In the first draft of John Wick, the assassin was described as someone who was skilled in working with old leather-bound books and book restoration. The moviemakers even filmed some scenes to show it, but those scenes never made it into the final version. They probably don’t want to soften the tough guy image of John Wick.
When asked about what happened before the events in the first film unfold, Keanu Reeves said, “John had a hobby and a vocation. That’s what he did. Best case, yes, his wife had passed, and that’s what he had decided to do once he got out after the impossible task, that was his vocation.”

3. Knives Out

All the potential suspects in Knives Out use iPhones. The only one who doesn’t is the culprit, Ransom.

Murder suspects are okay, but real killers are a big no-no with Apple.

Professor Lupin was exhausted and had to spend most of his train ride sleeping because he had just transformed the previous night. If you pay close attention to the date, you’ll find that the night before had been a full moon. Lupin must have spent all his strength during his transformation. That would explain how he could have been sleepy enough to endure the Dementor assault.
