John Wick 4's Trailer Gives Fans Hints Of Where The Action Takes Place

It's hard to believe it all started with a dog. In 2014, some goons made the grave error of killing John Wick's beloved pup, and the rest, as they say, is history. "John Wick," the debut of stuntman-turned-director Chad Stahelski, raked in more than $86 million at the box office, launched a beloved franchise, and created Keanu Reeves' most memorable character since Neo.

As "John Wick" spawns more and more films, each one marks a steady increase in scale, scope, and body count. The original film is an icon of New Jersey cinema, including crucial scenes in New York City and at The Continental Hotel on Wall Street. "John Wick: Chapter 2" brought the franchise overseas to Rome, and its reach spread even further with a visit to Morocco in "John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum." Now, the upcoming "John Wick: Chapter 4" promises to be a global enterprise, once again taking the character a long way from home.

Chapter 4 sees John Wick bound for France, Jordan, and Japan

The trailer for "John Wick: Chapter 4" is filled with details and Easter eggs, the most crucial of which hint at the movie's many locations. In addition to Wick's home base in the New York area, the trailer shows many shots in Paris — including the Eiffel Tower — and a nighttime car chase through the circular roads surrounding the Arc de Triomphe.

In an interview with Collider, Chad Stahelski confirmed that "John Wick: Chapter 4" contains an action-packed scene in the Louvre. "We had an amazing location diversity on the scout from Sacré Coeur, to Arc de Triomphe, to the Louvre, to the Eiffel Tower, to some amazing places throughout." In France, Wick meets the Marquis de Gramont (Bill Skarsgård), a member of the High Table.

The cast and crew traveled elsewhere in Europe, including Berlin. The trailer also hints at some scenes set in Japan, with neon Japanese letters and artwork acting as a backdrop to menacing figures holding katanas. The trailer also contains panoramic shots of a gunfight on horseback in a desert location. According to Stahelski, it's the film's opening sequence, and it was shot in Aqaba, Jordan. 

All in all, "John Wick: Chapter 4" sees its murderous hero jet-setting more than ever before. "Paris, Berlin, Tokyo, Osaka. We got around on this one," said Stahelski. "So hopefully, we brought all that great imagery to screen."
