Andy Muschietti's It remake may have broken records to become the highest-grossing horror ever but it just took an even more demonic turn, and only a day before Halloween. The movie's global box office take now stands at $666 Million according to Box Office Mojo with a domestic haul of approximately $323,730,202 and a foreign one of $342,900,000.
This combined figure, while ominous, continues to show that fans are still into the reboot of the popular Stephen King story, which has already been fast-tracked for a sequel in September 2019. Muschietti is set to return as the director which will see the kids from Derry now as adults and ready to battle Pennywise once more after stopping him the first time around.
Few details are known of the second chapter's plot, but Muschietti has said it will switch between the present to the past, incorporating flashbacks of the kids after their first victory over the clown. Pennywise's origins and ghastly actions throughout the course of history have also come up as directions the sequel may explore.
Based on Stephen King’s classic novel of the same name, director Andy Muschietti’s It stars Bill Skarsgård as Pennywise, Finn Wolfhard, Jaeden Lieberher, Jeremy Ray Taylor, Sophia Lillis, Jack Dylan Grazer, Chosen Jacobs, Wyatt Oleff, Nicholas Hamilton, Owen Teague and Logan Thompson. It is currently playing in theaters.
