The premier of The Matrix Resurrections will be a grand event in the Bay Area, with Keanu Reeves leading guests and artists on stage. Carrie-Anne Moss and many more also stars as well. A fireworks display celebrates this movie’s release.
The Matrix Resurrections world premier took place in San Francisco and is confirmed by filmmaker Lana Wachowski to be a personal decision.
“I love San Francisco. I love this theater,” said the director to the media.
“I’ve seen so many important films here, and 27 years ago, when I was unsure about whether or not I was going to be able to be a filmmaker in my life, the Castro was where we had a premiere of Bound for the LGBTQ film festival Frameline. It was such an extraordinary experience, and that was a touchstone moment in my life. I thought it would be nice to come back here, give something back to the city, give some energy to the city and say thank you to the city. This theater seemed like the perfect place.”
The San Francisco Bay Area was transformed into a bustling metropolis for the night as locals and tourists alike lined up to catch a glimpse of their favorite celebrities. The street outside the Castro was blocked off. A Ducati motorcycle and a Mercedes-Benz wagon was seen before guests, crews, producers, directors and actors’ arrival.
The anticipation for the sequel is at an all-time high as fans have been waiting decades to see what would happen next. The last installment released changed action movies forever, so it’s only natural that people are excited about this new movie. This franchise was originally written by the Wachowski siblings, Lana and Lilly.
1999’s The Matrix, which was the first entry, reached a whopping $463 million earning worldwide; and then Reloaded surpassed that with a grand total of $741 million worldwide; lastly, Revolutions grossed $427 million earnings.
The Wachowskis have not planned on continuing the Matrix franchise. However after their parents’ death, Lana sought a way to appease this painful experience and found it in writing. She found a way to fit the new entry into the storyline of the franchise.
Lilly stepped aside and left Lana to work with David Mitchell, Cloud Atlas scribe; Aleksander Hemon collaborator of Sense8. She was occupied with Showtime’s Work In Progress.
