The trailer of the latest installment in the successful John Wick franchise starring Keanu Reeves in the titular role was dropped last night. John Wick Chapter 4 sees Keanu as the suit-clad assassin in another action-packed film. However, this time around John is not out to avenge someone but to fight for his freedom as he faces a new enemy in the form of Donnie Yen.
The trailer sees Keanu entering a deadly duel as he is pitted against a new enemy with powerful alliances across the globe. In the opening scene of the trailer, we see Donnie Yen's character telling Reeves, “John Wick, ‘You are going to die.’” But our hero is up for the challenge as we are introduced to ‘new management’ in the criminal underworld headed by Bill Skarsgard. Ian McShane’s character Winston also appears in the trailer who tells Wick that if he beats Bill in single combat he can earn his freedom.
