“John Wick: Chapter 4” has officially broken the record for the franchise’s biggest opening weekend, with the previous three films earning $14 million, $30.4 million, and $56.8 million for “John Wick,” “John Wick: Chapter 2,” and “John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum,” respectively.

Variety stated that the “John Wick” franchise has challenged the belief that sequels tend to perform worse than the first film. Surprisingly, each successive film in the franchise has outperformed the previous one at the box office.

“John Wick: Chapter 4” is the highest-grossing movie in the franchise, surpassing the previous record holder, “John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum,” which earned $328.3 million worldwide. The first “John Wick” movie had a global box office of $86.1 million, while its sequel collected $174.3 million.

The success of the franchise has led to two spinoffs: “Ballerina,” starring Ana de Armas as an assassin similar to John Wick, and “The Continental,” a Peacock TV miniseries set in the “John Wick” universe in 1975.
