John Wick: Chapter 2 is almost upon us. It’s only a matter of weeks before Keanu Reeves blasts through bad guys like it’s nobody business but his own, and we cannot wait. The titular superhuman assassin with a loyal heart of gold will find himself dishing out the beatings in brutal fashion once again next month, as promised in this new collection of photos, which are as stylish as they are bloodthirsty (check them out below).
For the sequel, Reeves is joined by Common, Ruby Rose, Riccardo Scamarico, Ian McShane, Bridget Moynihan, Lance Reddick and Laurence Fishburne (signalling a little Matrix reunion for the two). Almost all of them are promptly displayed in these newest stills, which don’t exactly promote anything new, but hopefully deliver more of what you’re anticipating. We can only hope the same will be said about the upcoming film when it premieres in February.
Action sequels are rarely consistent. We think that’s fair to say. Whereas Mission: Impossible and the Fast & Furious franchise have upped the ante in fun and exciting ways with their newest, surprising sequels, most action cinema continuation often leaves viewers bored and underwhelmed. The trailers for John Wick: Chapter 2 have watered our palettes, to be sure, but that doesn’t guarantee it’ll be good. However, in a time defined by cynicism, let’s try to be a little more optimistic, shall we?
John Wick: Chapter 2 comes in guns blazing on February 10, where it’ll square off against both Fifty Shades Darker and The LEGO Batman Movie at the box office. For a look at what’s in store for you, be sure to check out those aforementioned new stills, along with some previously released ones, in the gallery below!
