While fans sit at home and worry about the behind-the-scenes struggles of The Batman and Flash, Zack Snyder keeps moving right along with that Justice League movie. A common complaint of the DC Cinematic Universe is that they haven’t let it bake in the oven enough; each character has a decent foundation in place with the supporting characters and visuals, but rather than build them up organically, Warner Bros. has chosen to throw them all together and hope things shake out for the best.
In 2014, a pair of veteran stunt coordinators introduced the world to John Wick, a former assassin who rages out of retirement to seek revenge on the man who killed his puppy and stole his car. With action as sharp and seemingly seamless as the impeccable suits worn by its eponymous protagonist, John Wick reinvigorated a genre bloated with CGI and dominated by implausibly acrobatic vehicles. In 2017, Keanu Reeves is back with John Wick: Chapter 2, a righteous follow-up that’s bigger and maybe not better, but just as good as its predecessor.
He’s back, and he’s brought some friends along with him. Or, more likely, enemies, because he’s John Wick. Feast your eyes on a bunch of new images from the upcoming John Wick Chapter 2, featuring new characters played by the likes of Ruby Rose, Ian McShane, Common, and more. Even the stills look fantastic; there’s a reason this movie made our Most Anticipated Movies of 2017 list.
We have a few days before the end of 2016, but more importantly, less than two months before John Wick is thinking he’s back again — this time with a canine upgrade, some new assassins, and a delightful reunion with Matrix co-star Laurence Fishburne. In keeping with the spirit of the season, Lionsgate has released a new photo from John Wick: Chapter 2, giving us a preview of that mini-reunion along with a few details about Fishburne’s role in Wick’s world.
Yeah, yeah, he’s thinking he’s back. That John Wick just can’t seem to stay retired, and according to a recent update, he’ll continue to remain un-retired for a third film. In the meantime, we have some new photos from John Wick: Chapter 2, which feature Keanu Reeves in a little of that neon lighting that suits him so well, along with some characters who aren’t named John Wick.
John Wick is back, and this time with a new pup, a new suit, and a lotta guns.
Richard Linklater’s follow-up to Everybody Wants Some is another sequel of sorts, but in an intriguing twist, it’s not connected to one of his own films. Instead, the Boyhood director has been developing a sequel to The Last Detail, the classic 1973 film starring Jack Nicholson and Randy Quaid. And now we have a few more reasons to get excited for Linklater’s latest: Steve Carell, Bryan Cranston and Laurence Fishburne.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice hits theaters this week (in four days, but who’s counting?), and although we’ve seen plenty of footage in all the trailers and TV spots, Warner Bros. has released another preview of Zack Snyder’s superhero epic — just in case you’re feeling a bit impatient. Four minutes of B-roll footage has arrived online, offering a sneak peek at some previously unseen sequences, along with another look at the Batmobile in action and one particularly silly Laurence Fishburne.
It seemed as though Lionsgate was finished revealing the full cast list for John Wick 2, which includes several returning stars (like Ian McShane) and a few new faces (like Common). But the highly-anticipated action sequel still has a few surprises up its sleeve, and while we imagine there’s plenty left to see when the film actually hits theaters, there’s one particular bit of news from the set that should make you very happy. But be warned: if you don’t want to spoil a potential cameo for yourself, turn back now.
Passengers is one of the most anticipated upcoming projects, pairing mega-star and everyone’s favorite imaginary BFF Jennifer Lawrence with recent blockbuster breakout Chris Pratt. The sci-fi romance, which also stars Michael Sheen as a robot, has just added another major name to the cast: Laurence Fishburne.
