The Birth.Movies.Death. staff is impossibly excited for the arrival of Chad Staheliski's John Wick: Chapter 2, and the good news is we won't have to wait much longer: the film hits theaters on February 10th. That's right around the corner!
That wait is totally doable, but if your John Wick itch needs an immediate scratch, you may find some relief in this just-released clip from Staheliski's sequel. It's light on headshots, but makes up for it with a mini Matrix reunion and some A+ tough guy dialogue.
Check it out.
For those of you who haven't been paying attention, here's what we can expect from John Wick: Chapter 2:
Keanu Reeves returns in the sequel to the 2014 hit as legendary hitman John Wick who is forced to back out of retirement by a former associate plotting to seize control of a shadowy international assassins’ guild. Bound by a blood oath to help him, John travels to Rome where he squares off against some of the world’s deadliest killers.
Personally, I'm hoping John Wick: Chapter 2 goes a bit further into this world's bizarro mythology, which was largely relegated to the margins in the first film (remember those gold tokens? I have an irrational need to know a lot more about those things), and that it doubles the amount of headshots from the first John Wick. Oh, and that no dogs get killed. That would be super sweet.
We'll find out when John Wick: Chapter 2 hits theaters in a few weeks. You guys planning to revisit the original beforehand or what? That's on my to-do list this weekend.
