Following the Superbowl television spot for John Wick: Chapter 4, which was meant to kick off Wick Week, the fourth film’s runtime has finally been unveiled. Per Collider, Chapter 4 reportedly clocks in at 2 hours and 49 minutes. That would make it the longest film in the franchise to date. This, of course, shouldn’t be shocking as director Chad Stahelski promised the newest installment would be the longest one yet.
We wrote a longer movie. We wrote a bigger movie. We wrote a longer script. We wrote at least a third more scenes than the last one. We expect it to be more. We’ve always expected it to be more. And I think the test, or at least what we’re judging ourselves by, is that worth it with how we executed what we want it to be more or not? And I think the answer’s yes.Stahelski to Collider
For comparisons sake, the first John Wick movie clocked in at 101 minutes. While its sequel, John Wick: Chapter 2, clocked in at 122 minutes, and John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum ran 131 minutes. With a reported run time of 169 minutes, Chapter 4 continues the franchise’s trend of bigger sequels.
