We’ve got our hands on an exclusive poster for John Wick, ahead of the film’s UK cinema release.
The film marks Keanu Reeves’ return to action form, and drummed up strong reviews and stronger box-office on its US bow last year.
Keanu is in unstoppable one-man-army mode as the titular assassin, brought out of retirement after a run-in with the punk kid of one of New York’s most notorious crime bosses.
Check out the exclusive poster below:
Here’s the official blurb:
When a retired hit man is forced back into action by a brutal Russian mobster, he hunts down his adversaries with the ruthlessness that made him a crime underworld legend in John Wick; a stylish tale of revenge and redemption.
After the sudden death of his beloved wife, John Wick (Keanu Reeves) receives one last gift from her, a beagle puppy named Daisy, and a note imploring him not to forget how to love. But John’s mourning is interrupted when his 1969 Boss Mustang catches the eye of sadistic thug Iosef Tarasov (Alfie Allen) who breaks into his house and steals it, beating John unconscious and leaving Daisy dead. Unwittingly, they have just reawakened one of the most brutal assassins the underworld has ever seen.
John’s search for his stolen vehicle takes him to a side of New York City that tourists never see, a hyper-real, super-secret criminal community, where John Wick was once the baddest guy of all.
Directed by Chad Stahelski (a former stunt specialist who had previously worked with Reeves), John Wick opens in UK cinemas on 10 April 2015.
