Who Uses a Book Better – John Wick or Jason Bourne?

John Wick Chapter 3 trailer

Yesterday gave us one of the coolest movie posters in a long time and today we finally get our first look at John Wick: Chapter 3 Parabellum. Let’s go with John Wick 3. Keanu Reeves is back as John Wick, and the entire city is against him thanks to being declared excommunicado due to killing a member of the High Table and on Continental grounds.

Sure the guy deserved it, but rules are rules. Winston gives him an hour and jokes the odds are even with everyone wanting a piece of the $14 million contract on his head. He’s going to kill them all Winston.

Hell yes. Love the look of John Wick 3, and we are getting more details in the world of the assassins. You’ll notice a part in the trailer where John drops the gun for a trusty book:

Now, where have we seen this before?

That’s still my favorite scene from the Bourne movies. Matt Damon beating the hell out of someone with a book.

While the John Wick 3 trailer barely gives us a glimpse, we know he’s partial to handguns and high-capacity magazines. I’m giving the edge to Jason Bourne as someone you don’t want to fight in a library.

What’s impressive is how stylized John Wick is while retaining a seamless action sequence. Bourne gave us shaky cam, while Keanu trains like a madman for his films. John Wick: Chapter 3 Parabellum hits theaters on May 17. Day one for me.
