It is a widely known fact that Endgame has been number one in the Box Office since it's very day of release. But it seems like John Wick 3 is about to finally dethrone them.
'John Wick: Parabellum' is set to hit theaters this week and if the experts are correct, the movie might be able to topple the collection of 'Avengers: Endgame' from its three-week run in the box office finally sending the Marvel Studios film to second place. According to a report by Variety, it suggests that the third John Wick movie will make somewhere between 30-$34 million in its opening weekend while Avengers: Endgame, on the other hand, has dropped at least 57 percent the last two weekends.
If Endgame manages to keep up this pace of decline in between the third and the fourth weekend, the movie will gross somewhere around $27.2m domestically. This will be just shy of John Wick: Parabellum's $30 million+ haul. 'Avengers: Endgame' has earned around $2.5 billion worldwide and it has already become the second highest grossing movie of all time. But the hype around the most anticipated superhero movie has died down considerably and the third entry in the John Wick franchise has been receiving amazing reviews since its release.
Tracing back the records, the John Wick movies have not been overwhelmingly successful at the box office, even though the movies were able able to draw pretty well against their relatively low budgets. The second installment of the movie ended up making $92.02m in the domestic box office and it made $171.5 million worldwide. while the first movie grossed $43.04m domestically and $88.8 million worldwide.
John Wick is one of the biggest franchises in the world and even though the movies have not been phenomenal at the box office, they have definitely been able to connect with the audience. In the third movie, Keanu Reeves is back as Mr. Wick to kick some serious butt. Parabellum has also received positive reviews from the critics. Rotten Tomatoes has rated the movie with 98% and the performance by Keanu Reeves and Halle Berry have also been praised by the critics. Some are even saying that this is the best movie of the franchise. The first movie was released in 2014, followed by the second movie in 2017.
