The first trailer for the new film JOHN WICK starring Keanu Reeves debuted this week. The film is about a an ex-hitman who comes out of retirement to track down, by any means necessary, the gangsters that took everything from him. With New York city as the backdrop, looking as gritty as ever, the intensity shown in the trailer keeps viewers hopeful for an exciting new “assassin genre” film. The trailer starts with Wick (Reeves) in bed with is beagle puppy who he then takes for an intense joyride in a bad ass mustang, cut to what looks like a pup-napping or maybe even worse? The dog lover in me can’t bear to think of it! He may be an ex-hitman but don’t mess with the man’s dog because this seems to be the last straw and sends John Wick on a mission to get revenge no matter what.
From the producer of “THE TOWN” JOHN WICK looks to be an action packed, bullet riddled, joy ride full of revenge, and let’s just say there is no better motivator than revenge. Keanu looks more comfortable in this role than in the past few films he has starred in and if you are like, me praying for a triumphant Reeves return, this film should get your blood pumping. In true Keanu Reeves fashion the line “Yea, I’m thinkin I’m back” is enough to have action fans and Reeves fans ready to get in line for this one. JOHN WICK opens in theatres everywhere on October 24, 2014.
