It: Chapter Two took in roughly $10.5 million on Thursday, a pretty solid opening night for the sequel. Now, it’s not as high as It‘s $13.5 million, but it doesn’t work to compare the behemoth breakout that was It to a solid opener for the sequel.
Some box office predictions place the film’s opening somewhere between $80 million to $100 million, and that’s a pretty damn nice weekend for the sequel. I think It: Chapter Two will have legs and open nicely, but having a three-hour run time could affect its opening, even if it doesn’t affect the overall take.
It: Chapter Two has a Fresh Rotten Tomatoes score of 65%, which is notable, but it’ll depend on word of mouth just as much as the first film.
