Rather see a film that uncovers the relationship with dark energy and the way nature has evolved. Cycles. Rather see another Tron film. (My favorite IMAX experience) Rather see an Avatar sequel. Cameron does synthetic better than anyone.... Rather go see Skull Island again next week on six buck Tuesdays. Rather see another Mad Max. Dave Douglas score for The Matrix was fabulous. Why don't we see his name on film credits now?

It has been 3 yrs since they remade Spider Man for the 20th time. Perhaps they should redo it?

Would rather see more realistic human space faring stories. No fantasy, just near future stuff. They should "science the shit out of it."

Just looks like another studio who can't think of any new ideas and won't take a chance on bringing in someone or something new. I enjoyed the original Matrix movie. It was done well, the story was interesting, and it had a good ending. By redoing it, the whole surprise of the story would be gone. They've already tried to make 2 sequels and they were terrible. Personally, I find movies like the Matrix and Inception should be left alone once they've been done. Once you know the ending, any sequel/reboot is going to lack the impact of the original.

Matrix reboot? Ha! This will purposely remove most of the revolutionary ideals in the movie and focus more on the "evil guy/girl/thing. They did the same with Rollerball, Planet of the Apes, etc. Hollywood and the music corps are hugely responsible for the dumbing down of the people. They are corporations after all and don't give a shit about ideals unles it's LGTB rights or some other divisive agenda. I'll probably get the usual 10+ thumbs down, maybe many are just too young to remember how good Hollywood was in the 70's. And this is NOT for a lack of imagination in the scripts. Hollywood is just one member in the global Corp oligarchy along with FOXMSNBCCNN, the Dems, the Reps, the banksters, the lobbyists; all to turn you into this! A happy consumer living in quiet desperation.

Since when is the truth vulgar?

Moderator: Truth? Weird remark from you. The word "shit" is offensive, as you very well know.

IT's been about 20 years so time now for the usual somewhat average to poor reboot / remake / rewhatever to milk it from the new generation. Groan. But, of course, I'll have to check it out. That's how they cash in.

"After all, many have recently suggested the world has tipped into a simulated reality of its own." Citation needed.

The Matrix is just an unoriginal rehashing of Buddhist theory with a goth fashion aesthetic and a techno soundtrack. It shouldn't be remade not because there is something sacred to the original, but because there is nothing of substance to remake. Gullible audiences got taken in by the white room CGI gun catalog scene and failed to notice there was nothing else to the franchise until sequels featuring Santa Claus in the shopping mall electronics section and Elrond-with-fake-eyes drove the point home that this was a series cribbing notes from someone else's big ideas and nothing original to sustain itself. Let it die the death it deserves along with everything else pretentious and empty from the 90s.

Please don't! There was one original Picasso, one original Einstein, there should be one original Matrix, don't reinvent the wheel.

I would easily welcome a Matrix reboot, however pretty much all remakes and reboots and adaptations in the past few years have been such shocking garbage that I probably wouldn't even be bothered to watch it. There is just so much crap coming out recently..

If anything, they should do a sequel. The Matrix #2 to be specific. Pretend the other two sequels never happened, and make something that actually makes sense.

Another sign that Hollywood ran out of idea.

@Strangerland. That makes no sense.
