Not only because itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s packed with action, but because it has the gall to reference Keanu ReevesÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ previous masterpiece The Matrix.
Yep, when Wick asks for Ã¢â‚¬Ëœguns, lots of gunsÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a totally on-the-nose nod to one of the best action films of all time, which very much makes us hope that John Wick 3 could be up there with the other franchise that stars Keanu Reeves and Laurence Fishburne.
But The Matrix isnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t the only movie the trailer references. The bike chase sequence looks to be very similar to 2017Ã¢â‚¬â„¢s South Korean film The Villainess, which means John Wick 3 will be as influenced by Eastern cinema as The Matrix was.
All reasons to be excited for what could be the final instalment in the fan favourite franchise. Though is it just us thatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s hoping weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll get a John Wick: Chapter 4, 5, 6, 7 and beyond?
HereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s the synopsis:
John Wick is on the run for two reasonsÃ¢â‚¬Â¦ heÃ¢â‚¬â„¢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,Ã¢â‚¬Â it reads.
John should have already been executed, except the ContinentalÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s manager, Winston, has given him a one-hour grace period before heÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Ã¢â‚¬ËœExcommunicadoÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ Ã¢â‚¬â€œ 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.
