Forget everything you know. The release date for John Wick Chapter Two for Australian (and New Zealand) has changed. May 11 is the new release date after being bumped from the previously confirmed April 20 date.
Why has this happened? In speaking with the distributor it seems much like the original delay it comes down to being bumped at the cinemas for screens. April 20 is the week right between the release of Fast 8 (The Fate of the Furious) and Guardians of the Galaxy 2, so we are suspecting the delay is one to maximise the Australian box office.
Are you planning on skipping the cinema and just getting it on home release? Well because of the delay for AU in cinemas there will be a delay on the home releases, that is Bluray, DVD and Digital Distribution. With the cinema delay being around 4 months after the US one we are likely to still have JW2 in cinemas here when it becomes available for home in the US.
We wish we could tell you this is all the Blue Pill talking but take heart in that the release is not likely to move again.
Mark your Calendars (or dont if you have one of our electronic ones) John Wick 2 is hitting Australian screens April 20 as just confirmed directly to us from the Film Distributor! No date for NZ yet but that isn’t why you are here. Why the delay? Well speaking with the distributor, the delay was in getting screens (which is a thing). While we are pretty upset we couldn’t watch it the same time as all the US online hype but we are still going to see the Full Keanu in April.
We fixed the movie poster AGAIN too…
