John Wick 4 Run Time: the epic action thriller that breaks all records for length!

While the impending fourth entry in the gun-fu franchise isn’t short on time, John Wick (Keanu Reeves) may be short on time. According to information, John Wick: Chapter 4 will be the longest installment in the series on 2 hours and 49 minutesincluding credits.

The film’s director, Chad Stahelski, assured us it would be the longest in the series, and it seems he kept his word. This information is being released during the aptly named “Wick Week,” which Lionsgate announced last weekend after the Super Bowl.

Wick Week is giving a week of exclusives, John Wick: Chapter 4 teasers, posters and more in exchange for skipping the Game Day commercial, which sounds like a reasonable trade-off. As previously announced, John Wick will face some of his worst foes in John Wick: Chapter 4.

As the price on his head mounts, Wick expands the scope of his battle with the High Table by taking on the most influential criminals in cities such as New York, Paris, Osaka and Berlin. The final few stills from the film deftly lean into the global setting of the fourth film, with Wick engaging in combat in chilly environments and on familiar Parisian landmarks.

The marketing for John Wick: Chapter 4 Expectations relied heavily on images of clocks. We think of time, from menacing ticking clocks to hourglasses full of bullets. The first episode of John Wick, which was released in 2014, was 101 minutes long.

The lengths of the sequels, John Wick: Chapter 2 and John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum, were 122 and 131 minutes respectively. Given that John Wick: Chapter 4 will run for 169 minutes, it looks like there’s going to be plenty of high-octane action and possibly even bigger stakes.

John Wick: Chapter 4 (Release Date) isn’t the first movie to debut with a long running time. Both The Batman and Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, which debuted in theaters last year at 176 minutes and 161 minutes respectively, had great, enduring, action-packed set pieces.

Without a doubt, Stahelski wants to make this episode of John Wick’s action even more intense. Especially when you consider how incredible it looks in the short clips shown in the trailer and teasers. Every second of this playtime is worth it.

Who else is coming back for Chapter 4 of John Wick?

Ian McShane will star as Winston and Lance Reddick as Charon in John Wick: Chapter 4, alongside newcomers Bill Skarsgrd, who plays the villain The Marquis, Shamier Anderson, who plays The Tracker, and Clancy Brown, who plays The Harbinger.

Shimazu (Hiroyuki Sanada) and Caine (Donnie Yen) will also compete in the fourth film. In addition, Reeves will once again team up with Laurence Fishburne as Bowery King, his previous Matrix co-star.

The names of the characters of Rina Sawayama, Scott Adkins and Natalia Tena have not yet been made public, but they will all appear in the film. John Wick: Chapter 4 hits theaters on March 24. Watch our in-depth interview with filmmaker Chad Stahelski for more information about the sequel.
