Super-assassin John Wick is on the run after killing a member of the international assassin's guild, and with a $14 million price tag on his head - he is the target of hit men and women everywhere.
Anjelica Huston enjoyed working with director Chad Stahelski and was inspired by his vision. She says of Stahelski, "He's sympathetic without being soft, and I was also really struck by the beauty of the sets and all of Chad's choices. I loved the Tarkovsky Theatre with all the Caravaggio paintings on the walls. Chad's a man of grand gestures which makes for a powerful, fully-plumed kind of filmmaking."

John Wick: To remember Helen. To remember us.
In the horse stable fight sequence, you can see behind one of the horse stalls, a horse trainer pulling the reigns up and down to make the horse in the background jump up on its hind legs.
The film is dedicated to the late actor Michael Nyqvist who played Viggo Tarasov in John Wick (2014).
The Australian theatrical version modified one shot to get an MA15+ rating instead of the less commercial R18+. The part when John Wick stabs a man in the eye was obscured in the Australian theatrical version by it zooming in the shot. The home video version has been released unaltered with an R18+ rating.
