Cue the angry Emoji faces. I really think I’m officially done with getting excited for any theatrical release at this point. Seriously, when I post an article about a film, further down the road, the date changes and it’s getting quite upsetting.
Now comes the worse news of all as Lionsgate has announced, in a teaser video no less, that the highly anticipated John Wick 4 will no longer hit on May 27th of next year. The movie has moved out of next year all together and will now launch on March 24th, 2023.
That’s right everyone. We have to wait another year to see the action movie that is on everyone’s must see list. I just put it on my Scott Adkins Must See Flix of 2022 no more than a day ago and now it’s a mute point. I have nothing else to say on the subject.
If you want, check out the video below where they cleverly announce the date change like we’re all supposed to be excited for it.
Keanu Reeves returns along with Ian McShane and Laurence Fishburne for the highly anticipated follow up that will see Wick forming an unlikely alliance with Fishburne’s the Bowry King after he is excommunicated and supposedly betrayed by longtime friend Winston (McShane).
Plot details are nonexistent as of now, but we do know that Yen is playing the role of Caine who is an old ally of Wick’s. The sensational cast which is worthy of an Expendables movie consists of Scott Adkins who is playing Killa although we don’t know which side he is on. Hiroyuki Sanada is playing Shimazu, and Marko Zaror is playing the antagonist Chidi. Other new additions include Rina Sawayama, Shamier Anderson (Awake), Bill Skarsgard (IT).
2022 already officially sucks. Oh well, I digress. Sigh……..
