Chapter One” is freshly sprouting up from the sewers to get back the box office apex.
Operating for the fourth weekend now, this horror movie is smashing records all over the globe and editing new ones. ‘It’ grossed around $17.3 million this weekend in the United States and Canada, which is slightly more than what Tom Cruise-starrer American Made, made this weekend.
Based on Stephen King’s 1986 novel and directed by Andy Muschietti, It had a record-breaking September acquisition at the domestic box office, where it has collected $291.2 million. The film also added $262 million in the international markets, accelerating its universal total well past the half-billion-dollar mark, to $553.2 million.
Its sequel has been announced too (considering the commercial and critical breakthrough of the movie this wasn’t a shock to anyone) which is expected to hit the multiplexes in 2019.
Even though It has led the way to become the top-grossing show this weekend, Universal’s American Made and Fox’s Kingsman: The Golden Circle haven’t been much behind in the competition as both the movies earned $17.016 million and $17 million sequentially.
American Made directed by Doug Liman had a tremendous opening on Friday as it grossed $6 million domestically and had beaten the collection chart on Friday. The movie also earned pretty ample money in the overseas business in the past many weeks. However, the movie still is the lowest opening for Tom Cruise movie since Jack Reacher in 2012.
Kingsman: The Golden circle’s collection has dropped a little but $17 million in a week where It and American Made are nevertheless in theatres, the producers of this franchise won’t be exceedingly dissatisfied.
Lengthening the list of top 5, next in line comes the Warner Bros’ the Lego Ninjago Movie at the fourth position with $12 million. Ten days following its release in North America this movie has grossed $35.6 million which is imperceptibly poor for this animated movie franchise as the prior two movies (The Lego Movie and The Lego Batman Movie) earned more than this.
Ending the list, Flatliners has grossed around $6.7 million. The movie was expected to earn at least $10 million by the upshot of the weekend but sadly the “not so good” reviews have concluded in its failure.
