Keanu Reeves returns with a vengeance in John Wick: Chapter 4 trailer

First, he returned as a killer because of a stolen car and his dead dog. Next, he avenged the man who double-crossed him. Then, he survived an entire army of bounty hunters after being labeled, “excommunicado.” Now, the elite assassin is out to take down the entire High Table and earn his freedom in John Wick: Chapter 4.

Keanu Reeves returns as Wick, the exceptional hitman who originally left the criminal underworld for a peaceful life with his wife, Helen. After Helen’s death, John is dragged back into a violent world as he looks to right the wrongs of his past, killing those who try to stop him. At the end of John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabelluman injured Wick is brought to the Bowery King (Laurence Fishburne), and they agree to team up to face the High Table. Chapter 4 will depict Wick’s global battle against the assassin organization. If the trailer is a tease of what’s to come, expect guns, axes, and a lot of death.

The best John Wick movies, ranked by box office gross
Keanu Reeves looks at the camera in John Wick 2.

Everyone loves a good action movie. From the original Terminator back in 1984 to last year's Brad Pitt-lead Bullet Train, audiences have flocked to see things get blown up real good for decades. It's no secret that action movies usually dominate the box office; after all, would you rather see Bruce Willis sneak around the Nakatomi building in Die Hard or a three-hour movie about shepherds in Siberia?

In the last decade, no action film franchise has quite dominated the charts as the John Wick franchise. From 2014's sleeper hit to 2023's John Wick: Chapter 4, these Keanu Reeves-starring action movies have quietly won over the hearts of fans worldwide. But which one is the most popular? Is it the sequel, John Wick: Chapter 2, or the original John Wick, one of the greatest action movies ever? Using each movie's worldwide box office gross, the following is a list of the most popular John Wick movies in ascending order.

5 John Wick characters who need their own spinoff movie
john wick characters who deserve spinoff movie caine sitting beside in chapter 4

The in-your-face action of the John Wick movies doesn't only spotlight the titular man in black slinging bullets, dishing out knuckle sandwiches, and taking names. The entire saga has played host to a bevy of colorful and intriguing characters who are all just as brilliant to watch in action as the main man himself. John Wick's story began earnestly enough, focusing on a man whose violent past catches up with him, and he reenters that world as a way to suppress his grief over a sudden loss. The follow-up films greatly expand the world of assassins he hails from, with John Wick: Chapter 4 serving as the culmination of the character's journey.

Despite not actually being based on any previous work, the John Wick saga, with its impossible and highly organized underground world of professional killers stretching across the globe, has morphed into the archetype of a flashy comic book adaptation. The supporting characters are just as over-the-top as Mr. Wick, each with varying backgrounds that allude to intriguing histories currently shrouded in mystery. Because of these characters, the world of John Wick doesn't have to conclude with his story. Here are five characters from the franchise that deserve their own spinoff movie.
