With superhero movies dominating the box office these days, other genres have had to go the extra mile to turn heads as of late. When it comes to that of action, simply having cops and robbers shooting it out in scenes that are barely choreographed tends to not sell as many tickets as it could’ve in years prior, especially now that you have guys like Iron Man and Black Panther dialing it up to 11.
That said, John Wick: Chapter 3 is one movie firmly on my radar because its predecessors had so much going for them. I mean, how could you not love all the gun-katas and original songs such as Chapter 2‘s “Plastic Heart,” which I believe to be the best James Bond theme that wasn’t a James Bond theme, if that makes sense? Plus, the cinematography was off the charts, especially in scenes such as the climactic battle in the “Reflections of the Soul” exhibit.
And in case you had any doubts swirling in your mind, the threequel has been given much weight since the one and only Halle Berry boarded the cast. Not only that, but a certain four-legged friend is making his return – and we all know that little fella can put butts in seats. Well, maybe.
So, with filming now underway, various goodies have begun leaking from the set, with the latest offering coming to us by way of Hollywood Pipeline. In this instance, John looks to be rather soaked going about his business.
Here’s how the image was captioned on Twitter:
“New ‘John Wick 3’ pix… dude is gonna spend the whole movie running in the rain. Spotted filming in Times Square.”
You may think that’s funny, but if indeed Reeves’ character is drenched for a number of scenes, know that he must continually douse himself for hours of filming in order to maintain continuity. Having said that, we imagine he finds comfort in a warm blanket and indulges in his hot beverage of choice at the end of each workday.
John Wick: Chapter 3 opens in theaters on May 17, 2019.
