Avengers: Endgame John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum was finally knocked off as reigning champ at the box office, after holding the number one spot for the last three weeks.

Taking the top spot was newcomer John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum, which follows super-assassin John Wick (Keanu Reeves) as he teams up with hit woman Sofia (Halle Berry) after a $14 million bounty is placed on his head. The film earned $57 million, well above expectations and higher than its two predecessors, 2014’s John Wick ($14.4 million) and 2017’s John Wick: Chapter 2 ($30.4). It was also Keanu Reeves’ second-biggest opening weekend of all time, after The Matrix Reloaded‘s $91 million debut back in 2003.

Moving to second spot was Avengers: Endgame, which took in an estimated $29.4 million this past weekend for a domestic total of $770.8 million. Read our review by clicking here.
