A brand new poster has been revealed for John Wick: Chapter 2, the follow-up to 2014 violent revenge thriller John Wick. Keanu Reeves returns in the title role as the ex-hitman hell-bent on vengeance, which comes just over two years after the original.
The new poster is more stripped back than other images released so far, with a shadowy close-up on Wick’s profile, and a fuse-like spark running along his chest. The suggestion being: the fuse is lit, watch him blow. Looks like we’re in for some explosive stuff. You can see the new poster below.
The first film saw Wick tracking down the Russian gang that stole his vintage Mustang and killed the adorable puppy we all fell in love with – a present from his dead wife.
Plot details released for the sequel don’t reveal too much, but we do know that John Wick is back, and his hitman game is strong, even though he’s officially out of action. Here’s the official plot synopsis:
Legendary hitman John Wick is forced back out of retirement by a former associate plotting to seize control of a shadowy international assassins’ guild. Bound by a blood oath to help him, John travels to Rome where he squares off against some of the world’s deadliest killers.
Ian McShane returns in the role of Winston and Bridget Moynahan is back in the role of Helen, Wick’s departed wife – presumably in flashback unless there’s some time-travel or prequel stuff going on. John Leguizamo also returns.
Other cast members include Ruby Rose, Common, Peter Stormare, Laurence Fishburne and Peter Serafinowicz.
John Wick: Chapter 2 is released on February 10 in the US and February 17 in the UK.
