Just a couple of days after teasing the trailer to John Wick: Chapter 2, the crew at Lionsgate has come through with the first official trailer. And it looks to be even more explosive—and bloodier—then the first.
The preview was unveiled at New York Comic-Con on Saturday, during a panel discussion hosted by the production studio. Though the trailer doesn’t give any clear plot points, Lionsgate did include a brief explanation of what will go down. Here’s the gist: Hitman John Wick, played by Keanu Reeves, comes out of retirement after one of his former colleagues attempts to take over “a shadowy international assassins' guild […] John travels to Rome where he squares off against some of the world’s deadliest killers."
Chad Stahelski returns as the director, while John Leguizamo, Ian McShane, and Lance Reddick reprise their roles as Wick allies. Common, who will play "a head of security for a female crime lord," joins the sequel’s cast, along with Laurence Fishburne, Ruby Rose, Franco Nero, and Peter Stormare.
“We had the opportunity [to make the sequel] because of you,” Reeves told the Comic-Con crowd, “so to be able to tell the next chapter, for me it’s really exciting to be here with you […] I really liked putting this suit back on and getting to do what John Wick gets to do.”
You can watch the first official trailer for John Wick: Chapter 2 above. The film is set to open in theaters on Feb. 10, 2017.
