If you’re a fan of breathtaking action movies, you’re probably counting down the days until John Wick 4 comes out – and the film’s newest trailer is sure to increase that excitement to 11.
Arriving just a few months after a few brief sneak peek images (opens in new tab) teased the return of Keanu Reeves’ eponymous killer, the first full trailer for John Wick 4 puts the series’ choreographic style (and its fondness for bullet-laden carnage) front and center. Check it out below:
Have you caught your breath yet? Neither do we. Either way, John Wick 4 is scheduled to be released in theaters on March 24, 2023, so we have a few months to wait until Hollywood’s favorite action hero returns to screens.
As for the film’s plot, John Wick 4 looks set to tread familiar ground. Lionsgate’s official synopsis reads as follows: “John Wick (Keanu Reeves) faces his deadliest adversaries yet in the upcoming fourth installment of the series. With the price on his head increasing, Wick takes his fight against the global High Table as he seeks out the most powerful players in the underworld, from New York to Paris, Osaka and Berlin.”
In other words, John Wick 4 will dance to the tunes of its predecessors – which is by no means a bad thing, in our book. Series director Chad Stahelski returns to the helm, while Ian McShane, Laurence Fishburne and Lance Reddick will reprise their roles as Winston, The Bowery King and Charon, respectively.
Newcomers to John Wick 4 include martial arts legends Donnie Yen (Ip Man) and Hiroyuki Sanada (Mortal Kombat), while Bill Skarsgård (It), Shamier Anderson (Invasion) and singer-songwriter Rina Sawayama are also joining the ranks. joining in the fun.
From the looks of it, it will be a two-horse race between John Wick 4 and Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning: Part One (which has an equally chaotic first trailer) for the title of best action movie of 2023.
