Keanu Reeves’ Dog Is Killed By Game Of Thrones Star In John Wick Movie Trailer [VIDEO]
Keanu Reeves, once one of the world's biggest action stars thanks to the Matrix trilogy, has in recent years found his star on the wane a bit. His latest big budget adventure epic 47 Ronin was a huge bomb, so the former One has taken it back to basics in the upcoming low-key revenge thriller John Wick.
Here are things that are actually said in this trailer: "It's personal", "It's not what you did, son... it's who you did it to...", "That dog was the last gift of my beloved wife!!!", "You got out once, John... if you stick even a pinky back in, you may find something reaching out... TO PULL YOU BACK IN!". Also, the tagline is "Revenge gets WICKED", so that oughta give you an indication of what the makers are going for here - just a straight shootin', no nonsense bit of revenge fantasy for us all to indulge in while chuckling sensibly at all the badass silliness going on.
Those creators actually include director Chad Stahelski, stunt coordinator for Keanu on the Matrix movies so you know the action will be pretty awesome, with the added bonus of it not having to be broken up by Intro To Philosophy monologues.
I'm not going to spoil how many well-known and beloved character actors appear in this trailer, since their reveals are built up rather awesomely. Let's just say it starts with Game Of Thrones' Theon Greyjoy punching Keanu's puppy and it just gets more and more amazing from there.
John Wick will blast his way into our hearts through dozens of made guy skulls this October 24.
