Few things we like more than see Keanu Reeves piling up corpses with their designer suits, their beards, and their hair blowing in the wind. Since it premiered in 2014 with its surprising first adventure, the ‘John Wick’ saga has evolved in crescendo, increasing its show levels, its technical and formal flourishes, and the complexity of combat choreographies that have made half the world fall in love with. .
As expected, this idyll has translated into an indisputable success at the international box office that has allowed the film series to enter the select club of billion-dollar franchises. Specifically, the four installments released to date already add up to a total, by no means negligible, of 1,011 million dollars, occupying position number 91 in the ranking just behind ‘Saw’.
These come from the sum of the $425.3 million harvested by a quarter —still active—, the 326.7 of ‘Parabellum’, the 171.5 of ‘Blood Pact’ and the 87.8 million dollars that the first ‘John Wick’ amassed, released covertly in many markets and, in the case of Spanish, directly on television.
At Lionsgate, as the folks at Deadline pick it up—and obviously—they’re delighted with the fantastic performance of their, so far, quadrilogy. Joe Drake, President of the Feature Films Division of the company, has celebrated the good news as follows:
“This milestone is a testament to the incredible work of Chad Stahelski and Keanu Reeves, along with Basil Iwanyk and Erica Lee, who have set out to better themselves with every film in this franchise. We couldn’t be more grateful to viewers around the world. world for leading us to this incredible achievement.”
To the ‘John Wick’ saga He still has a lot of bullets left in the chamber., beginning with its spinoff ‘Ballerina’ starring Ana de Armas and continuing with future projects focused on other characters from its peculiar universe of assassins that are already beginning to be considered in the Lionsgate offices. As long as they maintain the level seen to date, they are welcome.
