Lionsgate’s John Wick: Chapter 3 — Parabellum, which debuted on digital Aug. 23 and on disc Sept. 10, has sold more than 3 million units on disc, EST and VOD, according to the studio.
The title is positioned to become Lionsgate’s highest-grossing home entertainment title in five years, since the release of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 in 2014, according to the studio.
The title is the studio’s biggest-selling EST title ever, passing John Wick: Chapter 2 in its first three days of EST release.
The release overindexed in the home entertainment market with sales comparable to a $250 million-plus domestic box office film, according to the studio. The film made $171 million in U.S. theaters.
“The popularity of the John Wick franchise continues to surge with strong growth across packaged media, electronic sellthrough and video-on-demand platforms,” said Lionsgate president of worldwide home entertainment Ron Schwartz in a statement. “The success of John Wick: Chapter 3 is a testament to the film’s incredible cast, led by Keanu Reeves, and amazing creative team, the efforts of our sales and marketing executives, and the vibrancy of the home entertainment business across all of its platforms.”
In the third installment of the action franchise, super-assassin John Wick (Reeves) returns with a $14 million price tag on his head and an army of bounty-hunting killers on his trail.
John Wick: Chapter 4 will be released in theaters nationwide on May 21, 2021.
