When John Wick first premiered, it was a pleasant surprise. Keanu Reeves showed us that he can bring the same high impact action we saw previously from The Matrix films in a film surrounding a lonely assassin coming out of retirement for revenge. Who thought a movie based on the death of a dog would be so awesome?!? After grossing almost $90 million on a $20 million budget (and quite a cult following), it’s natural that a sequel would get greenlit.
Check out the trailer for John Wick: Chapter Two…..
John once again comes out of retirement. Let’s hope his new dog survives this go round. Returning in addition to Reeves is Lance Reddick and Ian McShane reprising their roles from the Continental Hotel. Ruby Rose (of Orange is the New Black fame) and Common are newcomers to the franchise as two of his new adversaries. It also looks to reunite Laurence Fishburne and Reeves from their Matrix days, as Fishburne looks like he will be the big baddie.
Legendary hitman John Wick is forced back out of retirement by a former associate plotting to seize control of a shadowy international assassins’ guild. Bound by a blood oath to help him, John travels to Rome, where he squares off against some of the world’s deadliest killers.
John Wick: Chapter 2 hits theaters February 10, 2017.
