After a 44% drop on Wednesday to $4.521 million, It Chapter Two fell just 12% on Thursday for a $4 million gross. That gives Warner Bros. and New Line’s $70 million horror sequel a $113.068 million seven-day total, so it’ll pass The Nun ($117.5 million) in domestic grosses today.
That’s $10 million less in a week than the first It earned in its opening weekend, but Paul W.S. Anderson’s Event Horizon ($27 million domestic in 1997 on a $70 million budget) or Jean De Bont’s remake of The Haunting ($177 million worldwide in 1999 on an $80 million budget) wishes they could have earned $113 million domestic in a week.
Presuming it has maintained a 49/51 domestic/overseas split, It Chapter Two has also earned between $225 million and $230 million worldwide, putting it above the $224 million global cume of Annabelle Comes Home. It’s also a weekend-to-week multiplier of 1.241x.
