After a very quiet couple of weekends on the US box office a monster of a film gets release this weeks in the shape of IT Chapter Two, but it comes in quite a bit below the original IT from 2 years ago, it still dominates the box office.
IT Chapter Two
Following on 2 years from 2017's IT the follow up takes over at the top of the US box office with ease, but whereas the first film opened to a massive $126 Million Chapter Two comes in at $91 Million.
The fan base is still there, and unlike other sequels this isn't a sequel as much as it completes the Stephen King book which interwinds between the two stories throughout.
With favourable reviews the film should see itself do well over the autumn (fall) and in the build up to Halloween where it is bound to get re-promoted.
Angel Has Fallen
The threequel movie starring Gerard Butler and Morgan Freeman falls to number 2 after a couple of weeks at the top with a weekend gross of $6 Million.
THe movie now has a total US gross of $53.4 Million after 3 weeks on the box office.
Falling to number 3 this week is the R rated teen movie which takes $5.3 Million on its 4th weekend for a new total US gross of $66.8 Million.
The Lion King
Disneys remake has been a smash hit for the mouse studio and after 8 weeks the film is still inside the top 5, this week taking $4.1 Million.
THe movies total US gross now sits at an amazing $529.1 Million, it is the 12th highest grossing movie in the US ever and could still enter the top 10 before the end of its run.
The faith based movie fell out of the top 5 last week but bounces back this weekend as the film climbs to number 5 with $3.7 Million takings its total to $24.7 Million on its 3rd week.
Spider-Man: Far From Home
The, maybe last, Spider-Man movie in Disney's MCU has been a mega smash for Sony who own the movie copyright to the character and this week it spends its 10th week on the chart and has a total US gross of $388.1 Million.
