It seems that for every 10 box-office bombs for Keanu Reeves there’s one surprise hit.
In 2014 Keanu cashed in on the hit with John Wick, an action film with a simple premise set forth in the first 10 minutes of the film, that’s still packed with enough motivation to send a skillful ex-hitman into a violent vengeful rage of carnage and destruction. And it’s very fun to watch.
John Wick was ceratainly no blockbuster, but it did manage to earn over $80 million on a $20 million budget. Not to mention, John Wick garnered somewhat of a cult following once it hit Blu-Ray and streaming, making the demand for a sequel high while the budget can remain low. A great deal for Lionsgate studios.
Of Keanu Reeves will be returning to reprise his role as John Wick, furthering his identity as an actor with tremendous action movie prowess. Keanu Reeves may not be winning an Oscar for best actor anytime soon, but he is a legend in the action realm and one of my personal favorite actors to boot. Yeah, I said it.
