This time around, we worked closely with them on this first-to-market program that engages and immerses fans and their love of the John Wick franchise and specifically John Wick Chapter 4 – and it became a strategic throughline for our campaign,” said Dani Otero, SVP Global Paid Media & Analytics At Lionsgate.
