In 2014, Keanu Reeves reinvented himself as cinema’s resident badass, portraying a super assassin with a definite grudge in the genre-defining action film John Wick. But Wick’s story is far from over, and audiences will get to find out what’s next in the high throttle sequel John Wick: Chapter Two.
Having gotten his revenge against the Tarasovs in New York, Jonathan ‘John’ Wick (Reeves) travels to Rome in order to repay a blood debt that he owes to a legendary assassin. Arriving in the ancient city, he is drawn into a shadowy world of an international assassins guild, and squares off against some of the world’s most vicious killers.
The trailer for John Wick: Chapter Two is all that we could have hoped for, promising a completely action packed ride from start to finish. Not only is Keanu Reeves rocking his black killer suit and slick gun fu moves, but he’s also got his new canine friend backing him up.
The teaser shows a clear shift in terms of action from New York to Rome, and it’s apparent that we’ll meet new characters as well as some familiar faces . In New York Ian McShane and Lance Riddick are back at the Continental handling the affairs of their numerous criminal clientele, while Ruby Rose stakes her claim as a vicious Mafia godmother. Reeves finds a new enemy in Common, who’s portraying Rose’s lethal head of security. Laurence Fishburne also makes an appearance as a mysterious new character, who has close ties to John.
Prepare for an action-packed night out at the movies when John Wick: Chapter Two is released on May 18, 2017.
