John Wick 4 runtime confirms the longest Wick movie yet

John Wick 4 runtime confirms the longest Wick movie yet

The runtime for John Wick: Chapter 4 has been confirmed, and it's almost 40 minutes longer than its predecessor.

Not to alarm you, but we’re getting very close to the release of John Wick: Chapter 4, and it’s just been revealed that it’s going to be an exceptionally chunky movie.

Back in December 2021 (which feels so long ago now) it was sadly confirmed that the movie was facing an almost year-long delay. Originally set to release on 27 May 2022, it was pushed all the way back to 24 March 2023. Well, that wait is almost over, and it sounds like cinemagoers will have to prepare a lot of extra movie snacks for the day.

Take a look at the trailer for John Wick: Chapter 4 below.

Collider reports that Chapter 4 will run for a very respectable two hours and 49 minutes if you sit through the credits. To put it into perspective, John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum was, up to this point, the longest film in the franchise, and that one clocked in at two hours and 11 minutes. An extra 38 minutes of action and Keanu Reeves’ breathtaking face is nothing to be sniffed at, but again, make sure you plan accordingly and bring enough popcorn to last. I say that like it won’t all be gone by the end of the adverts regardless, but it’s still a good excuse to bring loads in with you.

Sadly, series creator Derek Kolstad isn’t involved with Chapter 4, nor the already-confirmed fifth instalment. He previously said: “At a certain stage the studio will tell you, your creation is graduated, and you wish it well. I’m still close with Chad [Stahelski], still close with Dave [Leitch], and I don't know what's going to happen, but I'm excited to see.”

Regardless, it’s definitely shaping up to be worth the wait. With just over a month to go, the countdown has officially begun.
