The inevitable conclusion to what could potentially be Keanu Reeves’ greatest trilogy (@ me), John Wick: Chapter Three, has an official release date.
The continuing adventures of the most reluctant badass in modern movies will hit theaters May 17, 2019. Keanu Reeves is back, and I would imagine Ian McShane will stop by in some capacity. There are no other details at this point, of course, but this release date is the most audacious of the three.
The original John Wick quietly opened in October 2014, and Chapter Two was a massive hit this past February. To be fair, however, February is in the middle of a business model reboot, where studios see the benefits of opening big movies when it’s cold outside and people don’t have as much going on.
It will be interesting to see how Wick navigates a world where he has no protection and about half of this bizarro world’s population is a trained assassin. I picture Wick chopping wood in a remote cabin in the woods, fighting off killers as they try a sneak attack…
Anyway, John Wick: Chapter Three. 2019. I’ll probably go check it out, will you?
