John Wick 3 Gets Official Title--What Does Parabellum Mean?

John Wick 3 Title Confirmed

John Wick 3 Title Confirmed

We've just been calling it John Wick 3 for the last while, but now we finally know what we should actually be calling the new John Wick film.

CS: I talked to you for the first "John Wick" and I loved it because after they killed that dog you could have atomic bombed whole city blocks and I would have been with you.

As it turns out, the stylish franchise boasting jaw-dropping gun-katas that keeps us all coming back for more will continue with a rather unexpected subtitle for its next outing, that being John Wick 3: Parabellum.

He revealed: "Prepare for war".

Prepare for war. It's part of that famous sentence, "Si vis pacem, para bellum", which translates as, "If you want peace, prepare for war". To clarify, is it called "Chapter 3" or "Parabellum"? .

Beyond following John as he makes a mad dash toward shelter and security, John Wick 3: Parabellum will see the eponymous hit man brush shoulders with a bundle of new faces - most notably Halle Berry's Sofia, who has both key information for and a storied past with John. They have a past, and they get involved with The High Table, this kind of overlording entity.

Feminists protest at London Pride
The England and Wales Cricket Board has announced they are to participate in the Pride in London parade on Saturday. Thousands of supporters lined the streets, which were filled with balloons, sequins and flags.

The third John Wick movie will buck the trend and do away with the "Chapters" in its titles.

He said: "It's going to be a good way to wrap up what has become something of a trilogy".

John Wick was one of the slickest action films of 2015 and was a tour de force or carnage and chaos.

But how's it going to start? At the end of John Wick: Chapter 2, the assassin was banned from The Continental and for killing a member of the High Table on the grounds of the hotel.

What a fitting way to close off the series with one final firefight of a film.

John Wick 3: Parabellum is directed by Chad Stahelski, with a script from Derek Kolstad, and has a May 17, 2019 release date also starring Laurence Fishburne, Halle Berry, Ruby Rose, Ian McShane, John Leguizamo, Lance Reddick and Common, along with potential newcomer Hiroyuki Sanada.
