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 assassinâ€™s guild, the High Table, John Wick is excommunicado, but the worldâ€™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.
