Talking Spoilers and John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum

How the ‘John Wick 3’ team and an NBA player pulled off that fight in a library

There's all this talk about the Game of Thrones finale, but also John Wick 3 topping Avengers: Endgame in its opening weekend, with Endgame topping Avatar at the domestic box office.

Parabellum's $57 million opening is the best-ever for the franchise, exceeding the first movie's opening-weekend haul of $14.4 million and the $30.4 million that John Wick 2 took in back in 2017.

With its domestic total at $771 million (it took in $29.4 million over the weekend), the movie is now number two all-time domestically, passing "Avatar" ($760.5 million).

Star Wars: The Force Awakens remains the highest-grossing film of all time at the domestic box office, having made $936.6m.

With "Endgame" now reaching $2.615 billion worldwide, it is getting even closer to dethroning "Avatar" as the worldwide highest grossing movie off all time. A sequel to 2017's A Dog's objective, the film falls far short of its predecessor, which opened to $18.2 million.

John, an executive producer of the film, hadn't spoken much about the movie before it made its premiere at Cannes . I knew you could sing because I heard I'm Still Standing , which you did in the (animated) film Sing.

In "Parabellum", Keanu Reeves returns as the titular ex-hitman who finds himself on the run from assassins.

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. It became a big hit with global audiences, grossing $140 million overseas.

Most disappointing, however, is the young adult adaptation "The Sun Is Also a Star" which grossed only $2.6 million from over 2,000 screens and landed in eighth place. "It's tough when one movie over performs by this kind of magnitude". Although modestly budgeted at a reported $9 million, and featuring popular television actors such as "Riverdale's" Charles Melton and "grown-ish's" Yara Shahidi, the Warner Bros. -released film failed to connect even with the audiences who turned out, 75% of whom were women. The third installment received an 89 percent on Rotten Tomatoes, the same as the second installment, and three percentage points better than the original.

Last week's con-artist comedy The Hustle rounds out the top five with an estimated $6.1 million in ticket sales across 3,077 theaters.
