John Wick: Chapter 2, the sequel to the excellent 2014 action flick, has another trailer, one you should probably watch if you haven’t already.
I love that they made a point of showing the dog outside with John after his house blows up (I assume that’s his home from the first film). That right there shows they absolutely know what they’re doing with this sequel. More John Wick, I really can’t say no to that.
Chad Stahelski directed John Wick: Chapter 2 while Derek Kolstad wrote it. Starring in the film are Keanu Reeves, Laurence Fishburne, Ian McShane, Ruby Rose, John Leguizamo, Peter Stormare, Common and many others.
John Wick: Chapter 2 opens February 10th 2017, so only 7 weeks away. The first John Wick wasn’t actually that big at the box office, raising only $86 million worldwide. For its $20 million budget that was obviously enough. But what really got the sequel green lit was the overwhelmingly positive reception it got. With that release window Lionsgate is probably hoping Chapter 2 can break out and turn into a hit franchise. We all want that but February 10th might not make it as easier as the studio might be hoping. Also opening that day are Fifty Shades Darker and The LEGO Batman Movie, two arguably higher profile movies. Please make sure you pick the right movie (no really, go watch John Wick: Chapter 2).
