It Chapter Two

New Line’s R-rated It: Chapter Two opened to $91 million domestically in a needed win for the film industry after a brutal August. And while the sequel didn’t match the record-shattering launch of the first film, it’s still the second-best horror bow of all time and the second-biggest for the month of September behind It, as well as the top bow for an R-rated pic so far this year, not adjusted for inflation.

The top 12 movies of the weekend, as of Sunday, September 8, are as follows:
