John Wick: Chapter 3 Parabellum Trailer Is Officially Here

We've waited, then waited some more... and a little more. After a teaser dropped a couple of days ago, everyone's favourite super assassin is back with an official trailer.

John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum will hit of screens on 17 May and it looks intense to say the least. With a $14 million bounty on his head and every assassin in the city after him - we didn't expect anything less than intense.

Just days ago, an announcement was made on Twitter accompanied by a teaser shot of John Wick (Keanu Reeves) staring through a rain-soaked window of the Continental Hotel in New York City with cuts across his face.

The picture has been taken to show Wick on the outside of the hotel, and if you look closely the word 'Excommunicado' is written backwards on the glass.

This is a reference to the fact that Wick has been banished from the hotel, which had acted as a sort of safe space for members of NYC's varied criminal underclasses.

John got himself ejected from the hotel when he broke a central rule and killed the Italian mobster kingpin Santino D'Antonio within the confines of the hotel.

Because this is a John Wick film - that is to say, very violent - the name of the movie is a reference to a Luger, which is a type of semi-automatic pistol.

You'd have to imagine that John Wick knows his way around one of those.

It is also Latin for 'prepare for war', so that's something.

Chad Stahelski, the series' director, told Entertainment Weekly that this next film 'goes slightly north' of the previous one with regards to body count.

Also starring alongside Reeves in this latest film will be Halle Berry, she will portray a character called Sofia. Reeves told EW: "She [Sofia] has a past with John. I end up going to find her to see if she can help me.

Much like Wick - who embarked on a murderous vendetta after his dogs were killed - Berry's character also has a great love for our canine chums.

Reeves continued: "Whereas John's puppy was symbolic of his wife, Halle's two dogs are symbolic of someone she's lost."

We cannot wait for this.
