New Delhi: The hit-man is back. In the sequel to the 2014 sleeper hit, Keanu Reeves returns as John Wick. In the trailer that was launched on Saturday at the fan-studded New York Comic Con, the assassin may look a bit older and wiser, but he's equally lethal. And guess what, he's back from retirement and even has a little pooch this time.
- John Wick was released in 2014
- The film about a hitman became a sleeper hit that year
- The sequel releases in 2017
Even though the trailer doesn't give much away about the story, this action-packed and bloody-to-the-core first look at Chapter 2 takes John from New York to Rome. The basic aim, however, remains the same, some of the 'world's deadliest killers' are going to now be the victims.
Apart from Keanu who returns from the original, we have staples Ian McShane, Lance Reddick and John Legiozamo, while actress Ruby Rose, and stars Franco Nero, Peter Stormare and Laurence Fishburne are new to the franchise. Rapper Common makes a smart special appearance.
So, are you ready for John Wick to 'kill them all?' Watch the film on February 10, 2017 to find out.
