New Trailer: Keanu Gets Even in "John Wick: Chapter 2"

(NEW YORK) -- Keanu Reeves is back again, in the official trailer to his sequel John Wick: Chapter 2. This time around, Keanu's anti-hero fights off basically everybody, after refusing a mission and then becoming a target of a hit on his life. Ruby Rose is one of the triggerwoman, and rapper/actor Common is on the hunt as well. Reeves is reunited with his Matrix series co-star Laurence Fishburne in the action flick, and the snippet certainly packs in plenty of that: we counted nearly 30 gunshots, a handful of stabbings, one apartment-leveling RPG, and two car chases in under two minutes.   And it doesn't skimp on the snark, either.
