Although it’s raining outside, it looks like all doors may be closed to Keanu Reeves' John Wick in the latest poster for the upcoming John Wick 3: Parabellum.
The film’s Twitter account posted both a still and motion poster for the upcoming film that shows a bloody Reeves looking in on the closed door for the Continental Hotel. The motion poster adds the distinct sound of rainfall and the air traffic of New York City as Reeves looks off-screen before turning to look forward, giving a tired and lonely impression of the formerly retired “Baba Yaga."
In the John Wick film series, the Continental Hotel serves as neutral ground for hitmen and assassins under the strict rule that business is not conducted within its walls. Those who break the rules have died for their transgressions and in John Wick 2, John does not die but suffers a fate perhaps worse than death. As punishment for killing crime lord Santino D’Antonio in the Continental lounge, the hotel owner Winston, played by Ian McShane, declares John exiled from the hotel and stripped of all its resources and connections.
With a $14 million contract on his head and his allies slowly dwindling in John Wick 3: Parabellum, John will be more dangerous than ever, especially to any hitman or adversary that thinks him to be easy prey as he tries to escape New York.
Directed by Chad Stahelski, John Wick 3: Parabellum stars returning actors Keanu Reeves, Ian McShane and Laurence Fishburne. They are joined by newcomers Halle Berry, Anjelica Huston, Hiroyuki Sanada, Jason Mantzoukas, Mark Dacascos, Asia Kate Dillon, Yayan Ruhian, Cecep Arif Rahman and Tiger Hu Chen. It is scheduled to open on May 17.
