Having been pushed from its original 2021 date, fans of the John Wick franchise have faced a lengthy wait for the fourth chapter in the action thriller series – and it seems that may pay off for Lionsgate as tracking figures suggest that Keanu Reeves’ latest sequel is on course to enjoy a franchise high opening at the box office.
According to Deadline, John Wick: Chapter 4 is tracking a domestic opening of between $60 million and $70 million, which would put it ahead of the $56.8 million bow of John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum, as well as giving Lionsgate its biggest launch since the pandemic.
Continuing the marketing for the film, three new clips have also have arrived online this week, featuring Keanu Reeves’ titular assassin, Laurence Fishburne’s The Bowery King and Ian McShane’s Winston as well as franchise newcomers in Scott Adkins’ Killa, Shamier Anderson’s Tracker, Donnie Yen’s Caine, Bill Skarsgard’s Marquis and Clancy Brown’s The Harbinger; watch them below…
“John Wick (Keanu Reeves) uncovers a path to defeating the High Table. But before he can earn his freedom, Wick must face off against a new enemy with powerful alliances across the globe and forces that turn old friends into foes.”
John Wick: Chapter 4 is once again directed by Chad Stahelski and stars Keanu Reeves as John Wick, Lance Reddick as Charon, Ian McShane as Winston, and Laurence Fishburne as The Bowery King. Newcomers to the franchise include Donnie Yen (Ip Man), Japanese-British pop singer Rina Sawayama, Hiroyuki Sanada (Army of the Dead), Marko Zaror (From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series), Shamier Anderson (Wynonna Earp), Bill Skarsgård (It: Chapter Two), Scott Adkins (The Bourne Ultimatum) and Clancy Brown (The Shawshank Redemption).
