The upcoming film adaptation of Stephen King's It is tracking for a record September debut.

The Warner Bros. and New Line horror film, rolling out in theaters Sept. 8, could clear $50 million or more in its first weekend, besting Hotel Transylvania 2 ($48 million) to score the biggest start ever for the month of September, not adjusting for inflation. Some even believe it could approach $60 million.

Warners insiders are being more cautious and saying $40 million-$45 million, noting the sluggish marketplace and the fact that September has never been known for huge openings. Also, It is rated R.
