Here are 25 details about John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum you may not have noticed. Lionsgate and Keanu Reeves found a surprise hit in 2014 when John Wick hit theaters. The simple story allowed the film to put more of a focus on the action, and when John Wick: Chapter 2 hit theaters, the assassin underworld started to grow. Even with a denser story and world, the sequel still delivered on all of the action fans of the franchise were expecting.
Now that John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum is out in theaters, audiences can now experience even more of this world. The film offers more information on John's backstory and also introduces a handful of new characters to the universe. These details can come as fast and furious as the kills, though, which can make them difficult to keep track of as John finds new, inventive ways to kill anyone who is standing in his way.
In Screen Rant's latest video, we discuss 25 details from John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum that you may have missed. These moments include callbacks and references to Reeves' prior action franchise, The Matrix, some blink and you'll miss them surprise cameos, and death counts. Check out the video featured at the top of this post for a full list of surprising details.
There are a few cast members from the Matrix trilogy that make appearances in the film, beyond Reeves and Laurence Fishburne, which fans may not have noticed. The love for the prior franchise runs deep with director Chad Stahelski serving as Reeves' stuntman in the series and used John Wick 3 to bring back the "guns, lots of guns" quote. With so many guns used by John and other characters in the film, the third John Wick movie features an increased death count of 124 people killed by them. There are also 32 deaths coming from swords or knives, and a horse is even responsible for a few. One of John's most inventive kills sees him use a book to defeat a 7-foot assassin, who is played by Philadelphia 76ers center Boban Marjanovic.
With all of these fun details, it is no wonder that audiences are supporting John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum as much as they are. The film had the highest opening in franchise history and is also the highest grossing entry of the trilogy. Lionsgate is clearly happy with the film's performance too, as they've already confirmed that John Wick: Chapter 4 is coming in two years. Hopefully, there are just as many great details in the fourth film as there were here.
