John Wick 3 dethrones Avengers: Endgame with $57 million

'John Wick 3′ Topples 'Avengers: Endgame' at the Box Office
Lora Ball | 20 May, 2019, 13:09

That movie debuted with $18 million and went on to earn $64 million at the domestic box office. Endgame was No. 1 with $29.4 million, while Detective Pikachu was No. 3 with $24.8 million.

According to box office estimates and Disney, Endgame will take in $29.4 million domestically - as in the USA and Canada - at the end of its fourth weekend for a total of $770.8 million in domestic ticket sales. Then 2017's "John Wick: Chapter 2" had a $30.4 million opening, which only got the movie to third place that weekend behind "The Lego Batman Movie" taking the top spot and "Fifty Shades Darker" in second place. Everything else, including the world building and the typically stellar roster of supporting and character actors (Halle Berry, Asia Kate Dillon, Angelica Huston, Mark Dacascos), is gravy.

In a press release issued when Endgame had the first $1 billion global opening in box office history, Alan Horn, chairman of Walt Disney Studios, gushed in a press release: "Kevin Feige and the Marvel Studios team have continued to challenge notions of what is possible at the movie theatre both in terms of storytelling and at the box office". Wick seems to have escaped the dismal fate of many third-chapter films with a strong box office, and beating the summer's biggest blockbuster on its opening is another feather in its cap.

"Avengers: Endgame", which slid to second place on domestic box office charts, has now earned $771 million in North America. "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" holds the number one spot for the domestic highest grossing movie of all time with $937 million. It became a big hit with worldwide audiences, grossing $140 million overseas. "Grown-ish" actress Yara Shahidi stars as a brainy student who forms a relationship with a charming exchange student ("Riverdale's" Charles Melton), as her family faces deportation. Keanu himself, of course, doesn't hurt, and each time he promotes a big movie like this, heartwarming stories about the kindness and graciousness of Keanu Reeves spill out on social media.

The romance drama, based on Nicola Yoon's novel, received mixed reviews.

Rounding out the top five is United Artist Releasing's "The Hustle", pocketing $6 million over the three-day frame.
