John Wick: Chapter 2 – Keanu strikes back in first look

A surprise hit of 2014, John Wick was a no nonsense action thriller about a man who returns to a deadly profession to avenge his… dog? It was loud, violent and a good time in the theatre. Thankfully the studio gods have looked down upon us kindly and have green lit a sequel – check out the first trailer for John Wick: Chapter 2 by hitting the play button in the header above!


Looking good so far! I loved the concept of ‘The Continental’ hotel in the first film, and it looks to make a return here. Keanu Reeves is joined by a solid supporting cast in this, including Common, John Leguizamo (returning from the first film) and Ruby Rose, who   continues her Hollywood domination here, playing Ares – an assassin who doesn’t look like she cares much for our beloved hero. Of course, the real surprise here is the Matrix reunion with Lawrence Fishburne joining the cast as a character with the crazy cool name of ‘The Bowler King’. I’m looking forward to seeing these two reunite on screen.

Here’s the official synopsis:

In this next chapter following the 2014 hit, legendary hitman John Wick [Keanu Reeves] 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 theatres 10 February 2017.
