John Wick 3 Explodes At Box Office With $22.67 Million Friday, Set To Dethrone Avengers: Endgame

John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum is all set to rule the box-office in the coming week. As a shining example of an action-movie franchise that’s gotten better with each installment, the movie has been receiving rave reviews off late. Riding the wave of positive reception, John Wick 3 opend to a power-packed $22.67 million Friday that includes $5.9 million from Thursday night showings, and looks set to earn $55 – $58 million in its opening weekend.

With those results, John Wick will become the first movie that dethrones Avengers: Endgame from its No. 1 position at the box office, a spot it’s held since the three weeks it debuted. Endgame will still bring in enough money to pass Avatar, though that is a story for another article. This one’s about John Wick and the Keanu Reeves starrer is rocking a great box-office and looks set to outgross its predecessors. John Wick: Chapter 2 made almost $170 million, nearly double the amount of the original John Wick. If John Wick 3 can finish its run with a total north of $300 million in this crowded summer season, it should be considered as a huge success.

Does the success open up the possibility of more John Wick movies though? That’s a tough one to answer at this point although all signs point to a yes. If nothing else, there’s The Continental TV series in development; a spin-off centered around the ominous hotel that provides shelter to assassins, provided they abide by its mysterious code and strict set of rules.

John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum is running in theaters now. Check out some posters and clips from the movie. If you’ve seen the film, let us know what you thought about it in the comments below.
