John Wick: Chapter 3 Grosses $5.9 Million On Its First Night Box Office

John Wick Chapter 3 already has a really solid start. An impressive $5.9 million has been made by John Wick as its opening night box office collection. The show has seen an increase by 600% from the primary John Wick film, which took in $950,000, on its Thursday night showings. John Wick 3 has built on the $2.2 million from the previous installation. The $5.9 John Wick has made is far more impressive when we consider the fact that the film is R-rated, an element which sometimes restricts a film to earn more at the box office.

To compare, John Wick: Chapter 3 exceeded the Thursday box office collection of popular PG-13 films like James Bond: Spectre, which hauled $4.6 million. The next John Wick chapter is expected to gross somewhere around $80 million during the first weekend if it continues outdoing films. For now, Avengers: Endgame rules the box office from a satisfying margin.

In the fourth weekend, Endgame took $3.4 million, which topped everything which wasn’t titled as John Wick. Endgame is expected to make around $30 million more domestically this weekend. However, John Wick may land close to $50 million, which will make it the first film to topple Endgame since the epic Marvel crossover has debuted.
