2014's neo-noir John Wick was a bit of a word of mouth hit, topping charts once it hit video-on-demand, despite a lacklustre theatrical run. The success of this low-budget revenge thriller was very much a surprise, then. As was the sudden announcement of a follow-up movie from director Chad Stahleski back in May 2015.
Now, as we get our first few glimpses of John Wick: Chapter Two, Keanu Reaves is looking dressed to kill and is seemingly joined by a new canine companion:
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 Two also stars Common, Bridget Moynahan, Ian McShane, John Leguizamo, Lance Reddick and Lawrence Fishburne.
Set for release 17 February 2017.
