Pennywise’s reign at the box office took a brief pause last weekend when ‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’ debuted in theatres, but ‘IT’ has managed to claw its way back to the top spot one more time. ‘IT’ brought in an additional $17.3 million in its fourth week in release and has grossed over $553 million worldwide. Additionally, ‘IT’ is only about $3 million away from besting ‘The Sixth Sense’s box office, which will officially make it the highest grossing domestic horror film of all time by the end of the week. Tom Cruises ‘American Made’ debuted in the second spot with a healthy $17.01 million. The CIA/DEA/Cartel picture cost an estimated $50 million to produce and has already grossed over $81.7 million worldwide. ‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’ dropped over 57% from week 1 to week 2 and brought in an additional $17 million. These numbers have to be somewhat of a disappointment for Fox because it highlights that the film is lacking the one thing that made the first film such a runaway hit, and that’s staying power. Though 57% drops are not uncommon, the first film only dropped less than 50% from week to week and cost far less to make. The “Lego: Ninjago Movie’ and ‘Flatliners’ rounded out the top five, finishing fourth and fifth respectively by bringing in $12 million and $6.7 million.
