About John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum Movie:

John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum is based on a story by Derek Kolstad. The film is the sequel to John Wick: Chapter 2 (2017) and the third installment in the John Wick franchise.

In October 2016, Chad Stahelski, who made his directorial debut with John Wick and served as Reeves’ Matrix stunt double, stated that a third film in the John Wick series was in the works. In June 2017, it was reported that Derek Kolstad, who wrote the two prior films, would return to write the screenplay. In January 2018, it was reported that Stahelski would return to direct.

According to Reeves, the film’s title was taken from the famous 4th-century Roman military quote “Si vis pacem, para bellum”, which means, “If you want peace, prepare for war.” In an interview with the New York Times, McShane said that the film would be big and good and that nothing is the same while also hinting that part of the action could be the High Table’s payback not only on Wick but also on his close friend Winston.

Principal photography began May 5, 2018, in New York City, along with additional filming locations in Casablanca. Principal photography lasted until November 17, 2018.

The action scene with a hitman named Ernest, played by NBA basketball player Boban Marjanović, was inspired by the Bruce Lee film Game of Death (1972), where Lee fights NBA basketball player Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. Unlike most of the other stunt scenes, Ernest has a few lines bantering with John Wick, but he still loses.

The visual effects are provided by Method Studios, Image Engine, and Soho VFX.

John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum had its premiere at the Regal Union Square in New York City on May 9, 2019, and was released in the United States on May 17, by Lionsgate. It received generally positive reviews from critics, with praise for the action sequences, visual style, and Reeves’s performance.

The film grossed over $327 million worldwide and took just 10 days to become the highest-grossing film in the franchise. A sequel, John Wick: Chapter 4, was released in March 2023, with a spin-off film, John Wick Presents: Ballerina, set to be released on June 6, 2025.

The film was released on Digital HD on August 23, 2019, and on DVD, Blu-ray, and Ultra HD Blu-ray on September 10, 2019, by Lionsgate Home Entertainment.
