‘John Wick’ Review

John Wick
Lionsgate

Following 2008's disappointing 'The Day the Earth Stood Still,' Keanu Reeves took a break from Hollywood filmmaking. He starred in only three films over the next five years, all of them independent productions, and none of them in the action genre that made him famous. Then in 2013 came the deliriously infectious 'Man of Tai Chi,' which cast Reeves as the villain to Tiger Chen's martial arts hero. Reeves proved that, even at 50 years old, he could still do a fight scene with the best of them, and that his trademark blank delivery was as charming as ever (see: "You owe me a life").

Just one year later, Reeves is back with 'John Wick,' another goofball B-level action movie that's so much fun, you can't help but hope this is the beginning of a new era of action stardom.

But, this latest news might take the cake (or donut?) when it comes to biting style. Dan Aykroyd, the only one involved with the original 'Ghostbusters' who seems to want to have anything to do with the new 'Ghostbusters' says he wants to relaunch the franchise following the Marvel "shared universe" strategy.

Then there was the mysterious third spinoff, which we haven't much concrete information on. Until now. A recent report suggests that despite earlier reports that the spinoffs wouldn't follow any Jedi or Sith characters, Lucasfilm is currently working with artists and a writer to develop an Obi-Wan Kenobi movie.

'Star Wars: Episode 7' can have all the security measures it wants, but it can't stop a spy that has no idea he's spying. Enter Matthew Myatt, a pilot hired to take promotional photos for Airbourne Aviation, a flying club in Britain. Myatt happened to fly over Greenham Common in Berkshire and thought he had captured some "experimental" aircraft on the ground. It was only upon further inspection of the hi-res images that he realized those "experimental aircraft" were actually the Millennium Falcon and an X-Wing starfighter.

While director Zack Snyder did share a look at the 'Batman vs. Superman' version of the Batmobile, it was parked in a warehouse and half-covered in smoke. In short, you couldn't really get a good sense of what it would look like in action. Today, we get a much better look at what Batfleck's Batmobile will look like in 'Batman vs. Superman' as Bruce Wayne's whip has rolled onto the film's set for the first time.
