Box Office: “Avengers: Endgame” Is Now the 2nd Highest Film of All Time, “John Wick 3” Wins The Weekend


As we surmised yesterday, “Avengers: Endgame” is now the 2nd highest grossing film of all time. It knocked off “Avatar.” We’re waiting for James Cameron’s response.

Keanu Reeves surprised everyone and made a huge career comeback with “John Wick.” The third movie in the series is number 1 this weekend, which means there will be a 4th installment. Keanu is Hollywood’s odd duck, but we all root for him. A $57 million opening weekend is pretty damn impressive.

“Poms” and “The Hustle” are pretty much dead, although the latter did a little better than the former. A lot of people thought “Poms” was the drink.

“Pokemon: Detective Pikachu” is now at $94 million, it will cross the $100 million line this week. Ryan Reynolds is really the Golden Boy of Hollywood these days. Remember when he was in flop after flop? Persistence paid off. It’s a good thing. “Deadpool: Pikachu” can’t be far off. (Reynolds’ many video calling cards are very funny. This could be one of them.)
