Yeah, that’ll make everyone wanna come see your movie. Kill a dog! Bang a gong! Eat some fuckin’ popcorn! It’ll be a laugh riot. Maybe I’m just shocked that they implied the killing of a puppy (holy shit, right?), but there’s something about the trailer for John Wick that feels ballsy and alluring. It looks fun and pretty and trashy, and is packing a hell of a cast. Willem Dafoe, Ian McShane, Jason Isaacs, Alfie Allen, John Leguizamo, Michael Nyqvist, and Lance Reddick make for a hell of a supporting team behind angry Keanu. Plus, it features the biggest garage door I’ve ever seen that’s not at a NASA facility.
This is the kind of thing I should be rolling my eyes at, but I’ll be damned if this doesn’t look like a fun time at the movies. The film is the directorial debut of stunt coordinator Chad Stahelski, who worked with Keanu on The Matrix Trilogy and Man of Tai Chi. Keanu will rampage into US cinemas on October 24.
