Matrix 4: “This is a gift. It was just very exciting.” | Carrie-Anne Moss

Published

on

It was 2003, nearly two decades since the last time we saw Carrie-Anne Moss and Keanu Reeves grace the screen in the sci-fi epic ‘Matrix Revolutions,’ as  the computer hacker Trinity and the anomaly known as Neo. The Matrix trilogy is in my opinion, one of the greatest sci-fi action epics ever created. ‘Revolutions,’ gave us a somewhat definitive ending to the trilogy, having the heroes sacrificing it all to save humanity from impending doom at the hands of machines.

Fast forward to present day, we are all waiting with high anticipation for the fourth installment to a trilogy that was all but one hundred percent concluded. The Wachowski’s originally stated, there would never be a fourth movie. And that the Matrix franchise ended the way they intended. But, now armed with a new, beautiful script, Lana Wachowski convinced original stars, Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss that a fourth film needed to be made and tell a new story that would be relevant to issues plaguing our society today. In a recent interview with Empire Magazine, Moss explained what brought her back to the franchise.

“When it was brought to me in the way that it was brought to me, with incredible depth and all of the integrity and artistry that you could imagine, I was like, ‘This is a gift.’ It was just very exciting.”

Keanu went on to second Moss’s statements, saying that the script is what brought him back for a fourth film. As well as the opportunity to work with Lana again.

“Lana Wachowski wrote a beautiful script and a wonderful story that resonated with me,” Reeves added. “That’s the only reason to do it. To work with her again is just amazing. It’s been really special, and the story has, I think, some meaningful things to say, and that we can take some nourishment from.”

Lana Wachowski has decided to mostly direct all the action scenes herself. “John Wick” directors Chad Stahelski and David Leitch were stunt coordinators on the original Matrix film and had this to say about Lana’s work on the new installment.

“What makes [Lana] so great is she directs her own action,” Stahelski said. “We’ve had second unit directors on some of the [‘Matrix’ films] just because of the logistics involved. But of late, and especially on ‘Matrix 4,’ she’s directing her own action. The second units for them are mostly establishing shots, the B-sides of the some of the compositions for some locations. But Lana, she does her own action. She weaves it into the main unit stuff, which is why their stuff looks so good.”

Warner Bros. is scheduled to release “The Matrix 4” in theaters nationwide May 21, 2021.

Tenet: What Is It And When Is It Out?

Published

on

What is TENET?

‘Tenet’ is the new film from director Christopher Nolan (The Dark Knight Trilogy, Inception, Interstellar) starring John David Washington, Robert Pattinson and Kenneth Branagh. In terms of plot, very little is known about ‘Tenet’ but the plot synopsis reads as follows: “Armed with only one word — Tenet — and fighting for the survival of the entire world, the Protagonist journeys through a twilight world of international espionage on a mission that will unfold in something beyond real time.” Given that it’s Christopher Nolan, we know to expect something strange to do with time or non-linear storytelling but we just don’t quite know what…yet. Boasting a budget rumored to be over $200 million, ‘Tenet’ was filmed in seven countries around the world and includes some extraordinary action set pieces, including crashing a real 747 plane into a building (with no CGI)! It certainly promises to be a thrill ride that you don’t want to miss in cinemas.

When is Tenet out?

‘Tenet’ is scheduled to come out on July 17 but given COVID-19, many fans have been wondering if it will sadly get delayed. According to the film’s social accounts, it is still scheduled for July 17 but what’s interesting is that on the new trailer that dropped on May 22, rather than putting the film’s release date at the end, the trailer ended with the words “Coming to Theaters” which implies that the July 17 date isn’t firmly set in stone. It seems that Warner Bros. are aiming for July 17 but if cinemas aren’t open yet in big cities such as Los Angeles or New York, they may have to delay it to later on in the summer. But the film will definitely be released in cinemas as that’s something Christopher Nolan is very keen on. It certainly won’t be released on streaming and you will have to go to a cinema if you want to see it, it just depends on if that’s in the middle of July or later on in the summer once cinemas reopen.

Why is this film so important?

TENET is such an important film as it will be one of the first films to be released theatrically for months. The only film scheduled for release before Tenet is ‘Unhinged’ starring Russell Crowe, due to be released on July 1, but that seems a bit optimistic. Other than ‘Unhinged,’ ‘Tenet’ will be the first film shown in cinemas once they re-open and if ‘Tenet’ is a success and people return to cinemas, other summer blockbusters such asMulan’ and ‘Wonder Woman 1984 can be released. 

Will you be going to see Tenet in cinemas on July 17?
