Is There a New MATRIX Trilogy in Development?

We don’t usually like to post rumors and headlines that require question marks, but a new Matrix trilogy now has my attention.  Looking at all this now, it would be safe to say that it was inevitable and no surprise to anyone, but I actually would be surprised to see a new trilogy.

With sequels, reboots, remakes and franchises the goal of most major studios today, it’s easy to point to The Matrix as an easy property to work with again.  If you ask me though, I enjoyed the full trilogy as one solid story that was perfectly paced and brought to life by the Wachowski’s.  It doesn’t need another chapter, but if the folks behind the originals have something more to say, let’s hear them out.

Latino Review is reporting that writers/directors Lana Wachowski and Andy Wachowski are currently developing a new trilogy of Matrix films, with treatments and outlines already being handed into the studio.  So we don’t know if it happening or who will direct, again this is just a single report at this point.  For all we know they could be working on a TV series, which would be interesting to see.

The box office hasn’t been kind to the great work Lana Wachowski and Andy Wachowski provide, Speed Racer and Cloud Atlas were viewing pleasures but not lucrative enough to be called successes unfortunately.  Do they need to re-visit The Matrix universe to gain trust again?  This summer’s Jupiter Ascending might have a lot riding on it if they want a studios trust.

Do we need another Matrix movie?

Trailer for SILENT HILL: REVELATION 3D

Monday, July 30th, 2012

The first trailer for Silent Hill: Revelation 3D is here, a sequel to 2006’s Silent Hill that I didn’t see.  The first minute of the trailer had me thinking it was a Nightmare on Elm Street movie, and then it got bad.  The in your face 3D action is also a little played these days I think.  They have 3D in the title; they didn’t have to show the overuse of it here.

Game of Thrones fans will recognize Sean Bean and Kit Harington, so there’s that.  Silent Hill: Revelation 3D opens on October 26th, 2012.

In SILENT HILL: REVELATION 3D, Heather Mason (Clemens) and her father (Bean) have been on the run, always one step ahead of dangerous forces that she doesn’t fully understand.  On the eve of her 18th birthday, plagued by horrific nightmares and the disappearance of her father, Heather discovers she’s not who she thinks she is.  The revelation leads her deeper into a demonic world that threatens to trap her forever.

Trailer for ‘Fireflies in the Garden’ Starring Ryan Reynolds and Willem Dafoe

Fireflies

Here’s a trailer for writer/director Dennis Lee’s Fireflies in the Garden starring Ryan Reynolds, Willem Dafoe, Julia Roberts, Emily Watson, Carrie-Anne Moss, and Hayden Panettiere.  Oddly enough the movie was finished in 2008 and is only now getting a fall release here after it premiered at the 2008 Berlin International Film Festival.  Is the final product that bad?  The trailer makes it look like a decent drama; the tension is certainly there between Dafoe and Reynolds.

Fireflies in the Garden is set in the present day, and revolves around three generations of a family, with flash-backs to their growing up. A major focus is on domineering father Charles (Willem Dafoe) and his strained relationships with son Michael (young: Cayden Boyd; adult: Ryan Reynolds), sister-in-law Jane (young: Hayden Panettiere; adult: Emily Watson) and other family members.

Fireflies in the Garden will open to select markets on October 14th. Here’s the trailer:
