Keanu Reeves needs no further introduction.
From playing an iconic cyberpunk to a vengeful retired assassin and soon a new cartoon character in ‘Toy Story 4’, there’s nothing the man can’t do.
Although he’s more famously known for his ‘gangster’ roles, Keanu often makes headlines for living a simple, humble life. He’s also a very sweet guy in real life (according to these real-life accounts
), a total opposite of the killer roles he plays.
For the past few weeks, we’ve seen an influx of all things Keanu on the internet (which is a good thing, to be honest) and if you’re wondering why, well, that’s because a lot of his movies are coincidently released within the same period.
Here’s some new movies or exciting projects that Keanu have appeared or will appear in this month.
#1 ‘John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum’
This movie may have come out at the end of May but the movie is still showing in cinemas and Reeves himself ‘killed off’
the universe’s mightiest heroes, 'The Avengers
', from dominating the box office. John Wick is back once again in the third installment of the movie and this time he’s a marked man wanted by crime lords and assassins. We heard that the fight scenes in this movie are crazier than before, so you’ve got to catch it in cinemas to enjoy it.
#2 ‘Always Be My Maybe’
The original Netflix rom-com dropped on 31 May but the hype about it just recently caught on. The TV movie starring Ali Wong and Randall Park received rave reviews from fans and critics, but it was one special guest that made the movie all the more memorable – yep, it's Keanu Reeves. Reeves plays Keanu Reeves (d'uh!), who is Ali's love interest in the movie.
#3 ‘Toy Story 4’
There have been rumours circulating earlier in the year that the fourth installment of ‘Toy Story’ will feature Keanu Reeves. Some speculated that he’ll make a special appearance, others think that he’ll voice a new character. Well, a few months later, true enough, he’s making a special appearance as a new character named Duke Caboom, Canada’s greatest stuntman. Keanu’s new role is something we fans look forward to seeing, and that includes Mr Captain America himself, Chris Evans:
The actor says that if they (Disney) released just two hours of this (a behind-the-scenes clip of Keanu voicing Duke) and released it as ‘Toy Story 4’, he’ll probably see it in the cinemas at least twice. Same, Evans, same.
#4 ‘Cyberpunk 2077’
Now, you might be thinking “is this a new movie?” or “a spin-off of ‘The Matrix’?” Well, it’s neither because ‘Cyberpunk 2077’ is actually a new upcoming video game for Xbox which will be released on 16 April 2020. Reeves also recently made an appearance at the E3 convention, which is the Comic-Con of video games to announce the release date of the game and his involvement in it.
But what stole the spotlight (and hearts) during the convention was when an audience member shouted, “you’re breathtaking” while Keanu was talking which he immediately responded “you’re breathtaking! You’re all breathtaking.”
The interaction was pure gold and won the internet for the day.
So, there you have it guys. Here’s a month-long dose of our favourite humble man. Never change, Keanu.
