John Wick (Keanu Reeves) thought he left the hitman life behind him. But when his beloved dog given by his dying wife is killed, he gets his revenge on those who were involved with taking away his pooch. However, he had to repay a debt, and was roped back into the life. But after killing the person he owes on Continental Hotel grounds, a code that cannot be broken, he finds himself marked and on the run.
So John Wick Chapter 3 (or John Wick 3: Parabellum) will serve as the conclusion to everyone’s favorite hitman. But other than a plot synopsis, we don’t know what the film will look like. Although, we can expect to see sharp suits and dogs. Now a pair of images will give us an idea of what to expect from the upcoming sequel and who will be helping the titular character along the way. Check it out below.

“Somebody please get this man a gun!”
With 2014’s John Wick, co-directors Chad Stahelski and David Leitch delivered a stylish neo-noir action thriller with hyper-kinetic fight choreography and sophisticated “gun fu” a-la John Woo’s The Killer. In the follow-up, John Wick: Chapter 2, Stahelski and returning screenwriter Derek Kolstad attempt to delve deeper into Wick’s internal struggle and expand the franchise’s mythology.
After unleashing hell on the Russian mobsters who killed his dog, retired hitman John Wick (Keanu Reeves)’s plans to resume a quiet civilian life are cut short when Italian gangster Santino D’Antonio (Riccardo Scamarcio) shows up on his doorstep with a gold “marker” compelling him to repay past favors.
Lionsgate has released online the 30-second TV spot for their upcoming film John Wick: Chapter 2 that aired during today’s Super Bowl pre-game show. The sequel to the 2014 action film sees the return of star Keanu Reeves as the title hitman.
Of course, he’s back. Having a one and done film for John Wick (Keanu Reeves) didn’t seem appropriate for the man, the myth, and the legend. So the successful film about the former assassin who came out of retirement after the son of a crime boss killed his beloved dog (which was also a gift from his dying wife) is getting a well-deserved sequel, and it looks like it will live up to expectations.
Lionsgate has released the second trailer for John Wick: Chapter 2, and the action can only go up from here. Especially since there is a mark on him.
For a guy who says he is out of the game, John Wick (Keanu Reeves) certainly has a hard time grasping the concept of retirement. Which is a good thing for us, especially if you were a fan of the first film. Lionsgate and Summit Entertainment have released the first trailer today for John Wick: Chapter 2 at the New York Comic-Con. The first film, 2014’s John Wick, was very ambitious but caught everyone’s attention because of the visually appealing stylized action, and now it looks like returning director Chad Stahelski is turning it up in the sequel that will see the title character doing so much more than kick ass in a tailored suit.
