After a few weeks on the thrones at the box office, Avengers: Endgame has been removed from the top by John Wick. The numbers are in!

Which movie did you catch in theaters this weekend? A few new debuts arrived, but all the focus centered on John Wick: Chapter 3 — Parabellum, starring Keanu Reeves, Halle Berry, Ian McShane, and others. The third movie in the assassin franchise gathered $149.2 million worldwide ($57 million domestically, $92 million overseas).

As much action as John Wick 3 packs, it still leaves us wanting more. Fingers crossed there are more chapters to come! In the meantime, if you haven’t watched the trilogy, you’re missing out!

Also new at the movies are A Dog’s Journey and The Sun is Also a Star. You’ll find Dog’s Journey at No. 4 with a solid $8 million. The latter, however, barely made it to the Top 10, according to Box Office Mojo, and is at No. 8 with a low $2.6 million.

Other movies to note in the countdown is how quickly Uglydolls is leaving the top 10. That movie is severely underrated, if you haven’t checked it out with the kids, do so.

Detective Pikachu collected another $29.4 million to add to its total, which is now a very cool $206 million. Franchise in the making? We hope so! According to reports, the movie was put together with a total of $150 million.  

Here are the top ten movies of the weekend, from Friday, May 17, to Sunday, May 19:
