I think I speak for all of us when I say I found the original John Wick to be an unexpected treat – riotous, bloody and packed with kinetic set-pieces.

Well, the good news is Keanu Reeves’ hitman will soon be back, with Warners unveiling the latest trailer to build anticipation for the February 17 release.

Here’s the brief synopsis:

In this next chapter following the 2014 hit, legendary hitman John Wick (Keanu Reeves) is forced back out of retirement by a former associate plotting to seize control of a shadowy international assassins’ guild.  Bound by a blood oath to help him, John travels to Rome where he squares off against some of the world’s deadliest killers.

Written by Derek Kolstad and directed again by Chad Stahelski, JOHN WICK: CHAPTER TWO boasts an all-star cast featuring Keanu Reeves, Common, Riccardo Scamarcio, Laurence Fishburne, Ruby Rose, Bridget Moynahan, Lance Reddick, Franco Nero, with John Leguizamo, and Ian McShane.

Here’s the trailer:
