An evil entity haunts a small Maine town every 27 years in the form of a killer clown in the horror film ‘It.’
Warner Bros.

NEW YORK — The Stephen King adaption It continues to scare up record ticket sales, taking in an estimated $60 million in its second week and leaving a paltry $7.5 million for Darren Aronofsky’s audacious genre-bending psychological thriller mother!

New Line and Warner Bros.’ It remained easily the top draw in North American theaters. It slid 51% from last week’s unexpectedly sensational opening of $123 million. Most had expected It to open to about half that.

Paramount Pictures’ mother! has horror elements, too, so it was risky to schedule it right behind It. But Aronofsky’s film is a more art-house proposition, made for about $30 million. For star Jennifer Lawrence, it’s the worst wide-release opening of her career.

The counterterrorism thriller American Assassin edged out mother! for second place with $14.8 million.
