The much-loved 2014 action flick John Wick is gearing up for a sequel in 2017, dubbed John Wick: Chapter Two, and a few lucky people roaming the floor of CinemaCon have glimpsed the film’s first promo poster in Las Vegas (seen below)
As far as sequel posters go, it’s pretty ordinary, with Keanu Reeves’ title character strutting ahead in front of a giant number 2 in the background. Although it’s hard to see, those at CinemaCon confirmed that the poster’s tagline reads, “It Ain’t Over ‘Till It’s Over.” So, yeah, I’m guessing he’s back.
