John Wick 2 poster sees Keanu Reeves' hitman dressed to kill

Despite the fact that it starred actors like Ian McShane, Lance Reddick, Adrianne Palicki, and the ageless Keanu Reeves, John Wick wasn't really on many people's radar a couple of years ago. 

Of course we all quickly learned the errors of our ways, and just two years later the situation couldn't be more different. Indeed, given that John Wick was one of the biggest and best surprises of 2014 anticipation is very high for the sequel, which will be shooting up cinemas this coming February. 

While some things change however, some things stay the same. Specifically, Wick's penchant for suave black suits will once again be on full display if the first poster for John Wick: Chapter Two is anything to go by.

Director Chad Stahelski has also been talking up the action in the sequel: "I would say we had twice as much action as the first movie", he told Entertainment Weekly. "We took it all a full notch up as far as the driving car stuff went. A great portion of the car chase in the opening of the film is Keanu, which is very impressive". 

That's great news for fans of the original outing - which was already suitably action-packed - and as long as it's not too reliant on these sequences then John Wick: Chapter Two should make for a satisfying sequel. 

Directed by Chad Stahelski and starring Keanu Reeves, Bridget Moynahan, Peter Stormare, Laurence Fishburne, Lance Reddick, Ian McShane, Common, John Leguizamo, and Ruby Rose, John Wick: Chapter Two is released in UK and US cinemas on February 10, 2017.
