John Wick: Chapter 4 has made a fortune in just four weeks of release. Unsurprisingly, crowds flocked to the theaters in droves to watch Keanu Reeves enter the underworld once more.
Reeves’ legendary hitman character battles mafiosos from all over the world in the action epic as he attempts to bring down the High Table once and for all.
Chapter 4 had again another phenomenally successful week at the box office, earning an incredible $18.6 million from 76 markets, with South Korea accounting for a huge $5.9 million of that total and providing the movie with a strong start.
The most recent accomplishment increases Chapter 4’s global box office total to $349.7 million and pushes its overall overseas cumulative to $189.6 million.
The current global gross for the Chad Stahelski movie officially tops that of its predecessor, John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum, which made just over $328 million worldwide during its theatrical run.
After a fantastic opening weekend that saw it earn $137.5 million worldwide, the largest amount in the franchise thus far, the movie has done well to continue adding to its growing list of awards in the weeks thereafter.
Despite being very impressive, the numbers are somewhat expected given the film’s widespread positive reviews and coveted Tomatometer score of 94% on Rotten Tomatoes.
The movie has generally been praised for its ability to consistently deliver gun-slinging action and jaw-dropping vistas. However, Chapter 4 received a lot of appreciation for captivating spectators for about three hours during Baba Yaga’s homecoming.
In fact, Ross Bonaime of Collider praised Reeves’ most recent release for its “goofy, ridiculous, three-hours of fun that manages to not overstay its welcome” and for effectively bringing “ambition to the brink.”
