The Matrix Resurrections, starring Keanu Reeves, is without a doubt the most eagerly awaited film of the year. This year, the film will premiere on December 22nd, a weekday rather than a weekend, right before Christmas.
This is an odd opening time for a film, considering most of the country is closed on Friday, and it has skewed the box office projections. If you’re curious about how much the much-anticipated The Matrix instalment will be able to earn, this article will give you the answer. So stick with it till the end.
What Is The Box Office Prediction For This Year’s Most Anticipated Film?
Boxoffice Pro predicted in December that the picture will gross between $35 and $50 million in its first three days, which is a very small figure given its weekday release. It is also expected that the total amount collected from domestic sources would be between $95 and $135 million.
It’s partly because the sci-fi filmmakers will be up against stiff competition from the recently released Spider-Man: No Way Home, which is expected to gross between $520 million and $690 million. Furthermore, the fourth film in The Matrix franchise will be released on HBO Max at the same time, causing many people to choose online streaming over going to the theatre.
However, these are merely estimates, and actual figures may change based on the movie’s ongoing advertising, which are now in full gear. So here’s hoping for a great win for our favourite hero film!
What Will The Matrix Resurrections Be About?
The narrative of the film takes place twenty years after the last instalment, The Matrix Revolutions. Neo currently lives in San Francisco as Thomas A. Anderson, with his blue tablets given by a therapist.
He happens to run across Trinity, who seemed to have forgotten about each other. However, Morpheus offers Neo red tablets, which allow him to enter the Matrix, which has now become more deadly as a result of the Smith virus.
Who can be seen in it all?
The Matrix Resurrections: We already knew that our favourites Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss will be reprising their roles as Thomas Anderson’s Neo and Trinity, respectively, after seeing the teaser. Jada Pinkett Smith will reprise her role as Niobe, which she played in the previous two films.
Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Priyanka Chopra Jonas, Jonathan Groff, Jessica Henwick, Neil Patrick Harris, Lambert Wilson, Eréndira Ibarra, Daniel Bernhardt, and others will be among the members.
Where can you watch it?
The Matrix Resurrections was originally scheduled to be released in May 2021, but due to pandemic concerns, it was put back to April of the following year. But, in the end, a date was set for December 2021. As previously indicated, The Matrix Resurrections will have a hybrid opening.
This implies that on December 22, 2021, Warner Bros. Pictures will debut it simultaneously on the big screen and on the OTT platform HBO Max. The Matrix Resurrections will be available on the streamer for a month and will be included in the service’s ad-free tier plan.
