Video: Keanu Reeves ‘Goes Off’ in Official ‘John Wick: Chapter 2’ Trailer
Laurence Fishburne, Ruby Rose, and Bridget Moynahan co-star in the action-packed sequel, hitting theaters Feb. 10, 2017December 19, 2016
Keanu Reeves’ titular hitman is forced out of retirement once more in the official trailer for “John Wick: Chapter 2,” unleashed Monday by Summit Entertainment.
Chad Stahelski and David Leitch co-directed the neon-lit, tightly-choreographed original, which took unsuspecting action fans by storm in 2014. They’ve collaborated again on the sequel, which judging by the trailer promises to deliver much more of the same (though, this time it looks like Wick’s dog might survive).
“Chapter 2” introduces a new villain in The Bowery King, played by Laurence Fishburne, who starred alongside Reeves in “The Matrix” trilogy. There’s also a new setting, as Wick travels to Rome to square off against an international assassins’ guild.
Co-stars include newcomers Common and Ruby Rose, as well as returning players Ian McShane, Bridget Moynahan, Lance Reddick, and John Leguizamo.
