Here's Where You Can Stream Every Matrix Movie

(Welcome to Where to Watch, which provides a clear and simple answer to the question, "Hey, where can I watch this thing?" In this edition: the Matrix franchise.)The recent trailer for "The Matrix Resurrections" has stirred its fair share of reactions both positive and negative, including our own staff's mixed-positive opinion. Whichever way you went with it, if you're a fan of the over two-decade-old series it no doubt stirred some memberberries, and perhaps put you in the mood to enter The Mat...

The Matrix Resurrections Director Reveals Why She Resurrected Neo And Trinity In The Sequel

Everything we've seen from "The Matrix Resurrections" so far, as little as it is, has me completely ready for whatever filmmaker Lana Wachowski is set to throw our way. This sequel looks to be nothing like what fans could've ever expected or predicted from a legacy sequel to the original "The Matrix," which is exactly how a fourth film in this franchise should be. That includes bringing back Keanu Reeves' Neo and Carrie-Anne Moss' Trinity who, if you remember from "Revolutions," both sacrificed ...

The Matrix Resurrections Looks As Wild As The Sequels...Which Are Actually Good, Sorry

Have you recovered from that pulse-pounding "The Matrix Resurrections" trailer yet? No? Same here. Many of us thought this day would never come, but filmmaker Lana Wachowski is officially following the white rabbit and returning to the world of the original mind-bending classic. The three minutes of brand-new footage are full of hints and teases that demand thematic speculation and deep-dive breakdowns suggesting what's to come, but the particular blend of imagery, visuals, and tone on display a...

The Matrix Resurrections Trailer: It's Time To Go Back Into The Matrix

Get your leather trench coat out of storage, fire up some Rage Against the Machine, and get ready to plug back into the Matrix. "The Matrix Resurrections" will bring audiences back to the sci-fi world that blew all our minds in 1999, with Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss reuniting with director Lana Wachowski. But this isn't going to be a normal sequel, oh no. Things are a lot different here, with Keanu Reeves' inexplicably back in Thomas Anderson mode instead of maintaining his messiah-like pe...

The Matrix Resurrections Looks Like The Gremlins 2 Or Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 Of The Matrix Series, And That's Exciting

The trailer for "The Matrix Resurrections" is here, and it looks great. It also looks weird, and that's what has me truly excited for this sequel. It would've been very easy for director and co-writer Lana Wachowski to play it safe and more or less recycle ideas from the original trilogy. Instead, "The Matrix Resurrections" is taking a much different approach -- the type of approach taken by weird, misunderstood sequels like "Gremlins 2: The New Batch" and "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2." Those ...

The Story Of How The Wachowskis Landed The Matrix Is More Complex Than The Legend

With hype beginning to build for "The Matrix Resurrections," now is a good time to poke a hole in one of the biggest and most persistent myths about how writer/directors Lana and Lilly Wachowski convinced Warner Bros. to let them make the original 1999 movie. Let's lay out the legend behind the first film's creation and then get to the actual truth of how it got made. The Legend If you watched "The Matrix" in 1999 and were so blown away by it that you took to the Internet to find out everything ...

Here's Why Director Lilly Wachowski Didn't Return For The Matrix: Resurrections

Some great sibling directorial teams have been going their separate ways as of late: first, there were the Coen Brothers, and now the Wachowski Sisters, Lana and Lilly. The fourth "Matrix" movie announced its official title this week, "The Matrix: Resurrections," and it also debuted some trailer footage at CinemaCon. However, you won't see Lilly's name attached to the film, and now we have a better understanding of why.The Wachowskis co-directed the first three "Matrix" movies and have/had been ...

Female-Led ‘Plastic Man’ Movie in the Works at DC

‘The Matrix 4’: Lana Wachowski’s Filmmaking Will “Change the Industry Again”

‘Tenet’ Takes No. 1 at the Box Office as the Lowest-Grossing Chart Topper in 32 Years

If a movie makes it to No. 1 at a box office during a pandemic, does it make a sound? Because the fate of the Autumn movie slate and struggling cinemas depend on the box office success of Tenet, it kind of does. But right now, it’s just a quiet thump. Christopher Nolan’s espionage film led a mild U.S. box office this past weekend, earning $3.4 million in its fourth weekend. That gives Tenet the unusual distinction of being the lowest-grossing chart topper in 32 years, since David Cronenberg’s D...

‘The Matrix’ Cinematographer Blames Stanley Kubrick for Why the Sequels Are So “Mind-Numbing”

It can’t be understated how hugely influential the Wachowski’s The Matrix was. Many a film after it tried (and often failed) to imitate its look, its tone, its groundbreaking visual effects. And the man responsible for the stylish look of the 1999 sci-fi film was cinematographer Bill Pope, who would go on to shoot the film’s much-maligned sequels The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions to less than satisfactory results. There are a lot of things that can singled out for the reasons of Th...

This Is What The Matrix Looks Like Without CGI: A Special Effects Breakdown

Those of us who saw the The Matrix in the theater felt we were witness to the beginning of a new era of cinematically and philosophically ambitious action movies. Whether that era delivered on its promise — and indeed, whether The Matrix's own sequels delivered on the franchise's promise — remains a matter of debate. More than twenty years later, the film's black-leather-and-sunglasses aesthetic may date it, but its visual effects somehow don't. The Fame Focus video above takes a close l...

‘The Matrix 4’: Joe Pantoliano Really Wants to Return as Cypher

Joe Pantoliano really wants to be in The Matrix 4. The actor starred in the 1999 The Matrix as the treacherous Cypher, but hasn’t received the call from Lana Wachowski, who returns to direct the long-awaited The Matrix 4, which brings back original trilogy stars Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss. Despite that — and the fact that his character kind of kicked the bucket in the first film — Pantoliano has put in several calls to Wachowski with his ideas how Cypher can return. It seems like ever...

Joe Pantoliano on Working With Tom Cruise, Being Directed by Steven Spielberg, and More [Interview]

Joe Pantoliano, affectionately known as “Joey Pants” to many, wears his roles like few others from his generation. His breakout role was in 1983’s Risky Business , with the indelible role of “Guido the Pimp”, and from there he consistently made films and shows better with his very appearance. He often plays wise-cracking, quick-to anger characters bemused by the idiocy around him, and it’s this acerbic yet intelligent takes that leap off the screen. Midnight Run saw him spend much of the mo...
