Keanu Reeves wears all black with a scruffy beard outside a New York City hotel… as he prepares to promote John Wick: Chapter 4

Keanu Reeves dressed for warmth as he braved the cold temperatures in New York City on Thursday.

The 58-year-old superstar – who is gearing up for the fourth chapter of his megahit franchise titled John Wick: Chapter 4, which comes out in March – rocked his trademark salt and pepper beard as he was seen outside the Greenwich Hotel.

The Matrix star cut a cool figure in a dark blue velor jacket, dark jeans, and tan boots.

The star wore a scarf around his neck and let his long hair flare out from under a black beanie.

The actor was seen outside a luxury SUV.

It was recently confirmed that Reeves will play John Wick a fifth time in the spin-off film Ballerina, which will star Ana de Armas in the lead role of a killer ballerina who hunts down the assassins responsible for murdering her family.

So far, there’s no official word on when the spin-off will premiere in theaters.

The grueling four-month shoot for John Wick: Chapter 4 wrapped just over a year ago and has been in post-production ever since.

The cast and crew ended up shooting predominantly in Berlin, Germany and Paris, France, along with some additional work in Japan and New York City.

With post-production nearly complete, the promotional push for JW4 has officially kicked into overdrive while de Armas has already started filming the spin-off in Prague.

The John Wick franchise stands as both a critical and commercial success, with a collective gross of the first three films topping $587 million worldwide.

The original John Wick (2014) earned $86 million on a budget of between $20-30 million, paving the way for a blockbuster sequel in 2017.

John Wick: Chapter 2 almost doubled the first film’s box office receipts, raking in $171.5 million against a budget of $40 million.

And audiences flocked to see John Wick: Chapter 3: Parabellum in 2019, helping it to amass $327.3 million at the worldwide box office on a budget of $75 million.

The fourth installment in the franchise has upped the budget to $90 million, but in a post-Covid world, it remains to be seen whether audiences will turn out in droves once again.
