It’s hard to believe The Matrix is 20 years old — aside from some late-1990s stylistic choices and its reliance on the ready availability of landlines, it somehow still feels futuristic. Soon, you’ll be able to revisit it on the big screen when the Wachowskis’ visually inventive cyber-thriller returns to theatres.
Aside from the fact that The Matrix genuinely holds up, the timing couldn’t be more serendipitous, what with the current Keanu Reeves renaissance (although, did he ever really leave us?) and the persistent but totally unconfirmed rumours that the Wachowskis might bring the series back one of these days.
Whatever comes of that, what we do know for certain is that the 20th anniversary will see The Matrix looking and sounding better than ever before. As Entertainment Weekly reports, the special engagement “can be experienced in Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos at more than 135 Dolby Cinema AMC locations” for a week starting August 30. Unfortunately, it's only in the U.S., but still, it's great to see The Matrix receiving more love after all these years.
Warner Bros. also released a special poster and teaser, via Entertainment Weekly, hyping The Matrix’s 20th anniversary.
Long live The Matrix!
