Keanu Reeves returning for John Wick: Chapter 4 in 2021

After setting a franchise best opening at the global box office this past weekend with the release of John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum, Lionsgate has wasted little time in announcing another outing for Keanu Reeves’ former hitman.

As reported by Variety, Lionsgate sent a text message to fans on Monday which read: “You have served. You will be of service. John Wick: Chapter 4 is coming – May 21, 2021.” As yet, there are no further details, but it seems safe to assume that the fourth movie will reunite Reeves with director Chad Stahelski and writer Derek Kolstad.

The John Wick franchise seems to be going from strength to strength, with Parabellum proving a smash hit with fans and critics alike, and outperforming the combined opening weekends of the first two instalments at the North American box office, where it dethroned Avengers: Endgame this past weekend.

John Wick: Chapter 3 dethrones Avengers: Endgame to top the box office with franchise best opening

After three weeks of decimating the box office, Avengers: Endgame has fallen from the top of the charts this weekend courtesy of Keanu Reeves and the hotly-anticipated John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum.

The third instalment in the acclaimed action series opened in first place in North America and topped tracking estimates of $50 million with an opening haul of $57 million. Throw in a further $35.2 million from 66 markets, and that adds up to a franchise best global bow of $92.2 million.

John Wick is a unique character and franchise that has grown in popularity from film-to-film and keeps getting better and better, thanks to the incredible talent of Keanu Reeves and because of the creativity and true artistry of the filmmaking team and our partners at Thunder Road, as well as director Chad Stahelski,” said Joe Drake, chairman of the Lionsgate Motion Picture Group. “This is the best-reviewed film of the series so far,

Adult Audience Animation: Cannes Panel Talks Big-Screen Strategy

  • Variety
Cannes–A panel of leading animation industry executives gathered during the Cannes Film Market on Sunday to shed light on their strategies for the theatrical release of adult-oriented animated features.

It was a timely conversation at this year’s Cannes Film Festival. Five of the 28 animated projects in the Marché du Film are adult audience-focused, including two in the official selection, noted Annemie Degryse, CEO and producer of Belgium’s Lunanime, while moderating “The A-z Game Plan to Releasing Animated Films for Adults for the Big Screen.” Yet even as adult-oriented animation is enjoying greater critical acclaim than ever before, its commercial prospects are often limited.

“Finding the audience is always difficult for adult [targeting] movies,” said Carole Baraton, co-founder of Paris-based sales agent Charades. While family animation – despite its ups and downs – has had an established model for box-office success since the early days of Disney, adult-oriented animated features are still largely seen as niche-oriented.

Wes Anderson has given his first interview about his new movie “The French Dispatch” to French publication Charente Libre (via The Playlist), revealing principal photography finished in mid-March. The film was shot on location in Angoulême, France, which Anderson returned to this month to film a dance scene involving local students over four days.

As for the rumor Brad Pitt might appear, Anderson said that’s not the case.

Up until now, all that has been known about “The French Dispatch” plot is that the film is a “love letter to journalists set at an outpost of an American newspaper in 20th-century Paris.” Anderson said the secrecy around the film has
