Keanu Reeves Goes To War With The High Table

Keanu Reeves is getting down and bloody again in the first action-packed John Wick 4 trailer. Alongside Reeves, the cast for the latest installment in the action franchise will see the returns of Laurence Fishburne, Ian McShane and Lance Reddick. John Wick 4 will also introduce a number of action vets to the franchise, including Donnie Yen, Shamier Anderson, Hiroyuki Sanada and Scott Adkins, as well as Rina Sawayama, Bill Skarsgård and Clancy Brown.

Development on John Wick 4 was teased ahead of John Wick: Chapter 3 — Parabellum’s release, with Lionsgate confirming the sequel after its successful opening weekend, along with John Wick 5 shortly thereafter. Though initially planned to shoot back-to-back, the rise of the COVID-19 pandemic and Reeves’ schedule shooting The Matrix Resurrections saw these plans scrapped and focus put solely on the fourth film. John Wick 4 finally began filming in mid-2021 in multiple countries and finally wrapped in October.

As San Diego Comic-Con gets underway, Lionsgate has revealed the official John Wick 4 trailer as part of Collider’s Directors on Directing panel in Hall H of the event. The video offers the first proper glimpse at the action sequel as Reeves’ titular assassin makes his return and embarks on his new quest to face off against the High Table. Check out the exciting trailer below:

Given that the films in the franchise keep generally simple stories, the John Wick 4 trailer knows what audiences will be coming back for and shows off plenty of the action to be expected from the sequel. The trailer’s footage seems to be similar to that shown at this past April’s CinemaCon, in which Keanu Reeves’ titular assassin took to building on the samurai skills seen in John Wick: Chapter 3 — Parabellum, namely with his use of nunchakus in the new film. Though the first John Wick 4 trailer does see the return of Laurence Fishburne’s Bowery King, it does seem to be slightly different from the CinemaCon footage in which he simply asks Wick if he’s ready to get back to work rather than the more profane declaration of “You are in the presence of the motherf*cking king!”.

One of the more exciting takeaways from the John Wick 4 trailer is the reveal of the multiple new High Table members Keanu Reeves’ titular protagonist will be going to war with, namely Bill Skarsgård and Donnie Yen’s undisclosed characters. The Pennywise actor gets plenty of screen time in the trailer, potentially hinting at his importance to the plot in the same vein as Asia Kate Dillon’s Adjudicator in John Wick: Chapter 3 — Parabellum, while Yen appears to be a high-ranking member of the High Table and a formidable foe for Wick in the film. Audiences will have to keep their eyes peeled for a full John Wick 4 trailer in the lead up to the film’s March 24, 2023 release.

‘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.
