In the final trailer for John Wick: Chapter 4, there's no lore, just combat. Keanu Reeves once again battles his way across the globe, using whatever is at his disposal. Pistols, axes, swords and his own mighty fists will take down hundreds of bad guys out to kill him.
In addition to the intense action, we get glimpses at returning faces like Laurence Fishburne, Ian McShane and Lance Reddick. Reeves also teams up with martial arts heroes like Donnie Yen and Hiroyuki Sanada, while facing off against new adversaries including singer Rina Sawayama and stunt legend Scott Adkins (unrecognizable in a fat suit and gold teeth). And yes, there's even a new dog for John to bond with. And keep an eye out for references to The Warriors and The Matrix.
John Wick: Chapter 4 arrives in theaters March 24.
About Kip Mooney
Like many film critics born during and after the 1980s, my hero is Roger Ebert. The man was already the best critic in the nation when he won the Pulitzer in 1975, but his indomitable spirit during and after his recent battle with cancer keeps me coming back to read not only his reviews but his insightful commentary on the everyday. But enough about a guy you know a lot about.
I knew I was going to be a film critic—some would say a snob—in middle school, when I had to voraciously defend my position that The Royal Tenenbaums was only a million times better than Adam Sandler’s remake of Mr. Deeds. From then on, I would seek out Wes Anderson’s films and avoid Sandler’s like the plague.
Still, I like to think of myself as a populist, and I’ll be just as likely to see the next superhero movie as the next Sundance sensation. The thing I most deplore in a movie is laziness. I’d much rather see movies with big ambitions try and fail than movies with no ambitions succeed at simply existing. I’m also a big advocate of fun-bad movies like The Room and most of Nicolas Cage’s work.
In the past, I’ve written for The Dallas Morning News and the North Texas Daily, which I edited for a semester. I also contributed to Dallas-based Pegasus News, which in the circle of life, is now part of The Dallas Morning News, where I got my big break in 2007. Eventually, I’d love to write and talk about film full-time, but until that’s a viable career option, I work as an auditor for Wells Fargo.
I hope to one day meet my hero, go to the Toronto International Film Festival, and compete on Jeopardy. Until then, I’m excited to share my love of film with you.
