John Wick enters the Matrix in this kick-ass retro trailer

Dan Neilan May 25, 2019. 5 comments

If John Wick: Chapter 3 proved anything, it’s that they should never stop making John Wick movies because they only get better and crazier with each new installment. With that exponential trajectory in mind, YouTuber Journey’s End cut a together a potential trailer for John Wick: Chapter 6, which finds our lead character (and Keanu Reeves himself) looping back on his own career to fight the AI armies of The Matrix. To make things more complicated, the trailer itself is stylized like an action blockbuster from the late ‘80s. Much like the John Wick franchise, it’s best to let it speak for itself.

Using some choice audio clips from Laurence Fishburne’s appearance in John Wick: Chapter 3, the trailer presents a film in which world-famous assassin John Wick is revived in the distant future to save humanity from the robot apocalypse. Needless to say, retirement is off the table. While the premise is patently ridiculous and the trailer consists solely of clips from existing movies, we still don’t find John Wick: Chapter Six—Contingency out of place in this bonkers franchise.

HBO’s Veep is scheduled to come to an end sometime next year, and, over the previous six seasons, the show has racked up too many hilarious moments to count.

The Dark Crystal: Age Of Resistance somehow looks even more impressive in its latest trailer The Dark Crystal: Age Of Resistance somehow looks even more impressive in its latest trailer

Our first glimpse of footage from Netflix’s Dark Crystal prequel led us to call Age Of Resistance “blockbuster-style puppetry” that looks “as impressive and richly rendered as a Hollywood blockbuster.” The latest trailer for the series, which debuts in just a few weeks, hasn’t changed that perception one bit. Above, you’ll see an even grander look at the world’s...
