The new movie adaption of Stephen King's novel IT shattered box office records this past weekend, hauling in an unprecedented $123 million. The film boasts the biggest opening weekend for a September film, for a fall film, for a horror movie, and for a Stephen King adaption. Before IT's debut, however, some conservatives were rallying support on Twitter to boycott the movie because of King's political views.

I'm fine with his political views. I'm boycotting 'IT' because screaming like a little girl in a crowded theater is embarrassing.— Mandy (@aggiekiddoc) September 10, 2017
