The John Wick franchise is one that was a surprise hit when it arrived in theaters. Much of the charm wasn’t just about the “world of assassins” that the titular character was a part of, but also, the intense fight scenes that played out before the viewers eyes without a lot of jump cuts. And, Keanu Reeves did just about all his stunts and delivered two incredible performances. And with Chapter 2 ending in a major cliffhanger, all eyes are on John Wick 3 now.
The movie is set to arrive next year, and a little over a year before its release, we have a synopsis of what you can expect:
John Wick (Keanu Reeves) is on the run for two reasons… he’s being hunted for a global $14 million dollar open contract on his life, and for breaking a central rule: taking a life on Continental Hotel grounds. The victim was a member of the High Table who ordered the open contract. John should have already been executed, except the Continental’s manager, Winston, has given him a one-hour grace period before he’s “Excommunicado” – membership revoked, banned from all services and cut off from other members. John uses the service industry to stay alive as he fights and kills his way out of New York City.
John Wick 3 will arrive in theaters May 17th, 2019.
