After a few days of teases — and a new poster reveal — the latest installment in the John Wick saga, John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum, gets a first full trailer. Chapter 3 will pick up right where Chapter 2 left off, with John Wick on the run.
Previously, Lionsgate teased a motion poster, showcasing Keanu Reeves’ character in front of a rain-splattered Continental glass door — outside looking in, as he has been banished from the hotel frequented by New York’s underworld. The clip also prompted viewers to send a text to a number, which then texted back a teaser for the trailer, as well as reminders about a “one hour head start.” Pretty cryptic!
Still on the run after the assassination of Santino and denied from all Continental services, John Wick fights to escape New York City. Much like the texting promo hints at, he’s been given a one hour head start to get out of the city.
New to the cast is Halle Berry as Sophia, a character that Wick meets while in the Middle East, whose past is connected with his own. Anjelica Huston also joins the franchise, as a character linked to John Wick’s upbringing, which means Chapter 3 will give us a glimpse into John Wick’s origins.
John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum will hit theaters on May 17, 2019.
