- They’ve decided: “Matrix” stars Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss will premiere the latest installment of their science-fiction saga in Toronto.
- According to Warner Bros. Pictures Canada, the Canadian leads of “The Matrix Resurrections” will give the country its first look at the film on December 16.
Reeves and Moss reprise their roles from 1999’s “The Matrix,” in which Reeves’ character Neo is given the option of taking one of two pills: one that reveals a simulated reality known as the Matrix, or one that returns him to a dream world.
The fourth movie in the series, “The Matrix Resurrections,” also stars Neil Patrick Harris, Priyanka Chopra Jonas, and Jada Pinkett Smith. Fans can enter to get a trip to the premiere by scanning movie-branded Q.R. codes placed at different businesses in Calgary, Edmonton, Winnipeg, Halifax, Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto, and Vancouver, according to Warner Bros.
The contest ends on December 5, but fans can scan the Q.R. codes until December 20 to be entered to win passes to see the film on Imax when it opens on December 22.
Keanu Reeves is the perfect energy for the role of forlorn alien scientist Norrin Radd, the man who saved his homeworld of Zenn-La from the cosmic entity Galactus’ hunger. Radd sacrificed himself to the Devourer of Worlds to save his world, who remade him as the Silver Surfer, his herald.
Keanu is 57 years old, so he is just the right age to not only play the esteemed scientist in human form for one film but also to voice him/do motion capture for the character for a decade or more. Keanu was often referred to as a “surfer bro” in the 1990s. So let’s bring it full circle and make him the galaxy’s surfer, bro.
