A live video countdown from Lionsgate teases the release of a trailer for John Wick Chapter 4 tomorrow, alongside a number for exclusive updates.
A live video countdown is teasing the release of a new John Wick: Chapter 4 trailer. The Keanu Reeves-led action franchise has become a major success because of its titular protagonist, unique side characters, and plenty of action in every film. The fourth installment of the franchise will see John dealing with the aftermath of Parabellum, in which Continental manager Winston (Ian McShane) shoots him off the building’s rooftop, only for John to be rescued by Laurence Fishburne’s Bowery King. The end of Parabellum insinuated John and the Bowery King will be teaming up to fight against Winston and the High Table.

Everything We Know About John Wick 4
The countdown timer alongside the phone number is a heavy indication that John Wick: Chapter 4 will have a new trailer out tomorrow at 11 AM EST/8 AM PST. With all the information about John Wick: Chapter 4 that has been revealed so far, it appears this will be the most ambitious John Wick project to date. Not only is the runtime of the film slated to be longer than Parabellum‘s 131 minutes of action-packed thrills, but stars like Fishburne believe it’s the best John Wick so far. The hype built up around the film so far further cements the notion that it will be a memorable time for excited viewers.
The film is expected to pull from Parabellum‘s worldwide scope, with John seeking out powerful assassins in places like Paris, Berlin, and Osaka. The multiple settings tease a diverse number of action sequences that are sure to please fans with their uniqueness. While initially slated to be filmed back-to-back with John Wick: Chapter 5, Lionsgate postponed production of the fifth installment of the franchise in March 2021. The film has also seen many delays since its announcement, with an initial release of May 2021 postponed due to Reeves’ commitment to The Matrix Resurrections and because of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Despite the number of bumps in the road, though, the new John Wick: Chapter 4 live countdown gives viewers a tease of the film’s upcoming trailer while also offering an opportunity for dedicated fans to receive updates about the film before anyone else. With new faces like Bill Skarsgård and Hiroyuki Sanada joining the John Wick universe, the upcoming trailer can do plenty to accustom viewers to their characters, roles in the story, and any actions sequences they get to be part of. With director Chad Stahelski already teasing an epic fight scene between Reeves and martial artist Donnie Yen, John Wick: Chapter 4 is expected to be another satisfying entry in the series, something that tomorrow’s trailer can set out to prove.
