The first trailer has been released for Keanu Reeves’ third outing as John Wick, and it looks like the deadly hitman faces his biggest challenge to date.
Our first glimpse of John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum opens with a shot of the titular hero running through New York with his trusty dog before an ominous voiceover hints at the battle that he’s about to face.
“There’s no escape for you. The High Table wants your life,” the voice states mysteriously.
From herein, it’s revealed that the killer has a $14 million bounty on his head after being forced to leave the safe haven of New York’s Continental Hotel at the end of the second film when he killed a fellow assassin.
After this big reveal, we see a brief glimpse of Ian McShane returning as Continental Hotel owner Winston, before a series of epic action sequences show the other killers who are no doubt out to stake their claim on Wick’s life.
As the trailer draws to a close, we get our first look at Halle Berry as Sofia, an assassin who is seemingly reluctant to return to action alongside Wick again.
Speaking in 2017, director Chad Stahelski said the third film would “wrap up” the story of Reeves’ titular assassin.
“It’s going to be a good way to wrap up what has become something of a trilogy,” he told the Daily Express.
“Without giving too much away, there’s a reason we named it chapters instead of part one, two and three.”
John Wick: Chapter 3 hits cinemas on May 17 2019.
