Revenge is not the healthiest motivator in the world, but it did kick off one of the best action movie franchises in history. If world-class assassin John Wick (Keanu Reeves) hadn't decided to get revenge on the horrible monsters who killed his Beagle puppy back in 2014, audiences wouldn't have gotten to see him kick bad guy behinds for three incredible movies, and that would be a crying shame. Now, nine years later, it's time to watch Wick whoop butts once more in "John Wick: Chapter 4," and there's a brand new trailer that debuted during the Super Bowl for everyone who likes to watch men crash into one another at high velocity. Action movie fans and football fans, all united by the glory that is Keanu Reeves on a mission.
The latest "John Wick" flick comes to us courtesy of franchise creator Chad Stahelski and will introduce Bill Skarsgård as a new villain who might be even scarier than Pennywise the Dancing Clown from "It," since he wields the power of bureaucracy instead of being a giant space spider. I'll take extraterrestrial arachnids over red tape any day of the week, so Wick has his work cut out for him. We don't have long to wait to see Wick go wild, either, as "John Wick: Chapter 4" will be blasting its way into theaters on March 24, 2023.
Watch The Trailer For John Wick: Chapter 4
Few franchises have the track record of "John Wick." There hasn't been a single bad film in the series yet, and each one has upped the ante on insane action sequences and some truly creative worldbuilding. The fourth film in the franchise will follow up after the events of "John Wick: Parabellum," which ended with Wick betrayed by his friend Winston (Ian McShane) and teaming up with the Bowery King (Laurence Fishburne). The two of them are probably going to try and take out the High Table, an incredibly powerful group of crime lords that can give even the world's coolest assassin a run for his money.
"John Wick: Chapter 4" is a butt-numbing two-and-a-half hours, but if there's anyone who can make a long movie worth it, it's Mr. Wick. There is also apparently a butt-kicking doggy co-star that's in the movie enough that the stuntmen had to train with the dogs who played her for months ahead of time, doing all kinds of bite-work, wrestling, and occasionally giving the good pups some scritches. Look, if you're not gonna see Wick for Reeves, the slick cinematography, the killer action sequences, or the weird and wonderful worldbuilding, maybe the cinematic canines can draw you in.
