“John Wick: Chapter 4” Trailer Finds Keanu Reeves Back in Black
Keanu Reeves returns as the unkillable John Wick, and this time, he’s facing Pennywise the Clown from It.
Okay, not exactly, but Wick’s rival in John Wick: Chapter 4 is Bill Skarsgård’s villain Marquis de Gramont. Skarsgård is a top-notch performer, and he’s proven he knows how to crush a villain role; he was absolutely terrifying as Pennywise in director Andy Muschietti’s It films. Lionsgate has revealed the official trailer for Chapter 4, and the franchise hasn’t lost a step in the insane stunt sequences department. Reeves is, of course, a huge part of that, deploying the gun-fu style he’s been honing for years now. Director Chad Stahelski, who returns to shepherd the mayhem, is a crucial component of the franchise’s success.
Wick can do it all, with any weapon, but he appears to be facing a formidable challenge in Marquis de Gramont, who offers Wick his freedom, but only if he can defeat foes from across the world who appears as skilled in the deadly arts as he is. It’s single combat, folks, and the set-up lets Wick prep for the big match like a boxer preparing for his title fight. You want nunchucks, car chases, battles on horseback, fighting with axes and swords? You’ve got it.
Chapter 4 was written by Shay Hatten and Michael Finch. Joining Reeves and Skarsgård are Ian McShane, Donnie Yen, Laurence Fishburne, Hiroyuki Sanada, Shamier Anderson, Lance Reddick, Rina Sawayama, and Scott Adkins.
Check out the trailer below. John Wick: Chapter 4 premieres on March 24.
