New UK poster arrives for John Wick Simon Fitzjohn February 26, 2015 Latest News and Videos 1957 It seems a bit unfair that we’ve had to wait so long for John Wick – after all, it hit the States last year – but, if anything, that’s only heightened our interest. Seemingly putting Keanu Reeves back on the ‘cool’ radar, John Wick looks set to be an explosive, over-the-top action romp that we can all enjoy. Here’s the synopsis: 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. With the film finally crawling towards its April 10 release in the UK, Warners have released a tasty new poster to mark the occasion.
