IT: Chapter Two looking at 100 million opening weekend.

Not too shabby.

Giving the sagging box office a jolt, “It: Chapter Two” is heading for as much as $100 million in its opening weekend in North America, early estimates showed Friday.

Warner Bros. is adhering to its $90 million forecast for the horror sequel but rival studios projected a nine-figure launch frame. The figure is $23 million less than the 2017 debut of “It,” but it’s also the best opening since “The Lion King” premiered with $191.8 million during its July 19-21 opening frame.

I was originally going to see IT: Chapter Two today, but I had to run errands and prep for the games this weekend*. I’ll probably go see it next Tuesday or something. With a 90-100 million dollar opening, the movie should stick around for a while.

*I can’t quite casually see the movie. IT is a lonnng film for a horror flick; almost three hours. …Well, alright, that’s just long generally. Still, you get the gist of it.
