The First 'John Wick 3' Plot Details Have Landed
We feel like we're still processing but, whether we're ready for it or not, the official synopsis for Keanu Reeves' third outing as the iconic assassin is here.
Exciting the crowds at CinemaCon in Las Vegas, Lionsgate released an official poster and synopsis for John Wick: Chapter 3—and it sounds just as awesome as you'd expect.
Ruing the day he ever went out and sought vengeance for the death of his dog, Chapter 3 will see John Wick on the run out of New York City after killing a member of the High Table.
The synopsis reads (via Screen Rant): "John Wick (Keanu Reeves) is on the run for two reasons... he's being hunted for a global $14 million 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."
Fortunately for fans of the cult franchise, Chapter 3 is moving quickly, with once more back in January.
