Deadline is reporting that the first teaser trailer for IT managed to score more viewers in 24 hours than any other film in history. With 197 million views in that time period, the remake managed to beat the first Fate of the Furious trailer, which previously held the title for most views in 24 hours with 139 million. That means it scored almost 60 million more viewers than that trailer did in that time frame, and completely smoked all of the other previous record holders, including Beauty and the Beast (127.6 million), Fifty Shades Darker (114 million), and Star Wars: The Force Awakens (112 million).
It (also known as It: Part 1 – The Losers’ Club) is an upcoming 2017 American supernatural horror film and an adaptation of Stephen King’s 1986 novel of the same name, produced by KatzSmith Productions, Lin Pictures, Vertigo Entertainment, and New Line Cinema, and distributed by Warner Bros. It is intended to be the first installment in a planned duology, as well as being the second adaptation following Tommy Lee Wallace’s It (1990) miniseries. The film tells the story of seven children in Derry, Maine who are terrorized by the eponymous being, only to face their own personal demons in the process.
