the matrix 4 production

It can’t be overstated how wildly influential the style of the original The Matrix films were. From their revolutionary tech (bullet time!), to their pioneering of Hong Kong-style action in Hollywood, to those sleek leather jackets that everyone and their mother started wearing, the Matrix films’ visual identity defined a generation. But times change, and 17 years have passed since The Matrix films were on the cutting edge. So naturally, they would shift gears with The Matrix 4, as teased by Neil Patrick Harris, who plays a “small part” in the highly anticipated film.
