Lionsgate has released ten new character posters for John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum. As you may recall, at the end of John Wick: Chapter 2, Wick (Keanu Reeves) was declared “excommunicado” from the Continental and that a global contract had been offered on his head for killing Santino while Santino was under the sanctuary of the Continental hotel. The “Tick Tock” likely refers to the fact that time is running out for John Wick since there’s an entire world of assassins that wants him dead.
As for these posters, while they’re not quite as stunning as the first teaser poster, they get the job done. Plus, you get posters for folks like Jason Mantzoukas and Lance Reddick! That’s great! You will never see me argue against a Jason Mantzoukas poster.
Check out the posters below via IGN. The film opens May 17th and also stars Ian McShane, Lawrence Fishburne, Anelica Huston, Halle Berry, Jason Mantzoukas, Hiroyuki Sanada, Tiger Hu Chen, Yayan Ruhian, Cecep Arif Rahman, Lance Reddick, Common, and Ruby Rose.
Here’s the official synopsis for John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum:
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.
