The Keanu Reeves-led threequel drew in big numbers for the studio, outperforming expectations with a $57 million domestic opening and a global total of $92.2M. It marked Lionsgate’s highest opening since November 2015’s The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2‘s $102.6M. The pic earned an A- CinemaScore and currently has a 88% fresh Rotten Tomatoes score.
The studio didn’t comment on whether Reeves will reprise his titular role.
Also starring Laurence Fishburne, Ian McShane, Lance Reddick and Halle Berry, the Chad Stahelski-directed John Wick 3 starts off with Wick having a $14 million price tag on his head and an army of bounty-hunting killers on his trail. After killing a member of the shadowy international assassin’s guild the High Table, Wick is excommunicado, but the world’s most ruthless hit men and women await his every turn.
