Washington D.C. [U.S.A], Sept. 23 (ANI): Pennywise the Clown has completely creeped out all the competition at the ticket windows.
'The Exorcist' became the genre's highest grossing title of all time at the domestic box office, unadjusted for inflation.
This isn't the only record the movie has broken during its short tenure in theaters so far.
The picture's USD 123.4 million opening weekend registered the biggest September debut (a bar previously set by 'Hotel Transylvania 2's USD 48.5 million debut back in 2015), the largest opening for a horror release, and the second-best three-day frame for an R-rated movie.
The film is also the ninth highest-grossing R-rated release in history and the highest-grossing September release.
The movie follows a band of outcast teenagers as they battle a sinister force that's terrorizing their town. (ANI)
