JOHN WICK: CHAPTER 3 - PARABELLUM (15) ..... ACTION sequel. Hitman John Wick (Keanu Reeves) has been excommunicated from the Continental Hotel in New York - a membership-only haven for the criminal underworld - by owner Winston (Ian McShane) after he broke the rules and terminated a crime lord on the premises. The High Table, the guild of assassins which imposes a strict moral code on the spilling of blood, authorises a $14m contract on John's life. Carnage begins at 6pm and John calls in a long-standing marker with a crime syndicate boss (Anjelica Huston) to secure safe passage to Morocco, where he hopes to reunite with fellow assassin Sofia (Halle Berry). | Download/stream from September 7 and available from September 16 on DVD/Blu-ray.
