John Wick: Chapter Three release date set for 2019
Lionsgate announced today that the John Wick: Chapter Three release date has been set for May 17, 2019. Lionsgate’s Summit Entertainment will distribute the film, again starring Keanu Reeves in the title role. Surprisingly, no other movie has been set for that date yet.
What is no surprise, however, is that a third John Wick film is coming. The first film grossed $88 million worldwide ($43 million domestically and $45.7 million internationally) in 2014, and that was topped by the second film earlier this year with $171.5 million worldwide ($92 million domestically and $79.5 million internationally).
John Wick: Chapter 3 Plot Details Revealed!
Keanu Reeves’ latest action icon is set to return very soon with the in-development John Wick: Chapter 3 coming in 2019. Ahead of the Lionsgate panel at CinemaCon later today, Collider has the first details on the plot for the upcoming film, which reads as follows:
“John Wick (Keanu Reeves) is on the run for two reasons… he’s being hunted for a global $14 million dollar open contract on his life, and for breaking a central rule: taking a 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 ‘Excommunicado’ – 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.”
