Fifth Matrix Film Announced!
« on: April 04, 2024, 09:25:45 am »
A fifth Matrix film has been announced to be in development!  I was high on the hype of Resurrections coupled with access to an early screening of it; however, I was lower on it after multiple viewings.   

Nonetheless, I'm excited that we get another chapter to the story.  Here's to hoping it's good!

The fact that someone else is writing/directing makes me a little more hopeful that it will be a fresh story inside the Matrix universe. I can't imagine them wanting to keep going the Resurrections direction...

I would love for the franchise to get rebooted properly and encourage more Matrix games and content to be made.

After letting the last movie settle, I was disappointed. Lots of ruined character arcs and missed opportunities. Sadly, the first act (as meta as it was) kind of worked and could have played out as a sort of psychological thriller... pushing forward the idea of not to make another 'stupid' action movie.

But, at this point corporate WB wants more money off this franchise. It's going to happen one way or another. Signing on a passionate writer could bring it some redeeming quality.

Don't believe everything you think.
