John Wick: Chapter 4 exploded onto the scene with a phenomenal box office debut. Thursday night previews for Keanu Reeves’ new film grossed $8.9 million, delighting Lionsgate with those initial numbers. Chapter 4 is expected to surpass its predecessor, John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum, which boasted a respectable $56.8 million opening weekend. Every installment in the series has seen steady growth, and industry experts believe John Wick: Chapter 4 is on track to earn between $65 million and $70 million this weekend alone.

The future of the John Wick franchise

While the current entry looks promising in surpassing its predecessor, which grossed a staggering $328.3 million worldwide, the future of the series remains uncertain. Shazam! Fury of the Gods, for example, can face significant challenges given the strength of its competitor.

Director Chad Stahelski spoke to The Hollywood Reporter about the possibility of future films in the series. He explained, “In our minds, Keanu and I are done for now. We’ll let John rest. Stahelski went on to say that if the film is well received and generates enough interest, they might consider continuing the story.

Rating John Wick: The Hit Chapter 4

It’s easy to forget that the John Wick series began with the relatively low stakes of a stolen car and a dead dog. Each subsequent film has raised the bar, with the latest entry being no exception.

In the first film, the main character, played by Keanu Reeves, embarks on a journey fueled by revenge after losing his wife and the puppy she left him as a parting gift. As the series progressed, John Wick became more entangled in the dark underworld of hitmen, with director Chad Stahelski and Reeves pushing the boundaries of high-octane stunts and action sequences. . Chapter 4 managed to elevate the intensity of previous episodes, its only downside being an increasingly convoluted narrative.
