Where was John Wick 3 filmed
Posted by
The grace period is over. The revel excommunicado has a global bounty placed on his head, after breaking the rules conducting business on Continental grounds. From now on, John has to face the High Table's resolutions, as he becomes a $14 million target for any hired killer in the world.

John Wick Chapter 3 - Parabellum picks up shortly after where the second part ended, with John on the run. Although this third installment is probably the last one, two new spin-offs are in the pipeline: the film Ballerina and the TV series The Continental.

Keanu Reeves leads the returning cast along with Ian McShane (Winston), Laurence Fishburne (the Bowery King) and John Leguizamo (Aurelio). Director Chad Stahelski is expanding the world of assassins and gold coins with some new faces. John's ally Sofia is played by Halle Berry, Mark Dacascos is hitman Zero, Anjelica Huston performs the Director of the High Table, comedian Jason Mantzoukas is Tick Tock Man and Japanese actor Hiroyuki Sanada plays an undisclosed role.

It is confirmed that John Wick 3 was filmed in New York, Montreal and Morocco, but additional shooting may have taken place in Japan. We will be updating and improving this report soon, with new details about the film. Also don't miss out our complete filming locations guide about where John Wick 2 was filmed.

Continental Hotel John Wick
The Hotel continues to expand in every new installment with new rooms and areas. We discovered where was filmed the main lobby of the hotel in John Wick 3: The Williamsburgh Savings Bank is an impressive neoclassical style landmark, designed like a temple to finance and transformed into an event space (sometimes it houses the Brooklyn Flea Market).

The United Palace of Cultural Arts, the former Loew's 175th Street Theater, was used for a scene set in Russia. Located at 4140 Broadway in Washington Heights (Manhattan), the venue opened in 1930 as a deluxe movie theatre, until it was purchased in 1969 by an evangelistic church association.

We found and selected some very interesting items to help understand why the John Wick movie series have reached the status of semi-cult movies. For instance, someone has produced a replica of the blood oath marker coins used in the film!
Look at the price of this bloody variant of a Funko vinyl figure. There is an incredibly detailed and beautifully packaged re-edited Blue Ray edition. Also you can get your hands on one of these cool movie posters.
