‘John Wick: Chapter 4’ took first place at the box office, earning $73.5 million domestically in its opening weekend. The film easily beat ‘Shazam! Fury of the Gods,’ now in its second weekend.
In North America, the fourth installment in the John Wick franchise bested the $56.8 million opening of 2019’s John Wick: Chapter 3 — Parabellum — and marked Lionsgate’s biggest domestic opening of the pandemic era.
Directed by Chad Stahelski, ‘John Wick: Chapter 4’ once again stars Keanu Reeves as the expert assassin nicknamed Baba Yaga. The cast also features Donnie Yen, Bill Skarsgard, Laurence Fishburne, Hiroyuki Sanada, Shamier Anderson, Rina Sawayama, Ian McShane and the late Lance Reddick, who died earlier this month. The film is produced by Basil Iwanyk, Erica Lee and Stahelski.
‘Scream VI’ took the No. 3 spot, with ‘Creed III’ following at No. 4, and ’65’ rounding out the top five.
