Keanu Reeves would be open The Matrix 4, if the Wachowskis were directing

19 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Out and about on the promotional rounds for his hit action sequel John Wick: Chapter 2, Keanu Reeves has been chatting to Yahoo! Movies about whether he’d be open to reprising the role of Neo for a fourth Matrix movie.

“The Wachowskis would have to be involved,” said Reeves. “They would have to write it and direct it. And then we’d see what the story is, but yeah, I dunno, that’d be weird, but why not?”

Neo was of course killed at the conclusion of the third movie The Matrix Revolutions, but as Reeves went on to note, “People die, people in stories don’t.”

Would you like to see Reeves reuniting with the Wachowskis for a fourth Matrix film? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below…

‘John Wick: Chapter 2′ Review

22 hours ago | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Keanu Reeves, Riccardo Scamarcio, Ian McShane, Ruby Rose, Common, Claudia Gerini, Lance Reddick, Laurence Fishburne, Tobias Segal, John Leguizamo | Written by Derek Kolstad | Directed by Chad Stahelski

2014′s John Wick took pretty much everyone by surprise. The third in a trilogy of action movies Keanu Reeves made in 2013/4, John Wick succeeded where 47 Ronin and The Man of Tai Chi (in which Reeves played the villain) didn’t. And that’s not to say that either of those films were sub-par, far from it. However there was something about the stoic, unstoppable hitman John Wick that resonated with audiences across the globe. And so three years later we finally get a sequel.

From the same writer/director team as the first film, Derek Kolstad and Chad Stahelski respectively, John Wick Chapter 2 picks up where the first film left off. Literally. John heads back to the gang who stole his car »

The cinephile’s in the audience will glee at this footage only to be interrupted by a speeding motorbike pursued by an unknown assailant in a sub-par car (you can guess who is in that car). Wasting no time the audience are treated to an impressive car chase through the wet soaked cityscape, ending in a warehouse as our titular antihero tears through a series of henchmen and, for lack of a better word, »

Keanu Reeves elaborates on John Wick: Chapter 2 ending

14 February 2017 2:05 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

John Wick: Chapter 2 isn’t out yet in the UK, but over here in the States a lot of us are wondering and speculating on the direction of the franchise after the ending. It’s a good, positive discussion mind you.

Fortunately for us, Keanu Reeves shared his thoughts on that very subject speaking to CinemaBlend, stating: “We wanted to come to a place that John literally had to fight for his life, and that he’s starting to become a little anti-establishment. And that’s really where the character starts to develop. It’s like the rules and world that he lived by, aren’t starting to work for him, and they’re not working! There are people who are out to get him because of [his] transgressions. And we liked that idea because we like John – when I say ‘we’ I mean the producers, the writer, the director »

Second Opinion – John Wick: Chapter 2 (2017)

14 February 2017 7:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

John Wick: Chapter 2, 2017.

Directed by Chad Stahelski.

Starring Keanu Reeves, Riccardo Scamarcio, Ruby Rose, Common, Claudia Gerini, Lance Reddick, Tobias Segal, Ian McShane, Bridget Moynahan, John Leguizamo, Peter Stormare, Laurence Fishburne, and Franco Nero.

Synopsis:

After returning to the criminal underworld to repay a debt, John Wick discovers that a large bounty has been put on his life.

Action cinema is in a sort of dirge at the moment where geriatric superstars – Liam Neeson, Denzel Washington, Kevin Costner – fight valiantly against disposable henchman while being cut to shreds in the edit room because to truly believe them as dangerous would be to take too big a leap of faith. Enter real life Dorian Grey, Keanu Reeves, appearing once more as he did with Neo way back in 1999 with John Wick, a character in a similar mold to those mentioned – vengeance induced by death (of his dog) – who was brought »

Lego Batman Movie Beats Fifty Shades, John Wick at the Box Office

12 February 2017 11:56 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Before The Hunger Games set box office records in March 2012, that month wasn't normally considered one to launch a franchise. Lately, February has been a go-to month to launch some unconventional blockbusters, following the success of Warner Bros.' The Lego Movie ($69 million opening, $469.1 million worldwide). Fifty Shades of Grey ($85.1 million opening weekend, $571 million worldwide), Kingsman: The Secret Service ($36.2 million opening weekend, $414.3 million worldwide) and the R-rated Deadpool ($132.4 million debut, $783.1 million worldwide). This year, three highly-anticipated movies square off, with The Lego Movie spin-off The Lego Batman movie facing a pair of R-rated sequels, Universal's sexually-charged erotic drama Fifty Shades Darker and Lionsgate's action-packed John Wick: Chapter 2. As expected, all three newcomers fared quite well, but The Lego Batman Movie came out on top with $55.6 million.

Box Office Mojo reports that The Lego Batman Movie debuted in 4,088 theaters, with this animated spin-off earning an impressive $13,609. Fifty Shades Darker opened in second place with $46.7 million, »

John Wick 2 review

12 February 2017 5:00 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Keanu Reeves returns in the eagerly-awaited John Wick 2. It makes us want John Wick 3, please.

“He did warn you.”

After his rampage in the first film, assassin extraordinaire John Wick is no longer viewed as retired, causing long buried ties to resurface. Forced to take on a task in Europe, Wick soon finds himself with another personal beef to resolve. Violence ensues.

Some of the questions I had going into John Wick Chapter 2 weren’t answered positively. The first film has such a simple, primal story to frame all of that brilliant inventive action. Could a sequel find something similarly urgent without treading the same ground?

It’s no lazy rework, but the story isn’t as good. It’s not linear enough to allow it to build momentum as easily, and it’s only in the last 40 minutes that it really feels urgent. The airy second quarter in »

John Wick Chapter 2 Premiere Interviews: Keanu Reeves & director Chad Stahelski

10 February 2017 12:20 PM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Jon Lyus

This evening Keanu Reeves brought his own particularly special set of skills to London for the Gala screening of John Wick Chapter 2. This is the second film in a presumably ongoing series for the actor, in which pits the semi-retired hitman against hordes of mafioso all across the world.

The first film had a number of exceptional set pieces which never strayed too far away from the ridiculous to cause any concerns. Indeed, the stripped bare narrative was one of the most important things John Wick Chapter 1 did. Fans of the first will be hoping that the sequel continues this trend.

The film stars Keanu Reeves, his co-star from The Matrix Laurence Fishburne, Bridget Moynahan, John Leguizamo, Lance Reddick, Ian McShane, Common, Ruby Rose, and Peter Stormare. The film is directed by Chad Stahelski and sees a release here in the UK at the end of next week. »

Keanu Vs. Common in New John Wick 2 Clip

8 February 2017 2:53 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

When John Wick (Keanu Reeves) is "working," that never bodes well for anyone on the other end of whatever gun he may be carrying. Today we have a new clip from the highly-anticipated John Wick 2, where Keanu Reeves' title character has to tell a fellow assassin, Cassian (Common), that he is in fact "working" tonight. Cassian isn't too thrilled to hear this, as a seemingly-tame night club turns into a blazing gunfight between two highly-skilled assassins.

Lionsgate debuted the clip on YouTube today, and while this scene only shows us the beginning of this confrontation, it could very well turn into an explosive showdown. The very end of the clip shows both assassins firing at each other, from a fairly close distance, and if it were two normal people with guns, they'd probably both be dead. However, we learned in an earlier clip that, upon arriving in Rome, »

Review: ‘John Wick: Chapter 2’ is a Clever, Satisfying Expansion

8 February 2017 10:08 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

John Wick‘s box-office score made inevitable another go-round with the seemingly undefeatable assassin whose soft spot for muscle cars and puppy dogs led to a whole lot of trouble, in turn making inevitable the fear (at least for yours truly) of diminishing returns. Is there any way one of this century’s leaner, finer American action movies wouldn’t be given the bigger-is-better treatment? Probably not. What about the kick-ass picture really needed an adding-to? Whatever its flaws, John Wick hit where it counts — a place where improvement is possible, certainly, if not so necessary when running the risk that a good time be diminished with weak imitation. Now that a sequel is upon us, you may ask: is it a step towards something better?

The answer is a bit of yes and no both, and that, I’m happy to report, is just fine. Closer to an expansion »

John Wick: Chapter 2 Review

8 February 2017 8:09 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Stefan Pape

When a film is awarded cult status, garnering a fervent following, it’s generally gained by productions not striving for such a reaction, as if picked up by accident. This makes any prospect a sequel somewhat challenging, and it’s a role taken on by Chad Stahelski, tasked with emulating what came before, except this time with the potentially hindering knowledge of what the fans respond to best, and most anticipate from this endeavour. It’s a fine line to walk, and with a minimum contrivance, it’s one this filmmaker has triumphed in with John Wick Chapter 2.

It all started with the death of a dog, and to be precise, it was the death of John Wick’s (Keanu Reeves) dog – which led to a savage rampage, as the skilled assassin went down the bloody path of vengeance on those who had wronged him. It was »

The Weekend Warrior 2/10/17: The Lego Batman Movie, 50 Shades Darker, John Wick 2

8 February 2017 8:00 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Welcome back to the Weekend Warrior, your weekly look at the new movies hitting theaters this weekend, as well as other cool events and things to check out.   

This Past Weekend:                                                                

Bomb, bomb bomb bomb, Boooooomb!  Things just kept getting worse and worse at the box office as this past weekend saw more new releases not meeting up to their potential. The horribly-reviewed horror movie Rings (Paramount) ended up around where I predicted with $13 million, taking second place to M. Night Shyamalan’s Split. The sci-fi romance The Space Between Us (Stx Entertainment) didn’t make much of a mark, opening in ninth place with just $3.8 million with about $1,300 per theater. Robert De Niro’s The Comedian (Sony Classics) tanked worse than many recent movies, making less than a million in 848 theaters or about $1,000 per theater. By comparison, the doc I Am Not Your Negro made about 78% of that amount in 800 less theaters. »

Movie Review – John Wick: Chapter 2 (2017)

8 February 2017 1:30 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

John Wick: Chapter 2, 2017.

Directed by Chad Stahelski.

Starring Keanu Reeves, Riccardo Scamarcio, Ruby Rose, Common, Claudia Gerini, Lance Reddick, Tobias Segal, Ian McShane, Bridget Moynahan, John Leguizamo, Peter Stormare, Laurence Fishburne, and Franco Nero.

Synopsis:

After returning to the criminal underworld to repay a debt, John Wick discovers that a large bounty has been put on his life.

John Wick was overrated. Let’s just address that elephant in the room now; the movie was filled to the brim with stylish gun-fu action but failed to deliver on a spectacular third act or final truly chaotic sequence. It lost steam and ended up being merely a good addition to the action genre, although by modern-day standards definitely one great and worthy of being cherished.

So why are we talking about the original John Wick and the fact that this critic personally found it mediocre in his review a few years ago? »

‘John Wick: Chapter 2’ Review

7 February 2017 4:12 PM, PST | Destroy the Brain | See recent Destroy the Brain news »

John Wick: Chapter 2 begins a short time after the events of the first film, with John (Keanu Reeves) now retrieving his car that was stolen at the outset. This is merely an excuse for us to see John destroy nameless thugs, and that he does. One could argue that this entire film is exactly that, and one would be right. But John Wick is so much more than just a living weapon of few words — he’s a tragic figure who has suffered deeply and can’t escape his past, with pain and frustration behind his eyes. All that he has is all that he is now, a lost soul with no purpose. After the first film, it would seem that he may be able to find a little peace now, but to quote Westworld (or Romeo and Juliet): these violent delights have violent ends. Peace is nowhere »

John Wick: Chapter 2 Review

7 February 2017 11:55 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

John Wick: Chapter 2 turns a familiar page in Keanu Reeves’ cartoonish assassin franchise. Back are the stylized “Gun Fu” battles, lavish locales and adorable dogs (who are safe this time), like some Mmo violence-fetish video game. Pacifists be warned – infinite henchmen feed John Wick’s cold, calculated bodycount. Those of you growing tired of head-exploding finishers will find little value in this savage, blood-soaked sequel. Thugs simply line-up to be blasted by Wick’s deadshot aim. The titular hitman appears invincible as he endures stab wounds and gunshot impacts, displaying little vested interest in portraying death for what it is – but goddamn if Chapter 2 isn’t more gorgeous body-snapping brutality.

Did you really think I was about to go soft, there? Not today, people. John Wick: Chapter 2 revs a supercharged engine that runs on gunpowder and Reeves’ marble-etched intensity. Showmanship overplays the lack of honor among killers, with »
