John Wick – Chapter 2 Trailer Released

Yeah, I’m thinking he’s back.

One of the biggest surprises of the 2014 cinematic year was John Wick, an October-release action movie starring Keanu Reeves. It wasn’t expected to be much of anything, so when it came out of relative nowhere and blew audiences away with its style, action, and impressive universe building, it made even more of an impact because of the surprise.

The way it managed to build up an entire universe without a whole lot of exposition was one of its strengths, leading many to wonder what might come from a sequel. Well, since the first movie made enough money, we are going to get that sequel. Today, the first trailer dropped for John Wick: Chapter 2.

There are three talking points coming out of the trailer. (1) The film is going to take place, at least in part, in Rome, where our protagonist has some business he needs to see resolved. (2) After losing his dog in the last film, Mr. Wick has gotten a new one. We can only hope it doesn’t suffer the same fate. (3) Laurence Fishburne, who co-starred with Reeves in the Matrix movies, is in this movie and on-screen with Reeves at the same time. This is their first team-up since the third Matrix. One can expect at least one knowing nod to this fact.

John Wick: Chapter 2 will be released on February 10, 2017, opposite The LEGO Batman Movie and what will be, without a doubt, the greatest movie of the year.
