Japanese anime and Japanese filmmaking have definitely been something I’ve loved and have been influenced by. And bushido is definitely a theme in our film – you know, the code of the samurai – so, from the outside, it feels like a great fit, the idea of honor and sacrifice. There’s definitely a strong Japanese influence.
These influences are apparent in the recent trailer, although the newest installment is the first in which Wick actually travels to Japan
A closer look at the armored enemies seen in the shots set in Osaka reveal samurai-inspired plating and masks resembling men-yoroi face plates.
“John Wick: Chapter 4” will be released in theaters on March 24.
