Since “John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum” was a huge success, grossing $56 million on opening weekend in 2019, fans of the franchise have been eagerly awaiting a new instalment. The film’s popularity proved that there is still a lot of interest in the John Wick character, played by Keanu Reeves, and demonstrated that Derek Kolstad’s universe is very popular.
The 3 films have collected a global total of $573 million dollars – an impressive accomplishment for an action franchise that had no pre-existing source material, especially compared to major comic book blockbusters.
More “John Wick” sequels are on the way following the success of the first three films.
John Wick Chapter 4 Release Date
The fourth movie is scheduled to come out on March 24, 2023, with plans for the fifth film in development.
“Chapter 4” is the first part of the Wick finale. The series has also given rise to an upcoming film spin-off, “Ballerina” as well as a prequel series called “The Continental”. The latter show will follow Winston (Colin Woodell), the hotel manager, and other cast members including Mel Gibson, Peter Greene, and Ayomide Adegun set in a hotel for mercenaries which is set to air on March 2023.
John Wick Chapter 4: Longest in the Franchise
In an interview with Collider, Director Chad mentioned that “Chapter 4” will be considerably longer than the first three films. However, he clarified that despite its length, it still won’t be too long. Even though numbers haven’t been confirmed yet, John Wick: Chapter 3 — Parabellum is speculated to be two minutes shorter than the fourth film. Therefore, if these speculations are true, the new film would have a run-time of around 131 minutes.
John Wick: Chapter 3 — Parabellum (where it left off)
If you remember, in “John Wick: Chapter 3,” The Tick Tock Man collected a hurt John Wick from where Winston had abandoned him to die. If you recall, Winston, played by Ian McShane, chose to keep The Continental running smoothly and stay in the good graces of the High Table rather than helping John Wick. In “John Wick: Chapter 4,” it seems that Bowery King and John Wicks will be joining forces to go up against the High Table.
Winston’s Intentions are a hot topic among fans of the “John Wick” series. Many people believe that he meant to help John, not kill him. With any luck, the release of the 4th movie will clarify this long-standing theory.
John Wick as Odysseus (What’s the Deal?)
In an interview with Variety, Chad Stahelski, the director of John Wick: Chapter 4, said that the upcoming sequel will be revealing a lot about the assassins as well as The Continental. Instead of following a three-act structure like other movies, Stahelski wants to focus on storytelling. He compares John Wick to Odysseus: “We take the time we need to tell the story.”
Therefore, the demand for additional movies surfaced. The fourth film is being advertised as the longest movie in the series, and its director has already cautioned followers.: “As long as we don’t fall asleep watching it, we keep it going. But I guess there is a bathroom limit.”
There Will Be a “John Wick: Chapter 5”
In August 2020, CEO Jon Feltheimer announced that not only would there be a fifth movie in the “John Wick” series, but it would also be filmed back-to-back with the fourth. Feltheimer stated, “We’re also busy preparing scripts for the next two instalments of our John Wick action franchise, with ‘John Wick 4’ slated to hit theatres Memorial Day weekend 2022”.
