There's been a lot of talk about John Wick 3 ever since production photos revealed Keanu Reeves riding a horse. In a recent feature with GQ, director Chad Stahelski revealed the scene in which Reeves rides the horse almost didn't make the final cut. "Somebody took that picture while we were shooting in Brooklyn and released it," he explained. "I thought it was cool. Keanu thought it was cool. I don't think the studio thought it was cool. [...] Nobody wanted the horses. I had to fight for that one. People thought it was too weird."

"The Continental Experience is a one-of-a-kind immersive event, recreating the interior of John Wick's famous safe haven: The Continental Hotel," a press release reads.

Inside, activations representing all three films will bring fans closer to the story than ever before. Hotel staff & characters will interact and perform, prizes will be given out, and there may even be some special guests stopping by."
