We’ve got a cool new featurette for you to check out today for John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum. It’s called “Art of Action” and it focuses on an action sequence in the film that involves Keanu Reeves fighting a bunch of assassins on motorcycles. Yes, it looks as badass as it sounds.
The featurette not only shows off some new footage from the film, but it also features Reeves and director Chad Stahelski talking about the film and how it was inspired by the 2017 Korean action film Villainess. They also show some behind-the-scenes footage showing the preparation that goes into shooting a crazy scene like this.
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.
Chad Stahelski directed the film, and Reeves will be joined by Halle Berry as Sofia, who will be helping John; Asia Kate Dillon, who will be playing The Adjudicator of the High Table; Mark Dacascos, who will take on the role of an assassin named Zero; Jason Mantzoukas, who will be playing the Tick Tock Man; and Angelica Houston, who is playing a mysterious new character named Roma Ruska, someone who was responsible for [Wick’s] upbringing and his protection.
John Wick: Chapter 3 is currently set to hit theaters on May 17, 2019.
