Weekend Box Office

According to Sunday estimates, Warner Bros. and New Line’s It has returned to narrowly beat out American Made and Kingsman 2 in a close three-way contest this weekend.

Some rival studios reportedly show It and Fox’s Kingsman: The Golden Circle tying with $17 million each, and Universal’s American Made coming in slightly behind, meaning this one likely won’t be settled until Monday morning.
