John Wick was one of the most pleasant movie surprises to come out of the last few years. Released in 2014, the movie’s frenetic action combined with Keanu Reeves turning in one of his best performances as the titular Wick made for a thoroughly enjoyable flick. In the new trailer for John Wick: Chapter 2, it looks like all of that has been turned up to 11.
This time around, Wick finds himself in Rome with a rather large contract out on his head. What follows is Wick unleashing all forms of gunplay and general hitman skills against not only a veritable army of mooks sent his way, but other world-class assassins as well. Both Common and Ruby Rose (who with this and the third xXx film seems to be fully stepping into the action world) will appear, along with Laurence Fishburne chewing scenery in the absolute best way.
Derek Kolstad and Chad Stahelski are back as writer and director, respectively, so here’s to hoping John Wick: Chapter 2 operates on the same level as the first one. You can catch the film in theaters on February 10, 2017.
