Keanu is cloaked in darkness, and an eerie blue glow in this dark teaser poster for his upcoming action-thriller John Wick.
The premise for John Wick is simple. A bunch of toughs (one of them being
Theon Freaking Greyjoy Game of Thrones’ Alfie Allen) attack a loner and his kill his dog–a dog that was given to him by his dying wife (the feels!), and incur the wrath of the most prolific assassins to ever do it. Guns and puppies… It’s the American way.
Seriously, it looks really good. Its got this dark, Charles Bronson-like quality to it that’s reminiscent of vintage Michael Bay in the first Bad Boys film. Actually, John Wick is pretty reminiscent of a lot of action movies from the 90s.
Here’s the first official trailer in case you missed it:
An ex-hitman comes out of retirement to track down the gangsters that took everything from him. With New York City as his bullet-riddled playground, JOHN WICK (Keanu Reeves) is a fresh and stylized take on the “assassin genre”. Cast: Keanu Reeves, Michael Nyqvist, Alfie Allen, Adrianne Palicki, Dean Winters, Bridget Moynahan, with Ian McShane, John Leguizamo, and Willem Dafoe Directed by: David Leitch and Chad Stahelski Written by: Derek Kolstad Produced by: Basil Iwanyk
Release Date: October 24, 2014
Keanu is looking mighty fine, if I do say so myself.
