It’s fair to say that Keanu Reeves doesn’t have a good track record when it comes to public transport. After all, in 1994’s Speed, the action hero plays a cop aboard a bus that’s doomed to detonate if it slows below 50 mph. And in 2019 the actor experienced another vehicle-related disaster – only this time, it was all too real. Reeves was on a flight to California in March, when his aircraft suddenly encountered a problem. But the Matrix star’s actions shocked his fellow passengers.

Keanu Reeves has certainly starred in his fair share of big blockbusters and famous franchises since the start of his career in the 1980s. As well as Speed, he has taken lead roles in 1991’s Point Break, the Bill & Ted films, the Matrix trilogy, 2008’s The Day the Earth Stood Still and the John Wick series – to name but a few. And often, the actor’s movies see him portraying heroic characters who are destined to be saviors.

And Reeves’ bright light doesn’t look as though it will dim any time soon. The actor has several big projects on the way, in fact. John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum is due to be released in May 2019, for instance, and Bill & Ted Face the Music has begun production for a 2020 release date. Plus, the Canadian will be lending his voice to Toy Story 4, which is also scheduled to hit theaters in 2019.
