What does it take to make us believe that John Wick might not survive? Almost every assassin in the world trying to claim the massive bounty on his head, like they are in the latest trailer for his next chapter. Fortunately for him he still has some powerful new friends, both old and new, to help him beat the impossible odds.The newest trailer for Jon Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum is here, and to paraphrase the immortal words of Barney Gumble, “Just hook it to our veins!” The latest installment in the franchise looks like it will be the most insane one yet. It’s basically a hot new nightclub Stefon would tell us about, because it has everything: a chase through city streets on horseback, katana-wielding ninjas on motorcycles, a $14 million bounty, a shadowy international assassin’s guild known as the High Table, throwing knives into your enemy’s chest, and Halle Berry.
“All of this for what? Because of a puppy?”
“It wasn’t just a puppy.”
Is it weird to feel like a movie franchise truly loves and understands us? Because that’s what that exchange makes us think.
As for John Wick himself, we wouldn’t count him out even if he didn’t have friends to help him, but since we never want to see grieving widow Keanu Reeves come to harm, we’re glad he has some allies left. However, we are sorry to tell him, Ian McShane, and Laurence Fishburne that none of them can claim to be the coolest person in the franchise now that Halle Berry is here.
While this movie does look to have everything, we hope one things is missing: any dogs being harmed. Yeah, this is all over a puppy. Imagine what John Wick would do if someone hurt another one.
John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum, which also stars Mark Dacascos, Asia Kate Dillon, Lance Reddick, Saïd Taghmaoui, Jerome Flynn, Jason Mantzoukas, Tobias Segal, Boban Marjanovic, and Anjelica Huston, comes to theaters this spring on May 17.
