Keanu Reeves cannot be accused of not putting in the hours for the third installment of his hyper-violent John Wick action series, as new footage shows the level of detail in his training.

Videos released by security training company Vigilance Elite show Reeves being coached by a former US Navy Seal as he simulates entering and clearing rooms armed with a pistol and an assault rifle.

Watch them in action here.

Shawn Ryan, a former CIA contractor who founded Vigilance Elite, teaches Reeves about handling weapons and tactics as the pair work through a gun range full of targets and barriers.

The John Wick films see Reeves play a former assassin who returns to the criminal underworld after gangsters steal his car and kill his dog.

According to his website, Ryan fought against al Qaida, the Taliban and the Islamic State group before founding Vigilant Elite to train:

“those who want to learn to defend themselves and their families against imminent threats."

The videos also give an insight into the mindset of the training.

Showing Reeves how to deal with an unexpected individual when entering a room, Ryan says:

“Maybe it's an innocent who doesn't need to be shot, maybe I can strike and get them out of the way."

Fans were overjoyed to see Reeves take the training seriously.

Said one:

“So much respect for Keanu Reeves for actually putting in the work to make us gun owners and shooters happy with his movies for trying to make stuff legit and real looking."

Another added:

“I love how he listens and doesn't talk your head off… great student. He's a rare bird in Hollywood.. love that guy! Zero ego; all business! Can't wait for JW3!"

A similar video emerged in 2016 during the production of John Wick 2, which saw Reeves working quickly through a range, using an assault rifle and shotgun to take out his targets.

They say that some of the greatest comedy springs from the greatest tragedy.

And that sentiment is most certainly true when it comes to Stephen Colbert.

While many know the comedian as a smart, funny, and charismatic late night personality from critically acclaimed shows like The Daily Show, The Colbert Report, and The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, it may come as a surprise that Colbert has dealt with an incredible amount of loss in his life.

Full confession, my closest friends often tell me I'm the dumbest genius they know. I breezed through school, handle advanced concepts with ease - and I spent ten minutes looking for my phone in the dark by using the flashlight app on my phone. The saddest part is I didn't even realize how dumb I was being on my own. I tried to recruit my ten-year-old to help me and she just stood there staring at the phone in my hand with the sort of silent pre-teen judgy face you see in sitcoms.

We look at them and can't help but feel... they just need a little friendly shove into the fun. Not so. Often they are perfectly content in their quiet company of one. Many do have a crippling social anxiety that can drive them to some interesting predicaments when they are thrust into a public situation.
