John Wick: Chapter 2” is shaping up to be one of the most-anticipated sequels of next year. The action-thriller starring Keanu Reeves sees the return of the hitman, forced out of retirement by a former associate who is plotting to take control of an international assassins’ guild.

Ahead of its New York Comic Con panel, Lionsgate shared a new poster which shows Mr. Wick bruised, beaten and surrounded by men holding guns to his head. Even better: The new image seems to be a tribute to Harold Lloyd’s 1918 classic “Two-Gun Gussies,” as noted by Ted Geoghegan.

“John Wick: Chapter 2” is directed by Chad Stahelski and includes the return of John Leguizamo, Lance Reddick, and Ian McShane. Newcomers include Common, Laurence Fishburne, Ruby Rose, Peter Stormare, and Riccardo Scamarcio.

The first film was a surprise hit, earning positive reviews and box office success. Fans of the new franchise can’t wait to see where Wick’s new adventure takes him – let’s just hope nothing bad happens to his new dog.
