Keanu Reeves Says He's Going To 'Kill Them All' In First Footage For John Wick 4
| Last updated
Keanu Reeves is up to his old tricks once again, kicking a** and taking names in a new teaser for John Wick 4.
According to Variety, a teaser for latest instalment on the action franchise dropped at CinemaCon, prompting massive cheers from the audience, who clapped, and chanted 'you're the man'.
The latest chapter, shown at the Lionsgate presentation of the annual trade show, features cool-as-a-cucumber Wick (Reeves) absolutely annihilating everyone on his mission of perpetual revenge.
Although this time, Wick gives off a dark, lone ninja vibe which the audience seemed to lap up.
In the footage screened in Las Vegas, Wick could reportedly be seen punching a wooden post until his knuckles bled while co-star Laurence Fishburne could be heard spurring on his co-star.
Off-screen, audiences heard a booming voice, telling Wick: “I want you to find peace, John, but the only path this leads to is death.”
He's also heard saying: "Abandon all hope, you who are about to listen. You are now in the presence of the motherf**king king!"
In the clip, Reeves' character says he's 'going to kill them all', and honestly, we have no doubt about that.
In the final scenes of the intense trailer, Wick could be seen brutalising his enemies in an art gallery in a relentless merry-go-round motion of nunchucks and brutality.
Aside from Reeves, a stellar cast of actors has signed on, including Lance Reddick, Rina Sawayama, Donnie Yen, Shamier Anderson, Bill Skarsgård, Hiroyuki Sanada, Scott Adkins and Clancy Brown.
Plus, audiences can count on being taken back to the Continental Hotel, with Ian McShane returning as its manager, Winston.
Halle Berry will not reprise her role as Sofia from Chapter 3.
Although Berry will be missed, the film is still sure to be an absolute banger with stuntman-turned-director Chad Stahelski at the helm once again.
Stahelski revealed before filming started he was anxious about how the next film would top the high-octane action seen in Chapter 3, which included one bonkers scene featuring a samurai fight on horseback through the city streets.
"There’s been a couple days where I’ve decided to do number four and I’ve woken up in a cold sweat going, ‘Horses! How do I beat horses?’ I have no f**king idea to tell you the truth,” the director told Collider.
“I have a lot of really cool ideas for the next one that I think are different and shocking and fun and unique.
"How to do them, I have no f**kin’ idea right now. I’m still figuring it out.”
Despite Stahelski's concerns, there is little doubt that the fourth John Wick instalment will impress.
Each film has grossed higher than the last, so there's no doubt Lionsgate are betting their money on the right horse.
John Wick: Chapter 4 will hit cinemas on March 24, 2023.
