#BOXOFFICE: “IT” REPEATS THE FEAT AT #1
After an explosive opening last weekend, STEPHEN KING’S IT repeats the feat in its second week out with $54 million from 4,148 theatres. Over two weeks it has grossed a whopping $212.7 million for Warner Bros., a huge accomplishment for Toronto where the Film was made.
In second is long-awaited AMERICAN ASSASSIN with $15.2 million for Lionsgate Films/eOne Films, from 3,154 theatres across North America. It gets a 31% on the Tomatometer and a B+ CinemaScore.
After a TIFF ’17 debut last weekend, Darren Aronofsky‘s mother! opens in third with $8 million for Paramount Pictures from 2,368 theatres. Despite a 71% on the Tomatometer, it gets only a F CinemaScore from Audiences.
Rom-Com HOME AGAIN in its second week out earns $5.5 million for Open Road Films/eOne Films, good enough for fourth. In total it has made $17.3 million domestically.
DUNKIRK in its eighth week still is going strong, rounding-out the Top Ten with $1.4 million for Warner Bros. It has made $185 million in total in its domestic run.
