Keanu's Back In The Slick, Action-Packed Trailer For JOHN WICK
Someone has killed his dog! Bitches. Must. Pay.
The Fantastic Fest Gala Screening of John Wick, starring Keanu Reeves, directed by stuntmen Chad Stahelski and David Leitch, is just around the corner. Production company Lionsgate dropped the first trailer today, in which everything blows up real good.
It is a reunion of sorts. Stahelski and Leitch worked on The Matrix series with Reeves. This is their first foray into direction and the end result looks as polished as any Hollywood production can. Once the trailer kicks in there looks to be plenty of gunplay and opportunities for Reeves to display his action chops.
I feel it is safe to assume that the story of John Wick, a former hitman who comes out of retirement when some thugs jack his ride and kill his dog, is merely a bridge between set pieces. And when an action film clocks in at over 2 hours long you had better fill those gaps with some kick-ass action and everything in this trailer suggests that they have!
Reeves is supported by an admirable cast including Michael Nyqvist, Alfie Allen, Adrianne Palicki, Dean Winters, Bridget Moynahan, Ian McShane, John Leguizamo and Willem Dafoe.
John Wick blasts into cinemas on October 24th!
