Matrix splashes out on final take
THERE are two months to wait, but here's a small taste for Matrix fans.
As this exclusive image from the third and final Matrix movie, Matrix Revolutions, shows, the action is as fast and furious as ever, with Neo (Keanu Reeves), again fighting an army of evil Agent Smiths (Hugo Weaving). The film, which was made in Sydney with the second in the trilogy, Matrix Reloaded, opens on November 7.
The first two in the trilogy, written and directed by the mysterious Wachowski brothers, Larry and Andy, broke Australian box office records.
The first, made $23.1 million and the second $33.4 million at the Australian box office.
According to producer Joel Silver, Matrix Revolutions is "an all-out war between the humans and the machines, and will blow minds".
"We have a 14-minute, $40 million battle scene that is the most complicated sequence ever put on film," he said.
