NEW YORK (AP) — The horror hit “It” topped the North American box office for the second straight week with $60.1 million, bringing its two-week domestic total to $218.8 million, according to final box-office figures Monday.

The Warner Bros. release has quickly become the biggest box-office smash to ever land in September, a typically sleepy month before the fall movie season really kicks into gear.

With the Stephen King adaptation drawing moviegoers, audiences had little interest in Darren Aronofsky’s psychological thriller “mother!” starring Jennifer Lawrence. The Paramount Pictures release debuted with $7.5 million and earned an extremely rare F CinemaScore from audiences who rejected the movie’s intense and mysterious thrills.
