Lionsgate has released a new John Wick trailer for what’s shaping up to be one of the biggest out-of-nowhere surprises of the year. Just a month or so ago, I didn’t even know this movie existed. Then Lionsgate acquired the revenge thriller off of positive buzz and released a fantastic debut trailer that teased a fun, slick, and highly quotable actioner complete with a swell-looking lead performance by Keanu Reeves. The actor plays a former hitman who comes out of retirement to track down the gangsters who took everything from him, and this new, final trailer offers up another promising look at the film. Yeah, I’m thinking I’m gonna see this.
Watch the new John Wick trailer after the jump, along with some new images. Directed by veteran stunt coordinator Chad Stahelski, the film also stars Adrianne Palicki, Willem Dafoe, Bridget Moynahan, Ian McShane, Jason Isaacs, Alfie Allen, Lance Reddick, John Leguizamo, Dean Winters, and Michael Nyqvist. John Wick opens in theaters on October 24th.
Here’s the official synopsis for John Wick:
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”.
