John Wick is one of those movies that is so simple in design yet so sophisticated in delivery. Usually “more of the same” sequels fail but, if the new TV spots and promo pics are anything to go by, more of the same might be just right for Chapter 2. Check out the two new TV spots, both titled “I’m Back” (Eminem should sue) below, along with six new stills from the upcoming gun-fu action movie.
Keanu Reeves returns as the titular character, a feared hitman known in the stylized underworld of criminals and assassions as “Baba Yaga” aka “the Boogeyman.” He’s also a retired widower who just wants to be left alone. Of course, his past (and audiences) can’t allow that, leading to this sequel. After avenging his dog’s death in bloody fashion in the first film, Wick is called on by an old associate (Riccardo Scarmarcio) to fulfill a blood debt by taking on the shadowy organization run by Winston (Ian McShane, also returning), of which he used to be a part. John Leguizamo, Bridget Moynihan, Lance Reddick, Thomas Sadoski, and David Patrick Kelly are back in the cast, with Common, Ruby Rose, Peter Stormare, and Laurence Fishburne as notable additions.
Here are the six stills below in all their glory.
