The film outperformed its predecessors internationally, with a 19% higher opening than the previous installment.

Key European markets, including the UK/Ireland, France, Germany, and Spain, saw strong performances.

The film's plot involves Denzel Washington's character protecting friends in southern Italy from the local mafia.
