John Wick 3 Teaser Trailer, Poster Confirm Title; Full Trailer Released

Wick in the rain.


Sure enough, not long after the release of the new poster, we've also gotten a very brief John Wick 3 teaser trailer. You can watch that above; it teases that a proper trailer will be coming this Thursday, January 17, so you don't have long to wait before getting a good sense of what to expect from the upcoming film. Read on for a look at that stylish new poster as well. [Update: The John Wick 3 trailer has arrived, and it looks great.] The original story follows below.

We've had plenty of images from the upcoming third John Wick movie over the past year, but no footage as yet. The movie comes out in May so a trailer won't be far off, but ahead of that a stylish new poster has been released. The movie's official Twitter feed also confirms that the title is John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum.

Now Playing: John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum - Official Trailer Tease

The poster shows star Keanu Reeves standing in front of what seems to be the glass door to the Continental, the franchise's chain of hitman-friendly hotels. The word "excommunicado" is on the door--fans will recall that Wick is on the run after killing a rival on the supposedly neutral ground of the Continental in John Wick: Chapter 2. Check it out below.

The release date for John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum is May 17, 2019. Ian McShane and Lawrence Fishburne will reprise their roles from previous movies, and the new cast includes Asia Kate Dillon (Orange is the New Black), Mark Dacascos (Cradle 2 the Grave), Jason Mantzoukas (Brooklyn Nine-Nine, The Good Place), and Angelica Huston (Isle of Dogs).

The film is directed by Chad Stahelski, who helmed Chapter 2 and co-directed the first movie. When the movie was first announced, Stahelski spoke about his plans for Parabellum. "We want, not so much to go bigger on the third one, but to show you more of the intricacies of the world," he said. "I feel like there are all these different subtleties that I skipped over in Part 2, that I'd like to go back to [with Part 3] and show you the inner workings of different parts of New York."

A John Wick TV spin-off named The Continental was also announced by Starz last year, but there has been no further news about the status of this project.
