John Wick’s next movie was inevitable, and it was in a good way as well. The first two movies in the franchise have been success stories. So, it was very obvious that John Wick would be making a return with another movie. The third movie is titled John Wick 3: Parabellum. In Latin, “Parabellum” means “prepare for war.”
Halle Berry is going to join Keanu Reeves as she will co-star in John Wick 3. Berry is going to play Sofia, who seems to be a dog enthusiast like John. Angelica Huston (Transparent), Asia Kate Dillon (Orange is the New Black), Jason Mantzoukas (Brooklyn Nine-Nine) and Mark Dacascos (Agents of SHIELD) are also part of the cast for the movie.
Sofia will be a dog enthusiast like John Wick and will have a similar attachment to her dog. As John’s dog is symbolic for his wife, Sofia’s dogs will also be symbolic for someone who she lost. A perfect duo, aren’t they?
Now moving on to the release date of the movie. John Wick 3: Parabellum will be released on May 17, 2019. The story for the third is pretty epic, and I can see the movie becoming another hit with the fans. The story of the movie is described as follows:
“John Wick (Keanu Reeves) is on the run for two reasons… he’s being hunted for a global $14 million open contract on his life, and for breaking a central rule: taking 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 “Incommunicado” – 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.”
The story seems compelling, and fans are deliberately waiting for the next season. Nonetheless, the director, Chad Stahelski, has said that he is a big fan of Joseph Campbell’s mythologies, and he said that he would call it the theatre of pain. He hinted that he likes to see heroes getting more stress, as heroism should come with pain. Hence, we might see John Wick in more tense situations in the next film!

Here is our trailer breakdown in-detail – We see John on the run in the desert, and it is definitely not New York City, and the summary was that he would kill his way out of New York, that means he already fled the city. The filming locations for John Wick 3 included New York, Russia, and Spain.
John will probably team up with Sophia because she loves dogs as much as John. According to the spoilers, John will reportedly kill more than ever in the third chapter; it has the highest death toll among all John Wick movies.
We will also see John ride a horse in the middle of a city road. John Wick Chapter 3 is filled with a lot of action. The movie is coming out this May 17th, 2019.
