IT is it..

The film adaptation of Stephen King’s creepy novel is already shattering numerous records, including landing the biggest opening ever for a horror movie, or for the month of September.

FROM THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER:

It is shattering numerous records, including landing the biggest start ever for a horror film, not accounting for inflation. And it’s the biggest opening ever for the month of September. The movie’s Friday take alone was bigger than the previous September crown holder, Hotel Transylvania 2, which pulled in $48.5 million for the three days.

And its Friday haul almost matched the opening weekend ofParanormal Activity 3 ($52.6 million), which is the current record-holder for top horror opening.

The movie also nabbed the biggest Friday ever for an R-rated title, beating Deadpool’s $47 million. (Deadpool went on to open to $132.4 million, however.) And its Thursday preview gross of $15.3 million was the best ever for an R-rated title (besting Deadpool at $12.7 million).

Internationally, the film pulled in an outstanding $16.1 million on Friday on approximately 10,560 screens, bringing the overseas running cume to $25.7 million.

It had been projected to open to $65 million-$70 million, which would still have been a record.
