It is a universal fact of life that John Wick is a force of nature that can’t be stopped; and yet some goons insist on trying to kill him. I guess they just hate their foreheads too much. Fortunately, this lack of basic common sense is giving us John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum, and this beast can’t come soon enough.
John Wick: Chapter 2 stood out thanks to its gorgeous production design and cinematography, which make a welcome return in this trailer. Chad Stahelski certainly knows how to make light and color pop out in a way instantly draws us inside this crazy world where any pedestrian could be a super assassin. There’s a mesmerizing sense of depth in every shot that succeeds at conveying the gravity of Wick’s situation. Even small details like the sound of the guns or the punches make an impression.
It’s basically John Wick vs the world now. Our titular man (and his loyal dog) may not be necessarily very excited about it, but those of us looking for action nirvana certainly are. Sometimes, all you need is Keanu Reeves being a badass for the universe to be a better place.
John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum is out in theaters on May 17, 2019.
