This First Look At John Wick 3 Gives You Two More Dogs To Be Really Worried About, As Well As That Horse

I'm so stressed about this already.

The John Wick franchise is as notorious for being kicking off by a dog murder as it is for, well, all the other murders in it.

I mean, part of the joy of seeing Keanu Reeves take out, at the internet’s best estimate, 84 people in the first movie and 128 in the second is remembering that he was retired and just chilling at home until the bad guys killed his puppy.

Also, in order to be as beloved as the John Wick series even after starting by making your audience sit through a dog murder, you have to make a really f**king good action movie. Which they did. Two of them. Only one of which have dog murders.

The third in the franchise, the creatively titled John Wick: Chapter Three, is out in May 2019, and we got our first taste of it with a set photo featuring Keanu riding an actual horse through city traffic.

Now we’ve got our for-real official First Look from the threequel, and I’m sorry to have to tell you that you now have not only a horse but two more dogs to worry about.

Plus Halle Berry – although she can probably handle herself.

Entertainment Weekly confirms that JW3 kicks off with Wick still on the run after the end of the second movie, meeting up with Berry and her two action-ready Belgian Malinois good boys in the Middle East.

We don’t have any more pictures from the movie, but here is another picture of a Belgian Malinois being handsome and good.

The cast also features Billions’ Asia Kate Dillon and Anjelica Huston, but let’s be real – everyone’s going to be looking at the dogs, worrying about the dogs, admiring the dogs’ insane action choreography, and silently vowing to murder anyone who hurts the dogs.

Disney’s Live-Action Lady And The Tramp Will Star Real, Actual Dogs Instead Of CGI Good Boys And Girls

"Who doesn’t want to see two real dogs kiss over a plate of spaghetti?"

While the debate rages around whether next year’s Lion King remake is “live-action” or not (spoiler: it is not), another of Disney’s remakes of a classic animated film is skipping that whole thing in the best way possible.

The live-action version of Lady And The Tramp, which was announced earlier this year with the voices of Tessa Thompson as Lady and Justin Theroux as the Tramp, is currently in post-production.

In an interview with Collider earlier this week, one of the actors playing an actual human revealed that the dogs are real.


No uncanny-valley CGI or Wes Anderson stop-motion whimsy here. Just an IRL purebred cocker spaniel and a rakish grey mutt being horny over pasta.

Me, extremely ready to watch this movie every day for a year.

There are real dogs. Who doesn’t want to see two real dogs kiss over a plate of spaghetti? That is the main draw for me. You get the charisma of real dogs in there,” says Thomas Mann, who’s playing Lady’s human Jim Dear.

Here are some more words he said about the dogs!

“We shot with the dogs, every day. They were on set and they weren’t even [professionally] trained. They found these dogs and started training them about three months before. They just wanted to find the perfect dogs.”

Uh, all dogs are perfect, mate, but go on.

“It was crazy because they didn’t know they were working, so they would run off in the middle of a take, and then come back over. You have to be extra patient because you have to be good every time for when they are good once.

“It was a lot of fun. It was so cute, every day, to just have a bunch of dogs to play with. It made the job a lot less stressful.”

Just for the record, Mann himself is also adorable. So we also have that to look forward to.

But mainly: dogs!
