Maine-Based “It” Smashes Box Office Records

Unless you’ve been living under a soundproof rock for the past few weeks, you’ll have heard one of us on WCYY talking about It, the long-awaited remake of Stephen King’s stellar 1986 novel of the same name. It has special meaning for us Mainers, seeing as King is a famous Mainer himself, and thusly sets a lot of his books here. It takes place in the fictional town of Derry, which personally gave me a huge Bangor vibe. Good to know that those making the movie did their research!

Anyway, It finally opened this weekend, and absolutely smashed not one, but two box office records. According to WCSH-6, It made a huge return on it’s modest $35m budget. $117.2m, to be exact. Not only that, but It now also holds the record for largest September movie opening of all time, which is almost equally impressive.

The best part of this whole thing, of course, was that the movie was awesome. I thought it really did justice to King’s original work, while updating and expanding on it in the right areas. The tease for part two at the end of the film was clutch, as well. Part two is currently being written and is slated for a 2019 release date, according to ScreenRant.com.
