‘JOHN WICK 3’ KNOCKS DOWN ‘AVENGERS: ENDGAME’ WITH $57 MILLION DEBUT
Earth’s Mightiest Heroes put up a good fight, but John Wick put at end to the three-week box office reign of “Avengers: Endgame.”

Propelled by positive reviews, “John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum” beat expectations with a debut of $57 million from 3,850 North American locations. That was enough to nab the box office crown from “Avengers: Endgame,” Marvel’s latest juggernaut that collected $29.4 million during its fourth weekend of release. READ MORE


KEANU REEVES’ ‘JOHN WICK 3’ TOPS ‘AVENGERS 4’ WITH $57 MILLION WEEKEND
John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum got off to a stunning start this weekend, with a frankly superb $57.025 million domestic weekend debut. That includes a $22.6 million on Friday, which included $5.9 million in Thursday previews. It’s a record-busting opening weekend for Lionsgate outside of the last Twilight sequel (Breaking Dawn Part II) and the four Hunger Games movies. After severe underperformances from Hellboy and Longshot, John Wick 3 was the anti-hero they needed. It’s also Keanu Reeves’ second-biggest opening weekend (sans inflation) behind the $91 million Fri-Sun launch (of a $134 million Thurs-Sun debut) of The Matrix Reloaded in 2003. READ MORE


‘JOHN WICK 3’ WINS THE BOX OFFICE, BUT WEEKEND TOTALS DROPPED $60 MILLION FROM 2018
The Keanu Reeves franchise is building a track record that suggests “Fast and Furious” longevity, while “The Sun Is Also A Star” burns out.

“John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum” opened to a domestic total of $57 million; after “Us,” it’s the best opening for a non-Marvel release this year. That’s encouraging as we approach a summer that largely features sequels to previous hits, but — after three very strong weekends — it’s the first weekend in which the total gross lagged behind last year, when “Deadpool 2” debuted to $125 million.
