CinemaCon is a double-edged sword for cinema fans. Because the fair at Caesars Palace Hotel is aimed specifically at cinema operators, the studios are really using everything they have to promote their upcoming blockbusters in the best possible way (after all, it’s about convincing those in attendance to screen their films — if possible in the largest hall – to play). For example, the blockbuster sequel » Top Gun 2 » was shown there in its entirety yesterday before the official premiere.
At the same time, the trailers and other video material presented will not be published immediately afterwards, or at least within the next few days, as is the case at ComicCon. So it is clear that the first trailer for » Avatar 2: The Way Of Water » shown at CinemaCon will be shown in cinemas from next week before the screenings of » Doctor Strange 2 «. But it is not known when the trailer for “ John Wick: Chapter 4 ” – personally announced by Keanu Reeves who was present – will also be made available to the general public. So unfortunately we can only tell you what happens in the trailer instead of just showing it to you.
This is what happens in the trailer for «John Wick 4»
We remember: At the end of “ John Wick 3 ”, the contract killer Hotel Continental was first “secularized” by a judge of the High Council – which means that from then on people could murder in the hotel at will. But then Winston ( Ian McShane ) shoots – supposedly – John Wick on the roof of the hotel, who then falls down. The Continental is allowed to reopen in its old form, but the «corpse» has suddenly disappeared. The badly injured John Wick is handed over to the Bowery King , who himself has an ax to grind with the Hohe Kammer.
At the beginning of the trailer for John Wick 4, Laurence Fishburne as Bowery King asks, » Are you ready John? ‘ The promise follows on text boards: ‘ A new morning, new idea, new rules, new management. ‘ Now it’s up to Keanu Reeves as John Wick to answer the Bowery King , ‘I’m going to kill them all!’ desert, car chases and a shot of John Wick smashing his opponent’s head in with nunchucks.
Meanwhile, two voices come out of nowhere via voiceover: » I want you to find peace, John! » The only path this leads to is death! «
We will find out exactly what the mysterious announcements mean by March 2023 at the latest, when «John Wick 4» starts in German cinemas. Here is the short teaser that was published a few months ago as the first appetizer:
