‘The Matrix’ is rebooting – but not all movies in the trilogy are created equal

The last time The Matrix hit theaters Beyoncé released her first solo album and Jessica Simpson debuted with then-husband Nick Lachey.

You could say it’s been a while since we last took the red pill.

Like other pop culture hits of the past decades, “The Matrix” is getting a reboot. While the fourth film is in development and details are scarce, fans are eagerly awaiting the new story which is sixteen years overdue.

Until more is known or a trailer is released, let’s take a look at how the rest of the movies performed at the box office nationally and internationally.

3. Matrix revolutions (2003)

United States: $ 139,313,948

Worldwide: $ 427,343,298

While this is a beloved trilogy, there is always a loser. And since finishing a series is always a difficult task, the box office saw it as a bummer. It grossed $ 139,313,948 at the domestic box office and $ 427,343,298 globally.

Audiences were greeted in a dystopian world overrun with robots and harsh VR, it’s up to Neo (Keanu Reeves) to save the world, once again.

2. The matrix (1999)

United States: $ 171,479,930

Worldwide: $ 463,517,383

The debut of “The Matrix” was very successful as an intro sci-fi film. It topped the third film in the trilogy by $ 32,165,982 nationally and $ 36,174,085 globally, but only remains in second place.

Audiences quickly became fans of an underworld filled with epic fight scenes, mystery, and futuristic spy.

1. The Matrix Reloaded (2003)

United States: $ 281,576,461

Worldwide: $ 742,128,461

“The Matrix Reloaded” achieved a feat that sequels rarely do: beat the original by a wide margin. He earned $ 110,096,531 more than his predecessor and $ 142,262,513 more than his successor. Compared to the previous two global box office wins, this film grossed over $ 300 million more.

Audiences follow the iconic trio as they lead a revolt against the Machine Army and use their extraordinary skills and strategic mind in the ultimate fight against oppression and human extinction.
