Spidey down only 37% week to week, at this point it has a shot at overtaking Guardians vol 1 :P

I desperately wanted to predict 92mil but I couldn't even get that far, so 100mil was never going to be predicted by myself.

 

I'm ecstatic to see an out and out horror film do so well and a horror film that I love.

I REALLY wanted to predict 100M but the hurricane and football scared me too much. Plus some early showings did seem to be pretty empty so it was definitely a tough call. From the beginning, I used Hannibal's 91M adjusted OW as a reference point. I usually don't like to use adjusted grosses as comps but this just seemed to fit.

 

Now that's it's finally out, I can admit that I probably would have been shocked and crazy disappointed by anything less than 60M or so.

Somebody correct me if I'm wrong, but I think one of the genius marketing tactical WB used for IT was (surprisingly) not releasing a Red Band trailer at all.

 

Almost every high profile release that is rated R has at least 1 or 2 red band trailers attached. However, this one pretty much fully hid any of the graphic nature, violence, cussing etc. Basically "if you want to see any of that, come buy a ticket"

 

It was the ultimate tease.

I agree, I would have been very disappointed with less than 60mil. Sure 50mil still would been great but after all the hype, I would have been like meh. Lol

IT is absolutely killing OS as well, setting records for a Horror movie across the whole Europe and LA. And most important, surpassing Wonder Woman's OD in several countries, it's looking like a $300m OS total will happen, a 50/50 split will take it to $600m WW.

IT's gonna have a phenomenal run though. Sure it's been mentioned but it really doesn't have any competition at all. Kingsman is probably its closest in demographic until Thor: Ragnarok (and naturally it'll collapse after Halloween anyway)

Holy shit that number is insane. 

 

Basically beating Deadpool, SM:H opening days, not to mention since those were in 3D, tickets have to be way higher.

It's so weird what that Dark Tower movie turned into. I know nothing of the source material but I heard so many people say that it was so far away from the book it wasn't even funny. I don't understand why they would do that and make something that looks like a more generic Underworld clone instead?

To be fair, this is a pretty tame R, outside of like two scenes

My bad, for some reason thought it did.

The two scenes that were hard-R for me happened at the beginning and happened around the middle.  Everything else was standard R stuff.

A faithful adaptation of the first book would've been a grimy western chase film with occasional bouts of major violence or weird fantasy elements.

 

I'm guessing they wanted to do something more commercial to set up their own series better, so they plucked elements from a few novels and mashed them together into what they thought would make for a good startup venture. They were wrong.
