Good guy Keanu Reeves saw his career get back on track when he starred in the first John Wick movie. The small budget action flick surprised everyone in 2014 when it earned over $80 million at the worldwide box office.
John Wick 2 was released earlier this year, and it brought home $171.5 million worldwide. That’s a successful a** franchise right there, especially when you remember the fact that they were working with budgets under $40 million.
So it should not surprise you to hear that a third movie in the franchise will be coming soon. John Wick: Chapter Three will be released inside a theater near you May 17, 2019. Lionsgate announced the exciting news yesterday. Reeves will of course come back for the starring role. No word on anyone else in the cast, but we will keep you posted.
The second film in the franchise was not only a success at the box office, it also scored well with the critics. It got a terrific 90% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, improving on the 85% rating the first film received.
By the way, no other film has been set for the May 17, 2019 release date, so John Wick currently owns that day at the box office.[mashshare]
