John Wick: Chapter 4, a Lionsgate action-thriller starring Keanu Reeves, has been performing well at the box office since its release. During its first weekend, the film made $73.5 million in the US, setting a new record for the studio at the post-pandemic box office. In its second week, the movie earned another $28 million, bringing its cumulative North American box office total to $122.6 million. This figure is expected to rise further.
Despite a 62% drop in its second weekend, which is common for franchise films after the opening weekend, the movie has helped Lionsgate break its own records at the box office. Additionally, John Wick: Chapter 4 has been performing well overseas, generating $137.5 million in 71 international markets during its first weekend. The film is currently playing in 75 total markets, and Lionsgate expects it to exceed $225 million at the worldwide box office over the weekend.
Although the film faces competition from Paramount’s Dungeons and Dragons: Honor Among Thieves, which has received positive reviews and generated $5.6 million during Thursday night previews and $15.3 million on Friday, John Wick: Chapter 4 is still expected to dominate the box office. Overall, the movie is on track to be another success for the John Wick franchise.
