Warner Bros. has dropped a body-count-heavy first trailer for their assassin sequel John Wick: Chapter 2 starring Keanu Reeves. Check it out above!
In the sequel, apparently set just 4 days after the first film, John Wick is forced to 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 is joined by returning cast members Ian McShane, Lance Reddick, John Leguizamo, Bridget Moynahan and Tom Sadowski. Joining the sequel are new recruits Common, Ruby Rose, Peter Stormare, and Morpheus himself, Laurence Fishburne.
Sounds promising! John Wick was a nice surprise when it was released in 2014, a scrappy little action movie with a great hero at the centre and a fully realised world. I hope that the sequel brings us more of that world, and by the looks of the trailer it doesn’t disappoint. We’re in for a good ride.JOHN WICK: CHAPTER 2 fires into Australian theatres sometime in 2017 (release date to be confirmed).
