Probably because the blue looks better with that background

Oh man, wait till he notices that they changed everyone's sizes on the Spiderman Homecoming poster- hey! There's no giant Robert Downey Jnr scene!
I'll alert the Hague.
Feels a bit early to do a brexit movie
I see they dropped ‘the uncivil war’ bit for Americans, wonder why?
Meet the man who likes to alter the colour of his sweater.
Nah, thats just the final color grading.
Get this team a VFX Oscar.
John Wick - 77
John Wick: Chapter 2 - 128
John Wick: Chapter 3 Parabellum - At least 5,000+
I feel like the marketing in the next five months is going to be so exciting.
STOP IT, the movie already has my money, does it want my soul too?!?!
Mob of trained assassins hesitates as a single voice from the crowd asks "What's that in his hand? Is that... a pencil?"
So... It's a fair fight?
That's a nice poster, I like it even better than Chapter 2's.
John vs The World
Jesus I don't think they could market a movie any better than how they're doing it for John Wick 3
No dog in the poster?
All of the people in the front row are in danger of severe hearing loss, or worse.
Surely there's some friendly fire action going on here.
That’s a lot of potential tinnitus in one poster.
Those poor motherfuckers don’t stand a chance
Textless version [4050x5718]
Edit: All textless posters for the John Wick franchise including the other one for JW3
Didn't know they're remaking Matrix Reloaded.
Aw, that’s adorable. They think they have enough people.
I'm reminded of those educational videos that show sperm advancing on an egg.
I’ve never seen any of these but the memes and references make me want to
As long as the guys at the back start shooting first he should be fine
Seriously who isn't a hitman in the John Wick Universe (JWU)?
I like it.
I feel like I've seen this theme and composition on a comic book cover before. Anyone else got that same feeling?
EDIT: I think maybe it reminds me a bit of the cover to The Walking Dead #50 and the special edition reprint of The Walking Dead #1.
"When I'm done, half of humanity will still exist"
"All I'm surrounded by is fear...and dead men."
They all gonna die
The shadow makes a 3.
He's gonna extend his hand and stop the bullets, isn't he?
All I see is Neo sticking his hand out and stopping all the bullets mid air, then everyone else drops their guns and runs away.
I wonder how many people will spot the cameo in the assassin crowd?
Here we go again... again.
The perspective is wonky. It looks like John is falling over backwards.
Someone should've told the two guys with Shotguns to stand at the front of the crowd, not the back
Might be more effective if only the people in the front line had guns drawn. All I can think about as it is now is how ridiculous the idea of the people in the back firing would be.
Looks like they about to charge him
one at a time of course
Remember the poster for the second movie when we thought a lot of guns were pointed at him?
Any good soul to make it textless? I'd really appreciate
Lol that's all the men they brought?
Anyone left alive will be deaf
What’s with Reddit and John Wick? Is this series that good? Is it better than like Jason Bourne or Jack Bower?
About even odds I’d say
Count all those people in the poster and add them to the kill count
They need more guys
Those guys are so fucked
A fucking pencil!
Fuck, I just realized.... he’s gonna die at the end, isn’t he?
Picture without the text if you want it as a wallpaper
Usually this sub is incredibly rough on posters.
Why is this one being heralded as “iconic” and great art and an instant classic? There are hundreds of laudatory comments and pencil jokes highly upvoted, but I’m not seeing any real reason why this poster is considered an amazing example of the form.
Reminds me of this
So, so much.
Rebels: "Lay down your weapons! You are surrounded!"
Vader: "All I am surrounded by is fear. And dead men."
My thoughts: "Man, it would have been cool if that shadow formed the number 3"
This was quickly followed by: "Oh, wait."
The shadows create a city skyline feel.
The entire city vs Wick.
I'd say the odds are about even
Oh, that is fucking awesome!
Still though, they probably should have brought more men to make it a fair fight.
i keep seeing batman (the shadows)
He’s got this.
I see the social media marketing agency promoting this movie is in full swing the past few days. Cheers, guys.
I wonder how many pens he would need for that crowd. About 5 maybe?
I can’t wait for someone post a motion poster where it’s bullet time of him bending backwards like the matrix
He's just gonna hold out his hand and stop all the bullets like he did in that other movie. You think they would learn.
So only worry about the back row then. Got it.
When the level 99 character goes in a level 10 PVP server.
SMH yet another 'Shoving the entire cast on the poster' /s
Watching the first one for the first time since the theatres, woooah man it’s better than I remember. Can’t wait for this!
Also his dog was too cute:(
Imagine John Wick, with a book in one hand and a pencil in the other... FUCK.
Just one question... How the hell are you supposed to take out that many people at once? I am impressed, Mr Wick.
This is pretty badass. Can't wait for the action choreography for this one!
The guys in the front better do a sorority squat or something...
Anyone else praying for The Operator from The Night Comes for Us to cross over to this franchise?
welp, time to marathon the first 2 movies until may 17th
OMG They made the John Wick skin from Fortnite into a movie!!
I like that the shadows make a 3
This is good, but the other poster is better..
Am I the onlyone who made sure everyone was actually aiming at him only to be disappointed by a few?
“I’d say the odds are even”
He's gonna set the underworld on fire, everyone is going to be so blood lust crazy to kill Wick, they're gonna start killing each other just to get to him, ensuring endless blood feuds/revenge killings.
It’s cool how the mob’s shadow makes a 3
He’s able to stop bullets guys cmon you’re not gonna kill him that way
I appreciate that the lighting in this poster matches the lighting in the previous chapter 3 poster (with Wick on the outside of the glass Continental door). If you needed a summary of this movie in two images, these two posters explain it in style.
this person in the crowd cracked me up, I don’t think that’s a safe way to hold/use a shotgun.
Agent Smith tried this horde-around-him tactic... Didn't work out for him. Granted it was just a VR simulation that time.
Is the shadow the roof of the hotel?
He'll get tracked by alibi
you know that dog dies again when its not in the poster...someone /r/photoshopbattles that dawg in
Not a fan of adding a subtitle. If the first two didn't have one then this shouldn't either. At least be consistent.
Drinking game: take a shot every time John get a headshot
I mean, that's a very ineffective way to try to kill him though. At least half the shots are just going to hit people in the rows in front of them.
What does parabellum mean?
Those people should probably leave before he finds a pencil.
New phone wallpaper
Poster missed the make. The shadow should form the number 3
Why does every assassin only have a pistol?
John Wick 4: Makarov.
did poster is so powerfull just like him they cant fucking kill him
That’s going to be a lot of burst eardrums
YOOOO THEY MADE JOHN WICK FROM FORTNITE INTO A MOVIE
What are the shadows/negative space trying to show us? (if anything)
New phone background
To think it all started with a dead dog...
These odds seem quite unfair, the goons are gonna need a couple thousand more to make it a fair fight.
This poster stirred up some a very specific childhood memory, specifically the third Aladdin movie, CODE RED!
This is why I wish I had the patience to photoshop. Someone photoshop the gun into a pencil!
Ok at least... TWO guys are pointing guns at the back of someone elses head.
To quote the Saint of Killers -
Not enough gun...
Is it just me or is the size and perspective of John a bit... off?
They should've made the shadows form a giant gun pointing straight to his head.
They’re knocking these posters outta the park, trailer looks good, this could be the best one yet.
And somehow he's going to kill all of them, with a pen.
And still they all miss him.
hah thats amazing
Anyone else think that looks like the Donald?
There’s no way the people in the back row can shoot JW without shooting some of the people in front of them.
John Wick "Yeah, but all you monsters are going to have to face Me."
Can I wait for this to be released?
Nope, definitely not.
Pre John Wick 1: no more killing
John Wick 3: kill everyone in sight
John Wick, Vs The Punisher.
Can someone please photoshop a book in his hand. Thanks!
So run time on Wikipedia is 143 minutes.
What if the trailer is from the first 43 minutes and then we get 100 minutes of Keanu’s dead body laying in the field where he finally gets got?
Plot twist of the century?
John Wick: No Seriously Stop Killing His Dog, You Fucking Dummies
John Wick vs The World
I love that John Wick has pretty much become Keanu’s version of a superhero. Like I always think of John Wick when I think of Keanu.
Haven’t watched a John Wick film but this really makes me want to
Anyone know which ad agency is handling John Wick's marketing? Imma send ma resume 😂
Spoiler alert: he kills them all
God has left the server
I liked that the first one felt real. They killed that vibe with a pencil.
I really really hope the third brings back some of the gun realism of the first. The silencer fight and holding out the bullet proof jacket front as a shield very nearly ruined a movie I very much enjoyed otherwise.
I need this in a desktop wallpaper version. The colors are amazing.
Never seen a john wick movie
Is a dog Gona die?
Having an opinion in 2019.
I really need to watch these movies.
Repost without 'animated' in the title!
Omg that actually scared me.
"What's animated about this PO-JESUS FUCK NO!"
I was looking at the lady in red like, "Wow, this seems too real to be anima- Ahh!"
I'm staying the hell away from this movie.
why are there like 50 comments that all sound exactly the same in this thread, and all sound like totally fake reactions.
Like.. did you really almost have a heart attack from the scissors moving? Of course not. What is going on
So a gif?
So you are here for a haircut?
literally what is the point of this lmao
nah fuck that dude
Very nice touch and also very unsettling
This is not anima....eugh!
"What? This isn't animate...OOOOOOOKAY NO"
Some Redditor gave away the entire plot and twist in the last thread on 'Us'. Be very careful here.
Snip Snip Nigga
If this releases in Russia: “Our”
Looks pretty shitty to be honest, the shoulder and head not moving makes it seem like it's a disembodied arm.
Woaaah that is awesome!
All this got out of me was a chuckle and everyone's here acting like this gave them a heart attack
This is going to be one hell of a creepy movie.
Now, this is how you fuc#$% create a scary movie poster!
That's actually kinda funny
Maybe someone can answer this for me here- because Disney now owns ILM, but ILM continues to work on movies produced by other studios (including "Us" by Universal), does Disney have any say in the movie or are they strictly making money off other studios having to hire their effects company?
kinda ruined it with the title
These animated posters are kinda gimmicky.
SNIP SNAP SNIP SNAP SNIP SNAP
So animated posters are a trend now?
Thanks I hate it
oh hell fucking no
Good work. This movie has the potential to be awesome.
Oooh. I really dont like that. But I like it too. I'm so excited to see this movie. This makes the hairs stand up.
Ok no joke I almost got a heart attack from this
Yeah, that's creepy as shit. I can't wait.
so a lady with scissors is scary now?
Brilliant! Love a cinemagraph.
Marketing for this film has been on point. All of the posters have been great, and the trailer was freaky as hell. Just hope the movie itself lives up to expectations.
Heart definitely skipped a beat. I don't know why that was so freaky to me...
Kinda freaked me out at first lol. But hey, Jordan Peele is back!
its a cinemagraph poster lol. thought it is an animated movie.
Holy fuck. I was staring at it for so long thinking "wow the animation design is so lifelike, that's crazy"
Then it started moving... Well played.
John Wick - 77
John Wick: Chapter Two - 128
John Wick: Chapter 3 Parabellum - At least 3000+
Genuinely great poster it sets the tone perfectly without being flashy.
Pseudo-textless (I left the Continental hotel logo as this is part of the photo) [2073x3072]
Edit: as soon as I get my hands on an original full-textless I will update the comment.
Edit 2: all textless posters for the John Wick franchise
Yeah, I'm thinking he's back.
Read it as Constantine first
God I hope no one steps on his ant farm.
This poster is way cooler than Spider-Man's.
Thaaaat iiiis aaawesoooome...
Surprised they aren't going with "Big Wick Energy"
Official title is John Wick 3: Chapter 3 - Parabellum according to the movie's website
Hide your pencils, ladies and gentlemen.
John Wick 3: Because Keanu needs to smack the taste of Replicas out of your mouth.
In John Wick 4 John meets Abram for a second time who reveals himself to be Satan. John Wick then changes his last name to Constantine and vows to kill him.
Trailer dropping in 50 minutes (5pm UK time).
I'm a bit bummed because at first glance I thought it said "Constantine" and I was like "oh shit, they're the same dude!"
Honesty for a second without reading the title my mind read Constantine after I saw the C and I got super excited for a second.
I'm very aroused
Cant wait. Loved the first two.
I love being incontinent
Strange things are afoot
Fuck yea yhe 71st of YAM cant wait
Time to get my Credit Card.
In the poster he is outside of The Continental, which is to say apart from the criminal underworld, and it rules and all the protections it affords. Clever poster. I can't wait to see this movie.
Thought it said Constantine on the glass..got very confused and exited for a second there.
can we just admire how fucking great this teaser poster is. Very very nice
"I'm deeply sorry Mr. Wick, we have a very strict 'no pets' policy."
may 17th? Geez it feels like march-july has a lot of good movies coming out around the same time!
BRING ME THE TRAILER!!!!
Bugger, I misread the text at first and thought it was a hint at Constantine 2. Now Im sad.
i flipped this poster for my sanity
Ahhhhh I LOVE this.
...With a fooking pencil
You, uhhh, working again?
Please be better than 2
Godzilla KotM and Wick 3 BOTH in May? I don’t think I’ve been this hyped to visit the movies in one month in a looooooong time.
They were going a little to far with the world building in the second one, where every third person on the street was apparently a assassin, I hope they pulled a little back in this one while keeping the well shot action the series is known for.
So I have no seen any of the John Wick movies... should I give them a go? I'm guessing people enjoy them? I do like action movies but the John Wick movies just never came past me to watch.
Spoilers: John Wick dies at the end of 3. He then goes to hell for his crimes, and has to fight demons to earn his way into heaven. It's titled John Wick 4: Constantine.
I thought it was written 'Constantine'
This is already out in May? Theyre really able to smash these movies out for how god damn amazing they are huh...
Very stylish and cool.
You don't need the name of the film because the character is already iconic
Where is my fucking dog?
Well I hope they bring back the gun play accuracy that was in John Wick 1. In 2 he had some infinite mags
Crazy how in just under 5 years we’re getting full trilogy that may be considered one of the greats. Of course we have yet to see the third instalment but if we’re going off the quality of the first two, I’m optimistic.
Am I the only one, who feels like John Wick is really overrated. The first one was fine, but the second one was just mediocre and overkill
I flipped it around for anyone interested
Havent seen John Wick 1 or 2. Should I?
I guess I'm the only one who is bored by the John Wick movies. I like Keanu, but they're just nonstop fighting. Ho hum.
I got really confused at first but then realized it was the inside of a door :)
More Keanu please.
Let 👏 him 👏 in! 👏It's cold and wet outside!
thats pretty good
I thought it said Constantine and got super excited ... still excited for this too
Oh shit this and spider man in the same day?
Got me curious what situation will he be in again.
Wasn't there talk at some point last year about a spin-off series based on the Continental? Whatever happened to that?
John Wick about to be Raid the Continental like hes Rama
If John Wick goes all Gunkata on everybody, I would absolutely lose my shit
So that means a trailer isn't too far off.....
Breaking bad "i'm the one who knocks" comes to mind for several reasons
dang doesn't come out til YAM
Oh fuck to the yessss
teaser poster? What's next, teaser movie?
Yassss! So wet rn
Love this poster!
If another puppy dies I'm gonna lose my shit.
So excited for this
for some reason. i thought that was travis scot
Comes out on my birthday. sweet.
Everything under the "Continental" should be facing us and at the bottom of the poster.
Weird, I was just wondering when we'd get our first look at this film. Maybe my most anticipated of the year!
signs We'll be seeing you, John.
Holy shit, its so close!
Captain Marvel, Endgame, John Wick 3, Spiderman. 4 huge movies coming out within what, 4 months? Yes please
Looked like Asap Rocky for a sec, I was like wait a minute..
Hey nerds, could you photoshop Jason Mantzoukas into this? Heynong Man to you all.
So....Trailer incoming within 24 hours, yes?
Shit is backwards yo.
That is nice
Since theater posters are double sided with a mirror image, I wonder how many theaters will display this backwards?
I finally watched Chapter 2 and I was completely awestruck at the action sequences. I really felt like it took whats great from Chapter 1 and built on it so make this movie even better. It was fantastic. Excited for Chapter 3 but kinda bummed it'll be the last one.
May 71? I can't wait that long!
Cant wait to see this. I'm so excited for the 71st of Yam!
For half a second, I thought it was a teaser for the Starz TV show. Looking forward to BOTH~
Best teaser poster ive even seen tbh
God I love these movies
I love how much this poster conveys with so little thanks to a simple gimmick. John is standing there in the rain, bloodied and looking through the door/window of the Continental. He's bringing the fight to them, and he went through a lot to get there.
They did something different with this poster without overdoing it, and the end result is nothing short of effective.
One hilarious thing about the John Wick universe to me is how everyone seems to be a goddamn assassin. They just crawl out of the woodwork. That homeless guy? Professional assassin. Old lady feeding pigeons? Assassin. Turkish cab driver? Assassin.
Thought it read Constantine for a second.. that would have been an interesting movie
God I'm so excited for this movie
Here's the poster, flipped
WOAH!... It's always a pleasure Mr. Wick!
Holy shit they made the fortnite skin into a movie damn
So glad John Wick is getting a trilogy, he’s definitely become an iconic character in his own right
Thought it said Constantine for a sec lol.
I thought he had killed everyone in the previous 2 movies.
Thought it said “Constantine” at first.
Oh no..not again...
Can’t believe they made a movie out of that Fortnite guy
Now that's how you do a movie poster.
Been seeing a lot of lame promo artwork being put out by big studios lately. This is a breath of fresh air.
All that killing because of a dog.
I like how even the rain is afraid to land on him.
Read that as Constantine backward instead of Continental
Did anyone read this as Constantine at 1st look?
On the outside, looking in.
Oh fuck yeah.
No dog? Why is the dog not the picture of the teaser poster? Also, didn't see Chapter 2, how awful was it?
I thought it said Constantine at first...
Any one else think this is a weird A$ap Rocky promo
Trailer is right around the corner...I can feel it!!
Wait but that's neither the title of the series nor the subtitle... interesting. Not sure why they'd do that.
He's clearly on the outside looking in here. Is that just because he's been kicked out, or because he's about to shoot his way in...?
Aww man, it's in Russian!!!
I am beyond excited for this... IDKW but some of my friends didn't think john wick 2 was that cool.... I'm jazzed.
Didn't chapter 2 JUST come out?
Very nice poster. I hope they release a kick ass trailer soon.
The 71st of May, get ready everyone!
Am I the only one that read it as Constantine at first?
This brightens my subpar day
Does that mean trailer coming soon?
Fucking. Awesome. Poster.
Was John Wick 2 good? I still haven't seen it
Please Kill Winston at the end to prove a point , _ ,
next, on Headshot Man: headshots. nothing else.
He's gonna kill everyone in the hotel😈
They made the fortnite guy into a movie???
Comes out on my birthday 😱😍
I have specifically gone out of my way to not watch John Wick 2. I loved the first so much and it made such a statement as a stand alone movie, and his relative lack of speaking in the movie gave it such a sense of mystery for me. The world he was in was so mysterious but non-essential to him and I felt that.
From the trailers the second movie came across as trying to milk it. Maybe not, but that's what it seemed like. I didn't want to know more about the world he came from, because that was such an essential element of the first: him not wanting to go back to that world. He got out and had to reach back in, but never wanted to go back.
That being said, here's my actual question. With the above feelings about the first movie, should I really watch the second or will it ruin the magic for me?
Speaking of John Wick, I watched the first one again recently, and honestly I think it's a virtually flawless film. The premise is simple and to the point and therein lies its power. There's barely any expository dialogue, the story is almost exclusively told visually, the pacing is excellent, and it has great cinematography and some of the best directed action scenes I have ever seen. And Keanu Reeves 100% owns the role of John Wick. There's really not one thing I can point to in the film that I would seriously object to. 'John Wick' is what action films should strive to be as good as.
If this was just "The Raid, but with John Wick at the Continental" I'll be plenty happy.
J Freaking Wick, oh hell yeah bruther!
I cant wait for this movie to come out. I've been living my life around this release date.
Friendly reminder that well be seeing John ride a horse through New York at night
My body is ready!
It might just be because I put up our theaters posters, but it really bugs me that everything is backwards.
God I’m so excited
This poster is so fucking badass. It makes me feel like I am the bad guy inside the building, looking at Wick about to enter. He seems like the Grim Reaper in this.
I hope if there is a spin-off of John Wick, it's about the continental and explores the bigger underworld of crime
Can’t believe that 5 years ago, I found some random cheesy b-movie looking shite with Keanu Reeves in it and decided to give it a watch and was blown away. So glad they fleshed out the world with more content, it’s literally peak “Assassin” film, can’t imagine it’ll be topped in my life time.
Now he's outside, looking in
Because he’s on the OUTSIDE now
... but what is Ti Yam?
Hmmmm~! European style!
Out of every single possible day, they chose my country's national day. Why?
I flipped it and made a mirrored version for those of you that need it.
Flipped... that for you?
Well, RIP Continental.
As much as I love chapter 2. The silent gun fight in the subway was kind of silly.
It took me an embarrassing amount of time to realize that the words aren't in cyrillic.
Is this that movie based on the Fortnite skin?
Holy shit I didn’t know Mark Dacascos was in this. Even more excited then I already was.
I miss that puppy!
John Wick 3, Avengers: End Game, last season of GoT2k19, let's gooooo
Was kinda hoping it'd be a shot of the Continental lobby, bodies everywhere and in the wake of tire treads leading to the end of the movie...a single...fucking...pencil.
He looks like a sad puppy stuck outside :(
Time to count the bodies.
Come to think of it, let the bodies hit the floor song would come in handy right now
I thought the window said Constantine.
drawkcab deticxe ma I!
I thought it was Constantine sequel for a second.
Some idiot flipped it... Like them YouTube videos that try to avoid piracy strike
Shit I think it's to much. Jon will kill everyone spoilers
Oh shit!! It gets released on my birthday.
I guess everyone’s donations helped secure the bag
I should watch these movies then it seems
Kind of hope they kill off John Wick honestly, nice way to end the trilogy and it still leaves them with a way to make content via prequels and such (which they clearly will try to do anyway)
I think it's backwards
Looked like he had dreads for a second
Love these movies!!
I know the title says John Wick but for a second as my brain was reading the backward text on the poster it interpreted it as "Constantine" and I got irrationally excited. Then I read it properly and was back on the John Wick hype train but still a little disappointed that Constantine wasn't as loved at the box office as I loved it.
4th Movie Title leaked: Holocaust.
Thats hell of a poster. Cool.
Viggo Tarasov: John was once an associate of ours. They call him Baba Yaga.
Iosef Tarasov: The boogeyman?
Viggo Tarasov: Well, John wasn't exactly the boogeyman. He was the one you sent to kill the fucking boogeyman!
Iosef Tarasov: Oh.
Damn these movies are good
John Wick 4 should just be him killing every single man woman and child on the planet
You know when a movie makes you sympathetic to a character? I actually felt kinda bad that the other assassin who helps Wick gets killed by the female assassin.
Brilliant poster. Shows so little but says so much about the movie already.
Started to reading as Constantine, then realized... There was a hype at the moment, though it is now gone.
Every time one of these are released, my gun collection grows. I wish he would use cheaper guns.
I like it. It’s simple and references the end.
Thought that said Constantine on the glass for a second. Damn. John Wick movies are awesome but so was Constantine
Waiting for this, who will fuck with this dude again? they never learn?
Dang john wick got so popular that they made a movie about him
Who else read Constantine on the poster?
i love the john wick movies!
I accidentally stumbled upon the first one and what a masterpiece it was! Really excited about this one!
Holy smokes that is a great poster
John Wick 1 - Amazing
John Wick 2 - Okay
John Wick 3 - He will kill em all, alone
He better be taking down the entire assassination society in order to properly escape from it
They done turned this man into a window cleaner. What a demotion.
but . . he is not allowed back on Continental grounds
Goddamn if this isn't going to be my lock screen now
After Replicas I am so hesitant about this movie.
This is terrific!
Gotta sit back and reflect on this series before this comes out
The official title (or the one Lionsgate is marketing) is JOHN WICK: CHAPTER 3-PARABELLUM
