Bad guys beware: John Wick is back and he’s out for blood. Again.
On Thursday, Lionsgate dropped the much-anticipated trailer for “John Wick: Chapter 3 — Parabellum,” starring Keanu Reeves as a world-class hitman who must once again come out of retirement to put a lot of bullets in a lot of skulls.
In this installment, Reeves finds himself on the wrong side of the shadowy international assassin’s guild after getting excommunicated for killing one of its members. Suddenly, there’s a $14 million price tag on his head and every gangster and their uncle is out to get him. Thankfully, he’s John Wick and they aren’t.
“I'd say the odds are about even,” Ian McShane declares (above).
The trailer shows Keanu climbing sand dunes, riding horses bareback, fending off sword-wielding motorcyclists, and of course kicking, stabbing, and shooting anyone looking at him funny. At one point, he even kills a man with a hardcover book. The clip also sees him team up with a woman named Sofia, played by franchise newcomer Halle Barry, who apparently commands a pack of vicious German Shepherds.
“John Wick: Chapter 3 — Parabellum,” co-starring Anjelica Huton, Laurence Fishburne, Mark Dacascos, Asia Kate Dillon, and Wrap Up Show regular Jason Mantzoukas, opens May 17.
