After having had a really amazing reception from the critics for the third time in one row, John Wick has earned a huge number at the Box Office. The very first movie had been produced with a budget of $20 Million and had earned $88 Million. The Rotten Tomatoes Score was 87%. Then, the second movie earned double than the first one. After having had a great reception from all the critics, John Wick had managed to earn huge progress at the Box Office. Now, with the third movie, John Wick has earned a Rotten Tomatoes score of 89%, and it has the biggest Box Office opening in history. The domestic numbers for the movie’s very first weekend had been $57 Million. These are way higher as compared to the opening numbers of the first and the second chapters, which had been $14 Million and $30 Million. With every movie that had released, the fan base has stayed while all the new ones had joined in.
Another huge achievement during the opening is that Avengers: Endgame has now been officially dethroned from the big spot of domestic weekends after having reigned for the last consecutive 3 weekends. Avengers: Endgame have now suffered one more drop in its domestic earnings, and has brought in only $29 Million to follow up last weekend’s $63 Million.
This is what the director, Chad Stahelski, said about John Wick:
“They’ve got a really good structure. It’s very tied to the film, and it’s about the Continentals all over the world, how certain people come into that world, and what happens in relation to those people, which is cool. I think the world is very vast, and everything I’ve heard from it is very positive. It’s something that studio seems very, very intent on making and very, very behind… You can be with the consigliere, concierge, the sommelier, you can be with all these different characters and walk through the world in different aspects; ones that I’m a little limited by staying with my lead guy.”
This is the official synopsis John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum:
“John Wick (Keanu Reeves) is on the run for two reasons… he’s being hunted for a global $14 million dollar open contract on his life, and for breaking a central rule: taking a life on Continental Hotel grounds. The victim was a member of the High Table who ordered the open contract. John should have already been executed, except the Continental’s manager, Winston, has given him a one-hour grace period before he’s “Excommunicado” – membership revoked, banned from all services and cut off from other members. John uses the service industry to stay alive as he fights and kills his way out of New York City.”
