The Enquirer takes a sneak peek at… The Matrix Reloaded
One of Hollywood's hottest sci-fi thrillers will soon be back on the big screen, with two exciting sequels to "The Matrix" scheduled for release in 2003 -- and The ENQUIRER is giving you a sneak peek at what's in store.
In "The Matrix Reloaded" and "The Matrix Revolution," Keanu Reeves' heroic character Neo rejoins Laurence Fishburne's Morpheus and Carrie-Anne Moss' Trinity, in the continuing struggle for survival in the 22nd century. The courageous trio and their crew roam the last human city of Zion, battling machines that have enslaved the human race in the Matrix:
"The sequel carves a continuation of Neo's journey and his quest to find out the truth," said Reeves, whose amazingly agile character flies, dodges bullets and runs up walls to escape he bad guys.
"The kung fu sequences are more sophisticated and more challenging than the first film. It's pushed me to my limits."
"The Matrix Reloaded" is due for release in summer 2003. "The Matrix Revolutions" is due out only months later, in November.
