John Wick was a film that won audience’s heart with a puppy, soured it with said puppy’s death, and paid it all off with a rewarding tale of revenge. The gun-fu action was top notch, and with few words being tossed around, the all-around badass Keanu Reeves was very much in his element.

Now, all of a sudden, a couple short years later, audiences are looking forward to seeing what John Wick is up to next, and more importantly: will this new dog we see in the trailers go the way of his predecessor? While we can’t tell you whether or not that’s the case, we CAN show you a brand spankin’ new clip from the show.

In this clip, we see John Wick returning to the awesome Continental hotel from the first film. As Wick makes his way upstairs, the dog merely gives the hotel clerk the staredown. 

Check out the clip below!

While all the signs are pointing to this movie being good, it can’t be overlooked that John Wick: Chapter 2 will only be seeing the return of one-half the directing duo that brought us the original film. While David Leitch movedon to his own solo film, Chad Stahelski stayed behind to man the ship. Let’s hope he’ll bring all the right elements to this one to make it another big hit.

The synopsis for John Wick: Chapter 2 is as follows:

“Legendary hit man John Wick comes out of retirement when a former associate plots to seize control of an international assassins’ guild. Bound by a blood oath to help him, Wick travels to Rome to square off against the world’s deadliest killers.”

What did you think of this first taste of the film? Do you expect it to, in any way, measure up to the high bar set by the first one? Let us know in the comments down below!

John Wick: Chapter 2 shoots his way into theaters on February 10, 2017!
