“It,” the latest adapation of the Stephen King novel, netted $9.65 million in it’s fifth week at the box office.

The fourth spot went to the animated film “My Little Pony: The Movie ” which earned $8.8 million.

“Kingsman: The Golden Circle” claimed the fifth place spot with $8.1 milllion, falling from its top spot at the box office the previous week.
