‘John Wick: Chapter 3’ Dethrones ‘Avengers: Endgame’ From Top of Box Office

Action threequel set to become Lionsgate’s biggest opening in nearly four years

The No. 1 streak for “Avengers: Endgame” has been snapped by Lionsgate’s “John Wick: Chapter 3 — Parabellum,” which made $22.6 million on Friday from 3,850 screens and is now on track for a strong $56 million opening weekend.

Not only would that result be nearly double the $30.4 million opening for 2017’s “John Wick: Chapter 2,” it would also be the largest opening weekend for a Lionsgate release since the end of the “Hunger Games” series back in November 2015. The final film in the Jennifer Lawrence YA novel adaptation series, “Mockingjay — Part 2,” opened to $102 million.
