BOX OFFICE: ‘John Wick 3’ to dethrone ‘Endgame,’ ‘Dog’ has hard ‘Journey’

wick2“John Wick Chapter 3” did three times the Thursday night “preview” business that the last “John Wick” installment did.

That means it’ll best “Pikachu” this weekend, and take in more money than “Avengers: Endgame,” which will finally be knocked off the top of the box office mountain after weeks and weeks up there.

Good reviews, mostly. Kind of martial arts/first person shooter video-gamish, but fun.

A $50 million weekend is within reach for Keanu and “John Wick 3,” “Endgame” will pass “Avatar” by Sunday, “The sun is Also a Star” seems poised to become a bomb ($5 million) and “A Dog’s Journey” may open in the low teens. Or only earn about $10 million, depending on whether the audience has had enough of these maudlin mutt adaptations.

This will be the third in less than two years, but who’s counting?
