Early next year, Keanu Reeves returns as hitman and title character in John Wick: Chapter 2, the follow-up to 2014’s critically-acclaimed breakout hit John Wick. The sequel, in theaters February 10, 2017, has released a new poster (seen below), which arrives on the heels of Lionsgate’s announcement that the film will make its way to New York Comic Con where it will share stage time with Saban’s Power Rangers. More on that in a bit.
In the next chapter, 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.
Director Chad Stahelski, as well as screenwriter Derek Kolstad, returned for the film, which co-stars Common, Bridget Moynahan, John Leguizamo, Tom Sadowski, Ruby Rose, Laurence Fishburne, Peter Stormare and Ian McShane.
Back to the NYCC panel: Lionsgate will host a power-packed panel that will feature the stars and filmmakers from both John Wick: Chapter 2 and Saban’s Power Rangers on Saturday, October 8. Fans attending the hour-long panel will be treated to Q&A sessions with the cast and producers of the Power Rangers and John Wick 2, as well as exclusive, never-before-seen footage from both films. Those who cannot attend will be able to watch the panel LIVE on Twitch.
