Marvel Studios' Avengers: Endgame is currently witnessing its phenomenal run at the box office. And while the movie has created and broken records in its three-week reign at the box-office worldwide, domestically its crown might get thrown by Lionsgate's John Wick 3. The third installment of the gun-toting action franchise is going to open in 3700 screens in North America and is expected to have an opening weekend between $30 million and $35 million. And some optimistic trade analysts also predict that if the movie receives a positive word of mouth then the numbers could propel to a whopping $40 million. And if this happens then the Keanu Reeves-led movie will dampen the speed of Avengers: Endgame.
After having a historic $357 million launch, the Marvel studios' juggernaut is witnessing a drop of 58% in ticket sales. If the decline occurs, the movie will collect around $27 million. And if John Wick is not able to dethrone Endgame, then the movie will become the first movie after Black Panther to sustain the top spot for four consecutive weeks. Black Panther, which released in 2018, retained the top spot for five consecutive weeks at the domestic box office.
Currently, Avengers: Endgame is the third-highest grossing movie of all time at the domestic box office. The first two spots are taken by Avatar ($760 million) and Star Wars: The Force Awakens ($936 million). Meanwhile, worldwide the movie has created records and it’s still the second-biggest film globally with $2.48 billion, just behind Avatar’s that has a lifetime collection of $2.78 billion.
John Wicks 3 will see the return of Reeves playing the titular character of an ex-hitman who finds himself on the run from assassins after a hit is put on his head. Ex-stuntman and now a director Chad Stahelski will return to directing the movie. While the series is written by series-creator Derek Kolstad. Halle Berry and Laurence Fishburne complete the cast.
Avengers: Endgame featured a stellar star cast comprising Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Don Cheadle, Paul Rudd, and others.
