When the first ‘John Wick‘ film was announced back in 2013/2014, I don’t think anyone thought we’d be talking about a chapter three five years later in 2019, but here we are.
The action film franchise led by the lovable Keanu Reeves was a surprise hit back in 2014. It made close to $90 million and received outstanding reviews from critics. That was enough to get a sequel. John Wick: Chapter 2 was released in 2017 and made over $170 million at the box office.
It nearly doubled its total from the first movie, so of course they had to make a chapter three. ‘John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum‘ is set to hit theaters May 17, 2019, and the fine folks at Lionsgate gave us a little taste of the action today with the trailer you see below.
This trailer features lots of action, which is probably the most obvious statement of the year.
Check out the official synopsis and trailer below…
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.
