At last! We are weeks away from the release of the fourth installment of the “John Wick” saga, and its final trailer already gives us clues about what we can expect from the film: a lot of action, a lot more blood, a lot more confrontations, and everything with the same objective: the freedom of this beloved character played by Keanu Reeves.
John Wick Wants His Freedom Back
According to Deadline, in this new chapter in John Wick’s history, the character will face off against his most lethal adversaries in his lifetime (or, at least, up to that moment), which are part of a group known as the High Table.
In different world locations, such as New York, Berlin, Paris, and Osaka, Wick will search for each of the members of the group while trying to survive various confrontations between powerful people who are looking to take his head, which will make things more and more complicated for the character.
In addition, before reaching the head of the group, this man must face a new enemy that has powerful alliances in every part of the world, among which we can find formerly known faces, some of which will continue to be villains of the protagonist, or they will be new threats disguised as allies.
“The only way John Wick will ever have peace and freedom, is in death,” says The Elder, a character played by George Georgiou, in a part of the advance. “Yeah… not really,” is what Wick calmly answers, giving us all an idea of where things will go.
