WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum tops the chart with 57MM, which is almost twice as much as Chapter 2's opening weekend, and over a third more than the original made in its entire domestic run. Avengers: Endgame, dethroned, places with 29.4MM on a 54 percent drop -- but shed no tears for the second-biggest domestic grosser ever; it's 173MM away from becoming the all-time worldwide box office champ (and it's likely to get a bump as we come up on the next Spider-Man flick in June). Pokemon Detective Pikachu shows with 24.8MM on a 54 percent drop (which seems good for a film that one would predict as front-loaded);at ~200MM worldwide, it seems to be healthy. A Dog's Journey takes the fourth slot with 8MM (the budget is not public, but how much can it be?). The Hustle rounds out the Top Five with 6MM and a 23MM domestic total that is nowhere near Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, even before adjusting for inflation.
