‘John Wick: Chapter 3’
John Wick 4 is set to be released on May 21 2021, after the success of the most recent film in the series, which had an enormous US box office opening of $56.8 million (£44.6m), knocking Avengers: Endgame off the top spot.
John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum was described by NME‘s Alex Flood in a review as “a brutal, blood-soaked sequel.”
“Exhilarating and exhausting in equal measure, the third chapter in this bonkers franchise is undoubtedly its best. But how long can a 54-year-old actor continue to put his body through the wringer in such a physically-demanding role? Time to get cracking on chapter 4, we think. Tick-tock, Mr Wick.”
