Reeves appeared during the Lionsgate show at the show’s annual trade show, and was greeted with raucous applause and chants of “You’re the man!” of attendance.
The next installment reunites Reeves with acrobat-turned-director Chad Stahelski. Lionsgate has high hopes forJohn Wick: Chapter 4Considering that every chapter in the franchise has outperformed its predecessors. The original “John Wick” grossed $86 million worldwide in 2014 followed by $171.5 million for “John Wick: Chapter 2” in 2017 and $327.3 million. For the movie “John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum” in 2019.
In the footage shown, Wick is on a perpetual revenge ride – this time in decidedly lone ninja style – and is seen punching a wooden pole so much that his knuckles bleed while co-star Laurence Fishburne plays the noise man.
“I want you to find peace, John,” he said loudly off-screen as Reeves montage plays as he kills his enemies, “But the only way this leads to him is death.”
In the trailer’s touching final moments, Reeves deals with two bad guys in the lobby of an art gallery – and brutalizes them through nunchucks with relentless hilarious action.
Joining Reeves in “John Wick: Chapter 4” is Lance Redick, Reina Sawayama, Donnie Yen, Shamir Anderson, Bill Skarsgård, Hiroyuki Sanada, Scott Adkins and Clancy Brown. The mainstay of the franchise Ian McShane returns to Winston, the manager of the Continental Hotel. Among those who did not return to the franchise was Halle Berry, who first appeared as Sophia in “Chapter 3.”
Perry said, “Sofia is not in the upcoming ‘John Wick’ movie IGN Earlier this year, though, the character might get her own movie. “There could be Sophia…her own movie. So she might not be in ‘John Wick,’ but she might be doing her own thing.”
Stahelski revealed before he began filming “John Wick: Chapter 4” that he was worried about how the crazy stunts would outperform “Chapter 3,” which included a one-piece thriller depicting a samurai on horseback.
John Wick: Chapter 4 will be released in theaters on May 23, 2023.
