John Wick 4 has been on the minds of John Wick fans since the release date was revealed. The trailer’s release has increased expectations even more.
Why Keanu Reeves and Laurence Fishburne are Returning
In the new trailer for John Wick, we see that Keanu Reeves and Laurence Fishburne are reprising their roles from The Matrix trilogy. This time, they’re teaming up to take down a powerful crime lord.
We don’t know much about the plot of John Wick yet, but we do know that it’s going to be full of non-stop action. Reeves and Fishburne are both excellent actors, and they have great chemistry together. We’re excited to see them team up again on the big screen.
What is John Wick 4 About?
The fourth installment of the John Wick franchise is currently in development, with plans to begin production in 2021. The film will once again star Keanu Reeves as the titular character and will be directed by Chad Stahelski.
While plot details are currently being kept under wraps, it has been confirmed that the film will pick up immediately after the events of John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum. In that film, John Wick (Reeves) was left for dead by Santino D’Antonio (Riccardo Scamarcio) after killing his sister Gianna (Claudia Gerini). However, he was saved by The Continental manager Winston (Ian McShane), who then gave him an hour’s head start before sending assassins after him.
The fourth film will see John Wick continuing to fight for his life against these assassins. As he tries to make his way out of New York City. Along the way, he will encounter some familiar faces, as well as some new enemies. With a $14 million bounty on his head, John Wick is going to have his work cut out for him in this next installment.
Release Date, Synopsis, and Plot
John Wick 4 will be released in theaters on March 24, 2023.
The synopsis for John Wick is as follows:

Wick is drawn back into the fold and forced to take on a new assignment that may prove to be his undoing.
As far as the plot goes, we know that John Wick will revolve around Keanu Reeves’ character seeking revenge after the murder of his wife. We also know that Laurence Fishburne will play a pivotal role in the film. Though it’s unclear exactly what that role will be. Other than that, we’ll have to wait until February 10th to find out more.
Connections to the Previous 3 Films
The new John Wick trailer reveals that Keanu Reeves and Laurence Fishburne will be reprising their roles from the previous three films. The trailer also reveals that the film will be set in New York City. Which is where the previous three films were set.
It is not yet known how John Wick 4 will connect to the previous three films. But it is likely that the film will continue to follow John Wick as he tries to retire from his life of crime. The previous three films ended with John Wick killing someone who was trying to kill him. So it is possible that John Wick 4 will pick up where the last film left off.
Trailers, Gifs, and Images
We all know that a great trailer can make or break a movie. And with the release of the first trailer for John Wick, we now have a better idea of what to expect from the upcoming action flick.
In the latest clip, Wick is forced to challenge the Marquis de Gramont. Played by Bill Skarsgrd, to a duel in order to free himself. John equips himself with a brand-new outfit, numerous firearms, and other weapons as he gets ready for the fight as if it were his final one. Then, we witness Wick perform his signature, jaw-dropping method of murder. In the trailer, he can be seen firing at people while riding a horse in the desert. Repeatedly hitting a man in the head with nunchucks, tearing a man apart with an axe in a nightclub. And fighting Donnie Yen’s character with a sword and gun.
If the trailer is any indication, John Wick looks like it will be an exciting and action-packed ride. And with Keanu Reeves, Donnie Yen, and Laurence Fishburne leading the cast. We can definitely expect some great performances as well.
