“You want a war? Or do you wanna just give me a gun?”
Keanu Reeves is thinking he’s back as the action hero John Wick in Lionsgate’s first trailer for John Wick: Chapter 2. The footage debuted at Lionsgate’s panel at New York Comic-Con this weekend, following a poster reveal and announcement for the panel last month. Lionsgate also unveiled a second poster for John Wick: Chapter 2, and a virtual reality video game has been announced based on the film franchise, titled John Wick Chronicles, for the HTC Vive.
The trailer showcases Keanu Reeves (The Matrix) back in the action-packed role of John Wick, as he faces off against new foes played by Common (Smokin’ Aces) and Ruby Rose (Orange is the New Black), with help from allies both old, such as Ian McShane (Deadwood) and Reeves’ former Matrix co-star Lawrence Fishburne. While the length of the teaser is naturally brief, it still manages to be rammed full of the action set-pieces fans will have come to expect from the John Wick franchise by this point.
John Wick: Chapter Two is set for release in UK on 17th February 2017.
