Keanu is back, this time on a horse in the streets of New York in the latest trailer for “John Wick 3: Parabellum,” the third and final installment in the hugely successful John Wick film series which started in 2014.
The trailer is a stirring combo of non-stop action set to Andy Williams’ version of the classic song “The Impossible Dream (The Quest).” The film picks up where the Chapter 2’s cliffhanger ending left off: legendary hitman Wick is still on the run, expelled from from every Continental service after the assassination of another hitman and now with $14 million bounty on his head, everyone’s after him.
Chad Stahelski is back in the director’s chair alongside series screenwriter Derek Kolstad. Also back are
Also back are Ian McShane as Winston, the owner of the Continental Hotel and Laurence Fishburne as underground crime lord The Bowery King. Joining the cast this time around are Anjelica Huston as The Director and protector of John Wick as well as Halle Berry playing another assassin and John Wick’s pal Sofia.
Now slated for a summer release, the series has truly evolved into a summer tentpole from its humble beginnings. In 2014, the first Wick film was a surprise boxoffice hit, grossing $88 million worldwide on a $29 million budget, while the first sequel released nearly two years ago grossed $171.5 million. Critical response to both films were also positive.
John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum is set to arrive in theaters May 17.
