Advance Book Review: For Your Consideration: Keanu Reeves

For Your Consideration: Keanu Reeves

Larissa Zageris and Kitty Curran’s new illustrated book of essays/biography/fan fiction For Your Consideration: Keanu Reeves doesn’t come out until October, but my reading of it timed perfectly with the announcement of the fourth Matrix film and the end of filming Bill and Ted Face the Music. Keanu Reeves is the Internet’s boyfriend, has three film franchises (Matrix, Bill and Ted, John Wick), and resisted Disney/Marvel’s siren call. So, it’s the perfect time to look back at his career, see why he was loved and derided, and maybe even why he is more aspirational than any self-help guru.

Zageris and Curran structure For Your Consideration: Keanu Reeves like a series of essays looking at different aspects of Keanu Reeves’ career with fun extras like trivia and a quiz about which character named “John” played by Reeves you are (I was John Constantine.). There’s also a spaghetti Western-style fan fiction about what he was up to in the two year gap between Devil’s Advocate (1997) and The Matrix (1999), and best of all, a pitch for a romantic comedy/musical spinoff of John Wick set in Paris and co-starring Charlize Theron and Winona Ryder.

The five essays cover a range of topics from how Reeves’ vulnerable approach to acting clashed with some critics and endeared fans, his identity as Asian-American/Canadian man, his hard-working approach to his acting craft, his collaborations with both actors and business partners, and finally, one about his roles that fall on the “evil” side of the spectrum. A repeated theme is how Reeves’ main goal as an actor is to create a pocket reality for audiences to project themselves on them. He does this by working tirelessly at different skills his characters have (The eight months of kung fu training for The Matrix, surfing dangerous areas in Kauai for Point Break.) and also actively listening to his scene partners and not having his performance overwhelm theirs. Zageris and Curran state that this quality is why actresses like Sandra Bullock and Winona Ryder want to work with him multiple times, and Bullock saying his kindness to her and rapport in Speed helped ease her into the world of show business.

However, what makes For Your Consideration go beyond just a blow by blow recap/analysis of Keanu Reeves’ 30+ year career is Larissa Zageris and Kitty Curran using him as a vehicle to explore American society’s changing ideals of masculinity, the role of the Internet and celebrity, and how Reeves may have even paved the way for Asian-American representation in pop culture though he mainly plays white-passing roles. They discuss about how Reeves’ body is filmed like a female actor in some of his movies, and the similarities of how critics talk about his acting like assuming just because he played an airhead slacker in the Bill and Ted films that he was one and focusing on his looks and not his ability. As far as action movies, Zageris and Curran write about how Reeves’ earnest approach and emotional openness in films like Point Break and Speed set him apart from the machismo and smartassery of actors like Arnold Schwarzenegger and Bruce Willis.

At times, For Your Consideration: Keanu Reeves veers from being a work of cultural and film criticism with jokes to being almost a straight-up, self-help book with Keanu Reeves being held up as an example of how we should be. This goes beyond his characters’ mantras of “Be excellent” and Internet memes of calling people breathtaking and warm, vulnerable stories about how he uses Shakespeare monologues to stay calm and would rather read a book than be a celebrity.

Some of the self-help bits pop up in the chapter about collaboration that discusses how Reeves acts as if he’s in a supporting role even he is a leading man and praises his co-stars in interviews instead of talking about himself. The chapter also shows that he isn’t afraid to pursue his passions like bookmaking and motorcycle design and that his approach to these businesses mirrors his work with Chad Stahelski, who went from being his stunt double on The Matrix to directing him in all three John Wick films. There is a quote about Reeves’ dedication to learning fight choreography, gunplay, etc so that Stahelski has a full range of creative choices instead of cutting around him. (Basically, he was throwing shade on the Taken movies.)

Even if there isn’t enough space to go into detail of each and every Keanu Reeves role, Larissa Zageris and Kitty Curran perform an excellent close reading of Keanu Reeves the actor and human being with funny spot illustrations like a “human evolution” chart from Theodore Logan to John Wick, bearded badass. It isn’t a total hagiography with some critiques of Reeves’ accent work and deadpan descriptions of some of his “weirder” film choices like Bad Batch and Knock Knock, which I want to track down. However, it’s an appreciation of actor, who wants to take audiences on heroic (or anti-heroic) journeys into the world with him not just as a guide, but as someone they can identify with and walk out of the theater playing air guitar, doing kung fu, killing a man with a pencil, or maybe just hugging one’s beloved pooch a little tighter.

John Wick Comes Out Guns Blazing to Take Out the Avengers

John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum

Something eventually had to unseat Avengers: Endgame from the top of the box office, and it was John Wick that did it. John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum was the top of the box office with a better than expected $57 million. The film was a crowd favorite receiving an “A-” CinemaScore from the opening day audience. The film “debuted” with a $5.9 million Thursday night preview which is the largest for Lionsgate behind Twilight and the Hunger Games franchises. It’s more than double the $2.2 million John Wick: Chapter 2 earned two years ago.

Parabellum continues the trend of the movie franchise improving upon itself showing it has been gaining an audience over the years. The debut, John Wick, earned $14.4 million opening weekend going on to gross $43 million ($46.7 million adjusted for inflation) domestically in 2014. Worldwide, that film earned $88.8 million. John Wick: Chapter 2 opened with $30.4 million and went on to gross $92 million ($93.8 million adjusted for inflation) domestically and $171.5 million worldwide. John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum has almost out-earned the second film having already made $149.2 million worldwide (it has earned $92.2 million at the foreign box office).

With that success, there’s little doubt we’ll be seeing John Wick: Chapter 4 before too long.

In second place was Avengers: Endgame which earned $29.4 million after four weeks. Domestically, the film has earned $770.8 million and has passed Avatar to be the second highest grossing film domestically. Star Wars: The Force Awakens has the top honor having earned $936.7 million in 2015. It’s unlikely Avengers: Endgame will pass it. Worldwide, Endgame now stands at $2.615 billion putting it about $174 million behind Avatar to become the highest grossing film worldwide. There’s a chance it’ll pass it but will have to rely on the foreign box office to do so.

Detective Pikachu came in third place and expanded its theater count. It earned an estimated $24.8 million to bring its domestic total to $94 million. The film has earned $112.4 million at the foreign box office. That brings the worldwide total to $112.4 million after two weeks. With a budget of $150 million, it does have a bit to go to get in the profitable realm. It currently ranks fourth domestically when it comes to video game adaptations

In fourth place was the debut of A Dog’s Journey. The film earned an estimated $8 million. That film received an “A” Cinemascore from audiences and should have a nice run as a family friendly film.

Rounding out the top five was The Hustle which earned $6.1 million to bring its total to $23.1 million.

When it comes to comic films….

Captain Marvel dropped to #14 from #11 earning $727,000 after 11 weeks at the box office. The film stands at $425.1 million domestically.

Shazam! was right behind Captain Marvel coming in at #15. The previous week the film was #12. It earned $681,000 to bring its domestic total to $137.9 million after seven weeks.

Stay tuned, we’ll be back in an hour for a deeper dive look at this year and last year’s comic adaptations.
