SCENES, AND THEN JOHN WICK WILL GET HIT BY A CAR, AND THAT’S
JACKSON SPIDEL–>>Stephen: THAT’S YOUR STUNT
MAN.>>YES, WHO IS AN AMAZING STUNT
MAN. AND HE GETS HIT BY THE CAR. THEN I’LL GET UP FROM THE CAR,
AND THEN I’LL DO A WHOLE BUNCH MORE OF, LIKE, ARE KUNG FU AND
WHATEVER AND JUDO. AND THEN MAYBE, YOU KNOW, THEN
IF I GET THROWN OFF OF SOMETHING, THEN JACKSON DOES HIS
THING.>>Stephen: RIGHT.>>BUT IN THE FILM —
>>Stephen: BUT YOU COULD IF YOU WANTED TO, BUT YOU DON’T
WANT TO TAKE HIS JOB AWAY.>>I COULD GET HIT BY A CAR BUT,
YOU KNOW, HOSPITAL. ( LAUGHTER ).>>Stephen: OH, YOU COULD GET
HIT BY A CAR ONCE, LAST FILM.>>THAT’S IT.>>Stephen: YES.>>BUT JACKSON IS A
PROFESSIONAL, AND HE KNOWS HOW TO DO THAT AND– BUT, I MEAN,
FOR JOHN WICK ACTION IS A PARTICULAR KIND OF ACTION. THE DIRECTOR WANTS TO MAKE IT
IMMERSIVE AND WANTS TO MAKE IT LUKE A PERFORMANCE, SO IT’S
REALLY LONG TAKES. SO WE– YOU KNOW, YOU TRAIN FOR
A WHILE.>>Stephen: WHAT I LOVE IS YOU
SEE THE FIGHT HAPPENING.>>YEAH, EXACTLY.>>Stephen: IT’S LIKE WATCHING
DANCE.>>YEAH, IT’S VERY MUCH LIKE
THAT. THE DIRECTOR HAS A VISION, THEN
THERE’S SOME CHOREOGRAPHY MOST OF THE TIME. AND THEN– AND THEN WE GO, WE
REHEARSE AND THEN WE PERFORM.>>Stephen: A SINGLE FIGHT,
LET’S SAY ONE FIVE-MINUTE FIGHT, YOU MIGHT DO, HOW LONG ARE YOU
TRAINING FOR THAT FIGHT?>>WELL, IT DEPENDS. SO THEY DON’T– OKAY SO, THERE’S
A COUPLE FIGHTS WHERE WE TRAINED A COUPLE OF DAYS, BUT WHAT
REALLY HAPPENS IS FOR ME, THEY GET– I GET BASICALLY LIKE A
JOHN WICK TOOLBOX SO I’LL KNOW HOWEVER MANY JUDO THROWS. THEY’LL CHOREOGRAPH MOST OF THE
JUJITSU. WITH THE HORSE, THERE’S A HORSE
FIGHT NOW. SO I HAVE TO DO SOME —
>>Stephen: YOU FIGHT A HORSE.>>I HAD TO GET OFF THE SADDLE. NO, I’M ON THE HORSE AND THEN —
>>Stephen: THE HORSE IS FIGHTING. THE HORSE IS FIGHTING.>>IT’S JOHN WICK. IT’S LIKE, INSTEAD OF JUST
RIDING THE HORSE YOU HAVE TO HAVE A GUN FIGHT AND DO ALL OF
THAT SORT OF STUFF.>>Stephen: WHAT IS IT LIKE TO
FIGHT ON A HORSE?>>IT’S FUN. ( LAUGHTER ).>>Stephen: DOES THAT MAKE YOU
NERVOUS AT ALL?>>NO! IT’S A MOVIE! IT’S FUN!>>Stephen: BUT THE HORSE IS
REAL. YOU COULD GETUE COULD GET THROWN
AND TRAMPLED.>>YEAH, YOU CAN DIE. ( LAUGHTER )
BUT THE THING IS– BUT THE THING IS, I MEAN —
>>Stephen: I WASN’T GOING TO GO THAT FAR, BUT THAT’S TRUE.>>THAT’S WHAT CAN HAPPEN. BUT THEY HAVE A SAFETY SYSTEM SO
THEY CREATED THIS RIG, WITH THE HORSE BEHIND A TRUCK AND THE
THING –>>Stephen: THEY STRAP THE
HORSE BEHIND A TRUCK. WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT?>>WELL KIND– IT’S VERY
COMPLICATED. BUT ANYWAY, YOU WON’T SEE THAT
IN THE MOVIE. I’LL JUST BE RIDING, AND IT WILL
LOOK– HOPEFULLY PEOPLE WILL ENJOY IT, BUT–
( APPLAUSE ) ( CHEERS )
BUT IT’S JOHN WICK!>>Stephen: I THINK WE HAVE–
I THINK WE HAVE AN IMAGE– I THINK WE HAVE AN IMAGE. IS THIS THE HORSE THING?>>YEAH, YEAH, BUT THAT’S
ACTUALLY JUST RIDING.>>Stephen: THAT’S JUST
RIDING, OKAY.>>THAT’S JUST RIDING. THERE’S A WHOLE OTHER THING THAT
HAPPENS.>>Stephen: DID YOU KNOW HOW
TO RIDE BEFORE THIS?>>YEAH, A LITTLE BIT. A LITTLE BIT.>>Stephen: HAVE YOU EVER
PLAYED A COWBOY?>>NO.>>Stephen: OKAY.>>YEAH. I’D LIKE TO. A WESTERN WOULD BE FUN.>>Stephen: SURE.>>BUT WITH THIS IT WAS JUST–
YOU KNOW, I WORKED WITH A SECOND-GENERATION HORSE MASTER
TAD GRIFFITH AND HIS FAMILY. YEAH, I MEAN, THAT’S REALLY WHAT
HAPPENS A LOT WITH JOHN WICK IS YOU GET TO MEET THESE GREAT
INSTRUCTORS AND TEACHERS. HEAL BERRY WORKED ON THE FILM. SHE WAS GREAT, AND SHE WENT INTO
JOHN WICK ACTION. SHE WORKED WITH TWO BELGIAN
DOGS. HER CHARACTER HAS DOGS. AND SHE TRAINED WITH THEM FOR
OVER –>>Stephen: THAT’S THIS.>>THAT’S THE SHOT. SHE HAD TO DO SOME JOHN WICK
ACTION. WHICH THEN SHE TRAINED FOR
ABOUT– OVER SIX MONTHS.>>Stephen: SO YOU’RE WORKING
WITH HORSES. YOU’RE WORKING WITH DOGS. IS IT HARD TO WORK WITH THE
ANIMALS ON SET?>>NO, AS LONG AS YOU BUILD,
“LIKE A RELATIONSHIP WITH THEM.>>Stephen: WHAT WAS YOUR
RELATIONSHIP TO THESE DOGS? ( LAUGHTER ).>>I DIDN’T DO THE HALLE BERRY
SIX-MONTH TRAINING BECAUSE THEY WERE HER DOGS. OKAY, AN EXAMPLE WOULD BE THE
FIRST DAY THAT I WENT TO TRAIN WITH HEAL WHO HAD BEEN TRAINING
WITH WONDERFUL DOGS, THE TRAINER SAID, “SO HALLEY’S GOING TO
STAND THERE. THERE SHE IS AND THERE ARE HER
TWO DOGS. YOU’RE GOING TO WALK UP TO THEM. DON’T LOOK AT THEM. DON’T LOOK AT THEM IN THE EYE.”>>Stephen: WHY.>>BECAUSE THEY’LL– THEY– THEY
MIGHT DO SOMETHING NOT GOOD. NOW, THESE ANIMALS ARE REALLY
BEAUTIFUL AND FRIENDLY AND AWESOME —
>>Stephen: AS LONG AS YOU DON’T LOOK AT THEM. ( LAUGHTER )
THAT SOUNDS REALLY DANGEROUS. DID YOU GO, “YOU KNOW, NO MORE
‘JOHN WICK’ MOVIES IF THAT DOG TAKES MY FACE OFF.”>>NO, YOU JUST HAVE TO PAY
ATTENTION. AND EVENTUALLY I GOT TO KNOW
THEM BETTER AND HE STILL TOLD ME NOT TO LOOK AT THEM. HALE WORKED SO MUCH THE TRAINER
TOLD ME– HALE BY THE END WAS HELLO. AND GIVING COMMANDS. AND IF YOU SEE THE FILM, IT’S
PRETTY SPECTACULAR WHAT THEY DO TOGETHER.>>Stephen: DID THE HORSE EVER
GET SPOOKED BY THE DOGS OR, LIKE —
>>NO, THEY NEVER MET EACH OTHER.>>Stephen: OKAY.>>NO. BUT DOG THEY HAD IN “JOHN WICK”
ESCAPED ONCE IN TIMES SQUARE AT 5:00 IN THE MORNING ASK WENT
AFTER ONE THOSE OF HORSES WITH THE CARTS.>>Stephen: THE FIRST DOG–
>>I MEAN, IT DIDN’T GO AFTER IT. WE WERE DOING A SCENE, AND THEN
THE HORSE AND THE THING, AND THE DOG WENT, “OH!”
AND IT DID A DOG THING. IT WENT AFTER THE– OH, YEAH,
AND THEN THERE WAS– WHEN WE WERE IN MOROK OH, YEAH, THERE
WERE THE DOGS AND A LOT OF CATS. SO WE HAD, LIKE, CAT CHAOS.>>Stephen: ARE THESE TRAINED
CATS OR WILD CATS?>>THESE ARE WILD CATS WITH THE
DOGS. SO THEN WE WOULD BE DOING A
SCENE AND, “CAT! CAT! CAT!”
AND THE DOGS WERE JUST LIKE BUT THE THING IS WITH THE DOGS, YOU
CAN’T JUST GRAB THE DOG BECAUSE IF YOU —
>>Stephen: RIGHT, BECAUSE… EXACTLY. YOU MIGHT ACTUALLY MAKE EYE
CONTACT. YES, UH-HUH.>>EXCITING TIMES.>>Stephen: YEAH. WE HAVE A CLIP HERE. THIS IS NOT THE HORSE? WHAT IS THIS? THIS IS THE MOTORCYCLE.>>YES.>>Stephen: THIS IS THE
MOTORCYCLE. WHAT’S GOG HERE?>>WE WANTED TO OPEN UP THE JOHN
WICK ACTION IN THE FILM. WE HAD SOME HORSES AND SOME
DOGS. AND NOW THE DIRECTOR HAD THE
IDEA OF NINJAS AND A MOTORCYCLE FIGHT.>>Stephen: SURE, OBVIOUSLY,
THAT’S A NATURAL.>>IT’S JOHN WICK, BABY!>>Stephen: COME ON. JIM. WICK IT. ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )

BILL AND TED ARE COMING BACK. ANYTHING WE CAN KNOW ABOUT–

“BILL AND TED FACE THE MUSIC.” AND WE’RE FINDING THEM HOWEVER
MANY YEARS LATER– I THINK IT’S OVER 25. AND THEY WERE SUPPOSED TO WRITE
THE SONG THAT WAS SUPPOSED TO UNITE THE WORLD AND BRING PEACE
AND EVERYTHING, BUT THEY HAVEN’T. AND SO WHAT HAS THAT DONE TO
THEM?>>Stephen: A LOT OF PRESSURE.>>IT’S A —
>>Stephen: LOT OF PRESSURE.>>PRESSURE. AND YOU’VE GOT YOUR FAMILY NOW,
BUT YOU’RE STILL TRYING TO WRITE THE SONG BECAUSE YOU HAVE TO
SAVE THE WORLD! BUT THEN THE FUTURE COMES DOWN
AND SAYS, “WELL, NO, YOU DON’T REALLY JUST HAVE TO SAVE THE
WORLD. YOU HAVE TO SAEFORT UNIVERSE,

  1. It's so cute, he actually seems like he's kind of nervous. Like his hands are shaking a bit. That's really refreshing considering how long he's been in this industry, that he doesn't take it for granted.

  2. Keanu work hard for the his family and I love you keanu more than anything baby you're looking so good to me and you are wonderful my love thank you so much

  3. Peoples made him looks awkward by saying things like sad Keanu sad Keanu and making memes pictures all over the internet and now Keanu trynna show that he's not sad and unfortunately he looks like a childish guy.. But then the real Keanu appears at the last question.. 😭😭

  4. it is most dumb scene in all movie but others action scenes are not behind too because seems that this assasins are ultra retarded

  5. IN THIS , KILLERLAND, ALL IS, WAS END WILL BE KILLL , WHATS NOT SAME NATIONALS… WE, ALBANY END CROAAAAAAAA.. WE WAS, ARE, WIIL BE DESTROID, ALLL FAMILY ., LIKE MODHER END SON, SISTER END BROTHERS.. END ALLLL CLOSE FAMILY…..WHERE ARE HUMAN RIGHTS?.. AZIL.. O , I MUST DO IT FOR MY FAMILY , IFF WE ARE SOOOOOOOOOOOO SMALLLLL PART OF FAMILY.. / ANOTHER WAS KILLED…. , ASC MEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!/ THATS SOO DIRTY JOB…..

  6. CEDO.. I WANT ALL THIS FOR YOUR FAMILY , LIKE MINE.. , TO ALL YOURS MEMBERS.. ITS A LONG KILLERS LISTTTTT …!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  7. What is happening in YouTube..?? Which ever Keanu Reeves video .. It seems like I have already seen them 25 times??? Come on YouTube.. Show me more new videos..

  8. If Keanu and I meet one day, we will have very deep conversations, about God, existence, universe, afterlife, freedom, destiny, oh my I can go on forever. Anyways, I’m sure we will be talking for hours if not days….basically we’ll have fun

  9. "I know that the ones who love us will miss us."
    He didn't say this because he knows people will miss him when he's gone. He said this because he misses everyone close to him that left him. You can see him processing the question at 9:53 and even has a lump in his throat when he speaks after it.

  10. 9:51 Greatest Ever Qoute Ever Said…
    Actually, I Can't Describe How Epic It Was When I Listen This 1st Time …………….and There Is Jim.

  11. I don’t like this host. He keeps interrupting and twisting his words to make him sound like he doesn’t know what he’s talking about. Don’t do that to the legend Keanu Reeves!!! 😡

  12. Hard to think of the dude from Bill and Ted's excellent adventure turns into a bad ass action hero.But with that aside I have so much respect for this down to earth humble man who didn't let Hollywierd change him.

  13. I feel like if Keanu Reeves did die on the movie set I think the whole world would erupt into chaos riots and all sorts of things and the suicide rates would rise to off the charts

    BUT!!

    Keanu Reeves will live forever so we’re fine

  14. It was method acted into reality, huh? You guys left robert posessed. This is your anxiety to being the nicest person in hollywood. Method actors. We want a stylized approach to learn from. A realisim form to live vicariously. Take control. You got it.

  15. After he said that quote, you can see he almost teared up as if he was thinking about the tragedies in his own Family. An answer that all of us can relate to.

  16. John wick wasnt really the boogeyman he was the guy you sent to kill the boogeyman sohe could easily kill freddy Jason michael with ease

  17. On point about Malinois, after taking a rescue and trying to help him, at 7yrs, he had so many issues he came with, he was a loose cannon. Mals are very primal, amazing dogs but not for ordinary people. They must have a 24hr job and do tend to bite handlers, owners, anyone eventually. They are the kind of dog that bites first, asks questions later.
