It earned a B+ CinemaScore from audiences. It’s international numbers come from 10,665 screens in 46 international markets, the largest opening ever for a horror film and the largest opening for a horror film and a September film in Russia and Australia, as well as the biggest horror film opening in Brazil, Holland and Poland.
