John Wick

"It's not what you did son. It's who you did it to." Keanu Reeves is back in badass mode in the first trailer for John Wick, the action thriller debuting at Fantastic Fest this month. "Game of Thrones" star Alfie Allen steps over his bounds as the son of a crime boss by stealing the title character's car and dog, the latter left to him by his dead girlfriend, and now Mr. Wick wants his stuff back. But he also seems hellbent on teaching them a lesson too. This looks pretty slick and fun as hell, and there's plenty of room for supporting stars like John Leguizamo and Adrianne Palicki to be badasses alongside Reeves too. Watch below!

Here's the first trailer for David Leitch & Chad Stahelski's John Wick from IGN:

John Wick is directed by David Leitch & Chad Stahelski and written by Derek Kolstad (The Package, One in the Chamber). Keanu Reeves plays the title character, an ex-hitman on an adrenaline-fueled path to revenge and redemption when he is forced back into action by a sadistic young thug and must hunt down his adversaries with the skill and ruthlessness that made him an underworld legend. Bridget Moynahan, Michael Nyqvist, Jason Isaacs, Willem Dafoe, Lance Reddick, Alfie Allen, Adrianne Palicki and Dean Winters also star in the film which is slated to hit theaters this fall on October 24th. Anyone interested?

Looked better then I expected, Keanu wasn't terrible either... If the movie is R rated I'm in 🙂

Enola on Sep 12, 2014


Looks like Keanu is back.

Rock n Rollllll on Sep 12, 2014


Oh hello Keanu and welcome back!

Bree on Sep 12, 2014


I can't believed you guys are getting suckered in this crap fest so easily, so everyone hate to inform yah but the trailer will be better than the movie. Don't say I didn't warn yah about this first hand. The only thing this movie will do to Keanu is make him stay on the Hollywood D-List where he has been the past few years.

Stephen Ritchie on Sep 12, 2014


say yah one more time

that's cool, YOU'RE the one who told us. thanks dude!! your sole opinion is the best!

ColtNoir on Sep 12, 2014


Looks like the internet is working again in your mom's basement.. good for you dude !!

Tester on Sep 12, 2014


See dude, another negative comment (look at the Destiny/GOTG article). Dude, do us all a favor and just dismiss yourself from this website.

JBrotsis on Sep 15, 2014


I'm in!!

Qrious on Sep 12, 2014


I expected another generic action movie, and while it is not without its cliches I say this looks nothing short of BADASS

Jon Odishaw on Sep 12, 2014


It looks interesting, but the motivation for John Wick is a bit weird

HarryFiddleSticks on Sep 12, 2014


I take it youve never been close with a dog, thats fine, but I have. Let me tell you when they die it rips your heart out. compound that with a dead wife and nothing left to love and you got yourself a recipe for revenge.

Jon Odishaw on Sep 12, 2014


I was maybe thinking what Harry was - that it seems like their last idea of how to get their retired killer character back into killing, after the other movies took all of the other ideas. "What if they killed his dog? People like dogs. Not poignant enough? What if his dead wife left him the dog?"

OfficialJab on Sep 12, 2014


So you would kill the people that killed your dog and stole your car? But you got me, Jon. I hate dogs.... But seriously, I can't decide if the motivation is original or weird.

HarryFiddleSticks on Sep 12, 2014


Why not both?

Jon Odishaw on Sep 12, 2014


I think we've found an agreement there

HarryFiddleSticks on Sep 13, 2014


"Straw that broke the camel's back" is a thing.

DAVIDPD on Sep 12, 2014


feels like it could be a Punisher story..I'm in

ColtNoir on Sep 12, 2014


First I was kinda hesitant, but then... HOLY SHIT.

Nielsen700 on Sep 12, 2014


My eyebrows have never risen that far before.

Josef Saltpeppaketchup Woods on Sep 12, 2014


Why does the font look EXACTLY like TMNT?

ion677 on Sep 12, 2014


If that camera is nice and steady with fluid motion during the fighting and action like this footage is hinting at I'm definitely seeing it. I still cringe a tiny bit at how Keanu deliver's his lines. Sounds like he has trouble getting the words out sometimes. The blue look reminds me a bit of Welcome to the Punch. It's also very dark and sleak looking which I'm really digging. I didn't realize that was Adrianne Palicki, because it's so dark. All in all, I'm excited for this.

NathanDewey on Sep 12, 2014

25 much...awesome.

Xerxexx on Sep 12, 2014


Wow. Soo excited. Keanu, this looks like a great one. Fantastic.

Regina ARBY Brown on Sep 12, 2014


"Where'd you get that car?" LOL...That was EPICly bad.

DAVIDPD on Sep 12, 2014


Yeah... I'm in!!

cg on Sep 12, 2014


Looks good.Will see it.

Maxim Karagogov on Sep 12, 2014


This trailer just told us the whole film. The only twist will be that his wife, who isn't dead was actually playing a long con and told the idiot son of the crimeboss to go after that car to get him to re-surface so that all of the other hitmen/women can go after him. I though Mr Reeves was trying to do more interesting films now that he is old? This just looks like they couldn't afford Jason Statham.

Go_Gal on Sep 13, 2014


Hahahaha, I totally agree about Statham...

shiboleth on Sep 13, 2014


These are the types of roles I like Keanu Reeves in. No fuss no need for acting. Just badass Neo/John Constantine type character. He always manages to pull those off. Looking forward to this one.

TK on Sep 13, 2014


Not that he has many personas to choose from but neo and Constantine are the two that jumped to mind for me too.

Jon Odishaw on Sep 13, 2014


No way.......the first thing to me will always be Point Break..........well that and Bill & Teds :p

Rock n Rollllll on Sep 15, 2014


excellent addition, RnR. Neo/Constantine/Johnny Utah are def my fav roles by KR.

Avi Zimmerman on Sep 15, 2014


euh want to see it but the reason why he must go on a rampage is epicly stupid! I thought this can't be true in a trailer! But it kicks ass so I am in!

Avi on Sep 13, 2014


i mean, it's obviously a ridiculously bad movie but I'll watch it without any hesitation...

shiboleth on Sep 13, 2014


Neo's back baby! Can't wait!!!!

SkyNet300 on Sep 14, 2014


Great looking action scenes. Why doesn't he star in more solo martial arts films?? He's good at it!

SkyNet300 on Sep 14, 2014


Looks like fun!

Bill on Sep 14, 2014


just as Craig answered I'm startled that a stay at home mom able to get paid $5876 in one month on the computer . visit site

LoriRWhorton on Sep 15, 2014


Eat shit.

Jamie Holmes on Sep 15, 2014


I gotta admit, this actually looked pretty good. Haven't seen Keanu in anything LONG time.

John Doe on Sep 15, 2014


I'd rather see this than The Equalizer.

JBrotsis on Sep 15, 2014


Silly plot, but the action looks great

AJ on Sep 17, 2014


Looks pretty fun. Also killing the dog by punching it in the face (trailer gave me that impression) made me laugh.

Mihkel on Sep 17, 2014


That looks like fun.
