More John Wick 3: Parabellum plot details have been released along with two images from the highly anticipated sequel. The third and final movie in the trilogy picks up right where the last one left off, according to star Keanu Reeves. From what we've seen, the action has been ramped up in a major way now that Wick has a $14 million contract on his life after he went against the High Table and broke Continental rules.
The first of the John Wick 3 images features Keanu Reeves in the rain, possibly getting ready to make a getaway on horseback. The second image shows off Reeves and co-star Halle Berry, who plays the mysterious Sophia in the sequel. Additionally, the two characters are shown with two Belgian Malinois dogs, which makes the duo look even more intimidating, which is really saying something. We haven't seen much from the upcoming movie, so these pictures are a nice treat and we're hoping that it means that a trailer is right around the corner.
As for the plot details, Keanu Reeves has revealed that Halle Berry's Sophia character is a friend that Wick reaches out to for help. In John Wick 3, the characters meet up in the Middle East. Chad Stahelski also shed some lights on the two intimidating dogs that Sophia has with her. Apparently, the two canines are going to have a pretty big action scene to themselves in the movie. Stahelski had this to say.
"Whereas John's puppy was symbolic of his wife, Halle's two dogs are symbolic of someone she's lost. Her canine assistants... They work very well tactically."
In addition to Halle Berry's Sophia character, John Wick 3 will introduce Anjelica Huston as "someone who was responsible for (Wick's) upbringing and his protection," says director Chad Stahelski. The director went on to say that the sequel is "a little bit of an origin story," and that there is going to be a lot of blood when all is said and done, hinting that we might see the biggest death toll in the franchise when John Wick 3 hits theaters. It sounds like the movie is going to be the perfect way to end the franchise.
John Wick 3 hits theaters on May 17th, 2019. While we have some pretty intriguing information about the third and final movie in the trilogy, there's still a lot about it that we don't know at this time. But, we do know that Keanu Reeves' Wick character is going to be on the run and that he needs all the help that he can get. Additionally, it will be interesting to get some more backstory on Wick since the first two movies haven't really delved too deep into his past. While we wait for the first trailer to arrive, you can check out the new images from John Wick 3 below, thanks to Entertainment Weekly.
