Weekend Box Office: “It Chapter 2” earns $91 million

Not a bad opening weekend.

Not a holiday weekend, not a “summer release,” almost three freaking hours long.

The $91 million “It 2” pulled only looks bad if you compare it to “It Chapter 1,” which pulled in over $123 million two years back.

And you know, if projections had this one opening at over $102.

Or over $92.

Expect the actual take, announced Monday, to shrink even more.

“Angel has Fallen” did another $6 for second place. The summer holdovers are exhausted.

“It Chapter 2” also won the per screen average, edging and then some the limited release Linda Ronstadt doc from Greenwich Entertainment.

“Linda Ronstadt: The Sound of My Voice” earned over $16,000 per screen

Should’ve put that one on a hundred screens, kids. We love that Linda.
