John Wick, played by Keanu Reeves, is shown poised for battle in the teaser trailer that was unveiled Friday at Comic-Con.
John Wick is now back in action.
During a Comic-Con panel on Friday, a teaser trailer for John Wick, the fourth movie in the series, was shown, hinting at the tremendous action scenes to come.
The former hitman is overheard being questioned, “Have you given any consideration to where this ends?” and told, “No one, not even you, can murder everyone,” in the Lionsgate movie’s trailer as he is first seen pounding a roped pole.
Reeves’ Wick is shown fighting several bad men and using various weapons, including nunchucks, throughout the clip. Later, when Laurence Fishburne’s Bowery King asks Reeves’ Wick, “You ready, John?” Wick replies, “Yeah.”
At CinemaCon earlier this year, a sneak peek of the movie was initially released. One of the objectives for the fourth movie, according to Reeves and director Chad Stahelski, was to “keep finding fresh and exciting ways to make John Wick suffer.”
“From there, the action starts. Stahelski remarked at the time, “Figure out how to make him suffer, and then design backward.
After just 10 days of release, John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum surpassed the previous action movie in box office earnings. The movie outperformed both John Wick: Chapter 2 ($171.5 million) and the first John Wick ($88.7 million), which had a global box office total of $88.7 million at the end of 2014.
When asked whether the fourth John Wick movie will be the last one, Reeves said, “We simply tackle one at a time,” and Stahelski concurred, saying, “We do it chapter by chapter. Just like a novelist, you write one chapter, scribble your next one, and so on.
Release day for John Wick is March 24, 2023.
