Watch: Keanu Reeves Goes on Puppy Justice Rampage in 'John Wick'

John Wick

Summit Entertainment

“Matrix” star Keanu Reeves returns to the action thriller genre in Chad Stahelski’s “John Wick.” Reeves is an ex-hitman whose puppy meets its untimely end at the hands of a Russian crime lord’s bratty kid. (The puppy was Wick’s security blanket in dealing with the aftermath of his wife’s death — his last gift from her.)

Cue the bullets and blood, as Reeves’ character descends into a violent rampage of revenge against the villainous stylings of mob boss Michael Nyqvist, dog-killer Alfie Allen and company. 

Also starring Adrianne Palicki, Dean Winters, Bridget Moynahan, Ian McShane, John Leguizamo and Willem Dafoe, “John Wick” will be released by Lionsgate in regular and IMAX theaters October 24. Check out the new poster and trailer below:
