Whatever happens in this sequel is fine… as long as the dog survives.

The first clip from John Wick: Chapter 2 has been released online, giving us a look at a scene with Wick (Keanu Reeves) and his second canine visiting the Continental. Lance Reddick is back as Charon, the clerk at the front desk.

The trailers thus far suggest we’re going to be in for an appropriately action-packed sequel. The first film surprised with its confident direction, slick action and smooth choreography, and of course with Reeves in the type of role that suits him best. Fingers crossed round two aces it… just Don’t. Off. The. Dog.

John Wick: Chapter 2, also starring Common, Riccardo Scamarcio, Laurence Fishburne, Ruby Rose, Bridget Moynahan, Lance Reddick, Franco Nero, John Leguizamo and Ian McShane, hits the US on February 10. Australian release date to be announced soon.

Synopsis for John Wick: Chapter 2:

In this next chapter following the 2014 hit, legendary hitman John Wick [Keanu Reeves] is forced back out of retirement by a former associate plotting to seize control of a shadowy international assassins’ guild. Bound by a blood oath to help him, John travels to Rome where he squares off against some of the world’s deadliest killers.
