Financially they were both successful. At least I think this is successful for a horror movie in 2019
Budget $21 million
Box office $113.1 million
I didn't even know there was a 2019 version.
I remember the original being popular with gradeschool kids in the early 90s, fwiw.
Are there other King novels you recommend? Salem's Lot or The Shinning (which I know you don't like) would be the two I'd probably be most likely to pick up if I had to choose one to read right now.
