For those eagerly anticipating John Wick 2, Lionsgate have just launched a viral site to promote the film. Appearing as an online magazine in a similar style to GQ, the first issue of Continental Quarterly (named after the Continental Hotel from the movie) is set to be released in January.
Articles will include a Getaway car show between a 69 Mustang Mach 1 and a 70 Chevelle SS, a fitness article on John Wicks killer workout routine and the best dogs for a lone wolf. Best of all it will include an interview with the man himself, John Wick. Here is a letter from the editor:
“When most people think of the word ‘Assassin’, they picture a faceless animal, with no regard for the finer things in life.
But we know better. We know the trade is among the most refined in the word today. Our discerning members demand the finest tailors and fashion designers. They drink at lounges with the extensive spirits lists and master sommeliers. They are the best at what they do and they deserve nothing less. At Continental Quarterly, our editorial staff prides itself on helping them make the most of the Continental’s many amenities. In this issue, you’ll find a range of articles on subjects of interest to top assassins and those who hire them. We’ll look at the emergence of tactical fabric, the intelligent choices around classic auto restoration vs. modification, and updates and interviews with some leading lights of the trade, including Baba Yaga himself, the legendary John Wick. So relax and enjoy, a new issue is right around the corner.”
Keanu Reeves returns in the sequel to the 2014 hit as legendary hitman John Wick who is forced to back out of retirement by a former associate plotting to seize control of a shadowy international assassins’ guild. Bound by a blood oath to help him, John travels to Rome where he squares off against some of the world’s deadliest killers. Lionsgate’s “John Wick: Chapter 2” arriving in theaters on February 10, 2017.
