Now that Sad Keanu has been replaced by Sad Affleck and the former “Matrix” star is once again the face of a franchise, the world seems ready to accept Keanu Reeves into its heart again. We’ll see whether the underrated actor’s recent of string of good luck holds when “John Wick: Chapter 2” is released next month. In the meantime, watch a new clip from the upcoming sequel below.
In it, Reeves and co-star Laurence Fishburne speak briefly about a matter of great importance: the contract on Wick’s head. “He’s offered $7 million for your life,” Fishburne informs our intrepid, dog-loving hero, though who “he” is isn’t immediately clear. “$7 million is a lot of money, Mr. Wick.” Mr. Wick himself is unfazed, telling his associate that he has two options: go to war or give him a gun.
Ian McShane, Common, Riccardo Scamarcio, Ruby Rose, John Leguizamo, Bridget Moynahan and Peter Stormare all co-star in the film, which finds Chad Stahelski returning to the director’s chair. Summit Entertainment will release “John Wick: Chapter 2” on February 10.
