John Wick 3 has dethroned Avengers: Endgame from the top of the box office this weekend thanks to a pretty incredible opener. Though Avengers still continues to reign overall.
Let’s face it, someone had to take Avengers: Endgame down and of all the movies it makes sense that John Wick 3 was the one to do it. The third movie in the franchise managed to pull in an estimated $57 million over the weekend which is pretty impressive.
This shunts Avengers: Endgame down into second place as it pulled in a still impressive $29.4 million. Furthermore, the movie has now managed to domestically surpass Avatar as the highest grossing movie. Avatar has reigned for a while with a domestic gross of $760.5 million, but that’s been surpassed now as Endgame scores $770 million.
Of course, this means Detective Pikachu has fallen down to third place with an estimated $24.8 million putting it just ahead of new entry A Dog’s Journey which earns a respectable $8 million at the box office.
The only other new entry in the box office this week is The Sun is Also A Star which earned $2.6 million.
STX Entertainment’s recent releases round out the box office top ten with Poms and Ugly Dolls earning $2 million and $1.6 million, respectively, both of which suffering a drop of over 61% week-on-week.
