John Wick will return in 2021.
Following Chapter 3 — Parabellum’s #1 box office debut — knocking Avengers: Endgame from the top after a three-week run — John Wick 4 has been confirmed. Not only that, the sequel has a release date: May 21, 2021.
The first John Wick movie opened in 2014 and grossed just under $90 million total, while its 2017 sequel made $172 million lifetime. The third movie, which debuted last Friday, made $57 million domestically and another $36 million overseas ($93 million total), greatly outpacing John Wick 2.
News of the sequel was announced via text message, using the same service that revealed the first trailer for Chapter 3: “You have served. You will be of service. John Wick: Chapter 4 is coming – May 21, 2021.”
What started as a simple story of revenge — of Keanu Reeves shooting up a lot bad guys as revenge for the death of his dog — has turned into a full universe.
