Until morale improves, the John Wick series will continue to inflict punishment – this time in the 1970s.
The first full trailer for The Continental: From the World of John Wick is appropriately groovy, but it feels less like the work of John Wick director
Chad Stahelski and more like something concocted by Martin Scorsese and Quentin Tarantino in Kill Bill/Jackie Brown mode.
The Continental, billed as a three-part "event," will "explore the origin behind the iconic hotel-for-assassins centerpiece of the John Wick universe through the eyes and actions of a young Winston Scott,
as he's dragged into the hellscape of 1970's New York City to face a past he thought he'd left behind."
In a perilous endeavor to seize the hotel where he will finally claim his future kingdom, Winston charts a fatal course through the building's hidden underground."
Colin Woodell plays a young Winston Scott, stepping into the decades-younger shoes of Ian McShane from the flicks, before the unflappable hotelier became the assassin king of New York, whom fans first encountered in John Wick.
Ayomide Adegun is the younger version of the hotel's concierge, Charon. Mel Gibson, Mishel Prada, and Ben Robson are also in the cast.
