If anyone was going to take out The Avengers, it was going to be John Wick and John Wick Chapter 3 took the top spot at the box office with an opening weekend that was more than the first John Wick made in its entire run at the box office and Keanu’s second highest opening of all time.
Avengers: Endgame continues to absolutely dominate the box office both domestically and worldwide as it closes in on the all-time box office record set by Avatar with over $2.188 billion made so far worldwide.
