Peacock today released the official trailer for The Continental, the three-part prequel to the John Wick action franchise.
The Continental is set to explore the origin story and inner workings of the exclusive Continental Hotel, told from the perspective of the hotel manager, a young Winston Scott (Colin Woodell, based on Ian McShane’s character in the films), who gets dragged through 1975 New York to face a past he thought he’d left behind. In an attempt to seize control of the iconic hotel, which serves as a meeting point for the world’s most dangerous criminals, Winston charts a deadly course through the mysterious underworld of New York City.
