John Wick Comes Out Guns Blazing to Take Out the Avengers

John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum

Something eventually had to unseat Avengers: Endgame from the top of the box office, and it was John Wick that did it. John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum was the top of the box office with a better than expected $57 million. The film was a crowd favorite receiving an “A-” CinemaScore from the opening day audience. The film “debuted” with a $5.9 million Thursday night preview which is the largest for Lionsgate behind Twilight and the Hunger Games franchises. It’s more than double the $2.2 million John Wick: Chapter 2 earned two years ago.

Parabellum continues the trend of the movie franchise improving upon itself showing it has been gaining an audience over the years. The debut, John Wick, earned $14.4 million opening weekend going on to gross $43 million ($46.7 million adjusted for inflation) domestically in 2014. Worldwide, that film earned $88.8 million. John Wick: Chapter 2 opened with $30.4 million and went on to gross $92 million ($93.8 million adjusted for inflation) domestically and $171.5 million worldwide. John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum has almost out-earned the second film having already made $149.2 million worldwide (it has earned $92.2 million at the foreign box office).

With that success, there’s little doubt we’ll be seeing John Wick: Chapter 4 before too long.

In second place was Avengers: Endgame which earned $29.4 million after four weeks. Domestically, the film has earned $770.8 million and has passed Avatar to be the second highest grossing film domestically. Star Wars: The Force Awakens has the top honor having earned $936.7 million in 2015. It’s unlikely Avengers: Endgame will pass it. Worldwide, Endgame now stands at $2.615 billion putting it about $174 million behind Avatar to become the highest grossing film worldwide. There’s a chance it’ll pass it but will have to rely on the foreign box office to do so.

Detective Pikachu came in third place and expanded its theater count. It earned an estimated $24.8 million to bring its domestic total to $94 million. The film has earned $112.4 million at the foreign box office. That brings the worldwide total to $112.4 million after two weeks. With a budget of $150 million, it does have a bit to go to get in the profitable realm. It currently ranks fourth domestically when it comes to video game adaptations

In fourth place was the debut of A Dog’s Journey. The film earned an estimated $8 million. That film received an “A” Cinemascore from audiences and should have a nice run as a family friendly film.

Rounding out the top five was The Hustle which earned $6.1 million to bring its total to $23.1 million.

When it comes to comic films….

Captain Marvel dropped to #14 from #11 earning $727,000 after 11 weeks at the box office. The film stands at $425.1 million domestically.

Shazam! was right behind Captain Marvel coming in at #15. The previous week the film was #12. It earned $681,000 to bring its domestic total to $137.9 million after seven weeks.

Stay tuned, we’ll be back in an hour for a deeper dive look at this year and last year’s comic adaptations.

Review: John Wick Volume 1

John Wick Volume 1

Who doesn’t love a great origin story? Especially when it comes to a beloved character! One such character is John Wick. His film debut should have been just another movie about assassins but was so much more. It was both sophisticated and action packed. A rare combination in action movies, it worked so well that it has spawned sequels with a third coming this year. The most alluring part of the story is the mythology that is introduced. It’s like none ever seen in any story about assassins.

As the vernacular, the rules they live by, the world that is built inside these movies has made Keanu Reeves a second life as an action movie star. The protagonist is as interesting as any that could be onscreen these days, both complex and heartfelt. I always wondered how did he get into his world in the first place? How did he get familiar? How was his experience? In the first volume of John Wick we find out just how he got into this world and how he became who he is.

We find in El Paso, Texas, on a job where he deals with antagonizers and we get a glimpse of who John was when he was a kid. This is where we find out this particular job was personal, as we also meet a younger Charron, were it was a professional job for him. We also find that there is more than one Hotel Continental, this one being in El Paso, as he finds out about the rules that every assassin lives by, and what can and cannot go down within hotel walls.

Overall, an interesting origin story for a well-liked movie character, one that lives in infamy and legend. The story by Greg Pak is explosive and innovative. The art by Giovanni Valletta is alluring. Altogether, an engaging story that does more to introduce the audience to this world than the movies.

Joe

Top Picks: Daredevil #601 (Marvel) – The Mayor Fisk arc has been wonderful, and with the twist from last issue I am waiting what this one will bring. This is turning into one of the best runs on Daredevil I have read in years, and Soule and Garney keep rolling!

Infinity Countdown #2 (Marvel) – The Adam Warlock issue and the first issue of this event that is leading to another event (but don’t call it an event!) was filled with great set up. I am more than excited that Logan is back, and the characters they chose to have the infinity stones is very interesting and should lead to some great fun.

The Avengers #689 (Marvel) – Every week this comic delivers classic Avengers action while jugging many team members and creators, and I can not recommend it enough.

Action Comics #1000 (DC) – A landmark moment for comics, superheroes, and the one to spawn generation after generation of heroes. This is the guy who made it cool to wear the underwear on the outside (wait that’s not cool?). One thousand issues is insane!

The Black Monday Murders Vol. 2 (Image Comics) –  I love this creepy detective occult series and this volume is just as wild as the first. Hickman is one of the best writers around today, so do not miss this!

 

Shay

Fight Club 2 TP (Dark Horse) – I am fangirling pretty hard for this soft cover version of my signed never taken off the shelf hard cover copy. Finally a copy that can come with me and an excuse to reread it.

Harley Quinn #42 (DC Comics) – I’ve been warming to the new team behind Harley and I am a sucker for seeing what the future holds my favorite villain.

John Wick #2 (Dynamite Entertainment) – More of the John Wick origin story and it should keep me going until the 3rs installment comes out next year.

Kick-Ass #3 (Image Comics) – Patience Lee is taking names and kicking ass so obviously I am all the way here for it.

Runaways TP Vol. 10 (Marvel) – Teens being teens and trying to save the world the way teens would.

Calexit #1 (4th Printing) (Black Mask Studios) – Because it is the start of an amazing series!

 

Brett

Top Pick: Fence #5 (BOOM! Studios) – BOOM! has been killing it with sports series that bring the popular manga genre to the west and this series is one of the best out there. Great characters, interaction, and stories.

Lucy Dreaming #2 (BOOM! Studios) – A fun start that seems to blend the magical girl genre with sci-fi.

Mister Miracle #8 (DC Comics) – One of the most intriguing comics out today. The second half of this series has me excited to see where it all goes and what the creative team has in store. A brilliant maxi-series and will absolutely be on many best of lists.

James Bond: The Body #4 (Dynamite Entertainment) – An intriguing series that has explored Bond in a new way and really breaking down the character in various aspects. A must for any Bond fan.
