John Wick prequel The Continental gets new trailerPrime Video

A new trailer for John Wick spin-off series The Continental gives fans a fresh glimpse into the iconic hotel for assassins.

The three-part prequel series is set to explore the origin of the iconic hotel which acts as the centrepiece of the John Wick universe.

According to its synopsis, The Continental: From The World of John Wick
"will be seen through the eyes of a young Winston Scott, as he's dragged into the hellscape of 1970s 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 throne."

Ahead of its release on Prime Video on September 22, a new trailer for the programme transports fans to the 1970s as Winston (Colin Woodell), is dragged to the hotel to meet with its manager, Cormac, controversially played by Mel Gibson.

He is questioned by Cormac about the location of his brother, Frankie (Ben Robinson), who is seen shooting his way out of a vault. Winston is tasked with finding what he stole, or else Cormac threatens to bring down "the weight of this whole institution" on them both.

Plenty of action-packed scenes follow, with Winston and Frankie planning to assassinate Cormac and take The Continental for themselves.

The show features an all-star cast including Mishel Prada, Hubert Point-Du Jour, Nhung Kate, Jessica Allain, Ayomide Adegun, Jeremy Bobb and Peter Greene.

Woodell previously teased what people could expect from his character, saying in a statement: "We have all the producers from the films, so we have them overseeing and there is a really strict continuity to honour those and the style that they have in them.

"But what's also wonderful is, this is the '70s, so it is going to be stylistically different."

Way back in 2021, Lionsgate TV boss Kevin Beggs described the first season as "three essentially 90-minute events which you could construe as a limited series or a limited event series".

The Continental premieres on Prime Video on September 22. The previous John Wick movies are available to buy or rent on Prime Video, plus DVD, Blu-ray and 4K Ultra HD.
