While San Diego Comic-Con proved to be disappointing on the movie side of things, New York Comic Con is looking to turn that around in a big way. This year, Lionsgate is bringing two of its most anticipated movies to the Javits Center, with the Power Rangers reboot and the sequel John Wick: Chapter 2. To celebrate the announcement, Lionsgate has debuted the first teaser poster for John Wick 2 featuring star Keanu Reeves.
Keanu Reeves is seen being measured for a new suit in this one-sheet, and it is quite ominous, and reminiscent of old Westerns where those heading into a duel were often sized for their coffin. Will John Wick be staring down the Grim Reaper in this follow-up to the smash hit? That's possible, and we're sure to learn a lot more in just a few weeks.
Keanu Reeves will be appearing at NYCC along with other John Wick 2 cast and crew. They will all be gathering at the Madison Square Garden theater on October 8 at 2 pm. There, a Q&A will take place along with the first ever footage of this sure to be action-packed adventure. Lionsgate had this to say about the event.
"Lionsgate will host a power-packed panel that will feature the stars and filmmakers from the highly anticipated feature films John Wick: Chapter 2 and Saban's Power Rangers during New York Comic Con on Saturday, October 8. Fans attending the hour-long panel will be treated to Q&A sessions with the cast and producers of Saban's Power Rangers and John Wick: Chapter 2, as well as exclusive, never-before-seen footage from both films. Those who cannot attend will be able to watch the panel LIVE on Twitch."
The PR goes onto state that Lionsgate will present a preview of two of 2017 most highly anticipated films, calling it a 'must see for all'. While not too much has been revealed about this John Wick sequel, the plot finds legendary hit man John Wick (Keanu Reeves) squaring off against some of the world's deadliest killers in Rome. The film will also serve as a reunion for Matrix stars Keanu Reeves and Laurence Fishuburne.
Also starring in John Wick Chapter 2 are Common, Ian McShane, Ruby Rose, Riccardo Scamarcio, Peter Stormare, John Leguizamo, Bridget Moynahan, Thomas Sadoski and Lance Reddick. The movie will be in theaters on February 10, 2017, just in time for Valentine's Day. Take a look as John Wick returns, all sized up and ready to shoot.
