‘John Wick’ topples ‘Avengers: Endgame’ on opening weekend

‘John Wick’ topples ‘Avengers: Endgame’ on opening weekend

But this weekend, Endgame has taken another step toward that, racing past Avatar's ticket sales domestically. But down at #22 is Captain Marvel, which came out in March and has been getting some extra box office juice from the release of Endgame not quite two months later.

Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. However, it has also finally hit an iceberg, this one in the form of Keanu Reeves.

In a distant fourth place, forecasters look for Universal's A Dog's Journey to bring in about $11.2 million for its opening weekend. After three weeks of "Avengers: Endgame" ruling the box office, the third chapter in the John Wick franchise topped "Avengers: Endgame" and took over the number one spot.

Going by the way these new movies are edging closer and closer to Avatar, we can't but keep our fingers crossed as to who gets there first.

John Wick racks up an enormous opening weekend that far exceeds expectations, beating both of its predecessors (the first John Wick opened to $14.4 million in 2014, while Chapter Two took in $30.4 million in 2017). However, "Chapter 2" did go on to make over $100 million worldwide. It has already made more than the first movie's domestic total, almost doubled the opening weekend for "Chapter 2", and should end its theatrical run with a franchise-best worldwide. Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for the latest news on the future of the John Wick franchise as we learn it. The stuntmen who had worked with Reeves previously, Chad Stahelski and David Leitch (who has since gone on to direct "Deadpool 2" and the upcoming "Fast and Furious Presents: Hobbs and Shaw"), proved to be skilled filmmakers who brought action to the screen that fans had never seen before.

Pokémon Detective Pikachu placed third with $24.8 million and A Dog's Journey opened in fourth with an underwhelming $8 million. According to Comscore, 37% of moviegoers said "Actor in the lead role" was their primary reason for seeing the film, which reflects Reeves' enormous box office power (at least in this particular part). John Wick didn't miss his shot.
