After two weeks in the top spot, Stephen King’s “IT” has been displaced by “Kingsman: The Golden Circle” to become this weekend’s box office champion with a debut opening of $39 million.

The action-comedy sequel outperformed the original, which brought in $36.2 million domestically in its opening weekend back in 2015, with “The Golden Circle” also estimated to bring in an additional $61 million at the international box office.

“We’re seven per cent bigger than the last one, which opened on a holiday weekend,” Chris Aronson, distribution chief for Fox, told Associated Press. “We grew the franchise. We’re very happy.”

Despite being bumped to second place, the news is not all bad for “IT”, with the Stephen King adaptation raking in a solid $30 million in its third weekend. This bring the total domestic box office of “IT” to more than $266 million, unseating “The Exorcist” to become the highest-grossing horror movie of all time.

Rounding out the rest of the top five are “The LEGO Ninjago Movie” with a disappointing $21.2 million domestically in its opening weekend, followed by “American Assassin” ($6.3 million) and “Home Again” ($3.3 million).

Meanwhile, Darren Aronofsky’s Jennifer Lawrence-starring “mother!” languished at sixth place with an anemic weekend box office of just $3.3 million, following the film’s dubious distinction of being one of the few movies to earn a grade of F from website Cinemascore.
