It was very much predicted that John Wick: Chapter 3 would outdo Avengers: Endgame, and yes, this has happened with a staggering $56 million opening.
In the history of film, this is the highest opening for Lionsgate since The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 in November 2015, which pulled in $102.6 million.
Although this is the case, it’s till apparent that Avengers: Endgame is still absolutely smashing it at cinemas worldwide.
It’s been reported that Avengers: Endgame, will speed past Avatar’s lifetime domestic of $760.5 million this weekend, becoming the second highest grossing film of all time at the domestic box office with $769 million.
Some fans are already describing it as being their favourite in the franchise.
One fan tweeted:
“There are stretches of such absolute silken delirium in PARABELLUM, sequences where the action hits a pitch of sustained “DID YOU JUST FUCKING SEE THAT” finesse and mayhem, that you start to feel spoiled. And then annoyed that other action movies don’t think you deserve it.”
“#JohnWick Chapter 3 – Parabellum was insane! Watching this movie was stressful, it made me sweat, it made me gasp… it was insanely fun.”
“Unreal that stunts are not a part of the Academy Awards because they’re so insanely good here.”
It looks like the third installment will be deserving of a second watch long after the initial hype has passed.
