There are repercussions when rules are broken. John Wick (Keanu Reeves) is on the run and the stakes are high ... life or death. A global open contract of US$14 million is on his head and he’s being hunted like an animal.

John has broken a cardinal rule, having spilled the blood of a member of the High Table on the revered Continental. He should have already been executed, but Winston, the Continental’s manager, has granted him a one-hour grace period before he’s ‘excommunicado’ – membership revoked, banned from all services and cut off from other members of the assassin’s guild. John must now fight and kill his way out of his predicament.

This third instalment of the action-packed John Wick franchise features a stellar cast along with Keanu Reeves, including Academy Award winners Halle Berry and Anjelica Huston; Laurence Fishburne, Mark Dacascos, Asia Kate Dillon, Lance Reddick, Saïd Taghmaoui, Jerome Flynn, Jason Mantzoukas, Tobias Segal, Boban Marjanovic and Ian McShane. The movie is directed by Chad Stahelski and produced by Basil Iwanyk and Erica Lee.
