It’s good that we will see the expansion of the stories of the movies that felt ‘incomplete.’ The real trouble lies in making the ‘deserving’ sequel without ruining the legacy of any movie.
In this article, we will discuss the Matrix 4 Release Date, plot, the cast members, and other exciting information. If you are ready to know the latest updates and rumors about this project, make sure to read the article till the end.
Matrix 4 Release Date: What’s the Matrix Franchise?
The science fiction genre has an audience base of millions across the globe. Making a perfect sci-fi action movie with a perfect combination of every ingredient like the cast, exciting story, and top-notch VFX is a tough challenge.
Not everyone gets them all right. That’s where The Matrix Trilogy triumphs over others. No surprise that the producers are toying with the idea of the sequel.
The Wachowskis, aka the Wachowski Brothers, directed the original The Matrix movie trilogy. The same brothers wrote the story. Joel Silver was the producer of the franchise.
The movie stars the iconic trio of Keanu Reeves, Lawrence Fishburne, and Carrie-Anne Moss. The first movie from the franchise was released in 1999, and the remaining two were released in 2003 within an interval of a few months.
Matrix Trilogy: The Audience Response
The first movie was made with a budget of $63 million, and it grossed a worldwide income of $460 million. The remaining two films from the series were produced with a massive production budget of $150 million each. They did a fantastic job at the Box Office.
The second movie, The Matrix Reloaded, was such a massive success that it earned the highest-grossing R-rated film title. The movie collected $740 million all over the world.
The fun fact is, this title of highest-grossing R-rated movie was held by Reloaded for almost a thirteen year-long period. Deadpool later replaced it. The third movie, The Matrix Revolutions, was a superhit as well. It bagged $427 million eventually.
Matrix 4 Release Date: Official Updates
As per our information, the film was supposed to be released on May 21, 2021, but due to the current COVID – 19 pandemic, it will be released on April 1, 2022.
If we consider various factors, we hope that the filming crew does manage to complete the filming in time. If they do that, it will be released exactly on April 1, 2021, if not earlier.
The filming of the movie was started in San Francisco with a pseudonym, ‘Project Ice Cream.’ However, the citizens had complained about the irritation caused due to filming. There are some parts of the movie that will be shot in Germany and Chicago.
Cast Members, Production and Direction
Earlier, both Wachowski Brothers did the direction work on the Trilogy. This time though, only Lana Wachowski will be directing this project. Warner Bros. Pictures is producing this project with Village Roadshow Pictures.
Regarding the cast, the leading duo- Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss are returning as Neo and Trinity for the fourth part. However, we don’t think Morpheus, played by Lawrence Fishburne, will make a comeback.
As far as another familiar character from the previous movies is concerned, we will get to see Lambert Wilson as the Merovingian. There are going to be some new faces like Neil Patrick Harris and Priyanka Chopra Jonas in this film.
Since the direction is in the hands of one of Wachowskis, we are sure that justice will be delivered to the Trilogy’s legacy.
What is Possible Plot?
The plot details are currently not revealed by anyone related to the project. There are questions like what will be the fourth movie’s story? Are we going to see Morpheus in it or not? Is Lawrence Fishburne part of the project, or will he be replaced by someone else?
Since we don’t want to spoil the ending of previous movies, even after 16 years, we can only say the film is almost like going to be a prequel or reimagining.
The movie didn’t have much scope after the end of the third movie, but it’s going to be worth waiting for the new film to see how the makers write the new story. And no, the trailer isn’t out yet. If it is released officially, we will inform you quickly.
The wait for knowing Matrix 4 Release Date is over. We know it will be most likely released on April 1, 2022. However, we can’t be a hundred percent sure due to the current pandemic situation.
We are glad that the original duo: Neo and Trinity are back for the sequel. We don’t know about Morpheus/Lawrence Fishburne at the moment. It will be fun watching Keanu playing Neo on-screen after almost two decades.
