The new John Wick movie, Chapter 3, is very popular. After another strong performance at the box office in its second weekend, Chapter 3 has now made $175.4 million worldwide.
What that means is John Wick 3 needed just two weeks to surpass the amount of money that John Wick 2 made during its entire theatrical run ($171.5 million). To put that number in context even further, the first John Wick made $88 million worldwide over its lifetime. The franchise is getting more popular with every release, which probably explains why John Wick 4 was announced so early. In addition, there is a John Wick film spin-off in the works, while a TV show called The Continental is also in development.
The John Wick series stars The Matrix actor Keanu Reeves as an assassin with a price on his head. He mows down everyone in his path. The series also features Laurence Fishburn, Lance Reddick, and Ian McShane, while Chapter 3 added Halle Barry and Anjelica Huston. The movie was directed by Chad Stahelski, who also made John Wick 1 and 2.
The creator of John Wick and the film’s writer, Derek Kolstad, is presumably involved with John Wick 4 in addition to his newly announced job as the writer of the Just Cause video game movie.
John Wick 4 is coming, but all we know so far is a release date: May 21, 2021. The ending to John Wick 3 certainly set up another story to be told. Here’s to hoping that Reeves and Stahelski return for the fourth movie.
