The Film has been Shot in Multiple Cities Around the Globe
The official synopsis of the film reads, “John Wick (Keanu Reeves) takes on his most lethal adversaries yet in the upcoming fourth installment of the series. With the price on his head ever increasing, Wick takes his fight against the High Table global as he seeks out the most powerful players in the underworld, from New York to Paris to Osaka to Berlin”
Meanwhile, fans are already excited about the film’s release, with one writing, “The story for this franchise is getting deeper while the action gets even crazier. I can already see that the hand to hand combat in this movie is on another level. Knowing Keanu, he probably trained really hard for this.”
Another commented, “John Wick is the most anticipated movie, and I can’t wait to watch it. His readiness to lend a hand to those in need is one of his incredibly unique qualities. Most of the time, celebrities volunteer to gain more notoriety. Keanu detest being popular. The JW series never gets boring, and I’m looking forward to the first-day show.”
