'John Wick: Chapter 4': John Wick in fun facts to know almost everything about the iconic character of Keanu Reeves
BET À DAY
Keanu Reeves, Hollywood's coolest actor, is also a supposedly retired assassin in the John Wick franchise, whose fourth chapter arrives in cinemas on March 24, 2023. But what else do we know?
Obviously, an assassin who comes out of his forced and forced retirement kills a lot… and in a sometimes very creative way. Here is the famous body count— or “body count” — from each of the franchise’s first three feature films.
John Wick (2014)
In the first film, John Wick kills no less than 76 villains, or 0.8 deaths per minute. Pistol, rifle, knife, car, etc., the means are not lacking. The shotgun is the only slightly original way he has to kill in this first episode, the weapon will only have one victim. Another interesting figure: our man shoots mainly in the head with a success rate of 86.52%.
John Wick: Chapter 2< strong> (2017)
For his return, Keanu Reeves' alter ego kills 123 criminals, or 1.1 deaths per minute. Some of the more unusual ways include two deaths with a pencil and one with a tourniquet.
John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum (2019)
As John Wick tries to survive, he executes 88 villains, or 0.7 deaths per minute. In addition to the gun, our man shows imagination, because, this time, he uses a car (one death), an ax (one more death)… and even a book (another death). And it is when he is in the premises of the Continental Hotel that he is most deadly because he eliminates 34 of his enemies there.
P.S. As the co-directors pointed out, no innocent people are ever killed, which means you'll never see a dead cop in the saga.
How much $?
The success of the first feature film took everyone by surprise, and so was born a franchise that, today, has many children.
The three first films grossed US$587.01 million at the international box office, for a total budget of US$145 million. After this Chapter 4long-awaited, with a duration of 2 hours 49 (yes, yes!), a fifth film is planned, the release date of which has not yet been announced. In addition to a video game, John Wick Hex, released in 2019, the television series The Continental will be broadcast this year (Mel Gibson has a role in it) via the Peacock platform. with our neighbors to the south. Additionally, a spin-off film is in post-production starring Ana de Armas as Rooney, the ballerina-assassin seen in the third installment. This Ballerina is directed by Len Wiseman; it also stars Ian McShane and… Keanu Reeves, of course.
Keanu is everywhere!
The actor was interested in John Wick from the first draft of Derek Kolstad's screenplay. He also participated in certain rewrites in order to clarify the psychology of his character. It was also Keanu Reeves who came up with the title John Wick instead of the Scorn(literally “contempt”) original – fun fact, John Wick is the name of the screenwriter's grandfather. It was once again Keanu Reeves who asked Chad Stahelski and David Leitch, two of his former stuntmen from The Matrix, to direct John Wick.
The real Continental…
Since the very first opus was filmed entirely in New York, the exterior of the Continental can therefore be seen during a trip in the Big Apple. Fans can admire the facade of the Delmonico building at 2, South William Street in Manhattan. As for Chapter 4, it was filmed in Paris, Berlin, Tokyo and Wadi Rum, in Jordan, where Denis Villeneuve had settled down for Dune.
Yes, there are women in John Wick
Since the very first movie , the deceased wife of John Wick is played by Bridget Moynahan, whom we will see again in this Chapter 4. And, finally, know that among the producers of the first part, we find… Eva Longoria.
