Knives, fists, pistols, nunchucks, swords, vehicles, books, pens and even a horse have all served as deadly weapons for John Wick from the action series of the same name starring Keanu Reeves. The ex-contract killer known as Baba Yaga is often just as creative in his learned craft as horror legend Freddy Krüger or the curse from Final Destination. No wonder the bosses of the underworld tremble as soon as anyone says their name. Also in chapter four, the on March 23, 2023 is to come to US cinemas, Wick will have to conjure up one or two tricks up his sleeve when eliminating his numerous enemies in order to send the adversaries into the eternal hunting grounds – much to the delight of the audience.
Despite the wafer-thin plots, film fans all over the world are enthusiastic about the action ballet and its iconic leading actor. The series’ longevity is not only due to Reeve’s charm and the fantastically choreographed fight scenes of his ex-stunt double Chad Stahelski, but also to the coolness of its cinematic universe. In the John Wick films, not only is everything a potential killing tool, but every character, from the garbage collector to the librarian to the world’s richest CEO might be a secret ninja.
Wick’s allies include his mentor Winston (Ian McShane), the well-connected Bowery King (Laurence Fishburne) and dog trainer Sofia (Hall Berry), who doesn’t appear in the trailer herself, but her pets do. The martial arts and screen superstars await us as newcomers Donnie Yen and Scott Adkins such as Clancy Brown (highlanders) Bill Scarsgard (It), Natalia Tena (Harry Potter, Game of Thrones) and musician Rina Sawayama in her film debut. However, the trailer not only shows the illustrious cast of characters, but also numerous locations for the duel around the world.
