With New York Comic-Con gearing up to get underway this weekend, it’s time to start getting excited for new footage from a handful of upcoming movies. One such film that’s looking to have a big showing is John Wick: Chapter 2, the Keanu Reeves-led sequel which will have its first trailer premiered this Saturday at the convention.
Ahead of that happening, though, we of course have the teaser for the trailer, which was Tweeted out today on the film’s official Twitter account. It doesn’t reveal a whole lot, for obvious reasons, but teases the Rome setting of the sequel along with a few shots of Mr. Wick looking all dapper before heading out to a “social affair,” where things seem to take a violent turn – if that gun he’s holding at the end is anything to go by. At only 15 seconds in length, that’s all we really get, but rest assured that the full trailer will deliver the goods when it lands this Saturday.
