My love for John Wick comes from the title character’s determination to get justice for his dog’s killer. And when I say justice, I mean deadly revenge since he was a retired assassin whom some in his profession thought of as the Boogie Man. Sure enough, the action flick starring Keanu Reeves was a hit with audiences, which of course meant that Lionsgate had to put John Wick: Chapter 2 into production. Luckily, he won’t be motivated to kill because his new dog died, but a former associate seems to bring him out of hiding when he tries to gain control of an assassins’ guild.
Now that Wick has a reason to come out of retirement, again, he will have to do it in style. Check out the latest teaser poster for the film below.
The newly released teaser poster doesn’t offer us much in terms of plot, aside from the fact that John Wick will be doing his killing in a sharp tailor-made suit. I mean, if you’re going to do a high-priced kill, you might as well dress like a professional. And make sure everything is in black.
Just in case the poster wasn’t enough of eye candy, those attending the New York Comic-Con will be able to get an early look at the film as there will be a panel. Because this is a Lionsgate film, the John Wick portion of the panel will be held in conjunction with Power Rangers. So depending on the timing, you might have to sit through that in order to see John Wick: Chapter 2. There is no mention of who will be attending the latter, although there is a good chance that director Chad Stahelski and Keanu Reeves will be there.
Here is the information you’ll need just in case you want to see either of the film’s panels at NYCC:
Lionsgate presents a preview of two of 2017 most highly anticipated films, SABAN’S POWER RANGERS and JOHN WICK: CHAPTER 2 – – A must see for all, this panel will provide a look at the epic action-adventure, SABAN’S POWER RANGER’S followed by a Q&A with the cast and filmmakers bringing this new motion picture to the big screen.
