Lionsgate has officially released the first look at John Wick: Chapter 3 featuring Keanu Reeves returning to the role as the titular fearsome assassin along with newcomer Halle Berry.
Berry joins the hit-franchise as Sofia, who Reeves revealed to Entertainment Weekly has a past with John Wick. The two meet back when the plot takes John to the Middle East. Reeves explained:
“She has a past with John. I end up going to find her to see if she can help me.”
In addition to the image previewed above, featuring John in New York City, the image below featuring Reeves and Berry reveals two new canines joining the franchise. The film will introduce two Belgian Malinois dogs that belong to Berry’s Sofia, only this time they’ll be featured in the action. Director Chad Stahelski revealed “they work very well tactically.” The director also revealed that much like John’s dog in the first film, the two dogs belonging to Sofia will also represent a previous loss for the character:
“Whereas John’s puppy was symbolic of his wife, Halle’s two dogs are symbolic of someone she’s lost.”
John Wick: Chapter 3 will pick up where the sequel left off and follow John attempts to escape from New York now that he is officially excommunicado from The Continental with a contract on his head.
Directed by Chad Stahelski, John Wick: Chapter 3 stars Keanu Reeves, Halle Berry, Ian McShane, Ruby Rose, Common, Lance Reddick, Laurence Fishburne, Hiroyuki Sanada, Jason Mantzoukas, Anjelica Huston, and Boban Marjanovic. Here’s the official synopsis:
“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: Chapter 3 is currently slated to hit theaters on May 17, 2019. Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for the latest news on the future of the John Wick franchise as we learn it.
New ‘Godzilla: King Of The Monsters’ Posters Showcase Rodan, Mothra & Ghidorah
Earlier this week, Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros. Pictures dropped the newest trailer for their highly-anticipated sequel, Godzilla: King of the Monsters. The new trailer showed off some more epic action following the beloved monster along with some incredible sequences involving Rodan, Mothra and Ghidorah.
Now, Legendary has shared three brand new posters for Rodan, Mothra and Ghidorah. Given that Godzilla will be battling with these monsters in the new film, it makes sense to see them receive their own poster that boasts their size and scale as they unleash their terror against humankind.
Given that Rodan, Mothra and Ghidorah all take flight unlike Godzilla, it is going to be stunning visual spectacle to see them take the skies and swoop down as they all battle to the bitter end for what looks to be one of the most-anticipated blockbusters of 2019.
You can check out the new posters of Rodan, Mohra and Ghidorah down below by clicking "Next".

Directed by Michael Dougherty, Godzilla: King of the Monsters stars Kyle Chandler, Vera Farmiga, Millie Bobby Brown, Bradley Whitford, Sally Hawkins, Charles Dance, Thomas Middleditch, O’Shea Jackson Jr., with Ken Watanabe and Ziyi Zhang.
Following the global success of “Godzilla” and “Kong: Skull Island” comes the next chapter in Warner Bros. Pictures’ and Legendary Pictures’ cinematic MonsterVerse, an epic action adventure that pits Godzilla against some of the most popular monsters in pop culture history. The new story follows the heroic efforts of the crypto-zoological agency Monarch as its members face off against a battery of god-sized monsters, including the mighty Godzilla, who collides with Mothra, Rodan, and his ultimate nemesis, the three-headed King Ghidorah. When these ancient super-species—thought to be mere myths—rise again, they all vie for supremacy, leaving humanity’s very existence hanging in the balance.
Godzilla: King of the Monsters will be released in theaters on May 31, 2019.
