It’s been a pretty terrible August at the box office for Hollywood. In fact, this whole summer has been a little disappointing. The only studio who found success was Disney. There were a lot of remakes/sequels that flopped.
But don’t expect ‘It: Chapter Two‘ to join them. The sequel to the 2017 film will hit theaters September 6, 2019, and it’s expected to perform very well.
According to the early tracking numbers, it could bring home as much as $110 million, which would obviously be a great return. The original film made $123 million during its opening weekend in 2017 before going on to become the highest-grossing horror film of all time.
If the reviews are good for this sequel (and word of mouth builds) it’s possible it could jump over the $110 million prediction and match the $123 million return of the first film.
Of course, if the reviews bad, the opposite could happen. Although, that’s not likely. Everyone is prepared for this to be a smash.
Heck, even other studios didn’t want to battle this clown. It: Chapter Two will be the only nationwide release during the weekend of the 6th.[mashshare]
