Box Office Round-Up (11/09/17)


It’s Monday night, which means the working week begins and the weekend at the box office is OVER until the end of the week. I think I can speak for us all and say we need a weekend like this one, especially after the terrible box office at the end of August and the disappointing box office throughout Summer overall.

It reigned supreme like we expected, but what none of us expected is by how much. The Stephen King adaptation rocketed to a $123 million weekend domestically even with Hurricane Irma effectively the box office in Florida. Internationally, It brought in an estimated $62 million from 46 markets. Overall, $179 million. Phenomenal business.

In second place, Home Again, starring Reese Witherspoon, was dwarfed by the monster that was It and only found $9 million. On a budget of $15 million (not including marketing), that isn’t too bad, but it’s far away from Witherspoon’s heyday.

The Hitman’s Bodyguard added $4.85 million and Annabelle: Creation found $4 million.

  1. It — $123.1 million
  2. Home Again – $9 million
  3. The Hitman’s Bodyguard – $4.85 million
  4. Annabelle: Creation – $4 million
  5. Wind River – $3.2 million

Last Year: Tom Hanks’ Sully premiered to $35 million.

Next Week: Jennifer Lawrence stars in Darren Aronofsky’s Mother!

Fun Fact: It is the highest grossing opening weekend for a R-Rated horror movie, beating Paranormal Activity 3, and the highest grossing opening weekend in September, knocking Hotel Transylvania 2 and Gravity away.

  1. Unbelievable. This was something special. It reminds me of when the polls were wrong about Trump and Brexit. Nobody estimated anything like that.
