Tense First John Wick 3 Clip Features Tough Decisions

"Change of plan."


Keanu Reeves already had a few classic action movies under his belt when he took on the role of reluctant hitman John Wick in 2014, and the success of that first movie has led to another hit franchise for the star. John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum is the latest movie, and it releases next month. The first clip has now been released.

While the clip doesn't contain any of the insane action that the trailers have promised, it's tense and emotional. As fans know, the second movie ended with Wick expelled from the assassin underworld, and there are now dozens of killers on his trail. In the clip he gets into a taxi with his faithful canine pal, but it seems that going anywhere fast is going to be tricky, and a hard decision must be made. Check it out below.

This clip follows this recent behind-the-scenes video, that showed Reeves undergoing firearms training for the role. John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum is directed by Chad Stahelski, who helmed John Wick: Chapter 2 and co-directed the first movie. It also stars Ian McShane, Lawrence Fishburne, Halle Berry, Lance Reddick, Anjelica Huston, Jason Mantzoukas, and Mark Dacascos. It releases on May 17.

In a recent interview with Collider, Reeves spoke about what sets the John Wick series apart from other action movies. "I would say it's the blend of elements that it has," he said. "I think the way the action is and the world that's created. I think the cinema of the series is really strong--you know, the framing, the the camera movement. I think the set design is really great. So, I think the film is really easy to watch. It's beautiful.

"There's a character that we root for, hopefully. He's fighting for his life. They're not insulting. The films are fun, but they're smart. There's humor, and action. Comedy. It has a unique tone, I think. So, you can tell I'm a fan."
