JOHN WICK: CHAPTER 3
A new poster and synopsis for John Wick: Chapter 3 have been released. You can check them out below.
“John Wick (Keanu Reeves) is on the run for two reasons… he’s being hunted for a global $14 million dollar open contract on his life, and for breaking a central rule: taking a life on Continental Hotel grounds. The victim was a member of the High Table who ordered the open contract. John should have already been executed, except the Continental’s manager, Winston, has given him a one-hour grace period before he’s “Excommunicado” – membership revoked, banned from all services and cut off from other members. John uses the service industry to stay alive as he fights and kills his way out of New York City.”
Much of the action will supposedly be focused on New York.
MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE: FALLOUT
At CinemaCon, Paramount Pictures chose to put most of its promotional resources behind Mission: Impossible: Fallout.
They detailed a stunt sequence which took a year to figure out. The scene sees Tom Cruise’s Ethan Hunt and CIA agent August Walker (Henry Cavill) skydive from a high 35,000 feet altitude at sunset, jumping into a lightning storm above Paris.
Mid-jump, they are struck by lightning and Hunt must catch Walker, who is now unconscious, and resuscitate him mid-air. Cruise reportedly did 106 jumps out of a plane in order to get three usable takes which will be merged together to look like one. The lightning will be added digitally, but otherwise the whole sequence was done for real.
As the sequence takes place at sunset, they only had a three-minute window each day to shoot the scene.
