Keanu Reeves is currently one of the most bankable actors because of the success of his John Wick trilogy. There is some good news for the movie’s devotees. On November 10, the John Wick Chapter 4 official trailer was made available.
Keanu Reeves returns to the movie in the fourth sequel as a ruthless assassin. This time, he’s on a mission to preserve his own life rather than commit murder. John Wick 4 opens in theatres on March 24, 2023, under the direction of Chad Stahelski.
John Wick and Donnie Yen converse at the beginning of the trailer. You’re going to die, Donnie warns the hitman. The criminal underworld of John, headed by Bill Skarsgard, then appears in passing.
The clip also shows Winston, played by Ian McShane, giving John advice. Along with Keanu and Ian, Laurence Fishburne and Lance Reddick, who play The Bowery King and Charon, respectively, will also make a comeback.
According to the official plot summary for the movie, Keanu Reeves’ character John Wick finds a way to take down the High Table. Before Wick can regain his release, he must first fight a new adversary with strong worldwide ties and powers that turn former allies become adversaries.
The first installment in the neo-noir action series, 2014’s John Wick, starred Keanu Reeves as the titular retired assassin on the hunt for the burglars who came into his house, stole his vintage automobile, and killed his puppy, the final gift his recently deceased wife gave him.
The Chad Stahelski-helmed film, which made USD 86 million against a USD 20 million budget, proved to be a big hit for the company. The action scenes, plot, and Keanu Reeves performance received overwhelmingly positive reviews from critics.
The John Wick movies have gradually gotten longer over the course of the series, similar to how many movies do in general. The first movie in the series was a snappy 1 hour and 41 minutes, and the final installment, Chapter 3, clocks in at 2 hours and 11 minutes.
Two sequels, John Wick: Chapter 2 and John Wick: Chapter 3 Parabellum, were released after it. Both enjoyed tremendous success and earned overwhelmingly positive reviews from critics.
Chapter 4 was originally slated to premiere on May 21, 2021, however, due to the coronavirus pandemic, it was delayed to May 27, 2022.
Stahelski continued, “I’m trusting my intuition with the film; I’m depending on my own instinct as a director to justify the extra duration.” He hasn’t been led astray by his gut up until this point. With four films under its belt, Ballerina, starring Ana de Armas, and The Continental, John Wick has established itself as a cultural figure.
“Reeves will be joined by Laurence Fishburne, Lance Reddick, Ian McShane, Donnie Yen, Shamier Anderson, Bill Skarsgrd, Rina Sawayama, Hiroyuki Sanada, Scott Adkins, and Clancy Brown in a fantastic cast for him to work with once more. In that regard, he has undoubtedly gained the confidence of fans with the series.”
