It’s a world full of assassins, and John Wick (Keanu Reeves) just happens to live in it. Lionsgate has just released the first trailer for John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum.
In it, Wick is in a desperate attempt to outrun every single assassin who is looking to cash in on the $14 million dollar bounty on his head after killing on Continental grounds – which is the number one rule that you do not break. Check out the trailer for John Wick: Chapter 3 along with a pair of posters below.
Who would have thought that a film about a hitman getting revenge for the death of his dog would bring us such an entertaining franchise. From the action to the aesthetics of this world – I mean, have you seen the Continental Hotel and what these assassins wear – the world of John Wick is one that continues to expand with each new installment and I for one love the chance to explore each and every corner of it.
But John Wick: Chapter 2 was somewhat of a step down from the first. Still, it was nice to see that even though it couldn’t sustain that momentum, it still had high-quality action. So it looks like Chapter 3 will be somewhat of a redemption as it looks like things are about to get even crazier. And that’s a good thing. Especially for a franchise that thrives on stylish action and very cool fashion.
I mean, in the trailer we see katana-wielding assassins on motorcycles, John Wick riding a horse through NYC while killing other assassins, and ballerinas. Oh and there are dogs as well — because what kind of John Wick film would this be without dogs. All of that set to Frank Sinatra’s “The Impossible Dream.”
Here’s the official plot synopsis:
In this third installment of the adrenaline-fueled action franchise, super-assassin John Wick (Keanu Reeves) returns with a $14 million price tag on his head and an army of bounty-hunting killers on his trail. After killing a member of the shadowy international assassin’s guild, the High Table, John Wick is excommunicado, but the world’s most ruthless hit men and women await his every turn.
The film also stars Halle Berry, Laurence Fishburne, Mark Dacascos, Asia Kate Dillon, Lance Reddick, SaÃ¯d Taghmaoui, Jerome Flynn, Jason Mantzoukas, Tobias Segal, Boban Marjanovic, with Anjelica Huston, and Ian McShane.
Directed by Chad Stahelski, John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum opens in theaters on May 17, 2019.
