Of all the movies to air commercials during tonight’s Super Bowl, it’s probably John Wick: Chapter 2 that will benefit the most. Why? Because the release of John Wick: Chapter 2 is less than a week away. It’s going to be a very competitive weekend at the box office with three huge studio releases including John Wick and LEGO Batman Movie, but it’s contender number three that enjoys a little humour at its expense in the John Wick Super Bowl ad. If you like things a shade darker, like Fifty Shades Darker, the makers of John Wick don’t want you to make the obvious choice this Valentine’s Day weekend.
So get ready to see John Wick throw some Shade at its esteemed competition this coming weekend in their Super Bowl ad.
In the second John Wick film, “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.” Keanu Reeves returns as the hitman just trying to enjoy his retirement. John Leguizamo, Lance Reddick, Bridget Moynahan, Thomas Sadoski, and Ian McShane are also coming back from the first film with Common, Ruby Rose, Peter Stormare and Laurence Fishburne all taking there first crack at the world of Wick.
John Wick: Chapter 2 is in theatres everywhere this Friday.
