This Day In Film: The Matrix

matrix3Eleven years ago today, The Matrix opened in theaters nationwide changing the trajectory of sci-fi films forever. Staring Keanu Reeves and Laurence Fishburne, the Wachowski brothers flick captivated the globe with it’s philosophical plot line — humans are being controlled by robots and living in a fake world known as the Matrix. This false reality must be destroyed and “The One” is the only person who can accomplish this task.

Originally, The Matrix seemed like an implausible idea. A-list stars like Nicolas Cage, Sean Connery, Sandra Bullock and Will Smith all turned down roles. However, when the film hit theaters it was showered with rave reviews and ended up racking in over 460 million dollars nationwide. In addition, The Matrix won four Academy Awards for sound, editing and visuals.

Two more followed, none equaling the critical or box office success as the original. Nonetheless, the series continued with a diverse cast which included Jada Pinkett Smith, Mary Alice, Nona Gay, Roy Jones, Jr. and even Cornell West.

The Matrix is an undeniable classic. Check out the clip below.

I have been a fan since its release! All three are outstanding. Much props given to the Sistah that created the Matrix trilogy, I am glad that she finally got her day in court! I still watch them whenever it is televised!

Free your mind!!
