'It' Is Now Officially The Highest-Grossing Horror Film of All Time

'It' Is Now Officially The Highest-Grossing Horror Film of All Time”

IT has become the highest-grossing horror film in USA cinema history.

The crown comes with some caveats. Muschietti's film still trails The Exorcist for the global record for a horror film, with IT now weighing in at $404.3 million compared to The Exorcist's $441.3 million.

It's still a stunning result for the King adaptation, and a reason to celebrate at Warner Bros. and New Line, the studios responsible for bringing Pennywise to the big screen.

Adding approximately $3.94 million yesterday to its already stellar total, It has made $236.34 million domestically in a mere 14 days, the biggest take for a horror flick in USA history. A follow-up, The Conjuring 2, would go on to make $102.5 million past year, and two spinoffs, 2014's Annabelle and Annabelle: Creation, released this August, earned $84.3 million and $100.2 million (and counting) respectively. In addition to terrorizing '70s theatergoers, "The Exorcist" got two director's cut re-releases.

Through Thursday (September 21), the movie has earned $236.3 million in just two weeks at the box office, according to TheWrap. Previously, Andy Muschietti's take on the iconic novel became the ninth highest-grossing R-rated release in history.
