With the widest release ever for a horror film at 4,570 screens, Warner Bros./New Line’s It: Chapter Two earned a USD 91 million opening this weekend.

While that’s well below the horror record USD 123 million earned by the first 'IT' in 2017, 'IT: Chapter Two' does stand as the second-highest opening weekend in the history of the genre overtaking Halloween which earned a USD 76 million opening in October 2018.
