If there is any action movie to get emotional during, it has to be “John Wick.” Dog murder and the sweet vengeance inflicted on those who commit it will always bring tears to my eyes. It’s no surprise that many share my sentiment.
The “John Wick ” franchise has been a runaway success since the first film’s debut all the way back in 2014. That’s seven years ago now. Since then, the franchise has had three chapters and is set to release a fourth in May of 2022.
At least, that was the plan. Lionsgate released a short teaser and the only thing that could make it more disheartening for any fan is if they showed us another puppy murder. Fortunately, it’s just another COVID delay. Unfortunately, the fourth chapter won’t be released until March of 2023, a whole year later!
This is a shockingly long delay. The film completed principal photography back in November and was given the sub-title “Hagakure.” I guess we’ll just have to wait and see if John Wick becomes a samurai.
