‘John Wick: Chapter 4’ To Make Surprise Debut At SXSW


Lionsgate was at SXSW last year with the world premiere of The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent, and it’s back in 2023 with what we’ve confirmed is a secret screening of John Wick: Chapter 4. The screening will take place early next week.

Deadline told you recently that the fourthquel is headed to a franchise-best debut at the domestic box office with a projected $60 million-$70 million opening weekend when it bows March 24. The pic sees the return of the franchise’s filmmaker Chad Stahelski, and it wouldn’t be shocking if he and Reeves showed up at this SXSWevent — in fact, it would be strange if they didn’t. Both made a surprise appearance at San Diego Comic-Con in July, when they dropped the first trailer.

The previous movie in the nine-year-old franchise, John Wick: Chapter 3 — Parabellum, opened to $56.8M in May 2019 and finaled at $171M domestic, $328.3M worldwide, in what was the highest-grossing installment in the franchise that has grossed $585.5M globally to date.

SXSW kicks off Friday with the world premiere of Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves.
