THE MATRIX Turns 15 Today!
By Merrill Barr on March 31, 2014
Back in March of 1999, audiences were given a choice: do they take the blue pill and wake up comfortably in their bed thinking everything was just a bad dream, or do they take the red pill and launch the last great pre-comic-book era franchise? Luckily for us, they chose the latter, and The Matrix was born.
Now, 15 years and two sequels later, series creators The Wachowskis are on the cusp of releasing an all new sci-fi flick, Jupiter Ascending, and are rumored to be hard at work on a brand new trilogy of Matrix films for Warner Brothers. That sounds like a winning combination in our book. Just the simple fact that The Matrix gave us bullet-time is more than enough to honor it on its 15th birthday.
