  • The title "Parabellum" comes from the Latin phrase: "Si vis pacem, para bellum" which means "If you want peace, prepare for war." It is also an alternate name for the ubiquitous 9mm handgun cartridge ("9mm Parabellum").

  • Halle Berry broke three ribs while filming the movie

  • Keanu Reeves has stated in interviews that he does not want the franchise to be destroyed by sequels and the 'John Wick' series will most likely conclude in Chapter 3.

  • The glass-structure where John fights Shinobi 1 and Shinobi 2 in the film's climax cost $4 million to construct.

  • When Winston welcomes John to the glass penthouse he states that they only use that room for special occasions; to see what the enemy is holding under the table. This is a clear tip-off that Winston is now, indeed, John's enemy and no longer an ally.
