Keanu Reeves Reveals The Most Difficult John Wick Scenes To Film

The John Wick franchise features Keanu Reeves pulling off an array of impressive stunts and pieces of fight choreography, and the star now reveals which scenes were the most challenging to shoot. First getting its start in 2016, the world of John Wick has continued to expand with each new film as Reeves’ titular assassin faces off against bigger and more powerful enemies. The series of films has earned critical acclaim for its devotion to technically challenging and intricately coordinated action set pieces, which Reeves often does himself.

In a recent interview with Collider ahead of the John Wick: Chapter 4 release date, Reeves shares what he found to be the most difficult scenes in the franchise to film. Reeves chooses a few notable highlights across all four films, with two from John Wick: Chapter 4 making the list. Check out Reeves’ full comment below:

“Oh my gosh! [Laughs] Let’s see, the first one that comes to mind was the horse sequence in Chapter 3. I would say, just as the first time, the assault sequence in Chapter 1. I would say the dance party fight in Chapter 2. And I would say probably it’s a tie between the Arc de Triomphe car sequence and the stair sequence in Sacré-Cœur.”

John Wick: Chapter 4 Takes The Franchise’s Action To New Heights

The fact that Reeves chooses two sequences from John Wick: Chapter 4 that were especially difficult to film speaks to how director Chad Stahelski is upping the ante in a big way with the upcoming movie. Each subsequent entry in the franchise attempts to build upon what came before it, and the new movie appears to be taking the gunplay, melee combat, and car action to a new level entirely.

One standout sequence from John Wick: Chapter 4 takes place around the Arc de Triomphe in Paris. The trailer has already provided a few glimpses at this sequence and a behind-the-scenes featurette has shown Reeves training in a real muscle car to pull off the complex vehicle maneuvers. As if the driving itself wasn’t difficult enough, the Arc de Triomphe sequence in John Wick: Chapter 4 also features Reeves shooting his pistol at enemies while he guns it around the iconic Parisian landmark.

The third movie featured a horse chase sequence through New York City streets and the trailer for the upcoming sequel has teased that the equestrian action is returning. The John Wick: Chapter 4 trailer briefly shows Reeves riding a horse through a desert landscape as others on horseback give chase, an interesting change of pace from the motorcycle-riding enemies he fought off last time. While many questions remain regarding how the upcoming sequel will expand the mythology of the John Wick franchise, it’s already shaping up to be the most exciting entry yet.

‘I am officially off the market’: When Margot Robbie revealed she made the ‘conscious’ decision of not dating actors

Margot Robbie revealed her decision to not date actors because of the media scrutiny that came with a public relationship of two high-profile actors
Back in 2015, A-lister Margot Robbie made a declaration that she would not be dating any actors. The actress may have alluded to her fiance Tom Ackerley, who she married the following year in 2016. In an exclusive interview with Marie Claire, she revealed that being in a relationship as an actor herself came with its own set of challenges. She believed that dating someone who was popular would add on to the media scrutiny.

Margot Robbie opened up on why she made a conscious decision to not date actorsTalking to Marie Claire, she claimed, “I am officially off the market.” She then shared the reasoning behind her decision and added, “I made a conscious decision not to date actors.” She continued to explain, “But not because I hate actors. That’s a nasty generalization to make, and that’s not the case. People take such an interest in your love life when you have a profile, it puts a lot of stress on a relationship.”
The Barbie actress continued, “So two people with profiles, I figure it’s just double the amount of scrutiny, and I’d like to avoid that at all costs.” This came after reports of her locking lips with Tarzan co-star Alexander Skarsgard started making rounds. It was reported that she was caught kissing the actor during the Sundance Film Festival.

Margot Robbie revealed she opted for a minimal lifestyle even after becoming an actorIn the interview, Robbie also opened up about how she was adapting to fame. She shared, “I have a normal 24-year-old life. If I were a waitress, I’d probably have the exact same lifestyle. I’d go to the same clubs I go to already, live in the same house with the same housemates, hang out with the same people.”
However, Margot Robbie tied the knot with Tom Ackerley who is an English producer and actor. The duo met on the sets of 2013 movie Suite Francaise where Tom was working as an assistant director. Post marriage, both of them launched their production company LuckyChap Entertainment.

‘Rocky’ Was Quite Different In His Original Screenplay, Sylvester Stallone Claims

Sylvester Stallone took his friend’s advice on a rewrite of the original screenplay to Rocky. A few tweaks later, he was on his way to major success.
In the new Netflix documentary Sly, Stallone discussed how he initially conceived of the project, which had a much harder edge. In the early version, Rocky was depicted as a “thuggish” character, inspired by Martin Scorsese’s crime drama, Mean Streets.

But Stallone’s perspective changed when a friend read the script and thought the boxer was too cruel for audiences to actually care about him.
Stallone recalled her crying.

“She goes, ‘I hate Rocky. I hate him. He’s cruel. He hits people. He beats them up.’”
Stallone took it to heart, and asked what he could do to soften the character.

“I said, ‘what if you stop short of it?’ Like, maybe he almost did. He could have, that’s his job, but he doesn’t?’ ‘That’d be nice,’” he added. “I said, ‘What if he had a girlfriend or something?’ ‘Yeah, that’s nice.’ So I go back, start writing that: ‘Girlfriend. Nice.’”
$117 million in box office later, a franchise was born.

Stallone also revealed that actor Dolph Lundgren sent him to the hospital during one fight scene in Rocky IV.
“Dolph Lundgren… he pulverized me,” Stallone says in the documentary. “Later that night, my heart started to swell—which happens when the heart hits the chest—and then my blood pressure went up to 260, and they thought I was going to be talking to angels. Next thing I know, I’m in intensive care, where I’m surrounded by nuns, and I thought, ‘OK, that’s curtains.’”
Stallone was in the hospital for nine days following the incident, praying for “one more round.”
“For the first minute of the fight, it is going to be a free-for-all,” Stallone told Lundgren. The Swedish actor joked in a separate interview that all he did was “obey orders,” explaining, “[Stallone] was the boss. I did what he told me.”
Doctors allegedly told Stallone that he received a blow to the ribs that made his heart rattle around in his ribcage, a condition typically seen in head-on collisions. “I did hit a bus, of sorts,” Stallone joked.
