Yeah, he’s thinking he’s back. Lionsgate has just unveiled the new trailer for John Wick: Chapter 2, which drags Keanu Reeves‘ legendary hitman back into the fray again, this time to help a former associate who wants to take control of an assassins’ guild. For a guy who claims he really just wants out of the game, he sure is bad at staying retired. Click through to see the new John Wick: Chapter 2 trailer.
John Wick: Chapter 2 Trailer
Chad Stahelski is directing solo this time around, since his John Wick co-director David Leitch left to direct The Coldest City and Deadpool 2. Thankfully, it looks like he’s done a fine job handling things on his own. John Wick: Chapter 2 looks impeccably choreographed and precisely shot, just like the last film, without feeling too much like a retread. It expands the underworld that we first explored in John Wick, introducing intriguing new characters like the ones played by Laurence Fishburne, Common, and Ruby Rose.
According to Stahelski, Chapter 2 is to John Wick what Aliens was to Alien, in that it takes the premise in a different direction. While we’ll have to wait and see how his efforts have panned out, one thing we definitely know is different is that John Wick: Chapter 2 will not kill off another puppy. Animal lovers can watch this one without worry. Probably.
John Wick: Chapter 2 opens February 10, 2017. Also starring are Riccardo Scamario, Ian McShane, Peter Stormare, and Thomas Sadoski.
