'John Wick' Franchise Exceeds $1 Billion Worldwide
"John Wick" is become a multibillion-dollar franchise. Lionsgate's Keanu Reeves-led action series has reached $1 billion in worldwide box office revenues, totaling $1.011 billion over four films.
It was carried over by "John Wick: Chapter 4," which is now the top grossing film with $425 million to date.
The most recent entry, which costs $100 million, debuted in March to $73.5 million, setting a new domestic franchise record.
"John Wick" is one of the few franchises that has grown in popularity with each chapter. The first film grossed $86.1 million in 2014,
but it became a sleeper hit in home entertainment, while the 2017 sequel grossed $174.3 million. "Parabellum,"
the highest-grossing film previous to "Chapter 4," grossed $328.3 million worldwide in 2019. "This milestone is a testament to the incredible work of Chad Stahelski and Keanu Reeves,
alongside Basil Iwanyk and Erica Lee, who have made it their mission to outdo themselves with each successive film in this franchise,
Joe Drake, chairman of the Lionsgate Motion Picture Group, said. "We couldn't be more grateful to global moviegoers for introducing us to this incredible opportunity."
