New ‘John Wick 2’ Images Reveal Keanu Reeves’ Allies and Enemies

     October 12, 2016


We’ve got less than four months to go before Keanu Reeves returns as the title character in John Wick: Chapter 2. In that time, we expect to see much more in the way of marketing for the action-packed sequel to writer Derek Kolstad and director Chad Stahelski‘s thriller about the titular former hitman. But today, courtesy of Lionsgate, we have a look at the supporting cast set to assist or antagonize John Wick.

These new images feature Ruby Rose as the mute Ares, Laurence Fishburne as The Bowery King (who has a fondness for pigeons, it seems), and Riccardo Scarmarcio (Burnt) as Santino D’Antonio. We’ve seen these characters (briefly) in action in the recently released trailer, but these still images give a good sense of their style, something that’s in no short supply in John Wick: Chapter 2.

The film also stars John Leguizamo, Lance Reddick, Bridget Moynahan, Ian McShaneCommon, and Peter StormareJohn Wick: Chapter 2 opens in theaters on February 10, 2017.  Click here for our recap of the film’s New York Comic-Con panel.

Here’s the official synopsis for John Wick: Chapter 2:

Keanu Reeves returns in the sequel to the 2014 hit as legendary hitman John Wick who is forced to back out of retirement by a former associate plotting to seize control of a shadowy international assassins’ guild.

Lionsgate’s “John Wick: Chapter 2” arriving in theaters on February 10, 2017.
