Shocker: John Wick 4 greenlit for 2021.

Spoiler alert: this is not actually shocking. Well, OK: I was expecting them to kill off John Wick in this movie, so I am surprised in that regard. But aside from that: “Following the record setting box office for the franchise this weekend with John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum, Lionsgate has announced that Keanu Reeves will return once again as the eponymous assassin with John Wick: Chapter 4 set to arrive on May 21, 2021.”

No, not shocking at all. This movie promises to make Lionsgate a good hunk of change, and I hear that it’s good! Won’t know until tomorrow; I was going to go see it Friday, but that day turned out to be a half-day for school. But I can go catch a matinee in the morning.

Yes, I should be very thankful for my ability to do that.

The final ‘John Wick 3: Parabellum’ trailer.

I hear that maybe they didn’t finish this off after all. Surprising, because by all accounts, where do they hope to go after John Wick 3: Parabellum?

John Wick: Chapter 3 has started filming.

Please, God, don’t let it suck.

John Wick (Keanu Reeves) is on the run for two reasons… he’s being hunted for a global $14 million dollar 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. John should have already been executed, except the Continental’s manager, Winston, has given him a one-hour grace period before he’s ‘Excommunicado’ – 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.

John Wick’s “DragonCon Part 2: Antitheism and Forbeck’s Law.”

Did you wince at the ‘antitheism?’ Come, I will conceal nothing from you: so did I.  But it’s all right; John Wick was merely discussing how to handle a problem RPG player who likes to go around, in-game, trash-talking another player’s deity.  The solution to that kind of jackwagonry is quite elegant: go ahead and read it.  As for Forbeck’s Law:

 

“Whenever the panelists outnumber the audience, 
the panel moves to the bar.”

 

This is… brilliant. More of a rule of thumb than a law, but still brilliant. I must remember it for future conventions.

Shocker: they’re making John Wick 3.

May 17, 2019.  Spoiler warning: it’s not actually a shocker. John Wick 2 performed better than John Wick, and the critics were all pleasantly surprised to see how much It Did Not Suck.

And then there’s this: “We want, not so much to go bigger on the third one, but to show you more of the intricacies of the world… I think it would be a mistake budget wise and creatively to just go big and blow up a freeway. That’s not our gig.” If John Wick 3 actually goes for a self-contained trilogy that actually resolves Wick’s character arc in an internally self-consistent (and likely permanent) way then we’ll have gotten something rather nice out of the deal.  I don’t want to make it sound like I hate popcorn movies; I love ’em. But it’s always nice to get a story.

Besides, this way we might get a cool video game out of it. You know my arguments on this topic already, I’m sure.

Potential John Wick universe spinoff movie announced: Ballerina (female lead).

I’ll allow it.

Lionsgate has won a bidding war to pick up a female-centric spec action script titled Ballerina that will serve as a platform for a possible John Wick spinoff.

Basil Iwanyk, whose Thunder Road banner is behind the hit Wick action franchise starring Keanu Reeves, will produce Ballerina.

‘Nerf John Wick.’

Too many camera cuts, but… you have to expect that, honestly. We can’t all be Keanu Reeves.

‘Honest Trailers: John Wick.’

I like this one, because it raises an important point: Keanu Reeves starts series well, but he doesn’t have the best record when it comes to the sequel. Also: John Wick really didn’t cheat on the action sequences, did it? I totally missed it until after they compared it to Taken.
