'It' becomes highest-grossing horror movie of all time

It, the new Stephen King adaptation has become the highest-grossing horror flick of all time by, scaring the previous record holder, The Exorcist out of the top spot. 
The 1973 film held the record at $232.9 million lifetime domestic gross.
Many industry insiders predict that the final tally will exceed US$300 million which would make It only the fourth 'R'-rated film to reach that benchmark – joining The Passion of the Christ, Deadpool and American Sniper.
It also snagged the largest opening day for an 'R'-rated thriller, surpassing 2011's Paranormal Activity 3, and had the biggest start for any Stephen King adaptation, including films like Carrie and The Shining.
