Tonight the first “John Wick” is on ProSieben. “John Wick 2” will follow next Sunday on RTL. Soon “John Wick 3” will start at the cinema, but that doesn’t stop there either …
When stunt specialists David Leitch and Chad Stahelski made their directing debuts with revenge-action actor “John Wick,” they really did their best in terms of action. And probably also because they had to assume it would be a one-shot orgy with Keanu Reeves. His “Matrix” fame had long since faded with the movie premiere in 2014 (in Germany 2015), and with an actor without a known cast, no one should bet on a box office hit. “John Wick “did not become a box office success, but with its first-class choreographed fights it was successful enough for a sequel, in which one delves deeper into the fascinating world of the parallel blockbuster society.
“John Wick 2” soon on TV
“John Wick: Kapitel 2” started in German cinemas in early 2017 and will celebrate its free television premiere on Sunday May 19, 2019 on RTL.

“John Wick 3” soon in theaters

The FILMSTARTS review for “John Wick 3”
Series “John Wick 4” and “John Wick”
If “John Wick 3” is successful, “John Wick 4” is only a matter of time. Because even the cool, trained killer can’t go against the laws of the market! In an interview, Keanu Reeves and director Chad Stahelski already revealed that there are still some ideas in the drawer for the fourth film that have not yet sold out.
A “John Wick” series is also being planned, but Reeves says it’s still in its infancy. It is marketed under the title “The Continental” and revolves around the hitmen who find refuge in the Hitman Hotel. However, John Wick himself will only stop there.
“John Wick” runs today at 10:20 pm on ProSieben.
