Keanu Reeves is amongst the most popular actors globally. Just like his films, the actor is well known for his humble off-screen persona. And such qualities are enough to make him a fan favourite.
Keanu Reeves made his big-screen debut with 1986’s Youngblood but he got his first lead role in 1988 with Permanent Record. The film was a big flop commercially. But over the years, he has been part of several successful films like Speed, The Matrix franchise and many more. But today, we’ll be talking about his highly popular John Wick’s commercial success.
After 2008’s The Day the Earth Stood Still, Keanu Reeves was struggling to bag a decent commercial success. Finally, in the form of 2014’s John Wick, the 55-year-old packed a punch and got his touch back at the box office. Following the success of the first instalment, the franchise just got bigger with each part.
Have a look at John Wick’s performance at the worldwide box office:
