Atomic Blonde's Box Office Compared to John Wick's
Atomic Blonde may not have topped the box office in its opening weekend, but the film’s debut did overtake one of the movies the Charlize Theron action film has been most compared to — John Wick.
Directed by David Leitch, one half of the directing duo behind John Wick, Atomic Blonde took in an estimated $18.6 million in its debut, while John Wick only pulled in about $14.4 million when it opened in 2014. (Even adjusted for inflation, John Wick wouldn’t crack the $15 million-mark for its opening weekend.) With only three days to compare, Atomic Blonde took in approximately $1.5 million more per day of its opening than John Wick did.
