Post Why have they not rebooted The Matrix yet?
Do they need the Wachowskis permission or afraid to do it without them? I was predicting this years ago but no word yet

- Great fit for visual blockbuster, unique/memorable concept and look, everyone still knows what the Matrix is and recognizes the brand. The best series for trailer spots ever.
- About right time for people to be nostalgic
- It would have done well internationally anyways but especially now considering this would make a shit ton in China
- Fishburne is available and Morpheus survived so that's easy supporting role until he's finally killed off. Maybe Agent Smith cameo. Neo is dead but you could bring him back if you really wanted for supporting role
- Easy to reboot storyline, the Matrix still existed at the end and humans are destined to get greedy leading to another war with the robots
- It really has the perfect fit for a title. The Matrix: Rebooted or some variation

That's a 1 billion worldwide per film franchise right there

They have very cleverly not brought it back because they probably know it will fail. Matrix was a product of its time. Let's leave it there.

Maybe the original is too classic for a reboot yet. It holds up like it could be released today and still be the success it was in whatever year it was released.

The Matrix: Rebooted would be a terrible title.

Because The Matrix crashed and burned like no other film series. The hype and anticipation for Reloaded was at fever pitch due to how beloved The Matrix was. But when Reloaded and its sequel didnt live up to expectations the franchise was almost forgotten overnight.

No doubt WB will go back to the Matrix well at some point though. If they can somehow connect back to the first film - they could have a winner.

Matrix Reloaded would do well with some future audience perhaps thousands of years from now. It’s society that failed.
