After the screening of The Matrix Resurrections, fans can’t help to think if there will be another Matrix movie aka Matrix 5.
It took them over 10 years before the 4th Matrix movie was made and it is arguably the topic if there is going to be the 5th one. Even if there is going to be a next one, it will never happen.
Keanu Reeves said that The Matrix 5 will not be happening, The Matrix Resurrection performance was not exceptional and it fell short in the opening week. The movie has been released for 2 weeks and it’s box office so far is at about $71 million and still far away from profitable. The film’s budget was $190 million.
Keanu Reeves perhaps is not the best person to ask if there will be The Matrix 5 and the production company will most likely be the one with the answers or numbers ($$$).
Other movie critics claimed that the movie’s opening weekend was not well due to COVID-19 but it seems to be an excuse for the film’s poor performance as Spider-Man: No Way Home is not affected at all. Both the movies were released on the same day but Spider-man No Way Home has already reached over $1.1 billion in box office.
In an interview with Empire Magazine, Reeves shared his views on the possibility of another Matrix movie and said:
“I don’t believe so. If I had to cast a ballot- No, not a ballot, a vote. I would say that Lana would not do another Matrix.”
The Matrix Resurrections managed to get a score of 65% on rotten tomatoes which is considered not bad but the dollars and cents make more sense (no pun intended) for sequels of any films.
