'It' becomes highest-grossing USA horror film of all time

IT Stephen King Andres Muschietti Bill Skarsgard Finn Wolfhard Jaeden Lieberher US Box Office

Clowns may terrify a large part of the population but then a large part of the population clearly love being terrified, as the 2017 remake of It has become the highest-grossing horror movie in American history.

The crown comes with some caveats. One other note is that the gross does take inflation or adjusted box office figures into account. In contrast, The Exorcist had grossed $232.9 million domestically. In addition to terrorizing '70s theatergoers, "The Exorcist" got two director's cut re-releases.

Muschietti's It star Bill Skarsgard as the titular character, a demon inhabiting the body of a dancing clown called Pennywise, although inevitable comparisons to Tim Curry's mini-series and a long production period mean that the new film has had a rocky start. The movie follows a band of outcast teenagers as they battle a sinister force that's terrorizing their town. "But, "The Exorcist" is still the top-grossing horror film on an global basis, having netted Dollars 441.3 million globally to 'It's" USD 404.3 million. The film is expected to surpass The Exorcist at any moment, while insiders have the film pegged to exceed $300 million United States dollars. Given its monster grosses, it's no surprise that the studio is moving forward on a follow-up to "It."

It's record breaking numbers are likely to continue, and a sequel is already in motion.
