As it turns out, John Wick’s journey of revenge and survival is close to coming to an end. The fourth film in the franchise that brought Keanu Reeves back to action cinema arrives this March with the promise of bringing the hero’s hunt closer to an end. Only, before the character reaches his long-awaited peace, he will have to face the toughest opponents in the entire organization.
It’s still unclear whether John Wick 4: Baba Yaga will truly be the series’ finale or whether we’ll see a fifth chapter in the future. However, one thing is certain: the pursuit of the protagonist will reach new levels and make Wick face some very powerful names in this underworld of assassins.
This includes bigwigs like Donnie Yen, Hiroyuki Sanada, and Bill Skarsgard, who make their franchise debut as both allies and enemies of the hero. And, in a year when action is still lacking, the debut of the new John Wick is one of the most anticipated by fans of the genre.
When will John Wick Chapter 4: Baba Yaga hit theaters?
John Wick 4: Baba Yaga is one of those films that has gone through several postponements and that, after a long wait, will finally hit theaters. The national premiere is scheduled for March 24th.
This is a very different date from the one originally announced: it was scheduled for May 21, 2021. However, the covid-19 pandemic and Keanu Reeves’ participation in the filming of Matrix Resurrections delayed production.
Thus, almost two years later than promised, we will find John Wick where the third film left off: with the hero still being hunted by the organization of assassins he was part of, fighting with all his might to survive while seeking allies that help rid your skin.
It is in the midst of this search for freedom that the protagonist will come across an offer that can put an end to the madness that has become his life. Only, in order to accept it, he will have to face some of the most lethal killers in the whole world.
