Watch: Keanu Reeves Loses Everything, Including His Puppy In The New Trailer For Action-Revenger ‘John Wick'


“I lost everything,” Keanu Reeves intones solemnly in the new trailer for “John Wick.” Family, friends, you name it. But when you kill Keanu Reeves’ puppy, well, that’s a line you just don’t cross. Why? Because killing Reeve’s puppy will unleash a rain of revenge and terror. Yep, from what we can tell, that’s the gist of “John Wick,” the upcoming revenge actioner starring Reeves as a retired hitman who gets so pissed off that he’s coming to kill the puppy murderers real good.

Sample line of dialogue: “People keep asking If I’m back. Yeah, I’m thinking I’m back.” But you know what? “John Wick” scored some rave reviews out of Fantastic Fest. Sure, it’s a genre fest where revenge movies go down like Arby’s at a homeless shelter, but most reviews were amounted to “damn, Keanu’s actually pretty damn good in this!” (you can read our mixed/positive review here). The official synopsis is short and sweet.

An ex-hitman comes out of retirement to track down the gangsters that took everything from him. With New York City as his bullet-riddled playground, JOHN WICK (Keanu Reeves) is a fresh and stylized take on the “assassin genre.”

Directed by Chad Stahelski and co-starring Michael Nyqvist, Alfie Allen, Adrianne Palicki, Bridget Moynahan, Dean Winters, with Ian McShane, John Leguizamo, and Willem Dafoe, “John Wick” opens on October 24. Watch the new trailer below.
