Keanu Reeves looked handsome as he arrived at a special screening of his new film John Wick: Chapter 4 on Wednesday in New York City.
The 58-year-old actor was joined on the red carpet by a new addition to the franchise, Rina Sawayama, and alum Bridget Moynahan as they celebrated the newest installment of the John Wick films.
Keanu sported a classic look for the big night, which featured a well-fitted black suit with a blue and white striped tie and brown shoes.
He wore his iconic black locks down to his shoulders and grew out his salt and pepper beard.
The actor, who is known for playing the titular character in the John Wick films as well as the leading role in The Matrix films, was accompanied at the premiere by other actors and creative members of the film.

Ladies: Rina Sawayama and Bridget Moynahan joined Keanu on the carpet
Rina, 32, opted for a red dress with a boxy top and a corseted waist. It also featured two separate patterns.
The top of the dress had large shoulder pads that extended out far, so the sleeves were rigid. It then flowed down into a tight waist and continued to flow back out into a boxier skirt.
She wore her dark hair up in a very short ponytail and went for a simple makeup look with a pop of rouge on her lips.
The Beg For You hitmaker will star as an assassin named Akira, but other information about her character has been kept relatively under wraps.
Also on the carpet was actress Bridget Moynahan, 51, who was in the first two John Wick films and played Keanu’s wife who was murdered.
The Coyote Ugly star kept her look very simple with a black t-shirt tucked into a pair of black trousers and matching black shoes.
She also wore a pair of thick-rimmed black glasses on her relatively makeup-free face and accessorized with a simple pair of stud earrings and a bracelet.
This film will mark her first endeavor in the acting world, after already dominating the music scene with her hit album Hold The Girl.
