IT scared up an impressive opening weekend, grossing $62m on approximately 10,665 screens in 46 markets. Andy Muschietti’s Stephen King adaptation has the biggest opening ever for a horror film, the biggest September opening ever, excluding China, and the biggest WB opening in 2017 in ten markets, including Russia, Australia, Brazil, and Spain.

IT debuted in the UK on $12.3m from 1,342 screens, becoming by far the biggest opening weekend ever for a horror film. The film captured an unprecedented 82% share of the top five films in the market. Russia generated $6.7m on 1,639 screens, also coming in as the biggest opening weekend ever for a horror film, the biggest all time September opening and the biggest WB opening weekend of this year.

Elsewhere,  Australia shattered records, generating $5.9m on 544 screens. The film dominated with a 70% share of the top five, while Brazil, benefitting from the Independence Day holiday, produced $5.6m on 846 screens, ranking as the biggest opening weekend ever for a horror film. IT debuted in South Korea on $4.3m, and ranks as the number one foreign title in the market, with the results coming in well ahead of The Conjuring and Annabelle.

Spain generated $3.1m from 452 screens during opening weekend, doubling the results of The Conjuring and Annabelle, and 68% ahead of The Conjuring 2, while Holland produced $1.4m and Poland produced $1.2m.  In other Asia markets, the film collectively grossed nearly $10m and ranked number one everywhere. IT is set to debut in Mexico and Sweden this week. IT grossed $10m at the worldwide IMAX box office, making it IMAX’s best ever worldwide September opening weekend, as well as the best ever opening for a horror film.

Not sure how IT performed in India. Wasnt tracking this weekend about its performance.

But i watched it on its release day evening show 4.40pm the screen had close to 200 seats and it was 60-70% full. That's pretty good for a movie like IT. 

Should have done well OW as Horror movies have good market in India as well.
