One thing is evident from the John Wick: Chapter 4 trailer that dropped a day ago- it’s life or death for beloved John Wick.
Lionsgate released the preview video for the fourth installment of the John Wick franchise, revealing an A-list cast, suspense, and near-death experiences as Keanu Reeves' character strives to take on the underdogs.
Everything in the trailer screams John Wick's possible death, from the intro where he seems to be saying his prayers in a candle-packed sanctuary. He meets Caine, who asks him, 'Can you hear your wife?' And Wick replies, 'No.' Caine then tells John that he's going to die, but disagreeing with the cruel fate, John says, 'Maybe not.'
One phrase raises eyebrows, “A man has to look his best when it’s time to get married or buried,” Bowery tells John as he hands him his iconic classic black suit.
NO WAY BACK. ONE WAY OUT!
Filled with so much death and action, John Wick: Chapter 4 focuses on the highly sought-after hitman John Wick as he attempts to fight the most dangerous players in the underworld. Things may be oblique for this favorite assassin.
Keanu Reeves returns to play the titular character John Wick aka Jardani Jonavich, a legendary hitman whose hunted by the High Table. Martial artist Donnie Yen joins Reeves as Caine, while Samurai’s Hiroyuki Sanada is Shimazu.

When Will ‘John Wick: Chapter 4’ Premiere?
Lionsgate confirmed the film’s theatrical release date of March 24 2023. John Wick: Chapter 4 was initially slated for a May 21 2021 debut but was postponed to May 27 2022 due to COVID delays. The premiere was further pushed forward to next year to avoid opening against the eagerly anticipated Top Gun sequel.
