Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss come out with dark glasses. In theaters this December 22, “Matrix Resurrections” by Lana Wachowski continues the franchise 18 years after the 3rd opus. Be careful, a sequence is hidden after the end credits.
Patience, the end credits of blockbusters are long, but some have some surprises in store. The process is not new, yet it is becoming recurrent, especially on the side of Marvel productions which have made it a real tradition. Matrix Resurrections, in theaters from December 22, is added to the list of feature films that conceal, for the most curious, a bonus in its last seconds.
This is not the first time that a film Matrix lends itself to the game. Those who saw the second part when it was released in 2003 certainly remember it. After the credits of Matrix Reloaded, Warner Bros. Studios unveil the trailer for the next opus, Matrix Revolutions, due a few months later. Images present in the cinema version, but also on video media.
Attention, the following paragraph reveals the post-generic scene of Matrix Resurrections. If you don’t want to know its contents, there is still time to turn around.
It only lasts a few seconds, but should get some smiles. In this additional footage, Lana Wachowski continues the fiery conversation of the makers of the upcoming video game Matrix. Around the table, the debate of ideas continues and everyone tries to find the ultimate solution to revolutionize the franchise and win over new fans.
One of the designers holds up his cell phone and offers to capitalize on what obsesses many Internet users: the animated images of kittens. He then puts forward the idea of renaming the saga “Catrix”. The sequence admittedly doesn’t offer anything new to the story and doesn’t contain any major characters, but is still a fun nod.
For the director, it is an opportunity to extend one of the best scenes of the film, but also to insist on her speech. Among the many themes that run through Matrix Resurrections, one of them points the finger at those who try to appropriate a work that does not belong to them in order to distort it and derive profits from it. A situation that Lana Wachowski and her sister, Lilly Wachowski, know all too well in Hollywood.
