Lionsgate has partnered with IGN and Fandango to live stream John Wick on Friday, May 8th beginning at 6:00 pm Pacific/9:00 pm Eastern. The movie will be streamed in its entirety via each partner’s YouTube channel as well as via the Lionsgate Movies YouTube page. The event is part of the Lionsgate LIVE! A Night at the Movies initiative that supports theater employees who have been laid off during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Previous installments in the series include La La Land, Dirty Dancing, and The Hunger Games.
It’s worth noting that viewers will need to log in to an account to verify their age as the stream is age-gated to users 18-years-old and above. In addition, the stream will only be available in the US and Canada.
The movie stream will be hosted by Jamie Lee Curtis and will also see several of the movie’s stars interviewed ahead of the showing. Actors include Keanu Reeves, Halle Berry, Lance Reddick, Asia Kate Dillon, and both directors, David Leitch and Chad Stahelski.
During the stream, viewers will have an opportunity to donate to support furloughed theater workers with proceeds benefitting the Will Rogers Motion Picture Pioneers Foundation.
About John Wick
When sadistic young thugs senselessly attack John Wick (Keanu Reeves) – a brilliantly lethal ex-assassin – they have no idea they’ve messed with the wrong guy. With New York City as his bullet-riddled playground, Wick embarks on a merciless rampage, hunting down his adversaries with the skill and ruthlessness that made him an underworld legend.
