It’s insane to think that, after all this time talking about and reporting on this John Wick series, it’s a little over a week away!

Man, time has been weird since thon pandemic, hasn’t it?

Anyways, Peacock has released the opening gunfight from The Continental, the three-part series based on the hotel frequented by Keanu Reeves’ Wick in the movies, takes place in the 1970s and, from this scene at least, it looks like it doesn’t flinch away from any of the violence of the movies.

Which is great.

WATCH: John Wick spinoff, The Continental, gets full trailer… and it looks great

The Continental: From the World of John Wick is streaming September 22nd on Peacock

Synopsis: The three-part event will explore the origin behind the iconic hotel-for-assassins centerpiece of the John Wick universe through the eyes and actions of a young Winston Scott, as he’s dragged into the Hell-scape of 1970’s New York City to face a past he thought he’d left behind. Winston charts a deadly course through the hotel’s mysterious underworld in a harrowing attempt to seize the hotel where he will eventually take his future throne.

John Wick spinoff The Ballerina will be ‘unlike anything we’ve seen in previous movies.’

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
