"Revenge will be suite. The bar will be raised." Are you ready to check in? NBC's Peacock has revealed the first look teaser trailer for another John Wick spin-off series, this one titled The Continental. There's also another movie in the works titled Ballerina, focusing on a female Wick - starring Ana de Armas. This action series is about the famous hotel (the one in Lower Manhattan in NYC), taking us back to the 1970s when it all began. The Continental: From the World of John Wick (the full title) tells the background story of how Winston Scott came to his position as proprietor of The Continental hotel in the 1970s and establishes it as a safe haven for assassins where no business may take place. It explores real-world events, including the Great Garbage Strike and the American Mafia's rise to economic power. Colin Woodell stars as Winston Scott (played by Ian McShane in the films), with a cast featuring Mel Gibson, Hubert Point-Du Jour, Jessica Allain, Mishel Prada, Nhung Kate, Ben Robson, and Peter Greene. It'll be streaming in September after the summer. In the meantime, go see John Wick 4 in theaters while you still can - it kicks serious ass.
