The new horror film It breaks all records of the genre on its first weekend, after a few disappointing weeks in the movie theaters
If you're planning on going to a movie this week at your favorite movie theater, there's a pretty good chance it'll be 'it' - the new horror movie based on Stephen King's book, which blooms (or even explodes) impressively after some of the most disappointing weeks That Hollywood has experienced in the last two decades.
It was officially launched last weekend in North America (and in dozens of other markets around the world), supported by positive reviews with 70 score from 100 on Metacritic site and 87 percent of positive reviews on the RottenTonatoes website and managed to overshadow the most optimistic early predictions : Revenue of no less than 51 million on the first day on the screen in the United States and Canada, on the way to total revenues of between 117 million to 124 million in three days, made it the horror film that experienced the first best weekend ever.
It easily broke a single weekend income record in September in North America, the weekend revenue record for each fall season, the first record horror movie for the first weekend and more - when it also came very close to the R-rated revenue peak (for R Viewers aged 17 or older or accompanied by adults only), which proudly holds the big hit Deadpool starting February last year.
With total revenues of 200 million from funds around the world in the first three days, It seems to have the potential to overtake the original 'Exorcist' and become the most successful horror movie of all time, in a year when horror films thrive when many other categories crash, with Get Out, -Annabelle: Creation, all of which became big and surprising commercial hits.
"This" will reach theaters in Israel this Thursday, the 14 in September. Are you planning to go check it out, or are not all the murderous clowns really talking to you? Share comments.
