Now Playing: John Wick: Chapter 3 Parabellum - Official Trailer

After three straight weeks at No. 1, Marvel's hit movie, Avengers: Endgame, has finally been dethroned at the North American box office.

The latest weekend numbers are in, and John Wick Chapter 3: Parabellum made $57 million in the US/Canada this weekend to sit in the No. 1 position, according to Entertainment Weekly. Endgame was No. 2 with $29.4 million, while Detective Pikachu was No. 3 with $24.8 million.

Parabellum's $57 million opening is the best-ever for the franchise, far exceeding the first movie's opening-weekend haul of $14.4 million and the $30.4 million that John Wick 2 took in back in 2017. Parabellum made $36 million from overseas markets, which brings its total opening-weekend box office performance to performance to around $93 million for a very strong start.

As for Endgame, the movie has now made $2.62 billion worldwide, which remains behind the biggest movie of all-time: Avatar ($2.78 billion).

Domestically, Endgame becomes the second-biggest film ever with $771 million in box office receipts; it surpassed Avatar ($761 million) but remains behind Star Wars: The Force Awakens ($937 million).
