Well from what I've seen it looks ok, too short to tell anything about the film.

Yeah, just a teaser. Apparently they are releasing the next two films very soon after each other? Couple of months or something.

Cool :smoke:

Yes - the plan is to release both sequels in 2003 separated by something like 3-6 months. Bit like how they're doing the LOTR Trilogy releases.

I loved The Matrix, it was one of those films that seems to have changed how subsequent sci-fi/fantasy/action films are made/produced. So many post-Matrix films owe something to it.

Except the LOTR stuff is a year. Not 3 months.

That's a shit 100-0.

Funkodrom

It is a bit crap.

FunkyFingers

Don't care, you fell for it, sucker :lol:

Venom
16-05-2002, 14:40:19
Still a shit attempt. And make sure you feel real proud of 100-0ing me. That makes you as big an idiot as I am.

Any more news on the new Matrix Films?

Venom
03-07-2002, 15:35:31
They released a poster to movie theaters a day or 2 ago. Nothing special. Just the green matrix code with a 2003 release date.

FunkyFingers
03-07-2002, 15:36:15
2003? Another whole fricking year to wait? Bah. :bash:

Venom
03-07-2002, 15:37:14
Sucks, doesn't it? Though the sword fighting matrix style should be sweet.

FunkyFingers
03-07-2002, 15:41:28
Swords? Cool...
"i know kung-fu with swords"

Sean

I can wait for these to be released to video. The first one is over-rated.

FunkyFingers

The Matrix is one of my all-time favourite Sci-fi films.

Venom
03-07-2002, 16:44:52
The Matrix is highly enjoyable. I'm not sure it deserved all the accolades that some bestowed upon it, but it's definitely a very good film. And yes Funky...kung fu with swords. Looks pretty sweet even though the trailer I saw only showed about 3 seconds of it.

FunkyFingers
03-07-2002, 16:46:48
Excellent.

There are only three or four films after which I have left the cinema a changed man: 'The Matrix' was one such. It was a staggering experience.

Sean
03-07-2002, 22:36:54
How did The Matrix change you?

Sean
03-07-2002, 22:37:20
Apart from realising that no, Keanu will never top Bill and Ted.

FunkyFingers

I thought that the Matrix did a fantastic job of creating a whole new universe, excellent characters and it's whole own style and folklore. Sure, you can pick holes in it and analyze it to the nth degree if you want to, but ultimately it's a very effective, very enjoyable, clever, original sci-fi film. It set a new standard for how to do things IMHO.

The thing that let it down for me was the human batteries thing. That just doesn't make sense. Other than that brilliant film. I really liked it.

Sean
04-07-2002, 10:27:45
I just didn’t see it setting any new standards. Great action movie, but it was hardly ground-breaking.

FunkyFingers
04-07-2002, 10:50:58
Are you sure you've actually watched it?

Sean
04-07-2002, 10:53:49
Twice fully through and a further couple of times in bits.

Venom

8 days before Memorial Day is when the first sequel is due out. According to CNN.

Funkodrom
10-07-2002, 15:44:19
When's Memorial day?

FunkyFingers
10-07-2002, 15:53:43
4th of July?

Funkodrom
10-07-2002, 15:57:09
OG? That's independence day.

Venom
10-07-2002, 16:17:32
Memorial Day is in the end of May. Last Monday in May I think. So that makes the release somewhere around May 17.

Venom
10-07-2002, 16:39:28
Ok the exact date is May 15.

Sean
10-07-2002, 16:45:44
So it was just under a year away when they started showing the trailer? They must be getting desperate.

Venom
10-07-2002, 17:03:44
They're just trying to get the hype machine rolling.

Sean
10-07-2002, 17:06:20
We call it the gravy train.

Venom
10-07-2002, 17:43:24
I call it the Crazy Train.

Funkodrom
11-07-2002, 08:30:22
If they start hyping football matches is it the different gravy train?

FunkyFingers
11-07-2002, 13:07:27
It's A different gravy train.

Sean
11-07-2002, 13:08:24
The Audley Harrison gravy train rolled on last night. I can’t wait for him to be beaten.

FunkyFingers
11-07-2002, 13:09:03
Beaten up?

More info...


Producer Joel Silver spoke with Empire magazine and revealed where things were at this stage of the production. What Silver said also revealed more clues about what we can expect from the sequels:

Silver said the events in Reloaded and Revolutions apparently take place over the period of 24 hours. "It is one enormous movie that's being cut in half," he said.

Empire also likened the new female characters played by Monica Belluci, Jada Pinkett-Smith and Nona Gaye as "warriors in the PVC-clad Trinity mould."

Apparently the majority of Reloaded is set in the Matrix itself, much like the original film. Neo will be discovering new abilities described as "superhero" powers as well as the ability to see different levels and programs existing within the Matrix environment.

Revolutions will primarily take place in the real world, with machines terrorizing Zion.

Silver also revealed that the Wachowskis are just about to start filming an extremely complex scene that will last about 14 minutes in one of the two movies. The Matrix producer described it as "The most complicated sequence ever put on film."
"I really think the bar has been raised so high, that there is no bar."


Interesting...

Matrix was great on big screen. But that's because it's such a FX flick. On the small screen, it's not very interesting.

Venom

Thanks for that constructive comment.

Oh, and buy a bigger TV.

Darkstar

60" isn't big enough? Well, not for the Matrix.

I liked the action in the first movie. The philosophy went in one ear and out the other.

Funkodrom
01-08-2002, 07:11:41
Philosophy?

Fistandantilus
01-08-2002, 09:04:20
Yes philosophy.
Like this:
"You know why everything tastes like chicken?"
"Cause the Matrix couldn't figure out what some things taste like"

I love that line. :D
