First he hunted down the mob brat who killed his dog. Then he broke the sacred laws of the criminal underworld. And now, in John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum, Keanu Reeves’ nigh-on unstoppable hitman is in the crosshairs of every assassin in the world, a $14 million bounty placed on his head. Not only that, but he’s leading Empire’s Massive Action Special issue – a celebration of all the bombastic, bang-for-buck blockbusters heading your way in the coming months.
As well as going access-all-areas on the John Wick threequel – chatting to Keanu, Halle Berry, director Chad Stahelski and more – we get an early peek at the jaw-dropping stunts to come in Fast & Furious: Hobbs & Shaw and Men In Black: International, and take a trip with Keanu through his most iconic action spectaculars, from Point Break to The Matrix, via Speed. This issue really doesn’t dip below 50 miles per hour.
The adrenaline rush continues in our Empire 30 celebrations. This time it’s all about Mission: Impossible master Christopher McQuarrie, with action movie icon Tom Cruise and Mission stalwart Simon Pegg talking their experiences working with him. Plus, the filmmaker answers your reader questions, touching on everything from Henry Cavill’s Fallout moustache to his Usual Suspects Oscar.
