He lost everything, including the dog that was a gift from his dying wife and now JOHN WICK (Keanu Reeves) is on a mission to get revenge. From the producer of THE TOWN, directed by Chad Stahelski with a script penned by Derek Kolstad JOHN WICK debuted at Fantastic Fest and received rave reviews. Check out the incredible new poster and final trailer that was debuted today on Reddit along with a Q & A that featured the film’s director and veteran stunt-man David Leitch.
When asked about the mood of the film Leitch and Stahelski described it as:
“Gun-fu and ‘film noir fun'”
The two also said that Reeves was an “An absolute pleasure” to work with and that the reason JOHN WICK’s action looks so different is because Reeves did about 95% of the stunt work himself. Leitch said Reeves did 99% of his own stunts and Stahelski followed up with:
“Well, 95%. For the most part, the fighting, the gun play and car driving. His driving is as good as some stunt drivers. His gun work is exceptional. The more an actor does, the less he’s doubled, it changes your editing style, and shooting style.”
In most of the early reviews it has been said one of the strongest and most surprising elements of the film was the world building and Stahelski responded to that by saying that he loves world building and it comes from his background with the Wachowski’s.
If this final trailer for JOHN Wick isn’t enough to get you excited than you may want to check your pulse, I mean when someone says, “I once saw him kill three men with a pencil” you know you are going to get an explosive film. JOHN WICK will be in theaters and IMAX on OCTOBER 24, 2014. Keanu Reeves fans get ready because I’m thinking, he’s back!
