John Wick could also be near-invincible, however the actor who performs him is not.
New movies from the set of John Wick three: Parabellum present Keanu Reeves working by way of heavy rain whereas filming a scene. As quickly because the take is full, Reeves limps in ache and hunches over on the street close to the sidewalk, rocking forwards and backwards to stretch out the tendons and ligaments in his knees and shake off the discomfort.
The second of the 2 set movies, posted on Twitter by Hollywood Pipeline, sees Reeves and his grey Pitbull pup pal hailing a cab. In the previous few seconds of the clip, it seems that Reeves remains to be cautious to place weight on his bum knee, as he hobbles a bit whereas strolling in the direction of the yellow taxi.
Whereas it is smart from a storytelling standpoint that Reeves’ John could be bruised-up and battered within the movie, provided that it follows the professional murderer as he bolts by way of New York Metropolis in hopes of outrunning the a whole bunch of individuals after the $14 million bounty on his head, it is disconcerting to see that the actor is not, nicely, appearing — not fully.
Actors consistently put themselves at risk, notably motion stars like Reeves and Mission: Not possible lead Tom Cruise (who has practically died on set so many occasions, we’re beginning to consider he is half cat), and it appears based mostly on these movies that Reeves could have taken a tumble whereas performing a stunt for John Wick three: Parabellum. It would not be the primary time he is accomplished that, that is for certain.
Approach again in 2001 whereas taking pictures The Matrix, Reeves complained of “pain in his left ankle after the rehearsal of a tough stunt,” and was later put in a forged. Just some weeks in the past, the actor was noticed on the Parabellum set with a bandage round his thumb. A special snap, this time of the movie’s precise motion, confirmed Reeves’ John carrying a black sleeve over his ring finger — suggesting that the character will get it minimize off sooner or later within the film. Did Reeves injure his thumb whereas taking pictures a finger-hacking sequence? And if he did, did he bang-up his knee in one other scene? Is Reeves going tremendous technique and getting harm every time John does?
At this level, we won’t say for sure whether or not John Wick will stroll with a noticeable limp in Parabellum after some brutal run-in with somebody who needs him lifeless, or if Reeves’ harm even leads to the film, however we’re wishing the star a speedy recovering in any case.
John Wick three: Parabellum will open on Might 17, 2019.
