Film Franchises: The Matrix Series (Guns. Lots of Guns.)

Here’s the newest edition of my Film Franchise series over at That Moment In. This time, the featured franchise is The Matrix

That Moment

Over the years, many studios have tried to find ways to take the same idea that worked once, switch it around a bit and then re-market it as a sequel or even a remake.


This week, let’s feature a series whose original movie was so innovative and original that it is hailed as one of the best sci-fi movies of the 90’s. It includes two sequels that tried to match both the financial and critical success of the original. Of course we’re talking about The Matrix Series.

Here’s a bit of stats about the 3 movies (Figures from BoxOffice Mojo)
