John Wick was a celebrated love letter to martial arts films, and judging from the trailers and recently released promotional material, its highly anticipated sequel is likely to be cut from the same cloth.
In this new Yahoo Movies clip from John Wick: Chapter 2, we’re not treated to a blazing action sequence, but one filled with tension all the same. Keanu Reeves and Lance Reddick shine as Wick and Charon, respectively, as the assassin himself makes his way into the lobby of the deadly Continental Hotel, seeking to speak to the manager. A mundane scene from real life if ever there was one, you might say, although generally the customer in question doesn’t look so haggard and the concierge so unnerved. Wick also brings along his pitbull to the hotel, who is then instructed to wait in the lobby, presumably so he won’t catch a bullet or a blade in whatever violence is undoubtedly about to be unleashed next.
Watch the clip below:
