"IT" BECOMES THE HIGHEST EARNING HORROR FILM, BEATS THE EXORCIST
After three weeks in theaters, Stephen King's “It” has passed “The Exorcist” to become the highest grossing horror movie of all time. Between its 1973 release and two director’s cut re-releases, “The Exorcist” has grossed $232.9 million domestically. On Thursday, “It” grossed $3.9 million which brings it to a total of $236.3 million.
“It” has bagged several box office records over the past three weeks and the next one will come when it hits $274 million, a total earned by “Gravity” in 2013. Once the film reaches that mark, it will become the highest grossing film released between Labor Day and Nov. 1, a calendar period often known to be considered a low period for the box office slate.
I'm definitely considering seeing it a second time even though Pennywise is creepy AF LOL! If any of you Sippers have seen it, post your comments so we can have clown chatbout!
