"It: Chapter 2" was quite literally the only movie that earned a reasonable profit this weekend with an incredible $91.1M. Don't get used to these kinds of weekends this season! The general consensus seems to be that, like the first, it's a solid coming-of-age story that happens to have a bit of horror in it. As long as we don't have ridiculoudly comical Pennywise dancing, then I'm fine either way.

MOVIE TITLE RELEASE DATE OWNER PRICE THEATERS
The Goldfinch September 13, 2019 Courtney B. $5 2,500+

Maybe five or six years ago I went through kind of a douche-baggy thing where I wanted to read through "contemporary classics", and Donna Tartt (the writer of "The Goldfinch") was on that list. Now, I haven't read "The Goldfinch", because I own "The Secret History". Since we are all being honest with each other, "The Secret History" is sitting on my bookshelf and I haven't read it yet. This movie looks nice and pretentious. I expect a short theatre run and then right onto Amazon Prime. $12M.
