Updated tracking has New Line’s It: Chapter Two opening between $90 million-$100 million, just behind the previous chapter’s all-time horror and September debut record of $123.4M. However, Fandango reports that advance ticket sales for the Stephen King sequel are the online ticketer’s best ever for a horror pic, outstripping It, Jordan Peele’s Us, last year’s Halloween and The Nun.
