'John Wick' Beats 'Avengers' with $56 Million Opening

Lionsgate

Parabellum" debuted ahead of projections with $57 million, easily beating out "Endgame " s $29.4 million in its fourth weekend.

Ever since it released, Avengers: Endgame has been ruling the box office. Endgame was No. 1 with $29.4 million, while Detective Pikachu was No. 3 with $24.8 million.

This weekend's other major new release, The Sun Is Also a Star, based on Nicola Yoon's YA novel of the same name, majorly disappointed at the box office.

Cast member Keanu Reeves arrives for a screening of the movie "John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum" in Los Angeles, California, U.S. May 15, 2019.

Avengers: Endgame is up at #2 on the list of highest-grossing films of all time, just behind Avatar.

Honestly, despite the dark and violent subject material of the films, everyone wants Keanu Reeves to succeed, and these John Wick movies bring out the best in Keanu's supportive audience - there's something very underdog about both the films and the actor. "John Wick 3" is rated R, and although it will still have a strong box office weekend, it will not attract families going to the theater.

Christchurch attacker charged with terrorism
Police said the decision to lay the terror charge was made after consultations with prosecutors and government legal experts. The accused gunman is next expected to appear in the High Court in June.

Worldwide, Endgame is now at $2.615 billion, around $170 million away from Avatar's all-time record. The monster Marvel hit has now earned $771 million at the domestic box office, passing "Avatar"'s $761 million record. Forbes also predicts the film will conclude its domestic run with $850 million, with a further $1.9 billion internationally.

Despite being dethroned by John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum at the USA box office for the first time since its release, Marvel's Avengers: Endgame reached a major milestone over its fourth weekend.

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.

Audiences were less enthused for "A Dog's Journey", the follow-up to "A Dog's goal". Starring Grown-ish actress Yara Shahidi and Riverdale heartthrob Charles Melton, the teen romance follows two high-school students who fall in love in the course of a single day in New York City. It got a poor B- CinemaScore.

Ticket sales are have fallen around 10% behind previous year, according to Comscore.
