Interesting Facts You Didn’t Know about John Wick
While John Wick's contract killing days are over, and the assassin world he inhabits mostly runs on a currency of gold coins, the money involved in each John Wick film is far beyond that seen on screen, with John's bounty coming to a relatively measly $14million.
John Wick had a production budget of $20million, with a worldwide gross of $88,761,661. It was a modest success, and doubling down on the budget for John Wick: Chapter 2 ($40million) proved a brilliant idea, as it would go on to gross $171,539,887 worldwide; once again, over four times the production budget.
And with John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum having a reported $75million budget, you'd be forgiven for thinking it surely couldn't keep the momentum, but you'd be wrong. At the time of writing, John Wick 3 has grossed $303,615,088; batting three for three on a gross of four times the production budget.
This brings the overall gross of the trilogy to $563,916,636, meaning a contract killer would have to claim John's bounty 40 times to earn as much as the franchise. Given that killing one John Wick has seen hundreds of professional killers left dead in his wake, I'd say that is truly an "impossible task".
