Keanu Reeves Blows Up a Lot of Stuff in Trailer for 'John Wick'

The poor guy just wants his dog back

Keanu Reeves proved his prowess for navigating buses in the beloved '90s action flick Speed. Now, he plays another guy who knows a thing or two about vehicles in the forthcoming action film John Wick.

In the film's first trailer, Reeves plays the title character, a former hitman who is forced back into his old lifestyle when an old pal wants him dead. And to think that this all could have been prevented if a few bad guys had just left John's dog alone.

In a pivotal scene, John is visited by an ex-girlfriend and is forced to run out of the bedroom in his underwear while dodging bullets. 

Adrianne Palicki, Willem Dafoe, Bridget Moynahan and Jason Isaacs co-star. Chad Stahelski directed from a script by Derek Kolstad. Reeves' last major film was 2013's underperforming 47 Ronin.

Summit Entertainment releases the film Oct. 24.
