If I’m watching this trailer for Keanu Reeves’ hitman thriller “John Wick” correctly, he was a retired hitman living a peaceful existence, but is forced out of retirement after some scumbags led by the “Game of Thrones” guy that got his wiener cut off shot his dog and stole his car.
Or as the official synopsis puts it: “An ex-hitman comes out of retirement to track down the gangsters that took everything from him.”
That “everything” being his dog and his car.
I’m pretty sure that’s the whole premise of the movie. Of course, once you see the trailer you sort of get that director Chad Stahelski is going for a sort of humor/black comedy/action movie here. I could be wrong, of course. Who knows these days with a Keanu Reeves movie?
The film co-stars Michael Nyqvist, Alfie Allen, Adrianne Palicki, Dean Winters, Bridget Moynahan, Ian McShane, John Leguizmo and Willem Dafoe and opens this October 24th.
