John Wick: Chapter 4 shows up for $25.8M, a similar Friday/previews to Saturday trajectory of -12%, as did John Wick Chapter 3.

That makes for a revised franchise and Lionsgate pandemic record opening of $73.5M. Worldwide start is also a franchise best, 

as we always knew it would be, with $137.5M. The Keanu Reeves movie debuted at No. 1 in each of the 71 markets where the pic opened this weekend

 Internationally, the film took in an estimated $64M overseas, exceeding all pre-release estimates for the film. Stateside,

 it’s Reeves’s second-best live-action opening, after the $91.7M made by 2003’s Matrix Reloaded, and worldwide, 

 it’s likely the actor’s second-best debut after Matrix Revolutions‘s $201.4M global start in 2003.

 John Wick joins a select few film series that set a franchise record with their fourth outing, only nine in the past 40 years. Of those nine franchises
